Drifter

Drifter invites you to Massachusetts to have a fun fishing trip near or off the shore of Wellfleet. Together with Captain Patrick Ordung, you will explore the area’s nearshore and offshore waters as well as their lovely reefs and intriguing wrecks, all having plenty of fish on the offer. The captain will give you all the help you need for an enjoyable and successful trip, so pick a date and come aboard.

The boat you will be using is a 25’ Steiger Craft pilothouse. This comfy boat can easily accommodate up to 6 anglers and it is powered by a Volvo Penta diesel motor that can reach a maximum cruising speed of 35 knots. It uses all the modern GPS, fishfinder, as well as radio technology for safe and fast navigation, features an ice-box to store your drinks and fish, and has also got a livewell to provide you with live bait.

The species you can target include Black Seabass, Blue Shark, Haddock, Flounder, Striped Bass, and Bluefin Tuna. You will use both light and heavy tackle to catch them and you will do it by bottom and deep sea fishing, trolling, jigging, spinning, popping, as well as drift fishing. You’re free to either keep or release your catch as well as to bring kids on your trip.

Captain Patrick covers you for all the rods, reels, tackle, and bait, and he will also clean and fillet your charge at no extra charge. You’ll only have to bring some snacks, drinks, as well as licenses before you leave.

Spend a fine day on the water and have lots of fun fishing with Drifter!
