Fishing Reports

Shared Charter dates posted

The Shared Charter fishing trips for Spring Haddock fishing have been posted. Early Spring has brought some of the best Fishing to our Gloucester waters. This has been a bonus for folks that like light tackle fishing.

The shoal waters were the fish gathered can be reached with an eight oz. weight. This is plenty for the skilled angler. Light jigs also can bring up a feisty Haddock when presented as a tasty treat for a hungry Haddock.

Regulations have not been posted yet but for the first year in many there is proposed to be an increase in bag limits and seasons for Haddock.

These new rules would be in effect for May 1 2019

Gloucester Haddock Fishing Charters

Haddock fishing charters outside Gloucester continues to be red hot! Folks on Kayman Charters F/V Lisa&Jake continue to pick and choose the largest fish to maximize the yield!

Haddock to 28 in have been coming over the gunwales non stop for most of the day, the catch has been 95% haddock, very few Cod this year and other throw backs make a great trip!

We did catch a 22 in black back flounder and a 30 in Halibut that had to be released.

The fish are still in the shallow water but soon to migrate to the deeper  water as the water temps begin to rise.

Weekend trips are available and the next Shared trip is Friday June 29

Shared Charters for Haddock will begin in April on the Lisa&Jake . Gloucester’s Kayman Charters has been taking clients to top fishing spots since 1990. Although the fishing has changed drastically over the decades, Captain Kevin Twombly continues to target and fill the Lisa&Jake with legal limits of top quality good eating fish!


My opinion, I do not want to stop a family from going out in there boat and catching a Cod or two for Dinner.

Also if the private boats Stayed  inside in May catching Cod, this should limit the discards substantially.


February 9, 2018
DMF is seeking public comment on how to address the recent New England Fisheries Management Council recommendation on 2018 Gulf of Maine (GOM) cod and haddock recreational limits. Of specific interest is whether to: (1) eliminate the existing state-waters private anglers 1-fish allowance for GOM cod and retain status quo regulations for GOM haddock, or (2) maintain our private angler allowance for cod and require additional constraints on GOM haddock. Per the Council’s recommendation, the latter option would result in a 2-fish reduction in the for-hire bag GOM haddock limit (from 12-fish to 10-fish) and a May GOM haddock closure for private anglers. See Table below for details.

The regulations will be the same as last year with 12 Haddock per man plus and extra 24 fish for the Capt. and Mate to be split up among the group{after the Capt. gets dinner!}.

There is no Cod in the forecast and don’t expect to see it, Sorry! Not my doing. There has been plenty of Cusk in the warmer months that are great eating and go 8-20 pounds.Gloucester Fishing Charters Kayman Charters

Shared trips will start in April as I am getting a lot of calls for the Shared trips. A lot of regulars go on these trips and they are all great folks to fish and hang out with.

Last Call for Haddock!

Haddock fishing will open again on November 1! The Lisa &Jake will make some November trips this year to load up on some Haddock and Pollock for the freezer!

October Tuna has been hot and will be sure to continue for a while with the abundance of bait and warm weather.

Recreational size Tuna around 100 pounds have been taken on most trips just 10 miles off the beech, along with giant 400 plus size fish that are released on the side of the boat.

Shark fishing is heating up!

200 pound Porbeagle shark

200 pound Porbeagle shark


Porbeagle Sharks have invaded our offshore grounds. Every trip we get a shot at one or two Sharks. these ferocious predators are after anything that moves including your prized Haddock!

Baits are put out on a shark rod  and we have had several hook ups. Larger sharks over 300 pounds have been released because it is to much meat for some groups. We have landed a handful of Sharks under 200 pounds. The are very similar to a Mako shark in looks and flavor for steaks on the bbq!

Haddock fishing has been steady with a nice mix of Pollock and Cusk. Lot of action on the full day trips!

Shared, full day and Marathons all have availability!

Fishing has been fantastic this past week with a nice mix of fish!
Pollock, Cusk and Haddock have been coming over the gunwales on every drop!
The fish have moved to some deeper water than the last few weeks and the Summer weather rolls through. The Haddock like the cooler darker water so as the days get longer and the temperatures rise they seek these conditions.
Porbeagle Sharks have shown up everywhere and we have had encounters with them. These are good eating fish like Mako Shark  and add some excitement to the day.
August has a few shared trips open and weekends are open for private charters see kaymancharters.com for reservations
