Reel Grit Sportfishing

Reel Grit Sportfishing is your go to charter for both families and first time fishermen as well as novice anglers alike. With over 20 years of experience fishing Cape Cod Bay’s waters, Captain Scott Graf guarantees a good time for all onboard. As a teacher during the school year, Capt. Scott is ready and willing to teach both new and young anglers on board.

The Reel Grit is a 38’ custom built Young Brothers boat that was restored in 2016. She is equipped with a 500 HP Diesel engine to allow for a comfortable 14-15 knots cruising speed. With an ample amount of cabin space out of the elements, all customers will be comfortable no matter what the weather conditions are. The Reel Grit is fully equipped with all up-to-date electronics as well as bunks down below and a clean head (toilet).

During the height of the season, most trips are targeting Striped Bass and Bluefish but there are a number of other species you can target both on the shoulder seasons as well as during the summer. Being a centrally located harbor on Cape Cod Bay, it is usually not more than a 30-minute ride to the fishing grounds for our Bass and Bluefish trips. You can also stay inshore and target bottom species such as Flounder, Tautog and Black Seabass.

You can count on a clean vessel that is family friendly. All fishing equipment, as well as your licenses are included in the price.

Let the Captain and crew of the Reel Grit Sportfishing help make your next trip out on Cape Cod Bay a memorable one!

    This half day trip will focus on catching some of the best eating fish in these waters, such as Flounder, Black Seabass, and occasional Tautog. This is a great trip to fill the freezer with great eating fish. Due to high bag limits on most of these fish it is not uncommon to go home with full bags of meat. Targeting these fish is best from early May until mid June as the water is cooler and fishing tends to be better.

The crew is flexible with what you may be looking for and can customize it to your crew!

Member since March 2021
Captain Scott Graf was born and raised on Cape Cod and began fishing at a young age. His summers were spent working as a mate on numerous charter and party boats across the Cape. At 19 he got his Captain license and began running boats each summer. Six years ago he purchased his own boat and now runs his own charter business. When not running charters, you'll be sure to find Scott spending time with his family on the boat and taking his son out fishing. During the winter months, Scott is a school teacher in town and thoroughly enjoys having family and kids on board. There is nothing better than teaching someone to fish and see the enjoyment of them succeed!
