Salt Shaker Charters is based in Dennis, Massachusetts, giving them amazing access to the very center of Cape Cod. This company is operated by Captain Dan Hannon – an avid angler and knowledgeable guide.

With over 30 years experience fishing the local waters, Captain Dan will guide you through the area’s most important fishing areas and introduce you to the most effective techniques on a family friendly fishing experience.

The Salt Shaker is a 36 ft H&H Marine boat that is powered by a 500 HP Cummins engine. This spacious vessel gives a comfortable ride, and its private restroom is a particular bonus. Fitted with a full packet of electronics and safety equipment, the boat also features a fighting chair and outriggers should you decide to go after big game.

While Captain Dan primarily fishes the Cape for Striped Bass and Bluefish, he can also take you further offshore in search of Bluefin Tuna and Sharks. Both light and heavy tackle are provided on board, and you can put a variety of techniques into practice, including trolling, jigging, and popping.

All tackle you will need on your trip is provided, but please remember to bring suitable clothing as well as any snacks and drinks you might like on your fishing adventure.
