Charter Loyalty

Ben, his son Tao, and Ben’s brother David have been Chartering the Nauset for the past 4 years.  They usually rent a house in Truro for a week to reunite with family, especially their Dad, around the third week of July.  That happens to be a very transitional fishing period. Stripers are moving south to Nauset after migrating to Race Point in the late Spring.  And the Bluefish haven’t arrived yet from points South.  It’s traditionally a tough fishing week or two. For the first two years of Ben Chartering the boat we caught almost nothing. But to their credit, they stayed with us and booked us again last year. And we did well, really well, off the cottages.  This year they had to adjust their visit a week earlier. That one week makes all the difference in Striper fishing. The Stripers are still here. We caught some Mackerel and live lined them early. But the fish were finicky and wouldn’t bite.  We switched it up and started to troll and Whammo! David caught a 36″ Then Tao caught a monster Bluefish and finally Ben caught another nice Striper.  We always clean the fish on the way in. Today was no different. I had just finished cleaning the fish and was washing down the deck when Joe tapped me on the shoulder. He pointed to the sonar, BASS were on the screen. Most other charter Captains would have just packed it in.  In fact, at that point we had been out over 5 hours for a 4 hour charter.  But, loyalty means a lot to us, and Ben and David have been super star’s in that regard.  So, as a thank you for staying with us through two lean years, we dropped some live Mackerel over the side. David’s bait got hit first, but it didn’t hold. Then Tao’s line started to run. And after an exhausting battle, in which all three contributed, a 41″ Striper was landed. Way to go Tao!! Thanks for your loyalty guys!  See you next year…
