Experience strong Bass fishing action with Karavi Charters and find out what makes the waters around Boston Harbor so special! With Captain Van Christie to take you where the best fish hide, good times on the water are all but guaranteed.

Your guide has well over 3 decades of experience fishing the local waters and he’s happy to put them to good use when taking his customers out. Boston Harbor and surrounding waters are the playground of massive Stripers, as well as aggressive Bluefish, so if you’re looking for intense battles, you’ve come to the right place.

Choose between half day and full day trips on offer and Capt. Van will take care of everything else. The excursion will start with fishing for live bait, and that’s an introduction to what comes next. The good news is that the time you spend live bait fishing won’t be deducted from the trip, so you’ll still have 4 or 6 hours to go after your prey.

You’ll do all this from the captain’s 30’ Robalo boat with powerful twin 300 HP Yamaha engines. The vessel is fast and seaworthy, with plenty of room for up to 6 people to fish at the same time. All onboard navigational electronics are state of the art, and there are 2 live bait wells and outriggers at your disposal.

With a private toilet, an air-conditioned cabin, and plenty of seating room, this beauty is as comfortable as they get. Capt. Van has top-of-the-line Penn and Shimano gear that you can use, so you don’t have to lug your own. If you’d like, you can get your catch cleaned and filleted after the trip.

Capt. Van loves having kids on board, so your whole family is welcome to join you on your fishing adventure. Stock up on drinks and food, everything else is included.

Go fishing with Karavi Charters and who knows, you just might hook your next personal record!

Lunker Striped Bass and Bluefish are in the cards, and not only can they be big, but they fight with everything they're got, so there won't be a dull moment out there.
