South Shore Mass. to Maine

Fishing for striped bass remains very good from about Boston north. Photo courtesy of Surfland Bait & Tackle.

If you are looking for a big striper, the Plum Island, Newburyport area would be a great bet. Schools of pogies and mackerel have lured some jumbo stripers along the ocean front and into the Merrimack River.

The offshore fishing really starts to heat up this time the year. The canyons are to starting give up great catches of bigeyes and yellowfin, and there have been more and more bluefin tuna sights. As the water warms shark fishing will also become more active. Haddock and ground fish will settle into the deeper cooler waters and continue to bite through the summer months. Striper fishing this season has been very consistent as the cooler inshore water temperatures in 2017 have kept them very bitey and slightly easier to fool. The next big push will be when giant schools of bluefish make their way up the coastline along the northern New England shorelines of the North Shore, New Hampshire and Maine.
