About Us/Rates

Captain Reilly McCue is a fully insured United States Coast Guard Captain. He currently holds a Near-Coastal Master License. Captain McCue has a deep seeded interest in the New England out of doors.

He studied wildlife biology at U.V.M. and currently manages Spikehorn Ridge Inc. (, a family run outdoor guide service in Vermont. The world class fishery and waterfowling of Northern New England's coast is Reilly's true passion and he invites you to join him for a day of exploration that will bring you back to this area for years.

The boats that we use are ideal for shallow flats fishing and offer the most stable casting platforms on the market. We run 16 to 20 foot G3 boats equipped with 40 to 115 horsepower yamaha jet motors. These setups allow us to access truly "skinny" water where these fish are most commonly found feeding. We also provide rods, reels, lines, leaders, flies and all other terminal tackle on all of our fishing excursions. Along with a boat, fly and spinning gear, and terminal tackle, we provide a United States Coast Guard Captain who is on the water fishing and studying the feeding patterns of these fish day in and day out.

We do two 7 hour charters daily, one from first light until noon and the other from 1pm until 8 pm. A seven hour fishing excursion runs for $450 and holds a space for two anglers. Additional anglers may be included for an additional $75 per person. At time of reservation, we ask for a $150 deposit. This year we are also offering a 5 day discount package where a purchase of 5 or more charters will only run you $350 per charter and are good for the duration of the season. Feel free to ask about customizing your trip to the time of day, night, tide and length that you are looking for!

This amazing fishery is just north of Boston's Logan Airport and only 3 and 1/2 hours outside of New York City. We use several different boat launches to the north and south of Plum Island depending on where the fish are biting the best and will provide detailed directions to the launch in the days prior to your trip.
