The Best Inshore Fishing on Cape Cod Bay

Barnstable Harbor Fly and Light Tackle Fishing Charters

Barnstable Harbor Fly and Light Tackle Fishing Charters

Sight-fish for striped bass across sandy flats or stalk them as they are feeding along craggy shorelines.  Chase high flyin’ terns across the bay to locate and cast at pods of hungry striped bass and feisty bluefish.

Salty Fly’s guided fishing trips depart from Cape Cod’s Barnstable Marina; home of the Mattakeese Wharf Restaurant and the Hyannis Whale Watcher Cruises.  Pack a sandwich, your favorite fishing hat, and your polarized sunglasses for a morning (or afternoon) of fishing.

Capt’n Avery’s comfortable and “well-appointed” 20′ Jones Brothers 1910 center console with its quiet 150HP 4-stroke Yamaha engine provides a comfortable fishing platform for up to 3 anglers.  Enjoy a personalized angling adventure and discover the secrets of Barnstable Harbor, one of the best striped bass fishing destinations in the world.

Salty Fly Charters supplies all the gear, fishing tips, local knowledge and a friendly atmosphere for you to have a great day on the water.  If fishing isn’t your thing, book a Harbor or Birding Tour with Capt’n Avery and see close up the famous Sandy Neck Lighthouse, and the flora & fauna that make Barnstable Harbor such a special place.

We also offer Sandy Neck Catered Dinner Picnics with Chef Sally.  Our picnics are a great opportunity to enjoy a Cape Cod experience typically reserved only for locals.

You were great!  We all had a blast and thank you for providing memories for a lifetime. 

From start to finish you were solid…and the fish did their part.  Just spectacular.

Gravy undergoes a Renovation

As many of you know, last spring my fuel tank went bad.  Last summer I ran the boat with a 12 gallon portable fuel tank.  There were many trips to the fuel dock as 12 gallons of gas was enough for two trips, but not enough for two trips and peace of mind. Further...

The Trials of Boat Ownership…

It's early morning, the marina is quiet, the boat is covered in dew and the clients are on their way.  The ritual of prepping the boat for a day of fishing begins.  The clients step on board.  The key is turned and the engine starts, every time... Then begins the...

Fisherman are optimists…

...otherwise, we would never go fishing again after a, shall we say, less lucrative day of fishing. Yesterday was the trip of "minis'.  Whatever year-class these fish are, they are abundant this year. Nevertheless, they aren't really "the...
