Epic Shark Day

August always surprises me with great fishing offshore, but this shark trip was special.  Some of my best friends chartered the boat for an all day shark trip.  The weather was great with a  south wind.  We steamed east of Boston for an hour and found some nice warm water with some great structure.  We setup our chum slick and hook baits in the deep water drifting into the shallows.  It took about an hour before the first shark showed up, the bait got hit hard and we were tight to our first blue shark of the day.  Elisabeth took full charge of the shark making a clean release after a few photos.  It took 2 minutes to get another bite, and the fight was on for Sean with a very solid blue shark that fought hard.  I thought we were into the blue sharks thick, but the bite died off after the second fish.  We all shared stories and ate lunch and then it happened….The bait that was 6 feet from the boat had a quick bite, then we all looked in the water and the rod starting to scream.  We all jumped into action and I knew this was not a blue shark.  Will jumped into the harness and had all he could handle just holding the rod while something was pulling drag on the 50 wide.  We immediately started the boat and began moving the fish to the stern of the boat.  After a long 20 minute battle Kellie ended the fight with a quick 15 minute battle.  We then had the leader in our hand and saw the massive tail of a Thresher shark.  The excitement quickly turned into a deep focus on how we would secure the fish safely.  After a tough boat side battle we were able to tail rope the fish and bring it on the deck of the boat.  What a day out East.  310 pound Thresher Shark!  It now makes sense why the blue shark bite shut off like a light switch, we had a big Thresher shark in out bait slick.  The fishing is excellent offshore, now is the time to book a trip of a lifetime.

After a long winter, we finally got out on our first shark trip last week.  What a day!  Little to no wind, sunny, and 80 degrees.  The perfect day to be out on the water.  We setup just east of the bank and within 10 minutes we had our first 10′ blue shark on the line.  We were into sharks the entire day, having as much as 4 big sharks within 10 feet of the boat.  The water temperature is in the upper 60’s making the sharks very aggressive.  The sharking should be great through September, call Captain Scott to book a trip, dates are filling up quickly.

Mid Season Report

The fishing lately has been very good with tons of bait in and around Boston.  The water temperature has risen to 70 degrees which has made the bass scatter and settle into cool areas with structure.  With the warmer water temp, we were greeted with huge bluefish that have been eating everything in site.  For more up to date reports please like my facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/bostonfishingfrenzy



Excited for the 2015 Fishing Season to start…

With the winter holding a strong grip on us in the Northeast we are getting all the equipment in top working order for a great summer.   Last year brought a very inconsistent season.  We had some incredible days on the water and are hoping for the same results with a consistent pattern.  We look forward to seeing everyone soon.


July 27 Fishing Report

The crew of Fishing Frenzy has welcomed a new weather pattern with open arms.  Our trips since the super moon have been great.  We have found lots of fish using live bait and trolling plugs.  The sea conditions have been ideal for some offshore fun.  The whales have been very active providing excitement and memories that will last forever.  On the morning trips we have been working hard to get live bait which provides exciting fishing for Bass and Bluefish inshore.  On the slower days, we have managed to shift gears and catch inshore cod with great results.  The water temperatures offshore have reached the upper 60’s and this has brought the sharks and tuna to the waters we fish.  August and September are my favorite months to fish and wee look forward to seeing you on the water catching the big one!

Super Moon, not so much Super Fishing

As cool as the sky looked each evening with the super moon, I am happy to see a new moon cycle.  The end of the week produced some nice 34″ fish before the Super Moon shut the fishing down.  The bass fishing was tough! We had some excellent clients and worked extremely hard searching different structure.  We were blessed with as much live bait as the boat could handle.  A few bluefish enjoyed the live mackerel, but the big bass were not interested.  Saturday afternoon we decided to do some inshore cod fishing and found some very nice schools of fish close to shore.  The rods were bent on every drop!

The weather was epic for a mid summer harbor cruise enjoyed by Katie, Laila, and Katelyn.  The super moon didn’t stop the evening harbor cruises.

As always, we guarantee a great day on the water with top quality customer service.  There are miles of mackerel, pogies, and squid in and around Boston, the fishing should get very good this week.



Happy 4th of July!

The fishing throughout the Boston area has been interesting over the last few weeks.   Some days the fish are all over the place eating anything thrown there way.  Other days we have been working very hard trying all techniques to get them to eat.  On the slower days the crew is putting in as much effort as anyone else and we are getting the fish to bite.  The most exciting trips have been watching bass from 30-48″ crashing herring out of the water.  We have been live lining mackerel with great success when we find the feeding fish.  The tuna are starting to fill into our waters and these trips will start very soon.  Shark season will be in full gear within a few weeks.


A shout out to Nardone Electric from Medford, MA.  We had big bass around the boat all morning, they got the job done with live bait.

Boston Harbor Fishing Report June 5-7 2014

With the fishing season well under way the weather is finally cooperating.  The bass fishing has been decent with patience and live bait.  We have been catching plenty of mackerel in the morning and using them over the rock ledges throughout the harbor.  This method is producing fish up to 42″.

Major Bass and Bluefish Bite

photo 1 (4)Another heat wave for Boston and the fish responded in a way that many anglers extremely happy.  Bass from 28″-50″ were crashing herring all week for miles.  The fishing was epic and continues to be excellent.



Boston Fishing continues to be Excellent

There is a ton of bait set up in all the right places throughout Boston.  The early morning has produced some incredible top water action with big fish feeding on 3-4″ herring.  Sharks and Tuna are starting to show up offshore and it wont be long before Fishing Frenzy starts Tuna and Shark fishing.
