About High Hook

High Hook is a private charter boat out of Duxbury Ma run by Captain Willie Woodruff. He has been fishing these waters since he could walk, and has been running fishing charters in Massachusetts bay for Bluefin Tuna and the local bays for Striped Bass for over 12 years.  Duxbury Harbor is a quick ride to Stellwagen Bank and Massachusetts bay, some of the best fishing grounds in the World.


Captain Willie has caught hundreds of giants over the years and every year High Hook is among the top boats for giant Bluefin tunas hooked and landed. His patience on the water and love for getting away from other boats, brings bites on days when there are not many fish around. 

No matter what species we are targeting, High Hook strives at being the best at putting customers on fish.

Bluefin Tuna Fishing

Massachusetts Bay and Stellwagen Bank have some of the best Bluefin Tuna fishing in the world. Every year, people come from all over to get in on the action. 

Tuna show up in late spring/early Summer and stay here all Summer long into the Fall, feeding on the the abundance of baitfish this area has to offer.

Just a quick run across Massachusetts Bay puts us on the fishing grounds of Stellwagen Bank, a bank that at its shallowest part is 65 feet deep on the Southwest corner. 

Striped Bass Fishing

Duxbury and the surrounding bays have some of the best Striped Bass fishing the Northeast has to offer. The steep channels and rips located inside the bays make for some excellent structure to hold fish. 

No Experience Needed

We take out people from their first time being on a boat, to avid fisherman who travel the world in search of trophy fish. We run trips for Haddock and cod, Striped Bass, Bluefish, Bluefin Tuna, Sharks, and more. Check out all the trips we offer and more information on them.

The Boats

Calvin Beal 30'

*NEW FOR 2021*  We will be running a brand new custom Calvin Beal 30ft boat with a 12 foot beam designed for fishing and comfort. The boat is rigged with all brand new Simrad electronics and state of the art technology. It is powered by a 440hp Yanmar engine, which will be one of the faster boats in the fleet, to get you to and from the fishing grounds quicker. More time for fishing.  

"Cape Cod" 26'

High Hook is a 26' Cape Cod. The boat is rigged for fishing with two large live wells to give us the best bait in the fleet. It was rigged with all new electronics in 2019 and is powered by a 420hp Yanmar engine. The boat cruises at 27-30 knots and tops out around 34 knots. It's a great boat for inshore bass trips as it only draws 3 feet. The boat has caught hundreds of tuna as well during the Summer months.
