Wow what a fishery we have in the NE….and Boston is no exception. If you ask guys where to go for true trophy stripers you’ll get answers like Cape Cod Canal, Montauk, Block Island, Virginia Beach, Oregon Inlet and others certainly make many anglers' lists. While I have certainly fished in Boston, I would never have considered having Boston on my list. Not anymore….Boston is right up there with the others and I’m certain the opportunity to catch a fish of a lifetime in Boston is a very real probability.
As the “boots on the ground” promotions person for Navico, I was in Boston to demo the new and incredible Simrad NSS Touch Screen to media and dealers and, of course, these things have to be “tested” with a little “research”. Captain Chuck Destefano of Boston Sport Fishing Charters was my Captain of choice for this mission. Chuck’s boat was already outfitted with some of the finest electronics on the market, Simrads NSE Series including Structure Scan, Sirius, Auto Pilot and the new “chirp” technology sonar- BSM2, not to mention one of the finest Airmar ducers available. When we “saw” fish we had every confidence that fish were exactly what we were looking at.
The ability to mark a spot, even to the side of the boat on Structure Scan, and navigate to it is very effective without a doubt. You can integrate into any system - Auto Pilot, Sonic Hub, Structure Scan, Sirius, VHF, Electronic Compass or any NMEA device - how and when you want it and have the ability to control it all from one device.
Add the unique feature “track back” - the ability to look at something that went off my screen 100’s of feet ago - and these are real fish finding, fish catching machines.
The proof is in the pictures and best part….more new and exciting things are right around the corner.
