Boston Harbor Striped Bass Fishing
Book Your Fishing Adventure
There are many different styles of fishing that can be used deep sea fishing for Striped Bass and Bluefish. The most successful are trolling, chuck & chumming and of course live & dead baits such as mackerel, pogies, eels, worms and crustaceans.
During the early season live baits work the best while drifting or being anchored over tidal rips, bumps and bottom structure, while chunking is the preferred method in late August. The most common fishing tackle used for striped bass and bluefish is light tackle gear and circle hooks are recommended for those who practice catch & release.
We fish for striped bass in the outer regions of Boston Harbor and the islands. Other areas are Boston Light, Georges Island, Graves Light, Gallops island inshore fishery and Lovells Island all in Massachusetts Bay.
Fishing for striped bass is characterized by calm waters in the inshore regions. The best time of the day to fish is during early morning, afternoon and the evening. We fish in shallow waters which have current in them. In summer the conditions could change. A regular half day trip could take 4 hours to fish while three-quarter day fishing trips could last as long as 6 hours.
