Morning Tauk Charters

With Morning Tauk Charters, the “Mecca of fishing” in New England can be all yours. Capt. Mike and his deckhands can make your fishing dreams come true while fully catering to your specific needs. Whether you want to catch your limits or break a personal record, you have found the right place.

Whichever fishing experience you’re hoping to get, rest assured that Capt. Mike will work hard to make it happen. His crew can customize a trip for you, all you have to do is just name it – a fine cigar, your favorite drinks, and playlist, or catering from a local restaurant. The right food, music, and beverages can make all the difference!

Morning Tauk Charters will welcome you aboard the ‘Line Changes’, a 30’ Carolina Classic. She is a spacious boat with twin 315 HP Yanmar engines and plenty of space for up to 6 anglers. The Line Changes is fully rigged with modern electronics, professional accessories, and top-notch tackle to make a great catch possible even up to 30 miles out.

If you want to introduce your kids to the art of fishing, Lobstering, tying, and navigation, there is a trip for you. Capt. Mike and his crew are better than babysitters and will teach the younger anglers to love and respect the ocean.

Or just head out for a healthy dose of anything from inshore Flounder, Striped Bass, and Bluefish to offshore Bluefin Tuna. Bottom fish for Cod, Haddock, Hake, Cusk, Pollock, and other species that are in season and biting. The opportunities abound!

The only thing those trip don’t include is a fishing license. Everything else will be provided – from snacks and drinks to quality tackle and catch cleaning service.

    This full-day trip is exactly what the doctor ordered for those Flounder fans. It's great for kids and anglers who want to stay inshore and don't want to go too far out. The 'doormats' bite best in and around the harbor from mid-May until late June but you could also go out until December.

    I will take up to 6 kids for a price lower than a full-day babysitter per kid. We teach them not only fishing but also tying/navigation/Lobstering, and most importantly, to love and respect the Ocean.
