Took a half day morning trip. Caught a lot of fish.Numerous keepers. Even got our names in the paper for one of the fish we caught. The kids are still talking about it. Tom was a great captain.

“Best experience!”

Took our two boys on their first ocean fishing trip. They made sure it was special. It was so fun for the whole family. We would definitely recommend them and if we return, we will do it again!

“Great Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2014

1/2 day afternoon trip for Stripers off of Monomoy. Brought my 3 older teens and one of their friends. We each took a keeper and threw several more back for another day. Great Trip. Tom is an excellent captain in a very busy waterway.

“Not a bite”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2013

Took the kids and a couple of friends on the 1/2 day trip - NO fish and not even a single bite! It was their first time deep sea fishing and it would have been nice have actually fished for more than 20 minutes out of the 4 hours spent trolling and moving to new spots with no results. Total bummer :(. Well, the seals were fun to watch on the ride back, I suppose.

I understand your frustration with the lack of fish. As Captain/Owner, this sort of trip is the most unfortunate part of being in this business, where there is the potential for the trip to result in no catch. Part of fishing is this potential, however it is rare. I would be happy to make a future accommodation if you were interested in pursuing a future charter. I am pleased that you were frank about your experience, in some ways it's unrealistic to have every review be completely glowing, as that is not how fishing and life unfolds.

“Lots of Keepers - Great for the Kids”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2013

After spending a few minutes on the phone, decided to try out Captain Tom. We arrived at the dock for an afternoon charter with three 9-year old boys . The boat was a a few minutes late but Tom made it up to us on the back end of the trip.

The morning fishing trip produced no results but our afternoon 4-hour trip landed us 10 keeper stripers! It was the first time the boys caught legit fish so it was a great experience for them. Tom knew exactly where to go and was very laid back. He is also hand-on helping as he controls the boat from the bow while you fish.

Thanks so much for a great time.
