As we head into the 2019 spring and summer vacation season here in Maine, I want post some changes to Trina Lyn Fishing Charters.
After more than 25 years as a full time charter boat owner and captain, I ( Captain Todd ) have decided to scale things back a little bit for 2019. When I first started Trina Lyn Fishing Charters back in May of 1994, the plan was to just earn a little extra money to help pay for my boat and fuel. Within a few years of being the only near coastal charter boat in the area, the business turned into an 80+ hour per week job. I would run charters 7 days per week and 13-15 hrs daily.
Fast forward to the more recent years and I have taken weekends off but still run 12-13 hour days with customers onboard Monday - Friday. Weekends off has allowed me to spend some time with my family during Maines short summer, as well as avoid the recreational weekend warrior fishing fleet.
In the past several years my marine related “winter business” has become increasingly busier and stretched well into the Spring and beyond. I have been forced to turn away customers each spring as I prepare for and fish the summer charter season.
Therefore, for 2019 I have decided to continue to own and operate Trina Lyn Fishing Charters, however the season for the Trina Lyn will start later then we typically do. Also, I will most likely operate just a few days each week.
For both new and long-term customers, please continue to send emails with your fishing dates, and if I am unable to reserve a time slot for you, I can direct you to another quality and experienced local Charter Captain, who will offer you a great time as well as a good value for your dollar.
Thank you very much for your continued business.
Captain Todd Stewart
