Here’s To A Fishy New Year!

Most people use this time of year for reflection, and certainly Joe and I aren’t any different. Last season was by far our best in our 12 year run of Charter Fishing aboard the Nauset. Word spreads fast with the internet. Last June and early July saw the Pamet Harbor parking lot full most days with serious fisherman who know that Truro and Provincetown are the best launches for landing a trophy Striped Bass. That’s also the best time for casting plugs and plastic at first light. We were out most mornings at 4:30, watching the spectacular Truro sunrise, as we made way from the Pamet each morning. That frenetic pace didn’t slow down until mid July. In August, most summer vacationers arrive and we cater to families, either with a half day fishing charter or a combination fishing/whale watch or fishing/Lobstering charter. Kids love the Fishing/Lobstering trips because it splits up the day into more activities, (and you keep the lobsters). Parents and older guests like the whale Watch/Fishing Charters. On those trips, Captain Joe shuts off the Nauset’s engine and you can hear the whales breathe. It’s truly a memorable experience.

Joe and I would like to thank all of our regular returning anglers for your continued patronage. We look forward to seeing you each year and catching up with stories from the previous year. It warms our hearts to read the reviews that have been left on TripAdvisor and Google. Perhaps the secret of our success lies between the lines of those reviews…some of OUR best Summer memories are also those spent with you on the Nauset each year. We have as much fun as you do! Of course, our hope is that new potential guests that are perusing the internet looking for a fishing charter will give us a try. Check out my previous blog posts, read some testimonials or visit TripAdvisor to read what others have said about their experience. We’ve made booking a snap with our online reservation system and acceptance of credit cards. Finally, if you are inclined to comparison shop on other charter fishing websites, (like we have) you’ll quickly realize that our value proposition is second to none. I encourage you to send Joe an email with any questions or better yet, click a “Reserve” button and book an early date for the 2019 season. We hope to see you out on the water, making memories that we know will last a lifetime. Have a Happy New Year!
