Boston Fishing Seasons
January is a great time for Winter Flounder in Boston. If you want to embrace the cold, the annual L Street Brownies swim offers great fun for a certain type of person. It sure is a spectacle, anyway.
Head offshore to target Pollock. Haddock, and Halibut or stay in the harbor to fish for Flounder. The Boston Science FIction FIlm Festival also takes place in February, if you want to escape the cold.
The Winter Flounder bite drops off in March, but there are much bigger flatfish offshore. Target Halibut on a full day trip and you'll also reel in some tasty Haddock and Pollock. Better empty the freezer!
The annual Patriot's Day Parade re-enacts the Paul Revere and William Dawes' famous midnight ride of 1775. This was where the American Revolution began and people are rightfully proud of it!
May kicks off the summer fishing season with spring Stripers swarming the shallows and big Bluefish in the bay. Fluke are also in season and make for some of the best eating around.
The offshore action finally gets going with the arrival of the first Bluefin Tuna. Stellwagen Bank is at its best in early summer, before the waters get too warm. So get out there and grab one.
July is a great time for Shark and Tuna fishing, while inshore the bays are full of trophy Stripers. Boston's Fourth of July celebrations are incredible, too. People take independence seriously here.
August is your last chance to catch Black Seabass before the season closes. Take a break from the fishing and you can enjoy Boston Carnival, a Caribbean sensation with fun for all the family.
Pretty much every major species is on fire in September. Sharks, Tuna, Stripers, Bluefish, Fluke, Tautog - the hardest part will be choosing what to target!
The water is full of boats in October, and not just for fishing charters! The annual Head of the Charles Regatta rounds off the summer season with a series of exciting rowing boat races.
Big game dreams have to be put on hold as the bluewater bite drops off. There's still great food fishing, though, with Winter Flounder, Pollock, Haddock, and Halibut available year-round.
Ring in the new year with Boston's First Night festival. Enjoy an evening of music, dance, food, fireworks, live comedy and art exhibitions. Boston's cultural side really shines through the winter darkness!
