On The Side Charters operates out of the historic town of Newburyport, MA, offering a variety of fishing trips from 3 to 10 hours. The waters around Newburyport are teeming with a wide range of species, and On The Side Charters makes the most of this fact, by offering trips targeting anything from Mackerel and Flounder in the shallows, to huge Sharks and monster Bluefin Tuna way out into the ocean.
The boat you will be spending the day on is a 29’ Webbers Coast downeast with room aboard for up to 6 guests. She’s powered by an impressive 280 HP General Motors engine, meaning you will waste no time getting to the best fishing grounds offshore, and comes equipped with everything you will need for some awesome fishing.
The vessel features all-new Simrad electronics, with CHIRP sonar to allow the best possible view of what lurks beneath you. Once you’re locked in on your catch, a choice of realistic lures and live bait fresh from the tank will be too tempting for any fish to ignore, and the vessel’s tournament grade tackle will give you the best chance of landing whatever you sink your hook into.
Captain Jonathan Carey takes pride in offering one of the best selections of trips around, welcoming clients aboard for anything from 3-hour stints after work catching tasty Striped Bass for dinner, to 10-hour offshore adventures doing battle with giant Bluefin Tuna. In order to be productive targeting so many species, he offers a choice of light and heavy tackle, with the option to troll, spin, jig, and pop, as well as to drift, fly, and kite fish.
Even if fishing is not your thing, On The Side Charters have the perfect trip for you, taking in the Newburyport waterfront on a 2-hour sunset cruise. No matter what trip you choose, Captain John will work with you to make sure it is exactly what you are looking for. On offshore trips, all large Bluefin are kept by the boat, but Captain John will give you a 10% discount on your next trip.
