Sea Lamprey Unusual Catch

This past weekend we caught a few mackerel that had a traveler leaching to the side of their bodies. These eel-like creatures are known as lampreys. Lucky for us they didn’t seem to damage our live bait, as we were able to catch several nice bass.

Fishing Report

We were lucky to spend our time on the water with some great guests. Tisi Farmer fought through seasickness all morning while we jigged up live bait, a selfless act that allowed her party to catch some fish! We also were entertained by Kyle Folk and company from Connecticut. They all dared one of their buddies to let the lamprey latch onto his arm and, in facing the challenge, he let out every word of profanity in the book… It turned  out to be a little more painful than expected. Overall a very fun time, looking forward to this week.

Taking your Catch to Lobsta Land

We always highly recommend Lobsta Land Restaurant fishing passengers on the Connemara Bay. Everyone who goes their to have their catch fried, grilled, or blackened always returns kind words. Typically they say something like, ” that was the best seafood I have ever eaten in my life”. To learn more about having the fish you catch charter fishing with us in Gloucester check out the Catch N Eat page. Chances are you will visit Lobsta Land again when you visit again if you go there once. There also is a good chance you might see us there.

    We had a great trip, caught some very nice stripers and I recommend this boat and crew to everyone. Captain Kevin and son Kellen are very knowledgeable, personable and hard-working. They know Gloucester harbor and environs and will put you on the fish. Getting them into the boat is up to you! Our trip included watching (and helping) them tend their lobster pots for 30 minutes and it was fascinating and informative. Great day and thanks for the memories and pictures!

    That blackened striped bass was the best fish I’ve ever had!
