2012 Fishing Season Fast Upon Us Karen Lynn Charters !

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.

Thank You

Karen Lynn Charters Great Striped Bass and Cod Fishing Continues !

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 !

Karen Lynn Charters Great Striped Bass Fishing !

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.

1/7/2011 Karen Lynn Charters Great 2010 Season !

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…(continue reading)

10/1/2010 Karen Lynn Charters Fishing Report Gloucester,MA !

We have been enjoying great fishing and beautiful weather this past month. With great fishing action all the way around ! People have been enjoying some great tuna/cod combo trips as it is a great way to mix things up. If the tuna fishing is slow or you have gotten your tuna fix for the day the bottom fishing grounds are not to far away. Put the tunes on and drop the lines as everyone will get a chance to bend the rod and take home some great table fare as well. Plenty of great fishing left to be had as it is shaping up for some great fall tuna fishing, with the mackerel moving back in we are hoping to see some great action. You have to love those beautiful crisp fall days when the fishing action can be non stop at times ! We have great dates still available feel free to call or e mail us with any questions you may have booking your trip with Karen Lynn Charters. Good Luck to all !

7/28/2010 Karen Lynn Charters Fishing Report Great Striped Bass,Tuna and Cod Fishing !

karen lynn charters,striped bass,fishing,gloucester,massachusettsstriped bass fishing Massachusetts Karen Lynn Charterscod and haddock fishing Gloucester, MA Karen Lynn ChartersWe have been enjoying some great fishing the past week. As the ocean is exploding with life both inshore and offshore, as there has not been a trip yet including Striped Bass where we have not seen the Tuna chasing the small baits all over the place.

Due to the exciting appearance of the spike mackerel, which have not been around in over five years which have now shown up in large numbers and seem to be all over. Beautiful 3 to 5 inch spike macks which are as fast as can be, explaining the amazing tuna feeds and aerial displays we…(continue reading)

Karen Lynn Charters Great Striped Bass Fishing Gloucester,MA !

Inshore Bass fishing has been great as we have had an exciting last couple of weeks. As the small bait and the mackerel continue to stick around more bass seem to be showing up. With some true trophy class Stripers mixed in. On one of our charters last week we had a gentlemen who had never caught a fish before never, land a beautiful 47″ 45+lb monster not bad for a first fish ! We joked as we told him he should just hang it up now. A few Bluefish have moved in not to many and I hope it stays that way, would be nice to see the bait stick around a bit. Plenty of life inshore get out there and enjoy it. Good luck to all !

Karen Lynn Charters Bluefin Tuna Fishing Report Gloucester,MA !

Another great day on the water as we were back at again yesterday. Once again we would be heading out in the pea soup fog, could not even see the bridge from the slip felt like we were trapped in a bubble the last couple of days. It finally lifted in the afternoon and the sun popped no doubt a mood changer for sure. Marking a decent amount of fish bouncing off the bottom feeding in the tightly packed groups of sand eels, which have not moved off the bottom much at all. Which would explain the lack of whales and birds on the bank once the temp comes up a little they should become more active.

We were quickly on a fish a half hour into fishing which is always a nice thing. Very hard fighting fish once again taking some good initial runs which create that beautiful noise we all live to hear. The fish we landed and released were in the 70 inch to 71 inch class a little smaller than the previous day….(continue reading)
