Meet the Fleet
The F/V Finlander is a 36’ Northern Bay powered by a John Deere 375 horsepower engine.
We fish day trips on the Finlander and catch all of our fish by rod and reel. The target species are pollock, haddock, cod, halibut, cusk, and redfish.
A typical day trip will start around 1am and end around 8pm, as we fish anywhere from 15 miles to 70 miles offshore.
The primary fishing season for the F/V Finlander is April through December.
F/V Finlander II
The F/V Finlander II is the newest addition to the New England Fishmongers fishing fleet. It is a 47’ LeBlanc powered by a Caterpillar 3406 engine.
Originally built for trawling, we converted this vessel from a dragger to a jig boat by removing all nets and net reels, and installing rod holders and electronic jig machines. This is part of an ongoing project in collaboration with other like-minded fishermen around the country, in an effort to reduce our ecological impact while harvesting the highest quality hook-and-line caught fish. We pride ourselves in the Finlander II project as it allows us to be more responsible harvesters of the marine resource.
Finlander II is also a scalloper and is used to scallop off the northern coast of Massachusetts from December through April each year.
