The captain’s only goal is to make your trip a memorable one, so join in and have a true fishing adventure in Sayerville!

Scaled Up Fishing Charters uses a 37’ Pacemaker offshore sport fishing boat that can accommodate 6 passengers comfortably. Its cockpit’s large with plenty of fishing room and its facilities include a flybridge, kitchen, toilet, shower, and beds. The boat is air-conditioned and features a TV, refrigerator, and an ice-box. It runs a twin 450 HP Cummins engine and uses all the modern Garmin and Icon technology for navigation. The onboard fishing gear includes outriggers and a livewell. On board will also be a first mate.

There’s a huge choice of fishing techniques you can try your hand at. Bottom and deep sea fishing, trolling, jigging, spinning, popping, fly fishing, drift fishing, and even spearfishing will all be available to you as you search the water. Some of the quality species you can target include Tuna, White Marlin, Mako Shark, Cod, Mahi, and many more. You can keep the fish you catch as well as bring kids on your trip.

Captain George covers you for the tackle, bait, licenses, and catch cleaning, meaning you should only bring fly fishing equipment and the food and drinks of your choice.

Come aboard and enjoy a terrific fishing adventure with Scaled Up Fishing Charters!
