Got cabin fever?  Trying to plan some spring time adventures?  Boat all ready to splash and looking for a great way to rush the season?  New England Boating TV can offer plenty of suggestions, even if you missed the show last fall and winter or don’t have cable access to NESN (the New England Sports Network).  Just go online toNew England Boating TV  for a look at the shows from the past four seasons.  

In each of them, hosts Parker Kelley and Tom Richardson offer a light-hearted but authentic half-hour look at a great New England Boating destination, including both fresh and salt water.  They cover points of interest, special tours ashore and afloat, scenic vistas, docking facilities, navigation tips, dining opportunities that range from lobster rolls at a picnic table to lobster thermidor on a white tablecloth, and shopping.  A good one to start with comes from New London, Connecticut (Season 1, Episode 6), since the Thames River warms up earlier than the open waters of Long Island Sound.  And be sure to note that locals pronounce the river’s name phonetically, not the way the Brits pronounce the original’s name in London.  

Tom, a former Managing Editor for Salt Water Sportsman, has worked some fishing into those NEB shows, but beginning this year, 2017, he is also offering New England Fishing episodes that will air on Monday evenings at 6:30 and Wednesday afternoons at 2:30 all spring.  Catch each one online a week later at the New England Boating Website.  In these episodes, Tom ranges all over New England in both fresh and saltwater.  In each one, he fishes with an expert guide, offering plenty of on-the-water action, plus information through tips and graphics to help you fish that area too.  He opened the show’s season with stripers and false albacore off Cuttyhunk, Massachusetts with Capt. Bruce Borgess.
