Wildly Successful Ocean Adventures

213 Pleasant Street
Eliot ME, United States

Wildly Successful Ocean Adventures is run by Captain Steven McDonough, a highly experienced captain who knows how to put you on some exciting fish. He offers flexible inshore and offshore charters from the Piscataqua River, launching out of either Portsmouth & Rye in New Hampshire, or from Kittery & Eliot in Maine.

Join Capt. Steven aboard the ‘F/V Fools Gold’, a recently restored 30’ Repco boat that is ready to take you on a full day of fun. To get you to the action, it is powered by a 130HP Isuzu engine, and is equipped with GPS, fishfinder, radar and VHF radio. Its spacious deck is perfect for up to four anglers, and the boat also features a live bait tank, and all necessary safety gear.

Wildly Successful Ocean Adventures specializes in heavy tackle, bottom fishing, jigging and drift fishing. Capt. Steven will take you out on a flexible full day trip, where you can choose between river fishing for Striped Bass, ground fishing for species such as Cod, Haddock, and Pollock, or big game fishing for Tuna, Shark and Halibut, and more. For something different, you can try out some Lobster trap hauling, or for those looking to relax, Capt. Steven can take you Whale and Seal watching or on a scenic river cruise. Trips include rods, reels and tackle, lures, live bait, fishing licenses, and cleaning and filleting of your catch at the end of the trip. All you need to bring is your lunch, appropriate clothing and sunscreen.

Join Wildly Successful Ocean Adventures for some wildly successful fishing charters on the productive Maine and New Hampshire waters.
