Last few offshore trips (a mix of tourny and private vessel charter) were all to the edge targeting fish in the north east canyons. The last 3 runs have given us a decent mix of action at a variety of species. We’ve managed to connect with some nice yellowfin to the mid 60lb class, some white Marlin, Smaller Wahoo and some casting to some of the nicest Mahi I’ve seen here in New England in quite a while. The first fish I’m holding in this set was a nice bull we had crush a @fish_shimano_north_america colt sniper jerk on a lighter twin power 5000 set up, forgot these guys could pull so hard on the lighter gear! Got the female that was with him too also a solid fish. Hoping to get some fun size bluefin to creep in closer to home to get that program underway but till then we’ll be probing the edge with each window that we can line up and running a handful of inshore trips. #shimanofish #fishshimano #mbaprostaff #fish #fishing #deepapparel #deepoceanapparel #costasunglasses #hoorag #xtratuf #craftyonecustoms #eastcoastcharters #mahi #mahimahi #dolphinfish #wahoo #marlin #tuna #bigfish #offshoreoriginals #boat #ocean #seafood #sushi #rhodeisland

While waiting for the offshore water to lay down a little have managed to sneak in a few night time bass runs closer to home. Here’s long time client and close friend Corry with big girl that he opted to release. She had a lot of fight in her both on the line and visibly along her flanks, likely from some years of successful spawning! We have a truly spectacular seasonal striped bass fishery here in Rhode Island and Cape Cod! If you haven’t experienced it yet, make sure you add a visit to the region to your list! (Fish was landed using a Shimano Thunnus 6000 spooled with 30lb powerpro matched with a Shimano NE Teramar Series MH rod) #mbaprostaff #mbastaff #shimanofish #fishshimano #eastcoastcharters #eastcoastchartersri #bass #stripedbass #striper #bassfishing #bigbass #biggame #rhodeisland #capecod #fish #fishing #seafood #travel #photography #picoftheday #fishpowerpro #catchandrelease #boat

Group Lap Self timer shot on the GoPro of an nice 82” fish (there were much bigger around) we were lucky enough to score during a short bite window on some classic tuna grounds close to home! Grateful for the right friends and intel to line us up for the right shot at these remarkable fish! Lots of bait and life offshore here in Rhode Island and Massachusetts, make sure you lock in a spot with your favorite captains up this way. The odds look good 👍🏻👍🏻! #tuna #sushi #biggamefishing #bigfish #mbaprostaff #shimano #fishshimano #offshore #ocean #fish #fishing #newengland #hunting #fishpowerproy

Evolutionary balance of deadly yet beautiful! Released a lot of sharks yesterday but this decent Mako was the nicest of the day, not a lot of drift made it a little more challenging than usual so I offered this one something we typically do for bluefin up here in the NE and it made for and instant pay off. Lots of fun on lighter @shimanofish Talica Set ups and a few of Lou’s Custom @craftyonecustoms offshore series rods. Mill pond flat day out there with impressive biomass, offshore Rhode Island looks primed for Aqua Armageddon! #shimano #shimanofishing #catchandrelease #mbaprostaff #shimanofish #tuna #deepoceanapparel #deepapparel #xtratuf #costasunglasses #seewhatsoutthere #shark #sharkweek #sharks #sharkteeth #fishpowerpro #fishgloomis #craftyonecustoms #fishingworld #fish #fishing #boat #saltlife #ownerhooks #shimanotalica #ocean #outdoors #makoshark #biggamehunting #biggame

This weekend officially wraps up the bay season for us. That being said we have still managed to get into solid bass right through the end of June and into the first week of July so far. Mixed in with the bass have been some very unexpected large summer Flounder in some hot shallow water that have been boldly striking large mid water offerings geared for the Bass! Always a lesson in humility getting schooled by nature each time we think we have it all figured out! 🤔 #mbaprostaff #fish #fishing #saltwater #costasunglasses #shimanofish #fishshimano #hoorags #xtratuf #deepapparel #seafood #lighttackle #rhodeisland #fishrhodeisland #newengland #ocean #boat #boatlife #fluke #flukefishing #flounder #summerflounder #coltsniper

Always a great time with this Sharp lady angler on board! Honored that Miss @aavianablue makes the trip down from Canada to book with us and take part in our fisheries here in the states! Stripers and Carp this spring and hopefully something a bit larger and blue this fall! #mbaprostaff #shimano #shimanofish #fishshimano #bass #bassfishing #carp #carpfishing #topwaterfishing #rhodeisland #canada #girlswhofish #catchandrelease #catchphotorelease #stripedbass #striper #lighttackle #deepapparel #seewhatsoutthere #craftyonecustoms #jiggingworldcorp #onthewater #seafood #ocean #nature #outdoors

