Striped Bass and Flounder fishing heats up

More Striped Bass have moved into Duxbury Bay with a little more size to them. mid 30 to low 40in fish were caught yesterday and yesterday evening.

Flounder fishing has been steady around the higher tides. Most of the fish we have been getting are keeper size and up to 20inches.

Attached is a picture from a trip over the weekend.

Striped Bass have moved in

The Striped Bass have moved into Duxbury and Kingston waters. We have been getting plenty of fish in the high 20inch range and been able to find a few in the low 30s on most trips. The water temp is still just a little cold but marked a lot of fish over the weekend which is a good sign and with the warm temps coming the bigger fish should be in here any day. Had a report today that a couple were caught in the 40in range.
Here are a couple pictures from one of the trips over the weekend.

Bluefin Tuna season Starts June 1st

The 2015 Bluefin Tuna season will start on the first of June. Some years we have had the Tuna show up in late May, and some years they are here the first week of June. Last year, they were around for opening day and we are hoping for the same this year. We are now taking bookings for the 2015 season. We are also offering a three trip Tuna package in which you can fish the Spring, Summer, and Fall and save money. Gives you the best chance to catch the fish of a lifetime.

A few pictures from last season.

Medium Size Tuna are still around.

The Bluefin Tuna have showed up in great numbers. For the last couple years we have not seen the smaller fish which are great for charters. The last two weeks or so have been really good for the high 60 to low 70 inch fish. We have been hooking multiple fish per trip mostly on stand-up gear. Leaving from Duxbury Harbor, its a short ride out to the fishing grounds this time of year on the High Hook.

Blues Showed up in big numbers

The Bluefish showed up in great numbers over in Providence town this week. Great for top water gear. Schools crashing the surface from The rip all the way to Wood End.
The schools of Striped Bass were found mixed in with the bluefish as well. Large schools of Bass moved though the edges on Monday and were being caught using live eels or on vertical jigs.

Striped Bass Fishing Couple Weeks Away

The weather is starting to get warmer and so is the water. That can only mean that fishing is right around the corner. These warm days when the wind blows from the South can only help bring the fish up inside the canal. No word yet of fish being caught in Southern Ma, but a few have been taken down in Rhode Island waters. One fish was taken in the Cape Cod Canal last week, but was most likely a holdover. The Bass arrive in our waters very hungry, and don’t hesitate when we throw them a live mackerel. The Spring bite on a light action rods is one of the best things about May.

Check Out New Updated Photo Gallery

Check out the Updated High Hook Charters photo gallery of Bluefin Tuna, Striped Bass, and days out on the water. Fishing is right around the corner. The Striped Bass should be here in the first week of May. Most years we see them at the end of April, but with the cold Winter up here in the North East this year, I am expecting them a week or so late. The wind has been blowing hard out of the South for a few days which is good, moving the warmer water North.
