What To Bring

To have a wonderful day on the boat you will want to bring a few things. While Captain Paul and the Reel Pursuit has most all the things you will need for a great day of fishing including life jackets and some sun screen, you may want to bring a few things with you, especially depending on the weather. Certain clothes, any medications, food and beverage as well as a camera to capture a photo of the one that got away are all things you may want to bring!

Clothes

No, you wont need any commercial fishing gear, but it can get cool on the water, make sure you have layers, sweatshirt or a windbreaker. You will also want to wear some sensible shoes. You may also want to bring a hat and sunglasses as the sun can get pretty hot beating down on you and it gets pretty bright on the water

Camera

Make sure to bring your camera, sometimes this is better than your phone. You may also want to bring a video camera or even an underwater camera if you have one. Taking some great photos will be memories you will have to share for a long time.

Snacks

You may want to bring some food and beverages for your day on the water. Feel free to bring your favorite alcoholic beverage as well, but please drink responsibly.

What Fish You Might Catch

Mackerel

There are no limits on the number of Mackerel you can catch. When trips start early enough, we can go catch Mackerel for bait to get the bigger fish!

Flounder

The limit for catching Flounder is each fish must be 12 inches and you’re allowed to keep 8 fish per person.

Bluefish

Just like the Mackerel, there is not size or number limit on the number of Bluefish you can catch. These fish put up a fun fight and have really sharp teeth.

Striped Bass

To keep your Striped Bass, a fish it needs to be 28 inches in length and each person is allowed to keep one fish.

Bluefin Tuna

Tuna, probably the most elusive and most fun fish to try to catch. The limits on Tuna are unique. Each person is allowed 1 fish 27″ to 47″ long and 1 fish 48″ to 72″ long. Finding and catching these fish is an adventure.

Shark

The ocean is full of multiple types of shark. These fish are a lot of fun to catch. Most times you’ll catch a Blue shark, and you’ll probably throw that back as they are not that good to eat. However, should you catch a Mako, Thresher or Porbeagle, there is no size limit, though we would not bring in a baby, they make for great eating.

My family had a great time fishing for Striped Bass! Paul and Eric were very friendly and knowledgeable. Our day on the water started out pretty exciting as we headed out, caught mackerel for bait, and caught several fish (four of which were large enough to keep) all within the first few hours.

Brooke T.YELP REVIEW

Highly recommended for all types of events. I went with my family (4 total) for a last minute 4th of July weekend (we went on the 5th). Captain Paul was able to accommodate us even for a last minute booking. His boat was beautiful and very spacious and had all the materials we needed for fishing. Captain Paul has over 20 years of experience and a lot of knowledge of Boston's history so we learned a few things from him.

His mate, Steve, was also very helpful and nice. He helped set up all our equipment and showed how to properly fish. Overall, this would be my fishing charter choice if I were to come back to Boston.

Annie C.YELP REVIEW

I don't think there's a better way to spend a randomly fun day than chartering a boat and hittin' the high seas. I had a great time fishing on Reel Pursuit w/ Captain Paul. The boat itself is very nice. It's a 34 foot custom made Blackwell w/ twin 250hp engines, a large cockpit area w/ teak floorboards, comfortable seating, a small head, and all the fishing gear you can imagine.