Nice sized cow Dolphin/Mahi From last weeks cut short side mission south! Anxious to get out of the brown water and into the blue here close to home now! #shimano #mbaprostaff #talica #tiagra #mahimahi #mahi #dolphin #dolphinfish #fish #fishing #seafood #ocean #nature #shimanofish #fishshimano #deepapparel #deepoceanapparel #costasunglasses #seewhatsoutthere #northcarolina #fishcarolina #hoorags #craftyonecustoms #xtratuf #chatterbait

Left the bay bass chewing a week ago for some side work down south and picked right back up where I left off today, on back to back trips 😆🤘! Lots of pics to come, But had to share this moment of perfection with my IG friends! If you haven’t experienced the New @shimanofish Stella FJ yet, you have no idea what your missing. Many of my clients have had the chance to try them out this spring, the performance of this reel is going to change the game for inshore the same way the raw power of its larger sibling the Stella SW did for big game jigging and casting! If you see me on the water this season and want to give one a spin feel free to motor up and check them out! #mbaprostaff #shimanofish #fishshimano #fishgloomis #powerpro #fishpowerpro #eastcoastcharters #fish #fishing #bass #trout #seabass #tuna #flounder #fluke #stripedbass #stripedbassfishing #bay #boat #ocean #nature #outdoors #photography #stella #shimanostella #stellafj #rhodeisland #fishrhodeisland

Finally have a free day, but only to prep for another stretch of really busy days ahead here. We’ve been on the water literally every day since the 1st week of May casing one of the most dynamic spring bass fisheries I’ve ever seen in Rhode Island’s upper Narragansett bay. Crazy distance covered from day to day with their movement patterns and sparse bait mass had created super tide dependent feeding in small windows on bait but opened the door to a spectacular shallow water lure fishery keying in on the more instinctive aggression of these world class game fish in skinny water! Grateful to our clients for booking us for this Bite year after year and to our network of trusted friends and captains that work with us to keep the pace going! Solid RI Spring Run and it’s only just beginning, gonna be a great year to fish with New England charter Operations! Make sure you hit up your favorites soon to get your spot!! Attached a few highlights collages to show just some of the mixed size fish from last few trips from 12-42lbs all in skinny water 🤘#mbaprostaff #shimanofish #fishshimano #costasunglasses #seewhatsoutthere #bass #bassfishing #stripedbass #stripedbassfishing #topwater #boat #fishing #fish #seafood #catchandrelease #photography #ocean #bay #rhodeisland #capecod #eastcoastcharters

Rolled with the Kyle’s @the_treeguy_sportfishing to shake down one of the smaller boats and make the obligatory fillet(s) for friends run up north, a few days back. Bite was nuts as usual this time of year literally limited out a 4 man crew in one drift on nice haddock. Mixed in were loads of nice healthy cod. The future looks good for brown town if the trend stays as it is. Lots of herring, sandeels and squid around too, table could be set for a hell of a bass and tuna season this year! Crushed the fish using @shimanofish Trinidad 16’s and Torium 14’s matched with Shimano NE Teramar Series and Custom built @craftyonecustoms series Jigging Rods! Good to be out on the salt again! #mbaprostaff #fish #fishing #fishshimano #shimanofish #shimanofishing #costasunglasses #seewhatsoutthere #xtratuf #bottomfishing #groundfish #seafood #cod #haddock #freshfish #bubbablade #bulkbeefjerky #treeguysportfishing #eastcoastcharters

With the new season about to break open here’s another shot of a nice topwater bluefin from near then end of last season! This guy smashed an @strategicangler Espada in a Ballyhoo Pattern, late in the day after we broke off from the main fleet working on some fast moving surface feeds off Cape Cod! Fish was landed using a @shimanofish Stella 18000 matched with an Ocea Full Throttle 83H. Won’t be long now! #tuna #bluefin #bluefintuna #fish #mbaprostaff #costasunglasses #seewhatsoutthere #biggame #hunting #ocean #boat #fishshimano #shimanofish #xtratuf #stormr #bulkbeefjerky #fishing

A little TBT to this mega topwater Rooster I was able to score this week last spring, In honor of some close friends heading down to fish with my Panamanian Bro’s Mike and Jaimie down at @pescapanama next week! Get it done guys! Landed this beaut on topwater using a @shimanofish twinpower 14000 spooled with 60lb @fishpowerpro original and matched with a @craftyonecustoms built 150g @jiggingworld ghost hunter travel popping rod! One of the most unique and exciting topwater strikers in all of Sportfishing! #roosterfish #shimano #shimanofishing #shimanofish #mbaprostaff #aftco #costasunglasses #seewhatsoutthere #pescapanama #fishpanama #panama #jiggingandcasting #jiggingandpopping #topwater #topwaterfishing #fgknot #craftyonecustoms #jiggingworldcorp #deepoceanapparel #hoorags #loonoutdoors #simmsfishing #fish #fishingtrip #bigfish #biggame #hunting #boat #photography #outdoors
