MIss Jodine in Little Harbor New Castle New Hampshire  
Enjoy World Class Fly/Light Tackle charter fishing along the coastline of New Hampshire/Maine and in the Piscataqua River/Portsmouth Harbor. The coastline and estuary supports a wide range of species including Striped Bass,Bluefish, Mackerel and the highly sought after school Bluefin Tuna. There are many miles of tidal rips,beaches,sandy flats and rocky coastlines which provide many angling opportunities for light tackle fishing. I fish the historic coastline home to many lighthouses,colonial forts and scenic 18th century homes.
Fishing is done from the Miss Jodine a 23 Mako customized for Fly and Light Tackle angling with a  four stroke  225HP Yamaha outboard . I have the ability to fish the shallow in shore areas along with offshore areas.
