I can highly recommend the Central New Hampshire Guide Service; Jeff Foote is a perfect guide. He combines expertise, experience, and a through knowledge of the area with wit, good humor, and grace under pressure.

Some of my friends told me that hiring a licensed guide was a waste of time and money to try and fill my New Hampshire Moose tag in zone A2. I am a lifelong hunter with over a dozen Whitetail over 200 pounds in New Hampshire. The week that I spent hunting with Central New Hampshire Guides and my son Brian was one of the most enjoyable hunts I've ever had in my life, including elk hunting in the Rockies. Having an extensive knowledge of the area myself I am always amazed at the places you might never see if someone didn't take you there. Last year's Moose season proved difficult for most hunters to even see an animal. In the 1st 3 days we saw 17 animals with 5 opportunities to harvest within 20 yards. Our total for the week was 31 animals with over 75% in shooting range. We were told by many hunters at LL Cote in Errol New Hampshire that they had not seen one animal by day 5. I can strongly recommend the investment with Central New Hampshire Guides, to anyone looking to fulfill their dreams on their hunt of a lifetime.

Awesome fishing trip all around!! Captain Jeff tailored our trip to include whatever we wanted. Some haddock fishing to start and some lobstering on the way back made for a great day. He and the mate chatted with us the whole time and offered tips and tricks to make our trip successful. Very friendly and informative. We're thinking about making this an annual trip. Highly recommended!

Captain Jeffery D Foote is the best if you want to target fish. His knowledge of locating fish and presentation of the bait shows his expertise

Took 5 fathers out on fathers day and had a just awesome day on the water bottom fishing. Sea was like glass until I started whistling Dixie. Capt Jeff Foote found the haddock and we slayed them all day. Cant wait to go again. Maybe try some stripper fishing for the next trip.

I have been on a few charters with Central New Hampshire Guides and Captain Jeff has always provided our group with a great experience. He take's pride in the vessel's and gear and you always feel like they want you to be successful at catching whatever you're after on the trip. Captain Jeff not only takes you fishing but you come away from your trip having actually learned more about how to catch fish and more knowledgeable about the fish themselves. While there is never any guarantees of catching fish on any fishing trip when you go out with Captain Jeff and Central New Hampshire Guides you will know they will do what it takes to make the trip a success.

Spent a great day with Jeff on Little Sister, fun and professional guide. Got us on the fish immediately, we were catching so many large haddock we had to measure the small legal ones as our eyes started thinking they were under!

We booked a trip with Central New Hampshire Guides not knowing what to expect we arrived at the Marina in Hampton New Hampshire to begin our day on the water. As we headed offshore targeting haddock and codfish we stopped to video a feeding right whale. We saw numerous other marine mammal species as are very comfortable ride to the fishing grounds . including humpback whales, Finn back whales, minke whales, dolphins, and porpoises. Taking time to view these amazing creatures is another added bonus to fishing on a private charter. 1st stop did not produce an abundant number of fish everyone caught some smaller fish 50% of them of legal length to keep. We continued offshore to Jeffreys Ledge starting at the curl and working our way north every stop produced healthy market size codfish and gorgeous haddock with a few Pollock mixed in. Having finished numerous days on the large head boats having three-foot of rail completely to yourself surrounded only by 5 of my closest friends made for day none of us will soon forget. Capt Foote estimated we had 125 pounds of fillet , cleaning the fish for us and a giant blue shark appeared behind the boat, having the shark rod in the standby position hooking one of the fish racks he took the bait. After a fantastic 38 min. fight and some very good photos alongside the boat we release the shark. As we headed in cooler filled with fillet, one of the captain's friends called and said that the stripers were biting well we stopped in the Merrimack River to finish the day with most everyone catching their limit of stripers as well. Days like this don't happen very often but I can only imagine they would never happen if it wasn't for the 30 years of experience and continued commitment to excellence and passion that our new favorite charter boat the Little Sister and her captain provided.

The little sister, but 2520 Parker powered by at 225 Honda 4 stroke, with 100 ft.² of cockpit was an incredibly comfortable fishing platform. Catching the live well full of mackerel was fantastic. We drifted the Merrimack River, in Salisbury Massachusetts, we had repeated doubles and triples of 30 inch or better striped bass. The tackle provided by Central New Hampshire Guides. Was a perfect match for the fish with medium action of 7 foot ugly sticks and Okuma bait runner reels. If you've never fished for these fish before you owe it to yourself to try pick a nice summer day get some friends and go have the time of your life. I can strongly recommend Capt. Jeff Foote who made the impossibly hard work look easy, and kept us smiling throughout the entire day.
