FAQs about Fishing Charters in Cape Cod Bay

According to customer reviews, Janine B Sportfishing, JenniferAnn Sportfishing Charters, and Salt Reaper Charters are some of the most popular fishing charters in Cape Cod Bay. Full list of top fishing charters in Cape Cod Bay.

Janine B Sportfishing, JenniferAnn Sportfishing Charters, and Salt Reaper Charters all received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Cape Cod Bay.

The most popular fish species you can target are Striped Bass, Bluefish, and Bluefin Tuna. Top fishing techniques include trolling, light tackle, and jigging. Inshore fishing, nearshore fishing, and offshore fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

Hopping aboard a Cape Cod Bay fishing charter allows you experience the best of what the area has to offer. You’ll take in the quaint surroundings while landing some of the East Coast’s most covetable fish. And although you may only think of Cape Cod Bay as a summertime destination, the fishing here can be great year-round.

The number one target in Cape Cod Bay has to be Striped Bass, and the summertime is when to catch ‘em. While exploring the inshore waters you can also target Bluefish, Flounder, Scup, Tautog, and Black Seabass. Nearshore, expect to find covetable Atlantic Mackerel and delicious Cod, Haddock, and Pollock.

One of the best things about fishing Cape Cod Bay is its proximity to productive honey holes grounds. 2–3 hour trips are ideal for teaching the kids how to fish, while a half day trip can easily put you on some Stripers and Bluefish. Targeting Cod and Haddock will require some extra preparation and a lot more time on the water. Opt for a full day or, better yet, an extended full day trip.

The hooked-shape peninsula that makes up the Cape Cod Bay is dotted with colorful towns and plenty of marinas. Popular departure points for local fishing charters include Dennis, Orleans, Truro, Provincetown, and Sandwich.
 

Rules & Regulations

If you’re saltwater fishing aboard a Cape Cod fishing charter, there’s no need to worry about fishing licenses. To ensure you’re respecting seasonality and bagging limits, it’s best to head out with an experienced captain.

January

Things are noticeably more quiet on the Cape, but there’s still fishing fun to be had. Cod and Haddock like the cold and you can even do some ice fishing for Trout in one of the nearby ponds.

February

Cod and Haddock fishing remains the top activity for wintertime visitors. Finding a fishing charter may be more difficult than usual, however, so be sure to do your research beforehand.

March

Luckily, winter doesn’t last for too long on the Cape. Shops start to open up again in preparation for high season. Best of all, the waters start to warm up and you can start to anticipate the arrival of the Stripers.

April

What a great time to be on the Cape! You’ll have the Cod, Haddock, Flounder, and Tautog-filled waters all to yourself before the spring crowds start to descend.

May

The waters are nice and warm (for the fish) and that means only one thing – massive Striped Bass! And if you came in the hope of landing a fish for dinner, Black Seabass make for a delicious treat. 

June

It’s high fishing season on the Cape and all of your inshore favorites are coming out to play. Striped Bass, Flounder, Black Seabass, and Scup make for a mix of challenging and tasty targets.

July

This is the time when the area really shines. There are summer vacationers left, right, and center, and plenty of fun to be had. Inshore anglers will have their hands full with Stripers, Flounder, and Seabass.

August

The inshore fun continues with the addition of Bluefish! Make sure to book your charters and accommodation early to avoid disappointment – we’re still in high tourist season!

September

Big game anglers will head offshore for Tuna and Sharks, but there’s still plenty of great action in the bay too! Tautog, Flounder, Bluefish, and the tail-end of Striper season make for thrilling targets.

October

Just when you thought the action was over, the fish surprise you! Inshore, you’ll catch Bluefish, Scup, and the odd Striper. Meanwhile, Pollock, Cod, and Haddock start making moves nearshore.

November

Winter fishing on the Cape is not for the faint of heart, but it’s certainly rewarding. There are still a few charters operating and they may be willing to take you out in search of Cod and Haddock.

December

If you like peace and quiet, December on Cape Cod Bay might be just the thing for you. Stay in one of the area’s larger towns and, who knows? Maybe there’s a captain who’s in the mood for some Cod and Haddock.

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.

Captain Doug Brown and the crew Kenny are super professional. My wife and I got six around 30 inches long bass, and several that were released because of their small sizes. Our dogs behaved not very friendly but Doug and Kenny were not bothered at all. My two little kids also love this fishing trip. Strongly recommended

6 people on the trip, plenty of room for everyone. We all had a ton of fun, caught 5 keeper striper and 3 keeper bluefish as well as a bunch of smaller striper. Everyone had a great time and had a lot of fun talking with the crew. If we come back to fish for striper or bluefish again we will definitely be coming back to captain doug!

Couldn't have had a better day and experience. All five of us had a ball (and each caught a fish -- and more for some of us). Jeff and Derek were the best of captains and mates and made the day even more enjoyable. Recommend this charter highly.
