The end of the season was all Tuna fishing for the customers and the crew. As the Haddock trips slowed up we switched gears and only went Tuna fishing.
Being on the grounds and knowing the patterns of the bait and fish definitely gives us a good advantage over others. We had a handful of clients who wanted to try Tuna fishing. One group ended up with two giant Bluefin on the deck in a few hours. A few groups got one fish and some groups caught small 100 pound fish that we let go but did keep a couple for the grill when legal.
The Tuna season ended on the second week of November this year because the quota was caught! This was the first year in over 15 that the quota was actually caught. The good new is other nations were trying to get our quota because we were not catching it, so now there should be no problem with loosing any and possibly get more quota for next year.
Next season will begin April 15 for Haddock, The Lisa & Jake will fish for ground fish until September when we swap over to Tuna fishing.
Lisa’s Lookout will be closed for renovations this upcoming season so please make plans early to get reservations at area hotels.
Thank you to all and Merry Christmas!

Large bull summer Haddock are in full force giving anglers a great fight and nice sized take home bags of filets
The Joe Poole group was slamming the haddock Saturday when the visit of the local blue shark showed up
These sport sharks are caught a released for another day
Well Saturday when the line was deployed it screamed out of my hand and a large tuna was hooked
These folks fought the tuna for two hours and many times was close to the boat until the line broke with disappointment
I estimated the fish was well over 600/pounds
A great effort on a stand up shark rod

Another week of great fishing charters from Gloucester on the Lisa&Jake! Groups were into Large Summer Haddock, these fish are healthy and built like bulls! Summer always brings in the larger Haddock as the spawn has been done early spring and the fish are all bulked up
Fishing from Gloucester on charter boat Lisa&Jake has been hot! The Haddock have been on the move out of the shoal water last week. Large Cod have moved in and taken over. We did some searching to find another group or two of Large Haddock to the east. A little longer ride was producing great results as groups filled fish totes with nice Haddock, Pollock and Cusk!
A stop to a near by wreck one day scored some of the largest Red fish in Gloucester waters, doubles of nice Reds to 16 inched were brought to the table!
Summer fishing is coming soon book your trips in advance for best dates
The Haddock fishing report from f/v Lisa&Jake Gloucester Ma is reporting a ton of fish! The folks from Ct made the first trip out to Jeffries ledge via Tillies. The reports are anglers were lock and load! The action was non stop, lot of smaller fish in the mix so you really had to adjust the bait and weed through the Cod and the short Haddock to get the bag limits. A few Pollock came to gaff as well as a Cusk or two.
A new Shared Charter has opened up! MAY 16 has 3 open spots!
