Fishing on Cape Ann

Striped Bass
#########Striped bass can grow up to 5 feet long and weight in at 50lbs. The record being 73 lbs. Many fish that we catch are over 3` long but most are in the 24" to 36" range or 10 to 25 lbs. Their ability to dive into the rocky out crops make even the craftiest angler challenged on our light Penn saltwater tackle. The meat is white, tender and very tasty  making them a valuable target for visitors and locals alike.

#########Flounders are year round habitats, found on the sandy and muddy bottom areas throughout the Cape Ann area. They are bottom feeders that are harvested in waters 30`to 100` deep. Their round flat bodies and resistance to come to the surface made for a tough struggle to bring to the net. Flounder is one of the most sought after fish of all the N.E. seafood. Its meat is pure white, enabling it to be seasoned and cooked in a variety of ways.

#########Bluefish are also a warmer water fish. The plentiful bait fish off the shores of Gloucester Massachusetts, make for good feeding and great fishing. Bluefish are fierce feeding machines and their sharp teeth make a school of baitfish boil to escape their grasps. The bluefish travel in large schools. After locating these schools the action of blue fishing in a feeding frenzy is a sight and an experience to behold and treasure!!!
