Boston has a fish with your name on it, so let Sweet & Salty Charters help you catch it!

These waters are known for Striped Bass, Bluefish, and more – with any luck, you’ll have tight lines in no time. On the day of your trip, you’re likely to troll, jig, or live line bait using light tackle. Fish caught during the trip are yours to take home, so long as they’re within the legal limit. The crew can even clean your catch for you. Have a cooler ready in the car!

You’ll be fishing aboard a 32’ Albemarle Express that holds up to 6 passengers. It has everything else you need for a productive day on the water. There’s a toilet on board for your convenience. You’ll find rods, reels, and tackle waiting for you, as well as lures. Live bait can be caught when the trip calls for it.

A First Mate will be there to make sure everything is running smoothly. Mates work hard to make your trip count, so a 20% tip is customary. Your fishing license for the day is covered by the charter boat, so you can drive right over and come aboard without any hassle! Keep in mind that some fish may have harvest limits or closed seasons. Your captain will help you follow regulations while you fish.

Looking to get the whole family outdoors? Kids are absolutely welcome! Don’t leave home without snacks, drinks, sunscreen (non-spray), a hat, and sunglasses. Alcohol is allowed in moderation, but you should avoid hard liquor as well as glass bottles.

Hi, My name is Captain Jay, and I have been obsessed with fishing for over 20 years. I started fishing as a child, mainly down the Cape, but it quickly became more than a hobby. It became a passion. Most recently, I relocated to Boston, MA, and have been actively fishing in the Harbor. Getting out on the water and enjoying what the ocean offers is a part of my life. As a qualified Master Captain, I'll do my best to make your experience unforgettable for you and the family. Tight lines!
