As a new 2017 season approaches, I just wanted to look back on what a great 2016 season we had!
Right off the bat starting in May we enjoyed great cod and haddock fishing with lots of action being had on most days. The haddock fishing was some of the better we have seen in previous years fishing in relatively shallow water too which is always nice! A good handful of sharks showed up as well as they are always looking for a free meal as you reel your catch up off of the bottom, always makes things interesting. Many groups were taking there fresh catch right off of the boat and bringing it up to the outdoor bar at the Marina as they will cook it up however you like!
The Striped Bass fishing was productive with some big Stripers being landed. They always put up a great fight and give the angler a great battle. The Striped Bass started showing up in mid May and it continues to get better from there as the baitfish make there way up to the Gloucester coast. Striped Bass continue to be New England’s favorite and are always a great fish to target and can make for a fun day on the water as they are great table fare as well!
We had some great days out Bluefin Tuna Fishing as the ocean life off of Gloucester was excellent. Lots of baitfish which the tuna show up here for to feed and to thrive on. Always great showing up to a area where you see numerous whales and lots of bird activity you know the tuna are not far behind. A few different size class fish showed up as we caught tuna ranging from 100lbs up to 800lbs. You never know on a given day what size fish is going to bite the line. It is an amazing fishery we have here off of Gloucester, MA being part of catching one of these Bluefin tuna is something you will soon not forget. They truly are the gladiators of the ocean!
Enjoy a few nice pictures from our season and never hesitate to call or email with any questions at all you may have booking your trip with us. Thank you
The season is underway and off to a great start! We have been enjoying excellent bottom fishing for cod and haddock, some of the best haddock fishing I have seen. Non stop action on most trips we have even landed six halibut during the last few trips, from never catching one in the past to this is certainly a trend that I hope continues. The striped Bass have also arrived off the coast of Gloucester and hopefully lots more will continue to keep coming. Tuna season is now open with a few sightings being had offshore and lots of life and bait shaping up off of Gloucester we are hoping for another great season!
We enjoyed some great fishing on the Karen Lynn during the 2014 season. Starting off in May with excellent ground fishing for Cod and Haddock, many days with great action and bent rods allowing clients to take home some of the tastiest fish the ocean has to offer. On most Cod and Haddock trips we usually had a run in with a shark. Mostly blue sharks but an occasional Porbeagle or Mako shark would show up which can be an excellent fight as well as good table fare, always exciting seeing a big shark swim up behind the boat.
A great mix of Striped Bass started showing up in late May right behind the mackerel. Creating some fun and exciting action on most trips with great Striped Bass fishing continuing through June and July. With some Monster Striped Bass being landed, some times it takes patience waiting on that big one to come along but it is certainly worth it. Some big Stripers around this season as we landed a few coming close to the 50 pound mark. The coast of Gloucester offers some great Striped Bass Fishing with the chance of catching a true trophy Striped Bass!
The Blue fin Tuna offered up some great action with the season running into November. We usually had a good shot at them on most days, some true Giants showed up with our biggest being around 900 pounds. Lots of bait and whales around which is always a good thing. High hopes for new season as new groups and different size class tuna should be showing up. Gloucester offers up some of the best Blue Fin Tuna Fishing in the world, truly a memory of a lifetime seeing one of these fish pulled on deck!
Thanks to all who joined us aboard the Karen Lynn we always appreciate returning clients as well as all the new clients who joined us and we hope to see you again. Looking forward to seeing old friends and making new ones creating some great memories on the water! Please feel free to call or email with any questions at all regarding your trip on the Karen Lynn
Seems like the nice weather has come to stay! we have been enjoying some great trips on the Karen Lynn. Cod and Haddock Fishing still continues to be pretty good despite the water warming up. Striped Bass trips have been producing pretty good with some monster Stripers being caught one client landed a nice 48 inch close to 50lb fish the other day. Striped Bass fishing should continue to improve as more fish show up. The Tuna fishing is still a bit behind due to the cold winter we had, expecting that to continue to pick up as time goes on. Plenty of great dates left feel free to call me anytime with any questions at all regarding your trip on the Karen Lynn. Thanks
With Spring fast approaching, I just wanted to say thank you to all who joined us aboard the Karen Lynn in 2011! As we enjoyed a great 2011 season , with excellent all around fishing enjoyed by all. Once again the waters off of Gloucester produced world class fishing, with many trophy fish being landed by our charter groups.
We are expecting a early and great start to the 2012 season due to the fact we have had such a mild winter. The Karen Lynn will be back fishing in April excited to get out for some early season ground fishing. High hopes for the upcoming season as it is shaping up to be a good one!
Feel free to contact us anytime with any questions at all you may have in regards to booking your 2012 charter aboard the Karen Lynn.
Fishing has been great the past couple weeks! With the Striped Bass fishing continuing to produce big fish. Tuna fishing is just starting to heat up with more fish showing up as each day goes by. The Tuna/Cod combo trips are a great way to get out there and enjoy both types of fishing with a very short ride from one spot to the next. Finally the warm weather has settled in with the fish starting to as well, we are looking forward to more excellent fishing ! Feel free to call any time with questions you may have in regards to booking your fishing adventure aboard the Karen Lynn. Thanks
We have been enjoying some great Striper fishing these past couple weeks. This is such a great time to get out out there and enjoy some excellent Striped Bass fishing. Weather you are live lining or casting your favorite lures there is a great chance of a trophy Bass lurking below ! Here is 14 year old Jake with a nice 50″ Striper not to bad for his first Striper he has ever caught. Both good and bad as shortly after he had landed his monster, he turned to his dad and said ” dad I am not to sure I want to fish in the lake any more “. He now has the bug for the rest of his life I am sure, always a great thing to get a kid out there fishing ! Good luck to all.
The Karen Lynn enjoyed a great 2010 Season! Most of our days were spent on the water as we enjoyed the beautiful weather. Fishing was excellent as well! Our charter groups enjoyed world class Blue Fin Tuna Fishing, Ground Fishing, and Striped Bass Fishing.
This season a large variety of Blue Fin Tuna arrived close to home. We saw many schools of tuna in a variety of different sizes. On any given day you had a shot of landing a fish of a lifetime. There were very few days were we did not encounter excellent tuna action! On those quiet days where there was not much tuna activity we switched gears and headed for an afternoon of Ground Fishing. Once we arrived to our new location the rods were quickly bending with much fun and excitement had by all!
If the Karen Lynn was not out tuna fishing or ground fishing we were out looking for those monster striped bass. Whether we were using live bait or chumming there was great action to be had. Many days we landed multiple trophy Striped Bass. One of the largest stripers was caught on a charter weighing in at 48 lbs his first bass he had ever caught!
Karen Lynn had a great season for sure, and I have high hopes for 2011! The fish will return and they will be larger! We will be back fishing in April, enjoying those early season Haddock and looking forward to the opening of Cod season on April 15. A great way to shake off the cabin fever and enjoy the beautiful New England spring days!
Thanks to all of you who joined us aboard the Karen Lynn. I am looking forward to many great adventures in 2011!
