Get Tight Sport Fishing

529 Shirley St
Winthrop MA, United States

Want to try something new, different, and exciting? Head to Winthrop, Massachusetts and spend the day fishing with Get Tight Sport Fishing. Captain Brian Coombs has been fishing these waters since he was a kid and knows the hottest spots anywhere from Boston Harbor to Cape Cod.

He welcomes you aboard his 23’ center console manufactured by Tidewater Boats in 2014. Powered by a 300 HP Yamaha 4-stroke, it feels like a much bigger boat and can accommodate up to 4 anglers fishing comfortably. It’s very stable and dry thanks to its 8’11” beam and a big Carolina flair.

The boat is rigged with the latest Lowrance electronics, from dual navigational screens and VHF radios to LS2 fishfinder and 3G radar. It also has 19 rod holders, a live bait tank, and the most reliable safety gear.

Captain Brian is always exploring new fishing techniques and loves sharing his discoveries and knowledge with his customers. He’s a big fan of light tackle, jigging, and popping. Fly fishing is also an option if you let him know in advance.

Get Tight Sport Fishing specializes in inshore vertical jigging using ultra light tackle, an incredibly fun and productive technique. Jigging and popping for schools of Tuna is also one of their signature techniques. The other species you can expect to target include Black Seabass, Striped Bass, Mackerel, Tautog, Haddock, Pollock, False Albacore, and much more.

Captain Brian is also a gear fanatic so you’ll always find the newest and the coolest toys available on the boat. You’ll be supplied with the latest rods and reels, mostly by Shimano, lures, and live bait. Fishing licenses, drinks, lunch, and even catch cleaning are also courtesy of Get Tight Sport Fishing.

They will provide everything you’ll need to land your dream catch – you just have to shop up and reel ‘em in!
