North Shore Anglers

Captain Frank Taormina and North Shore Anglers invite you to an exciting fishing adventure out of Gloucester, MA. Frank has been fishing the local waters for more than two decades now and is passionate about the service he provides. With trips suitable for both experienced anglers as well as newcomers, there’s no reason to miss out on what could easily be a trip of a lifetime.

Frank’s boat is a custom-built 22’ Biddison center console that’s powered by a 200 HP Yamaha engine. It contains all the necessary navigation equipment by Furuno, as well as amenities such as a portable toilet. There’s enough room on the boat for four anglers, so feel free to bring some friends who like to fish with you.

Gloucester waters make for great fishing both inshore and offshore. Big Striped Bass, Flounder, and others can be found inshore.

Captain Frank will provide you with all the gear you’ll need. This includes Shimano 6500 Baitrunner reels and 7ft boat rods for Bass, and Penn International gear. Bait and fishing licenses are also included, so all that’s left for you to do is bring a pair of polarized sunglasses and some sunscreen. Feel free to bring drinks or snacks too if you’re so inclined, and get ready for a fun time.

Born and raised in Gloucester, MA, I have been fishing its waters for 20 years. My passion and love for fishing started at a very young age, and I pride myself on providing you with the very best trip possible. My preferred style for Striped Bass is jigging for live bait and trolling or pitching the bait in structure where fish might hang out.
