2010 Season! 
    Captain Satch and Sons... is very proud to announce the newest addition to our Family Friendly Fleet !


                                         The F/V  "Gath IV"

    3rd generation Hehir Family (MA) aboard the new boat.They have enjoyed fishing with us aboard the ol Gath before these kids were born.


The "Gath IV " is a newly retrofitted, pristine
conditioned, USCG inspected vessel certified to carry a maximum of 12 passengers. She will provide many new options for our guest's family fishing adventures. My dream is that she will continue to keep fishing personable and affordable for so many of our returning families can continue to enjoy that special day with us each season.

Our experienced crew will continue to provide the caring, professional, personal service you've come to expect on the "Gath III and the India Marie".

My oldest son,Captain Whit is the primary captain aboard the Gath IV.
2010 will mark his 9th season operating our families vessels. He holds 50 Ton USCG Masters license,a Maine Masters tidewater guides license, his 1st class Maine lobster license and a Masters of Education in counseling from Plymouth Sate University to boot.

So many families truly enjoy a day aboard with Captain Whit, he really cares and does his upmost to provide your children with a great experience and very often the largest fish of their lives as well!


Inshore Fishing: The "Gath IV" will depart daily and continue to offer our most popular four and six hour fishing trips for stripers, blues and mackerel. 
A maximum of 10 guests will fish with plenty of tangle free room and in the added comfort and convenience of a larger U.S. Coast Guard inspected vessel.


     We offer both four and six hour "open boat" inshore trips for stripers and blues every day during the busy summer season.

Offshore Fishing:
"The Gath IV " also has the capacity to join the "India Marie" to take guests offshore fishing for cod, haddock, pollock and shark. This summer we will offer both "family orientedhalf- day (6 Hour) deep sea fishing trips and full day (8 hr) deep sea fishing charters.
I expect these trips will be a big hit and a lot of fun for the kids.






Wells Harbor's 1st Ever Ecology Family Fishing and Lobster trips.. : "The Gath IV" allows families to explore Wells Bay's local ecology from a oceanside perpective on our discovery fishing and lobster trip.
