Fishing company named after his father, grandfather and four sons

The new paint job on the boat Wedgeport fisherman Jeff Boudreau bought last year is snagging lots of interest.

Knot Too Shore is wearing a toothy shark grin across her bow that can’t help but be noticed and it’s the perfect fit for Boudreau’s boat.

His fishing company is called JAW’S Fisheries & Sons, an acronym for the first letter of his name, his father Alfred and grandfather Wallace. The S stands for his four sons, Hogan (12), Hudson (10), Henry (five) and Houston (two-and-a-half).

“They love sharks. That’s how I picked our company’s name,” he said.

Leigh Corporon from Plymouth is the artist behind the bow art. Boudreau asked him paint a World War Two shark on the boat and that’s what he came up with. 

Boudreau has been fishing 20 years, five years on his own.

He says the shark mouth on his vessel is catching lots of attention

“It’s only been on two days and people have been talking about it a lot.”
