With a wide beam and plenty of deck space, it can comfortably accommodate up to six anglers. Other features include outriggers and live bait tank, as well as a Kenwood stereo and Bose speakers to maximize your enjoyment. 

Pythias Sportfishing specialize in many techniques from light and heavy tackle, to drift and kite fishing.

Captain Damon Burden discovered his passion for fishing at a very young age, right here on Cape Cod. By the time he was 16 years old, he knew that he wanted to spend his life fishing, and so began his career as a mate for some of the best captains in the area. He has fished in many locations targeting many different species, but especially loves to follow migratory patterns of the Striped Bass and Bluefish, as well as chasing down Seabass and Fluke. Capt Damon is an Atlantic Captain's Academy graduate and has all the necessary safety training required. Capt Damon is now living his dream of running a charter business, and looks forward to putting you on fish!
