Welcome To Ipswich Bay Angling! Specializing in fly fishing and light tackle for striped bass and blue fish in the Rowley, Ipswich, and Parker Rivers, Plumb Island Sound, Crane Beach and Ipswich Bay. Captain Michael Hart fishes out of the Rowley River in a 20' Key West CC, the "Linda Marie". It's able to get into some skinny water for sight casting on the flats in front of Crane Beach, as well as handle some pretty rough stuff if the weather isn't picture perfect. Ipswich Bay Angling welcomes anglers of all skill levels and experience. Captain Michael offers personalized casting instruction, so even if it's the first time you've held a fly rod, you'll be throwing tight loops in no time at all. The Linda Marie is outfitted with a full complement of Rise Fishing Co. fly rods, Cheeky Fly Fishing reels and assorted spinning gear for any situation. However, if an Angler has a favorite rod, he or she is more than welcome to bring it. Ipswich Bay Angling is a member of Stripers Forever, and practices catch and release fishing.
Ipswich Bay Anglers fishes the striper season from early May through October, on Saturdays, Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays. Rates are $350 for 4 hours, for two anglers. What to bring: I recommend dressing in layers, it can be chilly in the morning and then downright hot an hour or two later... Sunglasses (polarized), Sunscreen, wide brimmed hat or baseball cap, a windbreaker or light rain jacket, camera, snacks (Captain Michael will provide bottled water, seltzer and a thermos of coffee), and a positive attitude!

Disclaimer: There are no guarantees is fishing. Captain Michael will work his butt off to get you into fish and make sure you have a great time, but there are those rare days when they just won't cooperate.
