Cape Cod Fishing
with Capeshores Charters
Specializing in light tackle fishing aboard the NEW 34' "Marilyn S"
Capeshores Charters allows me to share with you the joy I've
experienced fishing on Cape Cod. Having grown up on the Cape, it is easy to show
you the amazing fishing opportunities we have on this beautiful peninsula.
Reliving the fun of my boyhood exhilaration through you, and your family's eyes
as you reel in your catches, makes my job one of the best occupations a guy could
ever have. I have come to savor the time spent with a fish on the end of your rod
equally as much as I would a fish on my own.
I try to persuade my customers to enjoy that
experience by using light fishing tackle to better feel the fight of the fish. Unlike
a trolling situation, my methods allow them to hold the rod and feel the fish bite.
I've learned that its not about getting them in quick so you can get another, having
fun and savoring the moment is more satisfying. It is more
expensive and takes more effort for me to use the lighter gear, but the return is
having my philosophy of more fun rub off on you — my customers. Our gear is in
good shape with no broken guides on the rods and reels that are working properly.
We use 15 pound test spinning rods and reels on all of our bass charters. Our
bluefin trips use Shimano Tiagra 50 wide trolling outfits and we carry Shimano
Trevala spinning and casting set ups for butterfly jigging techniques.
With all the guides and charter boats out there, why would you use my service,
how is Capeshores Charters different from the others? Location, location,
location ! We are on the outside elbow of Cape Cod, where the water temperatures
are cooler in late summer. Although we start later, we have bass through the
summer and into late October, when other warm water locations can only catch bluefish
or small bass. The
striped bass are right outside the harbor and the tuna grounds start a mere 3 miles
east ! The "Marilyn S" is a fast, great looking,
34 foot by 13 foot, wide and roomy boat, with an open cockpit so there is more
room to move around to play your fish. We are located at the Chatham Municipal
Fish Pier on Shore Road in Chatham. There is a beautiful new floating dock and
ramp to make boat access convenient. Free parking and rest rooms are a few yards
