We are a six person charter boat fishing daily from Onset, MA. In season we target Striped Bass, Bluefish, Blackfish (Tautog), Porgies (Scup), Fluke, Black Sea Bass, Squid and Tuna. We have been charter and commercial fishing these waters for the past 15 years and we ‘stay on the fish’ by sailing daily and by utilizing our network of other dedicated fishermen. Our fishing reports are up to the minute.
Spring Fishing starts on or about April 13th. Scup (porgy) season opens earlier than ever this year and there is absolutely no better place to be than right here to catch them. They are just a very short boat ride from the Pier, along with Tautog. A trip through the canal and you can get Haddock, Cods tastier cousin. We will be fishing by next weekend and will be sailing daily through the summer. New for us this summer will be a combination Lobster / Fishing trip. We will go through the canal from Onset to Cape Cod Bay and pull up a few of our lobster traps and then switch over and catch a few stripers either in Cape Cad Bay or back on the Onset end if the canal. We will start these trips after June 20th (+/-) when the lobsters and stripers arrive. The people we took on this trip last year absolutely loved it. Give me a call or stop by the pier. Here are a few pictures from last year.
Black Sea Bass season extended!
The Mass Division of Marine Fisheries announced yesterday that the season for Black Sea Bass will be extended until October 9th. This is great news for us , since September is a beautiful month for Black sea Bass fishing. The fish move back a little closer to us and can be pretty aggressive . I haven’t booked any trips yet , so the calendar is wide open. Give us a call. Here are a couple of pictures from this week.
The fishing has been good for this time of year, but the weather has been slowing us down . We have lost more trips to the weather in August than we did in june and July together. We will be out there every fishable day Through October. Remember that the bag limit for Tautog (Blackfish) goes up to five on the 15th of October. Here are some pictures from the last 2 weeks.
I apologize to my two fishermen for putting your picture sideways. I tried to fix it, but no luck .
2020 Fishing Calendar
Black Sea Bass
Onset is in a unique location in that it is convenient to Buzzards Bay, Vineyard Sound, and Cape Cod Bay as well as the Elizabeth Islands. With a comfortable cruising speed of 15 knots all these legendary fishing areas are available. Parking is just steps from the dock and the locals are famously friendly. You don’t have to cross the bridge to the cape and that can save you hours in traffic on summer weekends. We are about 4 hours from NYC. You save at least 45 minutes off the trip to Hyannis, more if there is traffic.
Tackle, bait , rods and reels are all supplied or you are welcome to bring your own. I am a Coast Guard Licensed Captain. The boat is supplied with all required safety equipment and is fully insured. If you have more than 6 people we can arrange a second boat with other experienced Captains or put you in touch with larger boats. Good dates, including weekends are available so reserve now for a great day of fishing. Thanks for reading.
