Karen Lynn Charters 2015 Season Review Bluefin Tuna, Striped Bass, Cod and Haddock Fishing

Excellent 2015 season aboard the Karen Lynn! Great all around fishing enjoyed by many new and returning clients.

We started out bottom fishing for Cod and Haddock on May 1, which always creates a fun atmosphere. The fishing was pretty consistent all through the summer. Most trips we are usually anchored up and dropping down rigs baited with clams. You never know what you be reeling up from the deep which keeps things interesting. Almost always we would run into a few Pollock and Cusk to go along with the Cod and Haddock. We also had many trips with Shark encounters. As your reeling up your fish from the bottom they tend to grab it right off the hook or you getting back just the head. Always creates excitement as we keep our shark rod ready to go. We will set someone up in the stand up fighting gear and toss out a bait. More often than not the shark is still hanging around and will take the bait. Makes for a great battle and a unique experience bringing a large Shark up next to the boat!
The Striped Bass showed up pretty good starting in late May early June off of the Gloucester shoreline. They tend to produce fun and exciting action on lighter tackle as they always put up a good fight. They can be very aggressive chasing the live bait and coming right out of the water after it. I always enjoy watching clients battle there first Striped Bass as they are usually hooked on fishing shortly after! Striped Bass fishing can be a great way to spend the day out on the water.
The World Class Bluefin Tuna fishery we have off of Gloucester, MA proved to be a fairly productive season. On most days we had a good shot at hooking into a tuna, some slower days here and there of course but overall it was good. Lots of bait in most of the areas we fish which is always a good sign and will keep the tuna hanging around and aggressive to feed. A few different size class tuna were in the mix as we caught fish from a 100lbs up to 900lbs. On one trip we hooked into two 600lb class fish at the same time we got lucky and landed them both which was quite the memory for the lucky charter on board! Fishing for Bluefin Tuna out of Gloucester, MA can be a unique experience in itself hooking and landing one will truly create the memory of a lifetime!
Please feel free to call or email anytime with any questions at all in regards to booking your trip with Karen Lynn Charters. Thank You

Bluefin Tuna, Striped Bass, Cod Fishing Season Review Karen Lynn Charters

We enjoyed some great fishing on the Karen Lynn during the 2013 season. Starting off in April with excellent ground fishing for Cod and Haddock, many days with great action and bent rods allowing clients to take home plenty of fresh fish, some of the best New England has to offer. Some days you had to bounce around a bit but we always seemed to find some good action, on most Cod and Haddock trips we usually had a run in with a shark or two as there seemed to be a lot of them around. 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. The coast of Gloucester offers some great Striped Bass Fishing with the chance of catching a true trophy Striped Bass!

The Blue fin Tuna showed up off of Gloucester in June which gave us a chance at catching a few early season Tuna. As the Season went on the tuna started to settle into certain areas but not for long as the bait fish were always on the move. So staying on top of that and making good decisions on any given day would give us our shot at hooking up. With more and more baitfish showing up every year it’s always exciting to see what size and class of fish show up! Looking forward to the new season as new groups and different size class tuna should be showing up off of Gloucester.

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. High hopes for a great new season, always look forward to seeing old friends and making new ones creating some great memories on the water!

Karen Lynn Charters Enjoying Excellent Fishing !

We have had some great trips these last couple weeks! With groundfishing slowing down we have been enjoying some great Striped Bass fishing. Cant beat it, a very short ride to the fishing grounds with many of the trophy size Stripers starting to move in. Its a great time of year to get out there and enjoy some Striped Bass fishing. With plenty of bait in the area and new bunches of fish showing up everyday. The Stripers are very aggresive this time of year as they move into the area and find the feed. You never know when that fish of a lifetime will come along ! Not to mention the Blue fin tuna are moving into the area as well with more and more showing up each day. There are a large number of whales and bait in the areas the tuna will congregate too. It won’t be long until the tuna bite really starts to heat up ! With many great dates still available feel free to give me a call anytime in regards to booking your 2012 trip with Karen Lynn Charters. Thanks

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 have been witnessing.

The tuna are up and down quick as the spike mackerel will not ball up as easily and create such an easy target as the small herring will. Both the small herring and the spike mackerel are around which at times paying attention you can tell which type of feed the tuna are on by how aggressive they are feeding. One clear sign is after a good feed drive over the spot and if they are on the herring you will clearly see a large scale shower, in turn helping you dial in your choice lures for the day and the area you are working.
I’m amazed at how close to shore they have been having them blow up in 35 feet of water, at times seeming oblivious to there location being so focused on chasing the spike mackerel very exciting to see.

We have been running some great Tuna/Cod combo trips as well as Tuna/Striped Bass combo trips which make for a great day on the water. I hope everyone is getting out there and enjoying truly world class fishing we have here right in our backyard. As it seems this year you never know what you will come across from a Great White to a Killer Whale. Good Luck to all !
