The South Shore Junior Anglers is a boat based program for boys and girls ages 8 – 16 years old. No experience is necessary. Just an interest in fishing and the marine environment. The boat will leave the Hingham Shipyard and we will fish Quincy Bay and the Boston Harbor Islands. We will be fishing for bait, bass, and flounder. Rods and life jackets are included.

The purpose of the SSJA is to provide children the opportunity to learn all about fishing in a safe, fun environment. Our goal is to deliver and practice the skills and knowledge necessary to inspire a lifetime of fishing and environmental stewardship. Captain Jack Holmes holds a United States Coast Guard 100 Ton Master License. He has been fishing the waters of Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket Sound, Northeast Canyons, and the South Shore for over 20 years. First Aid / CPR certified.
