An Ocean Experience Like No Other
Come join us to explore the waters around historic Gloucester Massachusetts. We offer private fishing charters, harbor and sunset tours for up to six.
We also provide lobster tours.  See how lobsters are harvested from the icy waters of the Atlantic while enjoying a scenic tour of Gloucester Harbor

The Boat

 We’ll be on the water in our 25 foot Cobia Center Console.  This boat is roomy and safe; it can get us to the fishing grounds in a hurry.

The Captain

 Thank you for stopping by the LAG Time Charters web site. There are many charter opportunities in Gloucester and on Cape Ann.  We hope you choose to tour our scenic harbor and coastline or experience fishing with us!

I am the owner of LAG Time Charters; I’m a lifelong Gloucester resident and have been fishing since I’ve been old enough to hold a fishing rod. I worked at Gorton’s in Gloucester for 39 years and retired at the end of 2016 to combine my passion for the ocean and fishing by starting LAG Time Charters.  (Life After Gorton’s).

In preparation for my new career I obtained my U.S.C.G. license in 2016. But don’t worry; I have been fishing the waters off Cape Ann for 20 years for Striped Bass and Bluefish in a variety of boats.  I have a perfect safety record.  Safety has been and always will be my first priority.
