Rye Fishing

Rye Fishing

Rye is a town on the Atlantic Coast that has a long history of fishing. Portuguese fishermen started fishing in the area in the 1500s. The first permanent settlement in the area was set up in 1623. By the 1700s, Rye was prosperous through providing dried fish to countries in Europe. There are eight islands off of the coast, where Native Americans liked to fish as well. These islands are about 10 miles from the coast. Once a railroad was constructed in the 1840s, Rye became a popular tourist destination because of the easier access to the town. Many people considered it a first-class summer resort throughout the Victorian era, and it remains a popular fishing destination on the east coast.

Rye fishing is known for excellent Bluefin Tuna fishing in the warmer months with many of them up to 1000 pounds. Inshore fishing around Rye can produce lots of Atlantic Mackerel, Bluefish, Flounder, Red Drum. Spanish Mackerel, and Striped Bass, Black Sea Bass, Cod, Haddock, and Pollock are popular targets on bottom nearshore. Offshore in the Atlantic Ocean there are many species of Tuna, including Albacore (Longfin Tuna), Big Eye Tuna, Little Tunny (False Albacore), and Yellowfin Tuna. There are also Blue Marlin, Dolphinfish (Mahi-mahi), Swordfish, and Wahoo.
