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 continued 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 an 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
