YA-HOO! - I smell fish!

Mackerel are thick and the stripers are all over. 

Regulations as of this date 5/4/2012:

We were very lucky with the new Blue Fin Tuna regs that allow the slot fish this year, thanks to hard work from The Stellwagen Bank Charter Boat Association officers and members.

Also because of their hard work - the new Cod regs allow for 9 fish over 19" inside the GOM RMA(Gulf of Maine - Regulated Mesh Area).

New Haddock regs allow for UNLIMITED numbers over 18".

Bluefish now have a 15 fish limit, and although I'm not happy about it (they've never been regulated and I've never seen a problem) reeling in up to 15 bluefish would be more than enough backbreaking exorcise for just about anyone.

Wolffish are still protected/not allowed for some reason than no one can seem to explain properly!

Cod and Haddock will be coming over the rails soon so give me a call or shot me an email to request your dates soon.  With the broadcast of Nat Geo's "Wicked Tuna" show and the new regs allowing for retention of slot sized BFT this year you can bet it will be a busy season on our charterboats.

Tight Lines,
Capt. Doug Brander
