Short Description: Quality Saltwater Fly Fishing for Striped Bass

Long Description: Quality saltwater sportfishing on the Massachusetts coast specializing in cod fishing on Stellwagen Bank and Beyond, giant bluefin and fly and light-tackle fishing for striped bass and bluefish in Boston Harbor and the South Shore--Orvis Endorsed fly fishing quide. 2001 Orvis Saltwater Fly Fishing Guide of the Year.

B-Fastís charter operations was established on South Shore in the spring of 1989, running offshore cod fishing trips to Stellwagen Bank on the JANET B, a new, diesel-powered 31 foot J.C. Sportfisherman. Marketing at four regional sportsmenís shows commenced in the winter of 1990. At the time, codfish stocks were on the decline due to commercial exploitation and the economy was in the throws of a recession. Fortunately, fisheries management and conservation measures and a vibrant economy over the past decade have led to improvement in fish stocks and growth in the recreational charter fishing industry in Massachusetts

To cope with the demand, B-Fastís offshore operations have grown significantly from one charter vessel departing from Green Harbor in Marshfield to a fleet of as many as ten vessels working cooperatively fishing cod on Stellwagen. Our marketing has also expanded to include nine regional Sportsmenís show venues in the Northeast during the winter months.

Further, we advertise and provide weekly professional fishing reports in publications and on the internet. The Star Ledger, Noríeast Saltwater and the New England, New Jersey and Long Island issues of the Fisherman publish weekly reports.,,, and the are but a few websites that list our reports. will even email these reports to subscribers, as the reports become available. Beyond that, reports are broadcast on radio shows on Long Island, in Boston and the South Shore.

In the summer of 1990, B-Fast started offering giant bluefin charters to clients. We were the first company to institute the policy of sharing the proceeds from the sale of a marketable bluefin with the charter clients in our area. Federal law mandates that, giant bluefin must be sold by the permitted vessel landing the tuna.

We return 1/3 of the proceeds from the sale to the charter. We have consistently performed on that contract.

In the spring of 1995, B-Fast initiated inshore fly fishing and light-tackle charters for striped bass and bluefish in Boston Harbor and on the South Shore. Once again conservation measures fostered a restoration of the striped bass to historical numbers and saltwater fly-fishing was expanding along the Eastcoast. In the spring of 1996, our fly-fishing operation was endorsed by the Orvis Company of Manchester Vermont. In the Winter of 1997, our operation was endorsed by OMC/Hydra-Sports with inclusion in the Hydra-Sports Fishing Team Program. A new 20 ft. Hydra-Sports Ocean Fly-Fishing skiff was put into service and based in Cohasset Harbor in the spring of 1997. Presently, our inshore charters depart from Cohasset Harbor, Back River in Weymouth and from Bostonís Roweís Wharf with up to four 20 ft. casting platforms working in the Harbor and along the coast of the South Shore.

B-Fast Charters is owned and operated by Capt. Mike Bartlett
