Legit Fish Sport Fishing

Legit Fish Sport Fishing is based in Massachusetts Bay in Downtown Scituate. The crew knows all the hot fishing spots in the area and thrive to provide an excellent service and outstanding catches to all their guests and friends.

Step aboard the “Legit Fish,” a spacious Albemarle 310 boat powered by twin 385 HP Cat engines. The vessel has a carrying capacity of six anglers and a maximum cruising speed of 25 knots. On board you’ll find Furuno navigational electronics and an Icom VHF radio. With an enclosed toilet, heat and air conditioning, a refrigerator, and a multimedia system, this boat is ideal for a comfortable day on the water.

Legit Fish Sport Fishing offers the widest variety of trips on the bay. You can target Bluefin Tuna and Striped Bass up to 25 miles offshore, or go even further off to take a lot of different species off your angling bucket list. As well as that, you can head out to Race Point for some of the best fishing opportunities in the area, or just dedicate your time on the water to chasing Cod or Striped Bass. Among the other targeted species are Pollock, Haddock, Porbeagle Shark, Thresher Shark, Bluefish, Blue Shark, and Mako Shark.

During your trip, you may be using a variety of fishing techniques, including heavy tackle, bottom fishing, drift fishing, jigging, trolling, spinning, kite fishing, and popping. In case you are not in the mood for fishing, you can choose a Harbor cruise, where you will get a chance to watch whales at the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary.

Your trip with Legit Fish Sport Fishing will include your fishing equipment, such as rods, reels, and tackle, as well as lures and live bait. Once caught, your fish can be cleaned and filleted for you by the crew. All you need to bring with you is sun lotion, drinks, and snacks.

If this sounds like the perfect setting for your next fishing adventure, book a trip that suits you the best, and start planning your trip today!
