Background
Fishing has been a part of my life since my dad showed me how to catch small brook trout in the mountains of Vermont and my grandfather showed me how to catch tarpon in Florida. I am in the woods hunting in the fall and on the water throughout the spring in to the fall... It's a passion not a hobby that I love to share with people!
Techniques
My favorite time of the year is June for stripers... drifting the mouth of the Merrimack River with live mackerel is awesome!

Went fishing on Sunday, June 11, 2017

Had an amazing trip this past Saturday. Went out grabbed about 10 haddock then came back and killed it on striper. Caught maybe 10 keeper sized fish and had a blast doing it.

I took my wife and 11 year old son fishing for a full day with captain John he was great very personable to talk to on the trip while driving he offered to let my son drive the boat but my son didn’t want to when it came to the fishing he baited the poles and showed us how to drop them there was three of us and him so we had four poles in the water he was baiting and fileting so the three of us worked the poles and we would drop one and reel one inthats how fast we were catching the fish we left with almost thirty pounds of meat it was a great experience and I think it will become an annual trip for us I would definitely recomend Parkhurst charters over the big boats you’re not fighting for a spot or anything and its relaxed and easy going.

I have done multiple trips on Parkhurst Charters and each one exceeded expectations. Not only have we caught our targeted fish on the multiple trips but learned a lot from the captain and crew and had a blast doing so. I would highly recommend using Parkhurst Charters.
