Lady Ann Charters

A fishing fanatic or just curious to try it out? Lady Ann Charters has you covered whatever you’re looking for. Operating out of Salem, MA, trips run in the local harbor, as well as offshore, targeting a range of different species. Captain Josh Thibaudeau has been fishing all his life and decided to turn his hobby into a profession in 2008. On every charter, he’ll do his best to get you on the fish and reeling in as many delicious fish as possible.

Trips take place aboard a spacious 25’ C-Hawk pilothouse boat. Restored in 2017, she’s a modern vessel, and features all the necessary navigational and safety equipment. Up to 4 guests are welcome aboard to engage in some excellent fishing, and there’s plenty of covered and uncovered space in which to relax. Powered by a 250 HP Mercury engine, you’ll speed off from the marina to the most productive spots to get your fish on.

From 2-hour trips targeting Lobster in the harbor to full day trips offshore, there’s something for everyone. You can target Striped Bass in the nearshore waters, while up to 40 miles offshore, you’ll target the exceptional-tasting Haddock and Pollock. These table favorites will provide you with a tantalizing treat at the end of a successful day. Of course, the captain or his first mate will clean and prepare your catch for you to take home with you.

Everything you need for a productive day on the water is provided, including the latest rods, reels, and tackle. All that’s left for you to do is bring some food and drinks, and some sunscreen, and get ready to settle in for a fun day’s fishing. The whole family is welcome aboard with Lady Ann Charters, so get the little ones hooked, as well. Capt. Josh is calling you aboard to make some lifelong memories.

Having fished all his life, Capt. Josh decided to make a profession out of his passion in 2008. He still gets the same thrill today out of teaching people his best tricks to reel in some exciting fish. He loves meeting new people and sharing his passion with them, hopefully getting them hooked on fishing in the process.
