North Shore

Boston is in Suffolk County , the capital of Massachusetts and New England's largest city. It lies on Boston Bay, a part of Massachusetts Bay Boston Harbor

At The Flats.

The area to fish shows Governors Flats on Bostons Inner Harbor Chart. There are deep 20-foot-plus holes in the middle of the flats. Fish these drop offs on various stages on the tide.

Massachusetts Bay including Boston Harbor
A premier tourist attraction of the east coast. Contains large striped bass, cod and flounder are found here along with several other popular gamefish.

The economy and culture here has been tied to commercial fishing for almost 350 years. Sport fishing has learned to capitalize on the exceptional saltwater angling for bluefish, striped bass and flounder. The rich waters of the Atlantic offer may challenges to all levels of experience.

Home to the Kennedy compound and surrounding Hyannis Port. Offers some of the most revered fisheries in the world. Anglers fish for stripers, bluefish, bonito and false albacore.

Cape Cod Bay
Anglers will discover Atlantic cod, bluefish, bluefin tuna, striped bass and other species. Whale watching is very popular due to the presence of finback, minke, humpback, pilot and northern right whales.

Connecticut River

The Connecticut River is New England's largest river ecosystem and one of the nation's first American Heritage rivers. Its watershed encompasses over 11,000 square miles of wild, rural and urban lands in parts of four states -- Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Vermont. The Connecticut River carves a sinuous pathway south from Fourth Connecticut Lake at the Canadian border -- past forested mountains and small hamlets, through rich farmlands and large cities -- to empty 410 miles later into Long Island Sound.

Merrimack River

The Merrimack River (or Merrimac River, an earlier spelling that is sometimes still used) is a 110-mile-long river. It rises in central New Hampshire at the confluence of the Pemigewasset and Winnipesaukee rivers, flows southward into Massachusetts, and then flows northeast, near the Massachusetts-New Hampshire border, until it empties into the Atlantic Ocean at Newburyport. The total watershed of the river is approximately 5,000 square miles covering much of southern New Hampshire and a portion of northeastern Massachusetts. Stripers are probably spawning in this river as many fishermen have reported smaller non migrational bass.

Taunton River

Taunton River flows 44 miles from the confluence of the Town and Matfield Rivers into Rhode Island's Mount Hope Bay. The 562 square mile Taunton River Watershed, the second largest in Massachusetts and home to 38 cities and towns, is perhaps the most diverse and intact coastal rivernet ecosystem in southern New England.

They are abundant in the lower tidal portion of the Taunton. Today they appear to be occasional visitors to the upper river and the Nemasket. Their presence here has been confirmed by fish surveys by biologists for Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife

Massachusetts's saltwater sport striper fishing is concentrated in Massachusetts Bay, Cape Cod Bay, Nantucket Sound, Buzzards Bay, Vineyard Sound, and in the near-shore Atlantic Ocean, especially around Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket Island. The offshore commercial fisheries are intimately tied to George's Bank. The majority of Massachusetts commercial landings are made at New Bedford, Gloucester, Province town, Chatham and Boston. The juvenile stages of estuarine-dependent commercial species (winter flounder, herring, clams, bay scallop, conch, dogfish shark, spiny shark, and skate) depend on the fringing wetlands of Massachusetts Bay, Cape Cod Bay, Nantucket Sound, and Buzzards Bay for nursery areas. Bluefish and striped bass, two important recreational species, inhabit bays, sounds, and adjacent rivers, but depend on wetlands for their diet of small fish.

The northern limit is to be determined as the Holyoke dam, Holyoke, MA. The southern limit is to be determined as the inner light house in Old Saybrook, CT.
