You know a place has good angling when it’s got a fish in the name, and Cape Cod is no exception. Cape Cod fishing charters have centuries of tradition to draw on and plenty of big fish to use it on. From the cape’s synonymous canal and bay to the southern Massachusetts sounds, all the way out to the heart of the Atlantic, there’s something for all kinds of anglers. 
 
Hit the shallow inshore waters and get your hands on tasty Tautog, Seabass, Flounder, and Porgy. Meanwhile, the even more delicious Haddock, Pollock, and Atlantic Mackerel come right up to the reefs and wrecks nearshore, with monster Striped Bass adding to the entertainment. The list goes on, with Tuna in abundance offshore, along with more Shark species than you could shake your rod at!
 
With so many fishing opportunities, it’s no wonder that Cape Cod fishing charters offer a range of trips suited to your needs. Bring the family aboard a trip as short as two hours to test the waters, with four and six-hour trips commonplace, too. A full day trip will give you a better chance of filling the boat, while spending up to 16 hours on the water is plenty of time to reach the big game creatures. 
 
Cape Cod revolves around fishing, so you’ll have no trouble finding a charter. Hit the canal out of Bourne and Sandwich, with Barnstable offering great access to the Cape Cod Bay. In the south of the cape, Falmouth and Harwich are your best bet to get you to the productive sounds. Meanwhile, a trip out of Chatham and Truro will give you the shortest run to the deep waters. 
 

Rules & Regulations

The good news about fishing aboard a charter in Cape Cod is that your fishing license is covered. However, there are different seasons and limits when it comes to what you can catch, and where. Head out with a professional captain and they’ll make sure that you stay on the right side of the law.

January

If you want the wild beauty of Cape Cod all to yourself, January could be the time for you. A lot of businesses close over the winter, but you can find some serious deals if you don't mind the cold.

February

You'll be hard-pressed to find a fishing charter in February, but there are still plenty of fish biting if you find a guide. Go after Cod and Pollock and land yourself a warming treat to take home.

March

Cape Cod starts to emerge from its winter hibernation in March. Shops get ready for the season, locals return from their holidays, and anglers head out in search of some delicious creatures.

April

Many Cape Cod fishing charters open their hatches for business in April. Head out early before the summer rush, and you'll have all the Cod, Haddock, Flounder, and Tautog grounds almost to yourself.

May

May is a great time to visit Cape Cod. The sun is shining and the first wave of Cow Stripers come crashing into town. Black Seabass also show up towards the end of the month, giving you plenty to target.

June

Bluefish, Striped Bass, and Summer Flounder are all at their best in June, making it a great time to fish the shallows. It's also one of the best times of year for Scup, if they're a personal favorite of yours.

July

Cape Cod's tourist season is in full swing by July, making reservations necessary for charters and accommodation. You don't need to worry about restaurants though – just head out and catch your dinner.

August

The Bluefin action has been building up for a couple of months, but it really comes into its own in August. Add that to great Shark fishing and the chance of an offshore adventure, and you won't know where to go!

September

September yields some of the best catches for Bluefin Tuna, Stripers, and Sharks – Cape Cod's top three targets. Whichever of these incredible game fish you're after, you'll end the day exhausted and satisfied.

October

October is the big sendoff for the charter season in Cape Cod, and what a sendoff it is! Fish fill every depth of water and are feeding furiously before they move on out of town for winter.

November

Most of the tourists have moved on by November, and the charter scene is winding up for the year. A few Cod charters do run through the winter, though, if you don't mind the cold.

December

You're best off sticking to the bigger towns where the shops stay open in December. If wild seascapes are your thing, though, you won't lack for artistic inspiration to see out the year in style.

Try to book with Capt. Eric Newhouse if you can. Not saying other charter captains are worse, but this was my only experience with charter boat fishing..and it was excellent. Used to do drift boat fishing in the past...but if you are looking for a good chance to land a fish, charter is the way to go and if you get a small group, the cost is worth it.

Capt Bob and Jared were terrific. I caught an amazing striper...made my day! My 15yr old son was with me too, he had a blast! Fishing cape cod bay is a beautiful spot. Lots to do in town of Dennis (beautiful beaches too) before or after the charter...spend the whole day in that part of the cape! Stoddy

Although the weather beat us up quite a bit the fishing was worth it! Captain John was very professional and knowledgeable. He put our safety and comfort as priority. The Kate Jim was patient as well as knowledgeable for this first time striper angler. I had a ball fishing with these guys! You will too if you book with the Grey Dolphin Sportsfishing Charter. The marina was easily located and there was ample parking.

We had the BEST experience with Capt Sebas and first mate Travis. We brought our kids (6/7) with us so it was no easy task for them! Not only did we catch fish we got to learn so much about their trade and different species of fish! Our son walked away with a new found passion and dream career! Couldn’t recommend these guys enough!

Ralph is a. Very experienced waterman. We had a blast with him! He got us on some 15 lb blue fish right away. We tanked them ,and moved on too fish for giant tuna we set up on a cool drift and locked up on a 600 plus tuna and had a second line sucked off . We then hooked a shark before ending the day caching 6 more 15 lb blue fish. He’s a very respectful , Knowledgeable and humorous waterman . We loved our Experience and we’ll do it again for sure

I have been on several deep sea fishing trips, but have to say this was the best. Capt Doug & First Mate Kaylee were awesome very interactive with us. The fishing was some of the best we have experienced catching a dozen blue fish. Kaylee was very knowledgeable and we had a great time with her. I would highly recommend a trip on the Jennifer Ann with this crew and would definitely come back.

Great trip with captain Doug. He was very helpful explaining how we were going to fish and what to expect. One person on our trip had never been on a boat and never held a rod. Doug was a great mentor for him. Definitely will do another trip with him next year

Great time. Tyler was there on time and knew his profession well. We on the fish in the first hour. All of us brought in beautiful strippers and blues all day long. So much that we gave away some of the blues to Tuna fishers for bait. And we had to throw back a huge stripper, well over the keeper size. Tyler even had to fish out my hat for me. Good time and a great guy.

My family of 5 had a great Sunday afternoon of fishing with Captain Wayne and Trevor. We immediately hooked into some Bluefish once we got on site and then got lucky enough to stay on the action for ~2hs. Trevor kept the gear ready and Captain Wayne kept us on the fish. We hooked up on 12, pulled in 6, and kept 5. Just really a great day on the water followed up with 10 fillets of smoked Bluefish. Would recommend to everybody.
