Four C's Fishing Charters

Visit the waters off the coast of Massachusetts with Four C’s Fishing Charters and get ready for a great time! Captain Bobby Cavender will take you to some of the best fishing spots in the area. He’s been fishing these waters for a long time, and he’ll make sure you have a good time reeling in the Atlantic monsters.

Come aboard Capt. Bobby’s 35’ RP Willis Beal downeast boat, powered by a 465 HP Yanmar engine. Restored in 2021, it’s the perfect vessel to take out for a day of fishing fun with friends and family. There are navigational electronics to help put you on the fish, and there’s a toilet and a bed for your convenience. It can accommodate up to 6 people.

Depending on the type of trip you choose to go on, you can expect to come across a wide variety of species. The waters out of Gloucester are home to Haddock, Cod, Pollock, Bass, Flounder, Tuna, and different Shark varieties. No matter your skills and experience, there’s something for everyone here!

Capt. Bobby will make sure to have all the fishing equipment you’ll need ready for you on board. You’ll get live bait and a range of artificial lures to get the most out of your fishing adventure. At the end of the day, the crew will clean and fillet your catch, so you can look forward to having a delicious meal with the family once you’re back home.

Speaking of family, if you want to turn this into a great trip with the little ones, feel free to do so. Kids are welcome to come on board, and this is a great opportunity to make some nice memories with them. If you’re a Medal of Honor recipient, Capt. Bobby invites you to come fishing with him free of charge. It’s his way to show appreciation so feel free to send him a message for more details. Also, Veterans get 35% off, and First Responders 25% off.

Just make sure to bring some food and drinks, and join Four C’s Fishing Charters for a Massachusetts fishing adventure you won’t forget!

I lobstered with my father for years out of Gloucester. I then traveled the world in the military. Wound up back in Gloucester and immediately just had to fish. I was changed forever when I caught my first Bluefin Tuna and I feel it is something everyone should have the chance to experience.
