Nice shot with lovely client Lisa with a low 30’s lb class Striped Bass from Rhode Island’s upper Narragansett Bay fishery! Lisa caught this fish to the amazement of her fellow Anglers on board in less than 10 ft of water and in some heavy cover! Landing this fish on the light gear near structure like that earned her 👍🏻👍🏻 from the Capt! A solid Lady angler! Gear: Shimano Thunnus 4000, Shimano NE Teramar Med action and 15lb Powerpro Green #mbaprostaff #fishing #shimanofishing #fishshimano #bass #bassfishing #stripedbass #stripedbassfishing #lighttackle #fish #catchandrelease #hoorag #deepoceanapparel #eastcoastcharters #xtratuf #stormr #rhodeisland #castmag #newengland #fishingtrip #bulkbeefjerky #fishpowerpro #striper #picoftheday #hunting #ocean #sea #photography #ladyangler #girlswhofish

Decided to break up the routine a little ways back and hopped on the OG sled with fellow @fish_shimano_north_america / @hookerelectricreels staffer Capt Lou of @hotreels_sportfishing_charters to help out for a day in some deeeeeep water. Nice fish here for Joe! Pretty cool fishery with a lots to learn yet! New England has some of the sickest contrast in species variety and location diversity on the planet and some killer captains and guided sportfishing operations to boot! Be sure to give Lou a follow for more innovative fishing and sick artwork too! #mbaprostaff #rhodeisland #newengland #fish #fishing #deep #costasunglasses #seewhatsoutthere #offshore #offshorefishing #biggamefishing #bluewater #shimano #shimanofish #fishshimano #fishpowerpro #seafood #travel #jigging #necanyons #hookerelectricreels #shimanotiagra #ocean #tilefish #goldentile #bottomfishing #shimanobeastmaster #deepwater #fauxteak

Doing lots of Kegels to keep the horseshoe in place 😂 3 in row for us on our last 3 topwater trips. Have had the pleasure of fishing with some killer elite clients that have traveled a good ways to come experience our local fisheries. Booking us for 2-4 day spans at a time for last 2 weeks. Having an understanding of the gear and species your targeting when the captain puts you into the right scenario to get bit, can drastically influence the days end result. Especially when opportunity can present quickly and unexpectedly for a limited number of shots each day. For about the same cost and much less aggravation of trying it yourself, you can hire one of the handful of elite sportfishing operations that specialize in targeting one of the largest and most evolved species on the planet here off New England, Find an outfit that fits your needs and interests today and make sure you reach out to them to secure your spots, this season or for next season. #mbaprostaff #shimano #fishshimano #shimanofishing #tuna #tunafishing #ahi #sushi #bluefin #bluefintuna #jiggingandpopping #topwatertuna #spinninggear #newengland #fishing #fish #seafood #hunting #biggamehunting #bigfish #strategicangler #seafood #travel #vacation #fishpowerpro #costasunglasses

Lots of pics gathered from the canyons to the cape during the past two weeks but just recently We had the distinct pleasure of having these two razor sharp Anglers booked with us for the last 3 days. @dietz.bryan and @tomas_nomas from @jigskinz_nlo traveled up from the south on a 3 day binder to target and test some gear on a mix of NE species. We had to shift our plans around the weather patterns to plan each run accordingly, it allowed us to target Striped Bass on Popping Plugs, Black Sea Bass on Jigging Gear and Bluefin Tuna on stickbaits and spinning gear. We managed to get it done each of the 3 days strait and on all 3 species making for a great time on the water and most certainly some new found friendships. Great guys and solid fishing, got lots of great photo and video over the past few days! We’re looking forward to taking them out for something much deeper next trip! Thanks for choosing to fish with us guys! #mbaprostaff #jigskinz #bass #bassfishing #stripedbass #tuna #bluefintuna #jiggingandpopping #blackbass #blackseabass #seabass #seafood #jigging #topwater #topwaterfishing #fish #fishing #saltwater #rhodeisland #massachusetts #NLO #fisheatfish #shimanofishing #fishshimano

Kyle, Brandon and I have been running trips to the lanes and edge for the last two weeks. The Mahi and white marlin bite has been consistently productive from the lanes to the edge and more recently we’ve been treated to some non structure related open water tuna feeds by yellowfin and eyeballs. Albeit it tricky to line up a shot in front of a cooperative fish with this micro feeding moon pattern, the style of fishing is one all to familiar to us, here’s a nice shot of one our client Eric managed from our last run. Crazy year for the blue deep water this season! With things starting to heat up to the north and east we’ll be getting ready to add some bluefin back Into the mix very soon. #mbaprostaff #tuna #ahi #sushi #fish #fishing #jiggingandpopping #spinninggear #topwaterfishing #necanyons #shimanofish #fishshimano #biggame #eastcoastcharters #treeguysportfishing #rhodeisland #newengland #seafood #boat #saltwater #yellowfin #yellowfintuna

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!
