(styleboston) - Deep-sea fishing enthusiasts, it can be done. If Chris Talanian's smile in this Detour is anything to go by, fishing in the Boston Harbor is the next greatest leisure activity. So grab those tackle boxes and set your alarms! 5AM just got a bit more thrilling.
Paul Jacques and Daniel Bruce, General Manager and Executive Chef at the Boston Harbor Hotel, respectively, take us out to the harbor's hottest fishing spot. With the tides moving in and out, the best way to stake your claim is to follow a flock of birds. Stripers and Blue Fish chase smaller bay fish to the surface where the birds swoop down to catch them. By following the birds' patterns, you can estimate where the real catch of the day is laying low.
Paul Jacques explains the concept of catch and release, the recreational fishing technique giving fishing enthusiasts who aim to conserve our natural resources a way to participate. Whether you're cooking afterwards or releasing your catch back into the wild, fishing is a great leisure activity for everybody!
