Cape Cod Deep Sea, Sport Fishing & Pleasure Cruises: The Dancing Squid Offers it All!
When any species of ‘fish’ is mentioned in the same sentence as the beautiful location of Cape Cod, everyone seems to drool. Half of that group are those who want to set out upon the water and catch something ‘this big’ to either mount on the wall or take a picture of that they can carry in their wallet to let all their friends know that they ‘landed’ a true treasure. The other half drool because they think of the stunning, delicious array of seafood that Cape Cod has to offer.
Looking for a guide to help you in Cape Cod? Look no further. The name is Dancing Squid Sport Fishing and the Captain of it all is Cape Cod’s own Cap’n Bill. Name a species you’re after: Seabass, Scup, Tautog, Squid, Fluke, Striper, Bluefish, Cod, Tuna, Shark…you name it, Cap’n Bill can bring you to it. An avid recreational and commercial fisherman his entire life, he went striper fishing for the first time at the age of nine and was literally ‘hooked’ after that.
Let’s start with the vessel. Parker 2520 XLD, Twin Yamaha 150 Outboards, cruises at 30 knots, with a live baitwell, sink and washdown. This is a boat that offers two Pilot stations: one in the wheelhouse, one on deck. Lowrance 10 inch sonar, radar, GPS on deck. Lowrance 12 inch touch with side scan sonar, radar and GPS in wheelhouse.
With a private head and outriggers for Tuna fishing, although only 25′, The Dancing Squid fishes like a much larger boat. Parker’s have a compact wheelhouse which leaves more deck space for guests, and should the weather permit, two people can fish on the bow.
Want to get on board for some Deep Sea Fishing? Trips begin in early May and end in early November. What you’re going after includes: Squid, Tautog (Blackfish), Seabass, Scup (Porgy), Fluke (Summer Flounder), Bluefish, Striped Bass, Cod, Haddock, Monkfish, and Pollock.
(You can head to the site for details on specific species, open seasons, state regulations, and catch limits.)
Cap’n Bill and crew provide all fishing equipment (poles, jigs, lures, weights, bait, etc.), but feel free to bring your own gear if that’s what brings you ‘luck’. Make sure to pack those warm clothes, comfortable shoes and rain gear because even though weather forecasts may be optimistic, Mother Nature in Cape Cod can be a little fickle at times. In other words, trips in May and October can be chilly.
Also bring your own food and beverages (alcoholic beverages permitted), but try to avoid bringing glass on the boat. Bring along those coolers and ice for your catch, and large Ziploc bags for your fillets. But if you flew in on vacation unprepared, just let the company know when you book your trip and they’ll do their very best to accommodate your needs.
Legal requirements mean that no more than 6 passengers can come aboard, and you’ll be a lot more comfortable with room to spread out if tour numbers are 4 or 5. When it comes to trip rates, if the target is: Squid, Tautog, Seabass, or Scup: ?4 Hours at $500; 5 Hours at $625; or, 6 Hours at $700.
?If focusing on either Striped Bass or Bluefish: 6 Hours at $675, and 8 Hours at $875.
If headed out for Fluke: 10 Hours at $875. It is also important to note that on these trips, Jumbo Seabass is normally caught as well.
If your target happens to be, Cod, Haddock, Monkfish, or Pollock: 12 Hours at $1125
And the company also offers combination trips for multiple species.
Oh…it is Sport Fishing you want? Not a problem at all. You can chum and drift for Sharks, including Mako, Blue, Porbeagle and Thresher. Or you can troll for Tuna, including Bluefin, Big Eye and Yellowfin. The sport fishing trips begin in late June and end in early November.
And, yes, last but certainly not least, you can book a Pleasure Cruise that is beyond a pleasure to experience.
There are many reasons to choose Cap’n Bill. Whether a novice or an avid fisherman, if you and your guests are interested in a great experience and fishing on a boat that is built for safety, speed, comfort, and adorned with state of the art electronics, then The Dancing Squid is the boat for you!
The Dancing Squid and Cap’n Bill guarantee that after experiencing Sport or Deep Sea fishing, or simply taking that amazing Pleasure Cruise with the family that you will be booking your next trip the second you return to the dock.
In other words, it’s time for Cape Cod. Let the drooling begin!
