Went fishing on Tuesday, September 5, 2017

We booked a half day trip. We met the crew at the dock and set out. We heard stories about past trips, what other charters had caught in the area, and what to expect. It was a windy day and we still caught 5 fish. My dad caught the second biggest of the season. It was a great experience. We will definitely be doing it again next time we in the cape.

The fishing was disappointing- five small bass between the three of us- but this was better than the last couple of years on our annual day fishing in Cape Cod bay in august, while consistent with   a general decline in fish stocks, probably courtesy seals and the sharks that accompany them. The company did, however more than make up for the lack of fish and we all enjoyed the trip.

This was my first sea fishing charter (I am very familiar with Great Lakes king salmon fishing).  First time for the others on this trip as well.  Due to weather, this was a reschedule from an earlier booking, and the weather looked less than promising today as well.  We decided that fortune and fishing favor the bold, so we went.  We may have started slow, but Captain Mike, Rick, and Trooper were able to make some adjustments and put us squarely on some beautiful stripers.  We hit our limiting well within our allotted time.

The captain and crew were personable and knowledgeable, and were able to sufficiently instruct us in the differences between striper fishing on Cape Cod Bay and king salmon fishing on Lake Ontario, saving us the embarrassment of returning empty handed.  Further, they were generous with their knowledge, and conversation was easy and relaxed, and ranged into many topics.

I would recommend this charter to anyone wishing to enjoy a day of fishing, as it was everything a day of fishing should be.

Had a great day on the Annie B!  Limited out on Stripers and had fun along the way.  Crew made sure we caught fish as they are very familiar with local waters.

Never changed bait, captain was rude to the first mate who was the only redeeming part of he whole trip. Didn’t catch a single fish and only set up two rods for 6 people. Then at the end told us we were short on tip…

I’m sorry Mr. Cowan didn’t enjoy his trip. We do everything in our power to get fish and make the trip a pleasant experience. He originally booked a trip for later in the week then called mid-morning to ask if we could go out around noon. The weather wasn’t great but I agreed. My mates change the bait every time they need to. We use a couple different baits and I leave it up to the mate to make the choice. As for being rude, I’m not sure but maybe cause I have to raise my voice to be heard over the engine noise and wind. We only set up 2 rods as that was the style of fishing we were doing and could not put out the outriggers due to a myriad of lobster pots in the area. The seas were rough and it was difficult to stay away from the pots. We did a different style of fishing and that was unsuccessful also. There were a couple other charter boats in the area and they didn’t do well either. As for the tip, less than 10% is not good for a mate who worked hard and “who was the only redeeming part of the whole trip.”  Again, I wish the trip had been more successful. It is called “fishing’ and not “catching.”

Great time had by my entire family.  We caught our limit of Striped Bass and had a fantastic time.  The crew was extremely knowledgeable and friendly.

WOW… What a day we had on the Annie B. Our family was staying in Hyannisport and this fishing adventure is definitely the most memorable part of our vacation. The crew was better than awesome, entertaining and most importantly they know where to find them BIG fishies. We caught our limit of beautiful Keepers and lots of others who we kissed and through back to catch next year.  PS: The boy slept like logs after all the activity…....PK

I’ll take an older boat with equally weathered crew over the shiny new charter boat every day.  I felt a bit like Hooper setting foot on the Orca, but Captain Mike and crew put us right on the fish as I knew they would.  That’s decades of experience and time on the water.  Definitely recommend a trip on the Annie B for anyone looking for a nice fishing trip on Cape Cod Bay.
