Bounty Hunter Charters

56 Goulart Memorial Drive
Fairhaven MA, United States

Capt. Eric Morrow owns and operates Bounty Hunter Charters, a fleet of 3 boats from 30 to 35 ft.  Capt. Eric has been fishing since he could stand in the playpen of his dads boat.  Capt. Eric is a graduate of Massachusetts Maritime Academy, and holds and Unlimited tonnage license.  During the winter months he sails around the world on various merchant ships up to 890 ft. long, while wetting a line whenever the opportunity arises.  We are know as the areas bottom fishing specialist, we utilize a two anchor system that allows up to fish the smallest of pieces of bottom, that the average boat could never get on.  During the summer months we offer shark cage diving excursions with two of our boats, and its safe to say we have at least one vessel on the offshore grounds daily. This really puts us on the know, when it comes to our offshore fishing trips for Shark, Tuna, Mahi, Etc..  During the fall we move the boats to RI to target blackfish, we fish numerous pieces of bottom in up to 70 ft., that only require 2 to 3 oz sinker. If you are into Tog Jigging, its a true paridise.

It’s fair to say Captain Eric has spent all his life on boats, almost. As a young child, he started fishing from his playpen on his father’s boat, and he started working as a mate at the age of 14, using a skiff to commute to work. He later earned a degree from Massachusetts Maritime Academy, Buzzards Bay, Massachusetts, and then became a deck officer in the U.S. Merchant Marines. Now when he is not at sea he is in Massachusetts running Bounty Hunter Charters.

The night before our trip, captain Eric called to say his boat is having engine trouble, he connected us with captain Josh, this turn out to be my best fishing experience to date. I’m yet to meet captain Eric however, thanks for arranging this awesome fishing experience.
