New Bedford Supports the #1 Fishing Fleet in America. The infrastructure is set up for fishing. This is the perfect port for running a Tournament. Fuel, Bait and Ice is all adjacent to our weigh station and the Marina. If you look at the Map of Inner Harbor, the weigh station is adjacent to 1.Tonnessen Park & 5. HDC Visitor's Center, just inland a couple hundred yards is a fuel dock, an Ice House and the Marina is only a third of a mile away. All this means much less cost, convenience and more fishing and social time for you and your crew. There also is a water taxi from Pope's island to the State Pier as well as a bus system, to walk is less than a mile across the Fish Island Bridge. New Bedford has been revitalizing its' Downtown Waterfront Areas. If you look on the last map on the button "Map of the Inner Harbor" you will see that there are many great places to visit, great restaurants, bars and grilles.

Perfect for you, your crew and your family!


The Board of Directors have taken a few field trips to the New.... New Bedford Waterfront. We have met with City officials many times and they are all extremely excited. As we walk around the waterfront and tell the locals who we are. We are met with big smiles and cooperation. The new Waterfront is awesome, cobblestone streets, nice sidewalks, local shops, bars and restaurants. All adjacent to our weigh station and awards banquet.
