Embark on an unforgettable fishing expedition aboard the vessel “Showtime,” a pristine 26-foot Regulator. Departing from picturesque Sesuit Harbor in East Dennis, Massachusetts, our expert crew will guide you through the waters of Cape Cod Bay, renowned for its diverse marine life and exceptional fishing opportunities. Make your fishing dreams a reality with a perfect fishing experience. Book your adventure today and prepare for an amazing fishing excursion!

Safety is our top priority, and our crew ensures this safe experience with all the necessary and up-to-date safety equipment. Our smaller, yet more nimble profile allows for a much faster cruise and the ability to cover much more ground. Powered by the “bulletproof” twin Yamaha 225 horsepower engines, a typical cruising speed is around 25 knots. The boat is equipped with comfortable forward seating as well as a below-deck toilet and lots of dry storage. A drop-down isinglass enclosure allows for protection against the elements on our less-than-perfect weather days. This, combined with many other comforts, provides the perfect baseline for an unforgettable adventure!

We offer a wide variety of fishing opportunities to cater to every angler’s preferences and interests. Whether you are a first-timer or an avid angler, we have something for everyone! With primary target species including Flounder, Striped Bass, Bluefish, or the ever infamous Bluefin Tuna, the opportunity for the fish of a lifetime is endless! All gear and bait are provided for use during the trip free of charge. Our crew will also filet and bag any fish kept during the trip. These trips are set at a baseline, if more time is wanted during a trip and is available, an added $75 an hour is the standard fee. Additional hours are not a guarantee as we may have multiple trips in one day. The standard tip for the mate is a minimum of 15-20 percent of the trip. Feel free to reach out with any questions, this trip is very customizable to YOUR standards!

    These three-hour trips are geared toward families looking for an introductory trip to get a glimpse into the fishing world for the first time. While leaving less time to fish, it’s the perfect length for both children and first-timers alike as four plus hours may be too much for some. The vast majority of our fishing is done within 30 minutes of the dock, so this still leaves plenty of time for lines in the water!

Member since May 2024
Born and raised on Cape Cod, Captain Andrew Popovich has roughly a decade of experience fishing the pristine waters of Cape Cod Bay, primarily out of the beautiful Sesuit Harbor. Many of his earlier summers were spent as a deckhand on several boats, learning the basics as well as developing his own specific craft and skill set from quite a few of the local captains. More recent years have been spent commercially fishing and running trips with friends and family. Extremely successful past seasons led Captain Andrew to take night courses while finishing up school to obtain his USCG-certified Six-Pack captain's license. His prior knowledge combined with his youth and determination allow you to set sail with the “young guns” of the fleet and make memories that will last a lifetime. With many successful seasons under his belt, Captain Andrew feels more than prepared to offer captivating trips for many seasons to come!

With the Striper season now in full swing, we are seeing very steady fishing and lots of fish to take home! Todays afternoon crew absolutely crushed it, boating 4 keepers in the first half hour, and finding the last one shortly after. Throwing back keepers became the norm as fish continuted to come over the rail. Eventually finding some that were too big to keep, right around 38 inches, rounded off a fantastic day with Showtime Sportfishing. Book now and get in on the action!

Another day of stiff wind lead to the common question, “is it worth it?”. Come to find out, it was very much worth it. After a 25 minute ride through less than ideal conditions, we set up and quickly began marking fish. We fired the rods out and instantly started taking the extra large variety of Striped Bass 2 at a time. The constant action remained this way, with the common fish being between 36 and 38 inches, and the larger size being upwards of 45 and 46 inches, tipping the scale at 35-40lbs. Even the kids got in on the action, catching multiple 40+ inch fish on their own! Another legendary day in the books with many stories to bring home, as well as dinner after finding a few smaller fish. The big ones won’t be here forever! Book now and get in on the action before the big fish move on!

With yet another crew opting to hunt bigger game, we set out on the hunt for the larger variety of striped bass. We set out making a bit of a further run than usual, but it paid off bigtime. Within 30 minutes of setting up, we had a school of massive Striped Bass dialed in to the tee. The next three and a half hours were spent catching slob sized Stripers, landing 8 fish over 35 inches and 20lbs, 4 fish in the 40 inch range weighing roughly 25-30lbs, and 3 fish over 45 inches in the mid 30lb range. While these fish had to go back according to the slot size, we manged to grab a few fish for dinner before heading back to the dock. Truly a once in a lifetime trip with some of the best fishing I have personally seen in years. Book now for your shot at a trip like this one!
