Thanks Joe and Randy for taking us on our first ocean fishing trip— we had a blast of fun and went home with plenty of striped bass for a big dinner (probably enough for a whole week)! The best part- Joe provides everything from rods to bait to storage and even cleaning services.. all we need to do is enjoy ourselves worry-free. Thanks again Jo and Randy— highly recommend!

Mike and his crew member Eric are top notch fisherman . Both were very easy to talk to and genuinely cared that we were having a great time..  If the bass weren’t hitting Mike would come up with a different approach and we would start catching them… Multiple times we had two and couple times we had three fish on at the same time..
I Highly recommend a fishing trip with
Boston Fish Tales..
