Capt Joe and mate Joe were helpful and made sure we were catching as much as possible. He knows the hot spots and guided us amateurs. My teenage and college aged kids had an awesome time and are tired physically because they caught so many strypers. Thank you Capt Joe and Joe for a “Stryper” of a time!

This was a well prepared trip; Captain does not waste time. He maximized our time allowed for fishing. He wasted no time getting to the spot and put us on the fish every time he stopped. He know his trade very well. The first mate was first rate. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Would use him again any day. One of the greatest days fishing with a charter service. Thank you Capt. Joe. God Bless!!!

Boston Fish Tales….......ROCK!!!

We had a great time out with Captain Joe D’Orsi,  They provided everything you will need to have a great fishing trip,  just bring a sandwich and a drink and hold on to your rods.  We were on the fish in about 15 minutes from the dock and the bite was on the whole trip.  We caught mostly Stripers and a few Blue fish,  all great fights, especially the Blues.  Already booked my first trip of the year and I can’t wait to be back on the boat.

See you soon Captain!!!
