Karen Lynn Charters


Gloucester, MA

Fishing Fishing

Bio


We built the Karen Lynn specifically to be our dream boat for specialized offshore charters and the commercial fishing we do in the off-season. It is without question one of the most comfortable, seaworthy, and rigged fishing machines in the Northeast. Collin Mackenzie is a Licensed USCG Captain who has fished hard since he was a young child. Growing up in Gloucester on the Annisquam River, Collin was always on the water. After college, in addition to fishing, Collin worked and managed Fisherman’s Outfitter’s main shop in Gloucester. While there, Collin gained an incredible knowledge of gear, tackle and rigging. Collin is definitely not “old school” when it comes to gear; he is up-to-date on all the cutting-edge rigs and tricks, as he was featured in the pro issue of Salt Water Sportsman on “How to target Boston Bluefin” in 2011. He began fishing with Jim in 2003 on the Anna B and then helped Jim build the Karen Lynn. Collin’s knowledge, experience, and incredibly positive attitude not only will help you put big fish on the boat, but will make it a pleasure to be out with him.

Bluefin Tuna

The small and medium bluefin tuna fishery has been fantastic since 2000. Small and medium tuna (under 73”) range from 30 to 225 pounds. We have been very successful trolling, as well drifting live bait. The boat’s sonar gives us a great advantage in finding pods of tuna that are feeding below the surface. We will use a combination of light spinning and conventional rods depending on what you are looking for and the conditions. Up to 6 anglers.
