“Awesome Trip on Magellan”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

It was my brother-in-law's 60th birthday and we surprised him with the charter on Magellan. We had been talking about doing it for years but steadfastly continued going out on our own and doing just ok. We got spoiled with Capt. Jason. Started off with Jason reviewing the gear and laying out the first plug at the first rip, he handed it to my brother-in-law and bam within seconds he had a huge fluke on the line. We fished that spot which was full of blues until we were exhausted. Jason said he had a spot further out he knew we would get stripers. He was spot on! The run out there was totally worth it. We limited out with the biggest stripers we've ever caught. Jason was excellent, worked the boat superbly around the rips with ease while re-rigging lines and taking fish off the hook. My brother-in-law said it was the best day fishing he ever had. Thanks guys for making us look good for selecting you for his birthday trip. Should have done this years ago. Definitely coming back next year for tuna!!

“Another Great Trip on the Magellan!”
Reviewed 14 August 2013

We're repeat customers and will continue to use the Magellan yearly. We caught the boat limit on Stripers plus all the Blue Fish we wanted. These guys know how to fish and more importantly where to fish. Len & Jason are top notch. Use these guys, you won't be disappointed!

“Came back with a boatload of fish!”
Reviewed 14 July 2013

Just got back from a fun afternoon with a bunch of friends on the Magellan. What a great time. We started off the tip of Monomoy... but Captain Len quickly observed other boats and wasted no time concluding that the fish weren't biting there. So we headed north to cooler waters. 30 minutes later we were pulling in the big boys, and caught our legal limit of stripers before the sun went down. It was amazing to watch Captain Len maintain the boat into the optimal position, while at the same time keeping all of us equiped with a good jig in the right spot... and entertaining us with his great sense of humor. This was my first trip deep sea fishing.....and I will be back aboard the Magellan soon. If you book the Magellan and you won't be disappointed.

“The fishing was great everything else was fine”
Reviewed 24 April 2013

The entire fishing trip has always been great. We have been going out on the Magellan most summers for the past 12 years.

It has always been fun. The Captain seems to know where the best spots are for striper and bluefish. There are times when others told us the striper were not hitting, but we have never failed to catch them.

The Magellan is clean and comfortable.

“Fun Day Out”
Reviewed 11 March 2013

We had a great time. We could hardly get our lines in the water before we were getting another hit. Captain Len and crew made sure we had everything we needed and made a great day fishing lots of fun. I would highly recommend a trip on the Magellan and cannot wait to bring my son out again.
