Deep Sea Fishing in Cape Cod

Deep sea fishing in Cape Cod is bucket list material. Surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean to the east, Cape Cod Bay to the north, Buzzards Bay to the west, and Nantucket Sound to the south, this gem guarantees the most exciting rod-bending action. Cape Cod's unique location makes it impossible for you to end up empty-handed. And if you need some local insight, Cape Cod deep sea fishing charters will come to the rescue.

When deep sea fishing in Cape Cod, do as the locals do – go after Cod. They're so beloved here that even the name of the place means "a great store of Codfish." Their cousins, Pollock and Haddock, are equally popular. Once you warm up with them, move onto the real giants. From Tuna to Shark, Cape Cod has a lot to offer to all bluewater enthusiasts.

You can wet your line in these prolific waters throughout the entire year. However, some species follow a certain season.Bluefin Tuna, for example, love winter, and Yellowfin Tuna prefer summer. Cod are available year-round, while Pollock thrive in May and October. All in all, if you try Cape Cod for deep sea fishing anywhere between May and November, you'll hit the jackpot.

Depending on what fish you've set your mind on, you'll need at least a full day trip. If you want to come out glorious after a Tuna pursuit, get ready for an extended full day trip. You'll have more time to try out different fishing techniques like trolling, chumming, and chunking. And, you'll have the chance to cross paths with other monsters as well.

As for the equipment and fishing spots, if you hire a certified charter operator, you won't have to worry about anything. Check out some of the best departure points like Barnstable, Dennis, Orleans, Harwich, and Falmouth for the finest charter service. In case you're heading out offshore on your own, make sure to purchase a fishing license in advance.

What anglers said about Deep Sea Fishing in Cape Cod

As usual. Follow the birds and the tide. We had a great time, fished near the east end of the canal and out around Race Point. Full day of fishing, worth every minute.

Definitely go with St. Pete charters and pay attention to the gear list and directions with regard to sun screen etc. This will make things much more fun for you. Captain Doug will ensure you have a great time!!!

After heavy rains in the area, feedings may take a day or two to get back to normal.

Consider coming in May or June when the water is cooler and fish are reportedly bigger.

It’s hit or miss between stripers and blues this time of year. You can catch numbers of one species one week and few of the other, and then the next week it can switch. Sometimes you can find both species around and willing to bite. Depends on water temps and bait availability.

Highly recommend. My guests were one man and three women who fish freshwater periodically in NC. One hadn’t fished at all in 30 years. Everyone caught fish and had a blast!

I would recommend Keepin' It Reel Charters and Captain Timmy. There may be other great companies there but my experience with Keepin' It Real Charters and Captain Timmy is the best I have ever had.

It's windy out there so dress appropriately. Motion sickness prevention could be useful if you have minimal experience on a boat in big water.

Finishing was great in Sandwich! We caught 10 stripped bass, 3 of which were large enough to take home and eat. Would highly recommend coming to Sandwich to fish at this time if you are finishing for stripped bass.
