Bigger Striped Bass Move In

Within the last couple days we have seen a lost of Striped Bass in the 28-34 inch range show up in Duxbury, Plymouth, and Kingston bays. Hungry fish with lots of strikes. We have been getting them on both live Bait and artificial plugs as well.
Also, the smaller Stripers 20 inches and up have been working the surface on the early mornings and late evenings all around the bay. Perfect fish for light tackle.

Haddock Fishing

The Spring Haddock bite on Stellwagen Bank is a lot of fun and a great way to put some fillets in your freezer. During the Spring, the Haddock come in close on top of Stellwagen Bank to eat sand eels and crabs, and the fishing is awesome. The shallow water on the bank allows us to use light gear and small jigs to target the haddock.
A quick 15 mile run to the western edge of Stellwagen puts us on the fishing grounds. This seasons limit is 12 fish per angler. The fish show up in April and the fishing is good all through May.

Get out there and fill up your freezer!! To book a trip please visit the website here

Bluefin Tuna Fishing 2018

Bluefin Tuna show up in the Cape Cod waters early June and feed here all summer long .The sharp drop-off along the Southwest corner of Stellwagen Bank creates upwellings which attract baitfish such as sandeels, mackerel, and herring which attract Bluefin Tuna. A quick 45 minute boat ride puts us on the fishing grounds.   Dates are filling up for the 2018 fishing season so book soon . www.FishHighHook.com

Striped Bass Fishing The Bays

 Striped Bass show up in Duxbury, Plymouth, and Kingston Bay waters around mid-May. We run 4 hour trips which gives you plenty of fishing time to fill up the cooler.  The trip consists of shooting out of the bay to catch live mackerel in the morning and then bring them back inside to target the channels and rips on the moving tides. When the fish show up in Cape Cod waters in the Spring they are hungry and aggressive so you see a lot of the strikes on the surface. No matter your skill level, its fun for all catching the Stripers on light spinning gear. Dates are filling up so book soon to get the day you would like.
