More Information

Come aboard the 100′ Yankee Freedom for some great fishing! Bait or jig fishing at its best, we will be targeting haddock, halibut, pollock, hake, cusk, red fish, and whiting at Cashes/Fippennies or cod on other trips. Unfortunately you are not able to keep cod on our Cashes/Fipps trips. Our range is beyond the normal day fishing areas.  We travel to areas that maximize the fishing opportunities for our anglers.

These trips on the Yankee Freedom only take a maximum of 40-45 anglers, this leaves plenty of elbow room on this 100 foot vessel. We fish 8 across the stern and only 18 – 19 on each side, which makes for a very comfortable fishing experience. We have a full cash galley on board for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The Freedom also has 40 comfortable semi-private bunks available on board.
