Capt Joe and Mate Bob were fantastic. I would strongly recommend this charter for any family with teenage or younger children. They know where to catch fish and make it a memorable learning experience for the youngsters. They allowed real hands on and it was the best charter experience I have ever had on the Cape. ~Scott S.
Five stars from the Sandy Clan! 3 for 3 summers running with Captain Joe and First Mate Bob and each trip has exceeded the expectations set by the previous year! If you are looking for a combination of trade expertise and just good down to earth company, then Joe and Bob on the Nauset are a great bet for a super time. ~Sandy Clan
Thank you guys for a great charter. We appreciate the extra effort. Molly and I have fished all over the world. Hands down, you folks were the best to spend time with. Happy Hunting! ~Brian, Wyoming
Captain Joe and first mate Bob are professional, polite and engaging. They were very accommodating with three kids on board. Would recommend ReelEzee to anyone looking to have a fun fishing experience with some local knowledge filtered in. ~Jay
Shoved off at 6am and had a terrific time on the water. Capt Joe and First Mate Bob deliver great fishing, lots of stories and all around fun. All three of us went home with “keepers.” We’ve been fishing before with others, we’ll definitely be back out with Capt Joe and Bob ~ Mike D
Capt Joe. It was nice to be back on the water, salt spray and the prospect of hearing “Fish On,” is what draws us to it. We had fun, and had lobster for breakfast!! Best Wishes. ~ Shawn and Amelia
Captain Joe. We cannot thank you enough for providing us with an amazing day on the water, taking in all the sights and sound of outer Cape Cod. We set out hoping to catch fish but experienced so much more: seals playfully soaking up the sun’s rays on the beach, a whale who seemed to enjoy putting on a show just for us, and of course catching some beautiful fish which we were thrilled to eat and share with a few of our cottage neighbors and family back home! Beyond this, it is the people who make the difference. A captain who truly loves what he does: the sea is where he is most at home. His mate looks forward all year to spending his summer “vacation” on the water working closely with him. Truly a winning combination! We cannot wait until we will return again and spend another day on the water with you and Bob! Carol S.
Having spent over 30 years booking hunting and fishing trips throughout the USA and Canada, I know what’s expected of an outfitter. Captain Joe Francis and his mate Bobby, exceed all expectations. If you’re on the Cape and want a charter with an excellent Captain, go with Joe Francis ~Sal P exit 8A New Jersey
We had lots of action with smaller fish and all six of us landed fish within the first 30 minutes. Joe and mate Bob are great. They know where the fish are and can match the fishing to what your group is looking for. ~Dwight G
I kept hearing the word “Epic!!” and the stories and enthusiasm were endless! It is apparent that Bob has the patience and kindness of a saint to bother with including my exuberant babes on All the details!! I’ll pull together something more thoughtful for you from my husband, but this is a big thank you from me! We appreciate the late start too, though hopefully it didn’t cost us too many fish?. ~ Jenean H.
The whole family caught fish. It was a special moment with my kids and a great crew. Can’t wait to do it again. I will 110% refer them now and always. ~ Adam L
Joe, We had a great trip!!! My father, brother in-law, son, and nephews all had a day to remember. Please pass our thanks on to Bob as well. He is a great addition to your team. I will definitely take the time to write a post on our experience and we hope to make this an annual. See you next year and thanks again! ~Mike R.
Best Charter on the Cape ~ Captain Joe and Mate Bob were lots of fun and knowledgeable, and they find the fish! The boat rides like a dream through the water, and we were able to catch several Stripers plus a large bluefish. Then Captain Joe pulled some lobster traps and we were pleasantly surprised with several keeper sized lobsters! All in all a really fun, successful trip, one which we will definitely be doing again next year. ~David

Best Sport Fishing Charter Boat In Ma! Great time had by my husband, my two stepsons and myself! I thoroughly enjoyed all of us catching a lot of fish, the boat ride and the bathroom was WONDERFUL…very clean and even had a mirror so I could check my hair! We will definitely be booking another charter next year with Captain Joe and First Mate Bob 🙂 ~ Lyn R
I insisted that I wanted to catch something today and Capt Joe made sure I did just that! Not only did I catch something, I caught an almost 4 foot Striper! Such a great time! This was the best charter trip I’ve taken. We will definitely be back! ~Melissa S.
Had an amazing & beautiful morning fishing trip with Captain Joe and First Mate Bob!!! The water was beautiful, really nice boat, great conversation, learned a lot about Cape Cod coast and saw amazing wildlife. ~Wanderer
Lifetime Memories~Went Out Today with my 10 year old son who caught his first Striped Bass. The crew was tremendously professional and truly cared that our family had a fun experience. Thank you very much for an amazing trip! ~Kalbert
We went for a half day charter and were not disappointed. This was my first charter experience and it exceeded all of my expectations. Our group had so much fun that it was worth it just to go on a boat ride with Captain Joe and Bob. We’re looking forward to next years trip! ~Steve
