BOOK YOUR SPRING DEEP-SEA TRIP NOW
Bob attended a meeting today (2-15-13) run by the Recreational Advisory Panel for the New England Fishery Management Council.
The purpose of the meeting was to discuss the potential reacreational measures for FY 2013. Based on current data, the council is proposing the following measures:
9 Cod @ 19" per person
Unlimited catch on haddock @ 21" per person
Since the recreational fisheries did not catch their allocated pounds this past season, there is a possibility of having an extended season this year. We are not sure which end of the season this will affect, but will certainly be following the decisions as they are made.
Keep in mind that all of the above information is going to be presented by the New England Fishery Management Council to National Marine Fisheries Services and the final decision will be up to them.
In the meantime, charter dates are filling up - give Lee a call at
978-462-8859 to reserve your date.
This was probably 40 years ago - fixing the outboard!
Two children, three grandchildren and 6 boats
under his belt, Bob is still fixing something...
Fishing aboard the Erica Lee II is always an adventure. If you want to fish in comfort with lots of elbow room, the Erica Lee II is your boat. Captain Bob Yeomans has been fishing in the waters off of Plum Island and Newburyport for over 45 years. Some of our anglers have been with us since we started. The spring and fall deep-sea season offers some of the best catches in the colder water, while the summer season brings warm breezes, warmer water, whales and a steady catch of fish.
The 48' Erica Lee II is docked at The Black Cow restaurant on the Newburyport, MA waterfront. The waters off of Newburyport and Plum Island are known for spectacular deep-sea fishing and Capt. Bob Yeomans and crew are known for bringing that catch home.
We strive to make your trip as pleasant as possible. Our heated cabin and comfortable seating allow you to relax on the way to the fishing grounds out on Jeffreys Ledge.
Our skilled crew will expertly prepare your bait, gaff and fillet your fish and supply you with a never-ending banter of fishing trips gone by!
Our Spring Walkaboard Wednesday trips are a huge success. Walkaboard trips have resumed. No need to charter the whole boat, just call 978-462-8859 to reserve your space. Limited to 16 anglers. Erica Lee II fishing out of Newburyport, MA
Or.....you can choose to end your day with us on a spectacular sunset cruise.
