Come and fish with Salt Reaper Charters! Whether it’s your first time fishing, you’re looking to fill the freezer or trying to catch the fish of a life time - Salt Reaper Charters has you covered. With a vast knowledge of Cape Cod waters, the ability to switch ports and modern fishing techniques, this isn’t your grandfathers charter. They won’t disappoint and will put you on the fish!

They’ll take you out on a 25’ Dusky center console. It was built in 1990, however it was restored recently in 2014. The 300 HP Yamaha engine is a powerful machine that can whisk you around the cape at up to 40 knots. It’s got all you need for a successful fishing trip on board including fish finder technology and outriggers.

Out on Cape Cod there’s an excellent range of potential saltwater catches. The stocks of Striped Bass, Bluefish, Bonito, Flounder, King Mackerel, Little Tunny, Shark and Bluefin are plentiful and you’re sure to get lucky out on the water with Salt Reaper Charters. They use Penn rods and Shimano reels to undertake a variety of techniques such as bottom fishing, trolling, spinning, jigging, and popping. If you want to do some fly fishing then you should take your own gear (only up to 2 people).

Depending on what you’re targeting live bait will be used which will be collected during your trip if it’s required. If you’re not confident about cleaning your catch then it is provided on a tip basis. As well as this your fishing license is covered. Water is provided for you so take along any other drinks you would like. Also take some snacks, sunglasses, sunscreen, and a hat.

You need not look far from these guys if you’re in the Cape Cod area. They have all the gear, knowledge, and experience to make your trip a truly enchanting one.
