36" Halibut caught aboard the Erica Lee II
This one was safely returned to the sea to grow a bit.


    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 Bishop has been fishing in the waters off of Plum Island and Newburyport for over 35 years. 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 on the Newburyport, MA waterfront.  The waters off of Newburyport and Plum Island are known for spectacular deep-sea fishing and  Capt. Bob Bishop 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!

 Consider a Sunset Cruise with friendsOr.....you can choose to end your day with us on a spectacular sunset cruise.
