Reel Pursuit Charters

Reel Pursuit Charters provide unforgettable Striper and Tuna charters in the waters of Boston, Massachusetts. You will spend a fun-filled day on the Boston waters in the company of a well-rounded crew led by Captain Paul Diggins. He and his mates will work hard to take you to best fishing spots, to help you cast for, hook, and reel in your catch!

You will go out on their 34 foot Craig Blackwell express boat, which was completely rebuilt by Blackwell BoatWorks in 2016. It now contains all the latest electronics, as well as all the safety equipment. The boat is powered by a two 315 HP Cummins engines, with a maximum cruising speed of 25 knots. This makes it fast and sound on the chop.

Reel Pursuit Charters will provide you with all the fishing gear and lures, with live baits supplied on the 6 and 8 hour long trips. You will go in search of the famous Striper or Striped Bass, as well as Porgy, Atlantic Mackerel, Flounder, and Bluefish. There is the added option of going on an amazing deep sea trip for Bluefin Tuna and Sharks.

You can bring your food and your favorite alcohol beverages which will be stored in the onboard fridge. You’ll also have an enclosed toilet and a multimedia system available.

The mate will clean the catch for you so make sure you tip him well as they rely on gratuity. Anglers of all ages and skill levels are welcome so bring your friends, relatives or fellow workers, spend some quality time with them, and catch your dinner!
