There are plenty of fishing charter boats claiming to know how to run a fishing charter out of Portland but very few have experience in ocean fishing and when you see what boats they operate in you would be crazy going aboard some of these charter boats, some of these charter boats are not qualified with the right qualifications to be legally running fishing charters out of Portland and there vessels are not up to the national survey standards they should be, so if you look at booking a Portland blue fin tuna fishing charter look no further than red hot fishing charters.

Both our boats are kept in a very clean tidy manor and are new boats with all state of the art electronics.
