We are starting to get that feeling that fishing season is almost here after having record setting temperatures in Boston last week and nearing the end of February. Anyone from the New England area understands those records mean nothing and we could still have two feet of snow dumped on us any day between now and early April. This does not mean we can’t start to think about fishing or call to inquire about a trip to book the best dates.
In the meantime we are busy tying rigs, cleaning and greasing fishing reels, replacing any broken rod tips and making a list to get the RELENTLESS back in the water. This season will be starting off fishing for Haddock with the first Open Boat, Shared Charter on Saturday April 15th and 16th. The haddock are in relatively shallow water that time of year usually less than 120’ on Stellwagen Bank and provide fast action at times along with the opportunity to go home with some excellent eating fish. We will be hitting the haddock hard during April and May and anytime throughout rest of the year when the season is open using small jigs and fresh sea clams as bait.
In late May the striped bass will be here in good numbers where anglers can catch mackerel for live bait and drop them down to the bass waiting for a the run off before setting the hook and watching the rod double over. These are really fun trips especially when we can also pick them up vertical jigging and also using top water lures where seeing a crashing striped bass can get the heart pumping.
Later in the season we will be fishing for everything from Black Sea Bass to Tuna and offer open boats and private trips for all types of fishing. Our tackle is all top of the line and we have many repeat customers who have fished with us for nearly 15 years. This season we will also be looking at fishing South of Martha’s Vineyard for Mahi Mahi, school tuna and sharks. We expect the 2017 season to be an excellent one based on what we saw last season.
Departing Green Harbor in Marshfield provides many opportunities to fish for many different species within an hour of the dock. If you are interested in going on a private or shared charter this season, please contact Captain Dave at firstname.lastname@example.org
