We use various live and fresh baits on light tackle to pursue and catch trophy game fish. With our proven methods, anglers of all skill levels will enjoy the exciting challenges that our fisheries have to offer. Every angler gets their own outfit. We begin in May in the upper bay for extreme Striper action, then as the waters warm we move with the fish. By June we are at Block Island or Cuttyhunk and Martha’s Vineyard points east, baiting and battling trophy fish on the lightest tackle possible. When our offshore fishing is within our range, we will take full day trips for Tuna and Shark.
