Bluefin Charters Sportfishing Cape Cod Trips and Rates

A couple of nice black sea bass caught aboard the Bluefin!Starting in late May, Bluefin Charters starts fishing the waters off Cape Cod's south side, Nantucket Sound, Martha's Vineyard, Vineyard Sound, and beyond for bottom fish (black sea bass and scup, or fluke), as well as striped bass and bluefish. Towards mid July, the false albacore and bonito show up to add to the excitement. Mid July also brings on the shark fishing, and the small bluefin and yellowfin bite gets better south of the Vineyard. Later in the season, the fish get bigger. Monster striped bass are taken in the fall, and the bluefin tuna bite is at its best.

Bluefin Charters runs a variety of trips from mid May, through October. The trips and rates are listed below. Please remember that a $100.00 deposit ($200.00 for offshore trips) is required to reserve your date. Any cancelations less than two weeks prior to your reservation will result in a forfeiture of your deposit. Only the captain can cancel due to weather on the morning of the trip. If your trip is canceled, all efforts will be made to reschedule. If that is not possible, your deposit will be refunded.

Per USCG regulations, no non-prescription drugs allowed onboard, and no hard liquor. Non-marking deck shoes (sneakers) are must!

All tackle and gear is provided. Penn reels and custom rods insure that your fishing experience is as good as it can be. Bring sun block, sun glasses, food and drink, plus a cooler for your catch. All fish belong to the charter, except giant bluefin tuna. Federal regulations require a federal permit to possess giant bluefin tuna.
