More Signs of Boston Harbor’s Resurgence


The Massachusetts Oyster Project is watching new species return to Boston Harbor.

This year we saw the return of Mackerel, which were last seen here decades ago. There also was a new species that feeds on jelly fish. And the ongoing success of the Oystercatchers.

The Item’s Joe Holey Reports “Fish On!

Fishing remains excellent throughout the Harbor, with topwater surface feeds in the mornings, and pogie action throughout the day. It still doesn’t matter whether you fish day or night, low or high tide, the action has been great. Snake Island, Long Island, Wollaston Beach, Winthrop Beach, and Deer Island are all producing trophy size stripers.
