Manolin Charters

54r Merrimac St.
Newburyport MA, United States

Manolin Charters specializes in light tackle fishing out of Newburyport MA for Striped Bass, Bluefish, Sharks, and Tuna. They offer Inshore and Offshore trips of different lengths to help you get exactly the experience you are looking for, whether you want a morning out catching Bass or a full day trying to land a prize Tuna.

The Parker 23SE Center Console “Mary Jocelyn” is a no-nonsense fishing vessel powered by a Yamaha 150 Four Stroke. She cruises at a brisk 24 knots with a top speed of just under 40. The flat deck and wide build give 4 or 5 Anglers plenty of fishing room and 360 degree access. She is versatile enough to fish in under 4 feet of water or to travel 50 miles in search of pelagic fish all while providing a safe, comfortable ride.

Captain Chris has over 20 years experience in the area and he puts every ounce of that local knowledge into play on every trip, making sure you have the best possible opportunity to land the fish you’re looking for.
