Boston Harbor is a large harbor which constitutes the western extremity of Massachusetts Bay. The harbor is sheltered from Massachusetts Bay and the open Atlantic Ocean by a combination of the Winthrop Peninsula and Deer Island to the north, the hooked Nantasket Peninsula and Point Allerton to the south, and the harbor islands in the middle. The harbor is often described as being split into an inner harbor and an outer harbor. The harbor itself comprises fifty square miles with 180 miles (290 km) of shoreline and 34 harbor islands. Most of our inshore Striped Bass fishing Charters are fishing right in Boston Harbor. The many reefs, shoals, ledges and jagged island shorelines make the harbor a paradise for trophy Striped Bass. Our Boston fishing charters specialize in fishing with both live Pogies and mackerel, cut bait and light tackle. Boston Harbor provides some of the best Striper habitat and consistent fishing anywhere from Cape Cod to Gloucester.
