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.
These young girls love to fish. Chloe, (almost 9) and Amelia, (almost 6) are the first ones in the fighting chair. They had such a memorable time last year that they both wrote about it as a part of their back to school assignment. Amelia even went as far as including her first charter aboard the Nauset as one of the 6 most memorable events of her life! Wow, did that ever put the pressure on us to catch Stripers. Last year Matt and Eva brought their family to the Cape later in August. By then the Bluefish have arrived in force. It’s nearly impossible to catch Striped Bass at that time. We only caught Blues and one short Striper. This year they are back to their typical July vacation, which is a part of Eva’s Bithday present. Maybe her birthday wish was for her girls to catch a boatload of Stripers, because we had great action from the jump. Soon the girls ran out of steam and Amelia fell asleep in her mom’s arms. But not before the gang had a spectacular morning, catching Stripers off Race Point , Provincetown.
