Your Captain, Joe Francis is a native Cape Codder. 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 for cod and flounder. After 40 years of commercial fishing, Joe has developed a keen 6th sense of where the fish might be. This experience sets him apart from most other charter captains.
