Wine Down Charters is starting its first year hosting fishing and sightseeing charters. Captain Bill Silva has been fishing for years and now he’s determined to follow his passion and start guiding trips professionally. Based in Hingham, MA, he’s blessed with a year-round fishing season and can take you on an adventure any time.

Hop aboard a 28’ Shannon Brendan boat that accommodates up to 6 guests. There’s enough room for everyone to fish in comfort and catch their own trophy. The boat is powered by twin 250 HP Detroit engine that will take you to any fishing spot fast. You’ll also find a private toilet and basic kitchen appliances on board.

Choose the trip depending on the fish you want to catch. There are specialized tours for Haddock, Striped Bass, and Bluefish. You can also go after Flounder and Black Seabass as an addition. It’s good to know that most of these fish are very tasty, since you get to keep them after the trip. Capt Bill cleans your catch too, so you’ll leave the boat with clean and fresh fish fillets. In the end, you are welcome to leave a 20% tip for the crew!

All rods and reels are fully covered and included in the price. You only need to bring your snacks and drinks for the day. It’s always recommended to bring a hat and sunglasses, so you can spot the fish more easily.

Wine Down Charters looks forward to sharing their passion for the water and fishing with you!
