Grey Dolphin Sportfishing Charters

Massachusetts Striper fishing never looked so good than with Grey Dolphin Sportfishing Charters! Join Captain John Ciccariello and his first mate Caleb Tolley on their angling adventures in Cape Cod Bay and find out just how exciting inshore fishing can be.

Your expedition will begin on a 31’ Downeast boat prepped and ready to accommodate up to 6 persons and take them to the red-hot bite for the day. She’s outfitted with a 370 HP Cummins Diesel engine that makes he reliable and safe in different weather conditions. On the boat, you’ll find rods, reels, and tackle you need on the trip, so you don’t have to lug around your own gear. If you’d like to fly fish, you can do so, and up to 3 flyrodders can fish at the same time, as long as you bring your own gear.

The boat also has a private toilet, for your comfort, and is decked out with excellent navigational and fish finding equipment, which allows you to be on the fish within 30 minutes. If you hook a colossal Striper, you’ll have a fighting chair to help you reel it in. After you come back to land, Capt. John and his first mate Jim will gladly clean and fillet your catch for you.

You have plenty of trips to choose from, depending on how much time you want to spend on the water and chase after Striped Bass, the superstar of the local waters. These fish are known for giving a proper fight and testing both your line and skills, so good fun while battling them is guaranteed.

Every step of the way, you will have a trusty first mate Jim by your side. He’s always at your disposal and will gladly help you with whatever you might need. Trick and tips for catching the biggest fish, as well as advice and stories, is something you can always count on when Jim is on board.

The captain and his first mate love having kids on the boat, so feel free to bring them fishing with you, they’ll have a great time too. Grey Dolphin Sportfishing Charters welcomes you aboard to explore the abundance of Cape Cod Bay!
