Fishing The Cape

We are fortunate that some of the finest fishing grounds are located just a short boat ride away. Hop aboard “Star Struck”, our 34 foot Regulator and we will get you there in a hurry. Whether it’s light tackle, targeting Striped Bass, Bluefish and Black Sea Bass, or a full day offshore in search of Bluefin Tuna and Sharks, we have state of the art gear and knowledgeable captains to put you on the fish. Should you reel in a “keeper” (or “keepah” as the locals say), we will have our chefs prepare it for dinner.
