Welcome to Peak Fishing Charters!

My name is Seth Nichols. I have held a commercial fishing permit since the age of 14, and have made my living on the water ever since. I operate a 28’ Contender that I trailer daily. Chartering out of a fast center console on a trailer allows us to chase the bite to wherever the fishing is best.

I specialize in targeting Bluefin tuna, both Giants and school sized fish, as well as light tackle fishing for Striped Bass. My inshore trips are a great option for families, first time fisherman, as well as for experienced fisherman looking to land trophy striped bass on light tackle. My offshore trips are more suited to experienced fisherman. Chasing Bluefin requires a long day on the water.

Whether you are a first time fisherman, or an experienced angler, I can customize a trip to best suit your needs. Feel free to reach out with any questions! I hope to see you on the water!

    This trip often departs before sunrise and lasts 10+hours. The trip targets 73”+ Bluefin Tuna. Please note that all Bluefins over 73” MUST be either sold by the boat, or released if a commercial sale is not permitted on that day. The charter is paying for the experience, not to bring home meat from a 73” or a larger Bluefin. This is the Law, and not up for discussion. The maximum capacity of this trip is 4 people.
