Boston Harbor - Saltwater Fishing Report
The fishing in Boston Harbor has been great over the past few weeks. Weekdays have been best to avoid the crowds, but there are plenty of fish to be caught. Yesterday (Sunday) at 5:00 am it was just me and one other boat on the fish, but at 6:00, there were 40 boats there... Glad to see so many people enjoying the weather and spectacular fishing, but if you want to avoid crowds, try a weekday. I have been on the water almost every day for the past few weeks and have had some great charters. Most of my trips have been early morning and that has produced good numbers and sizable fish. Schools of stripers have been outside the inner harbor for a while now and are starting to make their way inside. Depending on the tide, we have also had great success finding rips and fish have been stacked up in many of them. My clients have had success with both fly and spinning rods, with the largest fish of the week being caught on fly. This past week also produced some great topwater action on both fly and spin. Yesterday, a crease fly produced mammoth strikes from some big fish. On spinning gear, a pencil popper or the new badonkadonk worked wonders.
I am looking forward to another great week of fishing. Get out there and FISH!!
Boston Harbor Fishing Forecast:
Fishing should remain terrific for the next few weeks. Bluefish should make their way into the harbor sometime this month.
Striped Bass, Bluefish
