“We always stack fish like cord wood with Hairball Charters!”
Review of Hairball Charters

Hairball Charters
Reviewed 7 June 2013

This last trip was our third time fishing with Hairball Charters, and we have already started planning our next. Once again Captain Eric Stapelfeld put us on big fish immediately. Between Eric and his deck hand Ryan, their experience and knowledge will make even the novice fisherman or women feel and look like a pro. Great guys and a ton of fun to be around! They have all the gear and do all the dirty work that fishing involves, all you have to do is crank them in,and take pictures of your trophies! Can't wait to go back!

My husband and I have chartered with Eric and his crew since 2006 and have always come back with an amazing catch! We try to book in early January as he fills up quickly. Eric is fastidious about the quality of the fish and ensures that we get the freshest fillets possible. He does all the hard work, we just enjoy the fishing and reeling! There are now two boats available, but we have only been on the small one which holds about 6 people. There are typically 4-5 of us fishing and within 1-2 hours we have our full catch of stripers, then we catch and release. We will also grab a few blues before we come back into port. Eric fillets all the fish and we typically have enough to last us 6-8 months. We have not yet tried the bigger boat or the tuna fishing, but one of these days, we will! Eric has been on the ocean his whole life, and knows the trends of the fishing season very well...he knows where and when they bite and who bites what! we have never been disappointed with our catch and look forward to our charter evey summer!
