Rates and Dates...
Dates available from MAY 1st to NOVEMBER 1st!
We will do our best to accommodate you should your trip need to be rescheduled due to inclement weather.
A $100 deposit for half-day trips and $200 deposit for full-day trips is required to secure your reservation, which is refundable if your trip is cancelled due to weather or if you decide to cancel with at least 30 days notice. It is up to the Captain to decide when your trip is cancelled due to weather. Wind speed and direction is the largest determining factor if your trip is to be cancelled, we do go out in the rain! An additional deposit is required when reserving more than one boat.
- Combination trips consist of TUNA fishing and STRIPED BASS fishing, wow!
- More than 6 people? No problem! We have three boats so we can take out multiple groups of 6. Great for reunions and other celebrations!

Our Captains will be happy to fillet your fish at the end of your striped bass or tuna trip. Tips appreciated. (You are welcome to keep the racks if you would like, however we do not chop up racks due to the wear and tear it puts on our fillet knifes.)
** We do have a limited number of sets of rain gear available. If the weather looks wet and you have forgotten your coat, no problem! Just ask and we will bring along a set for you.

Where We Fish...^
The majority of our trips go out of
Pamet Harbor, Truro, conveniently located between Provincetown and Wellfleet that offers quick access to the best fishing grounds of outer Cape Cod.
Depending on the current fishing conditions, we may also depart from other boat launches on Cape Cod including Orleans. Your departure location will be confirmed the day before your trip.
Field & Stream magazine notes that 'Cape Cod has become what many saltwater anglers consider the premier striped bass fishing destination in the world' and we certainly agree!
What We Catch and How...^
- Stripers - late May through September
- Blues - mid June through August
- Bluefin Tuna - June through October *late Summer and Fall - peak season
- Black Sea Bass/Scup - May - early June, other dates by request if available; Recreational Black Sea Bass season is Saturday, May 21st, 2016 through August 31st

Captain Bobby has an extensive assortment of rods, reels, and tackle equipment, he even makes his own jigs to get just the right size, shape, and color. We are also a member of the RONZ Pro Staff! Casting RONZ soft baits can be just the right trick for large bass and bluefin tuna.
Van Staal is our gear of choice as they deliver a superior cast, high durability and excellent fight. We also have a selection of jigging rods and reels for those rare occasions during the summer dog days when wire is the key. We welcome all levels of anglers and are more than happy to teach new comers!
