The digital image (I love this picture and probably won't change it unless we have a better Ultra in the future - here's hoping!) above was taken during our longest offshore trip (twenty-four hours) called the ultra marathon. This one, on July 19, 2005, was probably the most fun of all our previous (and later) Ultras. We caught many fish - from start to finish - with some breaks (travel between spots, mostly), the weather was perfect and the ocean was calm. Some of the best anglers I have ever known appear in the shot above. From right to left are Bob Withee (NH), to his left is Don Johnson (MA), Jim Feeney (MA) appears next to Don, Fred Kunz (NH) has the blue knife on his belt in the corner and Tim Williams (CT) has just hooked into a big one on the stern. All these anglers are hooked up to cod in the 30 pound range (more or less). It was the one time this year that I had the camera at the right time. The Ultra is much like our other marathons with slightly less anglers and almost a full twenty-four hour day on the water. Tickets for the Ultra are by invitation only.

2012 Season Schedule and Rates

April 9 through November 5 Daily

Edited January 15, 2012
Note: Note: Reservations for the 2012 season will be commencing on Wednesday, February 1, 2012 at 12:01 AM local time or 0001 EST. Reservations will not be accepted "in person", "email" or "by letter" until February 2, 2012. Ticket prices have remained the same as they were last season. We reserve the right to add a fuel surcharge during the 2012 season if prices escalate to a figure over $4.00/gallon.

FULL DAY FISHING TRIPS - 7:00 A.M. to 3 P.M. - $85.00/person(Max 30 passengers).
HALF DAY FISHING TRIPS - 4 P.M. to 8 P.M. - $50.00/person(Max.30 passengers).
EXTREME DAY FISHING TRIPS - 7 A.M. TO 5 P.M. - $125.00/person (Max 20 passengers). These trips were new in 2007 with only 26 pilot trips scheduled for that first year. This year (2012), we are running 77 Extreme Day trips (one less trip than last year). In addition, we experimented with adding more than two extra anglers on three separate occasions during the 2007 season. This didn't work. In 2008, we went back to the maximum number of anglers as advertised with much better results. We will keep the number at 20 passengers from now on, although, I (Tim Tower - no one else) reserve the right to add one more person to any trip we offer, and that policy still stands. These trips sell themselves on the extra room and extra time fishing. I don't want to disrupt this - so I won't!

The Extreme Day trip* dates for the 2012 fishing season are as follows:

April: 10,12,15,17,19,22,24,26 & 29

It is mandatory to call about departure times on any particular date you are interested in. If the weather is good and the fishing is better further offshore, we leave earlier (between 3 AM and 4 AM) in order to take advantage of calmer seas and faster cruising speeds.

Marathon Trips:

1. Persons must be at the dock 1 hour before departure.
