Join Obsessed Charters and Captain Peter Murray on a fishing adventure just off the coast of Plum Island, MA. Peter has more than two decades of charter experience and likes working with anglers of all skill levels. As a native of Plum Island, he has a deep knowledge of the surrounding waters and will be happy to show you his favorite sports.

The Obsessed is a 25’ Parker center console, powered by a 225 HP Honda engine. She has enough room for up to six anglers to fish in comfort, making it a perfect choice for outings with friends or family. A livewell for bait and an ice box for the catch are also present aboard, as well as all the necessary safety and navigation equipment.

Captain Peter specializes in catching Striped Bass and Bluefish on his trips and has a lot of tools at his disposal. Depending on what your preferences are, and what the situation calls for, he uses light tackle with live bait, topwater lures, and soft plastics. Fly fishermen are also welcome but will need to bring their own fly gear.

The price of a trip will include rods, reels, and terminal tackle, as well as all the necessary fishing licenses. The crew will clean your catch after the trip so you don’t have to. All that’s left to do is bring some drinks, snacks, a pair of polarized sunglasses, and get ready to have some fun.

The captain was very knowledgeable of the area in which we fished. He promised us fish and that’s exactly what we got! Although we were only able to keep one of the EIGHT fish that we captured, the captain was very informative of the policies and fines that would follow if we had kept any fish that was under the 29 inch regulation. The captain was polite and very helpful when one of us got snagged by a rock or weed. Thank you for making our first charter experience one to remember for a lifetime!
