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

Janine B Sportfishing, JenniferAnn Sportfishing Charters, and Black Seabass Fishing Buzzards Bay all received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Cape Cod.

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

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.

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.

My son and I have amazing time with captain Doug and Bill. They were very professional but fun and kept the conversation going. My son caught a 25+ lb striper which is the biggest fish I have seen. They encouraged my son the entire time he was feeling the fish in. We would definitely recommend and will be booking agin in the future!!!!

I got this trip for my husband and 2 Grown sons…it was an “epic” fishing trip to quote my son. Captain Matt was focused on them having the best experience ever, and he did not disappoint! They caught at least 25 stripers (“couldn’t keep them off the hook”) and a couple of blues. They brought some of their catch home (too much to bring entire catch home) and we cooked them up at night for the best fish dinner ever. Highly recommend!

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

Captain Ralph is the best captain! He was easy to work with and made our first fishing trip the most amazing experience. He was great with my kids and we all had the best time. We would 100% recommend taking a fishing charter with captain Ralph and the Odysea.

This fishing trip ended too soon. Skip is a fish whisperer. He designed our trip based on what fish we wanted to catch. He found the spots we needed to maximize our catch. I have already scheduled a second trip for the end of July.There are other fishing charter companies but none can provide the fishing experience that Skip can provide.
