Your Captain, Joe Francis is a native Cape Codder. Joe takes great pride in the quality of your charter experience. Joe has one boat, the Nauset. And you may be assured that only Joe, will Captain every trip that is booked. He grew up helping his dad work the family’s oyster grant. As a teenager, Joe bought his first commercial boat and plied the waters of Cape Cod bay clamming. After serving our country proudly in the Navy, Joe returned to commercial fishing.
The Nauset is a new 27 foot Albemarle Sportfisherman. Families appreciate the below deck private walk in bathroom. Older folks are restful seated in the fully enclosed weatherproof salon.These important features make the Nauset the most comfortable charter boat departing from the Pamet Harbor, Truro. Fishermen have 180 degrees of deck space to fly fish, light tackle cast or jig.
We woke up this morning to a refreshing Northernly breeze. Great sleeping weather and perfect for bonfires on the beach without bug spray. But it’s also the type of wind that causes seasickness. The waves tend to be bigger and the swells more frequent. The sporty seas can also bring the Striped Bass on the feed. They like fast white capped water and often feed on the surface, like today. We had schools of Bass breaking around the boat. They were easy targets for Lil-Docs and Pencil Poppers, cast from the stern. Mike brought his girlfriend Nicole, his daughter Kayla and her boyfriend Pat out on the Nauset. The seasickness took over Kayla about an hour into the trip. Here are some “just in case” tips if your planning a trip. Pack some ginger ale and saltines. Also, don’t have a big greasy meal beforehand but you should definitely eat something, and that doesn’t mean just coffee! My go-to breakfast has always been peanut butter on toast. Cereal is good too. If you do feel queasy onboard, stare at the horizon , breathe more deeply and nibble on saltines and sip ginger ale to get your mind off the situation. So, who do you think caught the biggest of many fish caught this morning? Kayla did, of course! Tight lines! Hope we see you out there.
