Storm Buster Charters - Boston

COVID-19 Update: To ensure the safety of everyone on board, Storm Buster Charters have instituted a set of measures including regular boat disinfection, social distancing, and contact tracing. The staff will also be screened prior to each shift and any person with symptoms consistent with COVID-19 will not be able to board the vessel. A full list of measures as well as a consent form will be provided upon booking.

Storm Buster Charters offers one of the most varied charter services you could imagine, for a huge range of species. Launching out of Boston, you can target delicious food fare like Flounder and Haddock, as well as hard-fighting gamefish like Stripers and Bluefish. You’re in for some real action here!

Captain Vinny Simeone welcomes you aboard his 25’ Dusky center console which is perfect for groups of up to 4 guests. He will take you to all his favorite fishing spots around Boston Harbor and beyond, getting you on trophy Stripers, doormat Flounder, and a range of other great fish.

Capt. Vinny’s boat is the perfect vessel for these waters. She balances offshore stability and inshore maneuverability with ease. The vessel is equipped with a livewell that you will load up with bait, downriggers for getting to those hard-to-reach bottom fish, and a full range of marine electronics to make sure you’re always fishing in the right place.

How you fish depends on your target species, but you’ll always have a few techniques to choose from. If you’re going after Stripers, you can troll live baits, throw topwater lures, or even fly fish. Fancy getting your hands on other fish like Haddock, Tuna, Bluefish, and Flounder? Use live or cut baits, or drop jigs and other effective lures. The choice is yours!

Whatever you do, you can rely on a skilled, local captain and a well-maintained boat. In short, you can rely on having a great time and catching some delicious fish!
