EXPERIENCE THE TRIP OF A LIFETIME WITH GO GET 'EM SPORTFISHING
Fishing for Striped Bass in Cape Cod Bay is a dream trip for new as well as experienced anglers. Striped Bass can grow up to 70+ pounds and are exhilarating to catch at any size. We generally begin targeting Striped Bass in late spring and early summer which is the prime fishing time in our region. Fishing for Striped Bass can be done using a multitude of tackle and strategies. Trolling, casting topwater plugs, live bait fishing with mackerel, herring, and pogies, and chumming inshore with chunk bait are all methods we use to catch this amazing species.
The elusive Bluefin Tuna is considered by many anglers to be the pinnacle trophy species throughout the world. Bluefin in our region can range from 100 to 1000 pounds and reach up to 10 feet in length. We typically begin targeting Bluefin in early June and catch them as late in the year as December. The prime time to catch Bluefin starts during mid summer and ends in the late fall months using both live bait and trolling techniques.
The Massachusetts Bay is home to a multitude of shark species. The main species we target during our trips include Blue Sharks, Mako Sharks, Porbeagle Sharks, and Thresher Sharks. We typically target these species by creating a chum slick and and deploying both live or dead bait. Mako, Porbeagle, and Thresher sharks all make fantastic table fare. Go Get 'Em Sportfishing has held multiple shark records in the state of Massachusetts throughout the years.
Whale watching is a fantastic way to get your family out on the water and make some memories of a lifetime. The Massachusetts Bay is home to whale species such as the Humpback Whale, Right Whale, Finback Whale, Minke Whale and Pilot Whales. Dolphins and Porpoises are also regularly seen on our trips.
Targeting groundfish species is a great way to fill the freezer with delicious white meat. On ground fishing trips we target Haddock, Pollock, Redfish, Cod (When the fishery is open), Hake, and Cusk. We use a mix of jigs and baited rigs.
Kids trips are a great way to get children into fishing. Kids trips usually last three hours and consist of teaching youngsters boating safety, how to catch bait, and targeting species local to Scituate such as Striped Bass and Bluefish. We then give kids the option to learn how to catch lobsters and crabs using lobster traps. We recommend this trip for children aged 12 or younger that have no fishing or boating experience.
