Experience incredible Bluefin Tuna, Shark, and Striped Bass fishing on one of our custom fishing charters! Our boat is docked at a slip in Stage Harbor in Chatham with easy access to Cape Cod's best fishing spots for Bluefin Tuna, Shark, and Striped Bass.

The waters east of Chatham provide the best, most consistent fishing for Bluefin Tuna in the northeast. Most fishermen are surprised to find that they can land 50-250 pound tuna in an easy day trip from Stage Harbor from June through November. Join us for some of the best big game action in the northeast.
