The charter is operated by Captain Joseph D’orsi who has been on the water daily for over 22 years and is a pro at catching inshore and nearshore fish.

The boat has a capacity for 6 guests who will enjoy fishing in comfort. It is roomy and comfortable, with an enclosed cabin and a top tower.

The boat has a toilet for your convenience, as well as an icebox for the catch. It is fully equipped with all the necessary navigational features and the USCG approved safety equipment. You will also have all the fishing gear available on board including the rods, reels, tackle, live bait, and even a first mate to assist you with reeling in your catch.

The crew will take you fishing in the inshore waters of the Boston Harbor for Striped Bass and Bluefish from May through September, and for Flounder in May and June. You will be taken to the best possible spots and given expert advice in order to make your trip a success. At the end of the trip, you can have your catch cleaned and filleted by the crew.

Join Boston Fish Tales and explore the prolific inshore waters of Massachusetts for a great time!
