And as your dreams come nearer to reality, this guide to the top fishing spots on Cape Cod will ensure that by the end of your stay, your family will probably be really tired of eating fish!
Shh! This is one of the few fishing spots on Cape Cod that is a secret, but one we’re willing to share with our treasured guests, so when you’re ready to reel in your day’s allotment of striped bass, wander to this spot under the overpass on Route 6 near Exit 9. Stake your claim on your favorite rock, pull out your pole, and let the good times commence. Quiet, cool, and scenic, this spot isn’t just great for fishing; the beauty and tranquility will allow for quiet contemplation as well!
There aren’t enough words to describe this Cape Cod hot spot, so we’ll keep it short and sweet. The fish love this area and so will you! Popular with fishing boats, you can pick a spot on the shore to cast your reel or charter a boat and fish from the waters. Either way, plan on catching more than your fair share of delicious dinner options!
Although Morris Island offers the most scenic views, Chatham is a popular fishing town, so finding a hot spot is easy and earning more than a couple of nights of dinner is even easier. Pack a cooler and your favorite ties and cast off from the first or the seventh spot you find. And remember, even though the quiet moments are the best part of any fishing journey, you’ll find very few such moments here. The fish are always jumping in Chatham!
Old Silver Beach is a popular spot for sandcastles and swimming, so picking the right time to fish is the key to success during your Falmouth expedition. As the sun sets and the parking spots open, the large and small mouth bass will practically jump onto your lines!
Planning ahead was always your strong point, and if you chose one of our waterfront cottages or homes, you won’t even need to get out of your pajamas; simply walk out in your backyard and cast your line in the best fishing spots on Cape Cod! All our Chatham villa rentals are designed to comfort and coddle, but the fishermen and women in your family are guaranteed to find these homes top notch! Reserve your New England getaway today!
Whether you’re familiar with the waters here on Cape Cod or not, every visitor that has fishing in mind as one of their must-do activities can benefit from the handy equipment and expert advice of a local fishing charter provider.

To begin the process of picking the best of Cape Cod’s fishing charters, you’ll first have to determine whether you want to head out onto water for deep sea fishing and make a day-trip of it, or for a normal fishing excursion. It will really depend on what type of fish you want to catch.
A charter known as The Hook-Up offers Bluefin Tuna fishing to the east of Chatham, Bluefish in Cape Cod Bay, and Stripers. They also offer bait and tackle, and tailor the experience to beginning fishers or seasoned anglers. For an excursion lasting four to eight hours, Aquarius Fishing Charters will take you to places like Race Point or Billingsgate Shoals to catch Bluefish, sharks, Giant Bluefin Tuna, and Striped Bass.
Charters such as Fishtale Sport Fishing and Shark Shark Tuna Saltwater Fishing can take you to locations like Nantucket Sound and give you a rundown on the various species of the area as you fish. Meanwhile, Salt Shaker Sportfishing uses a sport fisher boat with the latest marine electronics and safety equipment for catching striped bass and bluefish.
Children will enjoy the kid-friendly experience at Kid’s fishing Hyannis, which takes visitors of all ages on a short jaunt of ninety minutes, where they fish in protected waters using amphibious vehicles formerly used by the military, with bait and gear provided by the charter.
Yankee Deep Sea Fishing and Cape Cod Bay Charters are two other notable deep sea fishing charters, while Captain John Whale Watching & Fishing Tours allows you to learn more about the incredible whales that migrate here while fishing in beautiful surroundings.
