Discover what tasty fish is biting in the community of Falmouth Massachusetts. There Cape Classic Charters will provide you with a unique experience with their golden-oldy boat with modern commodities. Captain Greg Penta will be your guide and he’ll do his best to share his 30 years of experience, and help you bag some fish. 

The charter gets its vintage feel from its Mackenzie Cuttyhunk Bass Boat (classic) model from 1967, which was restored in 2014. The engine is modern, though, and it’s Marine Power model with the maximum cruising speed of 20 knots. The boat is 26 feet long and can accommodate up to 6 guests per trip. For your better fishing experience, there’s fishfinding equipment on board.

The charter covers nearshore and offshore locations with wreck hotspots. Anglers may choose to go after their catch with trolling,  drift fishing, bottom, and deep-sea fishing, but the captain’s specialty is jigging in the area Martha’s Vineyard. With varying availability, you can encounter Bass, Bluefish, and Bonito all year round. However, if you are interested in the delicious Seabass, summer is your season.

Families with children are welcome. For your additional comfort during your fishing experience, there’s a toilet and an ice-box available. When it comes to necessary fishing equipment and lures, you don’t need to worry as everything will be ready for you. Furthermore, the charter covers your Massachusetts fishing license. Don’t forget to bring your refreshments and snacks!

    During our 5 hour trip, we will travel to the east or west end of Martha's Vineyard, depending on whether your crew wants to target jumbo sized Black Sea Bass (which also make excellent table fare), or fierce fighting Bluefish (and occasionally Bonito). The scenic ride to the fishing grounds is typically an hour each way, which leaves three hours of solid fishing time. At your request, Captain will clean and fillet your fish for dinner!

    This 2 hour trip is great for families who wish to get onto the water for a couple hours to catch some fish with their kids. The shorter duration is sure to provide plenty of action for kids and adults.
