Located on the legendary Boston Harbor, Hingham is famous for 2 major reasons – its rich colonial history and great fishing. If you’re looking for an ultimate experience fishing these bountiful waters, look no further than Snap Shot Charters!

Captain Eric Kulin has been a guide for 15 years, and fishing is his greatest passion, followed by photography. He used to be a professional photographer so you can expect to get the best of both worlds – the biggest catch and the best photos to show off to your friends.

Your boat for the day will be a 28’ Contender center console that can comfortably carry up to 6 anglers of all ages and skill levels. It comes powered by twin 300 HP Suzuki engines and features a live bait tank, an icebox, and top-notch marine electronics and safety gear.

Captain Eric will do everything in his power to put you on the biggest species in the area, including giant Striped Bass, Black Seabass, Bluefish, and Cod. Armed with light tackle gear, you’ll get to try a variety of techniques, such as bottom fishing, spinning, and even fly fishing. The latter is an option on every trip – the captain loves to fly fish and provides top-notch gear by Orvis.

You’ll also be supplied with the best conventional tackle – Shimano reels and St. Croix rods, as well as lures. Live bait is rarely used, though it can be made available upon request. Drinks and licenses are also included in the price. 

The captain is a big supporter of catch and release, but if you really want to, you can keep your catch, and he will gladly clean it for you. 

Snap Shot Charters will make sure you don’t lack anything for a perfect day on the water!

My name is Eric Kulin...my 2 biggest passions are fishing and photography. I have been shooting and fishing the northeast for 25 years. In 2001 Snap Shot Charters was founded to combine my life with my lifestyle. Now, I look to share those experiences by taking clients fishing where the fishing is best, Boston to Cape Cod. Please give me a call to schedule your next adventure. We'll put a plan together that will make your experience on the water unforgettable.
