Fishing Frenzy Charters

Fishing Frenzy Charters chase inshore and offshore fish in one of the most productive and well-known fishing grounds off the northern East Coast. Boston, Massachusetts allows Captain Scott Campbell and his crew to pull fish to the side of the boat in numbers you can only dream about. They can’t help but catch lots of big fish of all varieties!

Striped Bass and Bluefish populating this area are among the biggest found between Gloucester and Cape Cod, which is why almost every specimen you’ll pull out will be a Trophy. And if you have heard of Boston being referred to as the “Flounder Capital of the World”, you will know that Flounder inhabit the Boston waters in healthy numbers and taste delicious.

Alternatively, Bluefin Tuna and Sharks are well worth traveling further offshore for. The deep blue waters are the ideal feeding grounds for massive Bluefin Tunas that just love munching on Sand Eels, Herring, or Mackerel.

Captain Scott’s boat, Fishing Frenzy is a 29’ Dyer pilothouse powered by a 315 HP Yanmar engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 20 knots. This speed means you get to the fishing grounds quickly and are fishing aboard a stable vessel that uses GPS, fishfinder, and outriggers in locating and catching the finest fishing specimens. The onboard toilet and bed are there for your convenience and that of your family.

Fishing Frenzy Charters carry the finest spinning reels, as well as rods, tackle, lures needed to catch fish. Fishing licenses are included in the price of the trip, and so is the catch cleaning and filleting. Just make sure you bring a big cooler for the fish you want to take home and tip the mates well for all their hard work.

And if you need any more proof of how good they are, just take a look at their photos. They show genuinely happy people who have caught massive fish and are ecstatic about it! Their grins will tell you everything you need to know about fishing with Captain Scott Campbell and Fishing Frenzy Charters!
