InShore Charters

Gloucester Striper Fishing Charters

The most exciting inshore charter experience

Striped Bass fishing is the “staple” inshore fish for anglers throughout the Northeast to target, especially in the Gloucester area. Striped Bass Charters are ideal if you’re looking to have a fun day, bend a rod, and take some awesome pictures!  Stripers range anywhere from 18″-50″ and can weigh over 40 pounds. Striper fishing can be performed utilizing countless fishing techniques. Chumming, live lines, and jigging are just a few of the several fishing techniques we use aboard the Kelly Ann. Our techniques are dependent on the time of year, the moon phase, and our knowledge of local fishing patterns. 

At times, we may stick to the local waters of the Merrimack River to target local stripers that invade the fast moving currents in search of an easy meal. On other fishing trips, we may drift the mouth or anchor and set up a ‘chum slick’ to tease the school of Striped Bass and draw them toward the boat.  Gloucester MA is a great place to go for Striper charters!

Often, we will head offshore a bit in search of the Striped Bass based on their feeding patterns. Tackle for the Stripers can range from heavier trolling outfits to extremely light spinning tackle.  A Striper charter is always popular, whether you’re bringing your family or are looking for an action packed day!  Book a Striped Bass charter in Gloucester MA today.
