Review of Shark Shark Tuna Fishing ChartersReviewed 2 days ago

“Often times a man goes fishing when it’s not truly a fish that he is after.”

I grew up on Cape Cod, but when I turned 18 I moved away so it’s been a while since I’ve been out on the ocean here. My oldest memories are being a kid on my fathers 26 foot Sea Ray and fishing horseshoes sholes for Blues.

So it was very symbolic for me and sentimental to be back on the same waters with my Son 35 years later. We’ve done a lot of Charter Fishing together, from all over the world. Mexico, Bali, Vietnam, Costa Rica, and then more local like the Gulf Coast and in the West Coast.

But there’s something about Cape Cod fishing that isn’t like any other place in the world you can fish!

Charter Fishing is one of those activities were you got to be prepared to spend a lot of money with no guarantees of success. Course, a bad day fishing is still better than a good day at the Ofiice. However, every now and then you get the opportunity to manifest what I call “the perfect day”

“Perfect day” is when everything aligns and synchronizes to create the ultimate fishing experience! The ingredients of my perfect day with Captain Shane and Shark Shark Tuna was first of all having my Son with me that came in from New Mexico to celebrate his 31st birthday on the ocean.
Then the weather cooperated, created one of those beautiful sunshine days were the temperature was 70° …the skies were clear… the ocean was smooth and the air was fresh and crisp.

Another component for our perfect day was having a professional knowledgeable respectful and passionate Captain. Capt. Shane is all that! 
We felt like we were hanging with a close friend not on some charter. And he doesn’t have any fake personality or false persona.

The final and last ingredient to the perfect day,
was nonstop landing striped bass! When I say nonstop I mean, in the half day trip that we were out there, we had about half a dozen double hitters and brought up a ton of BIG Stripers! We only kept the limitation requirements of course and catch and released all the others but had SO MUCH FUN!!! Just amazing positive energy throughout the whole experience.

And everything was absolutely flawless!!!

What’s really nice is when you can make a human connection with the Captain. So by the time we were done it was more like making a really good new friend than a business transaction.

Captain Shane’s boat was spotless and very comfortable and in tiptop shape. You can tell he really cares about his “office”.

I’m trying to find some constructive criticism that I can offer but the truth is there was nothing that I would change. Everything was just perfect. In fact the only thing that was disappointing was when I had to say goodbye after just an amazing fishing experience!

There’s a lot of options here on the Cape when it comes to picking a Charter Fishing Trip. There’s a lot of different boats to choose from.

I give my highest highest rating and review and recommendation for Captain Shane. Because you can rely on him giving 110% to making sure that your experience with him is the best it could possibly be! He has won awards of excellence from TripAdvisor and has one of the highest rankings on Cape Cod on yelp, but beyond that trust your intuition and know that your perfect day awaits you with Captain Shane and Shark Shark Tuna.

Bass-ically we had a Whale of a time…

default image

Summary: We caught 4 big striped bass, spotted seals and humpback whale. We loved it.

More detail: Our six strong family (offspring ages 6, 11, 20, 23 plus us two parents) ventured into the open sea, after ratcheting up our fishing experiences from duck boat, then Capn' Kids to this one - the Shark Shark Tuna charter. We were a little apprehensive to be honest - we had an email from Captain Shane in the morning saying that the seas were choppy, and if we were not keen, he very graciously offered to take us the following morning instead, After a family meeting at which we decided we could tough it out, we stuck to the afternoon schedule and left at 1pm on our 5 hour trip.

When out in the open sea the weather was as rough and choppy as promised. The boat sped through the water, and bucked and soared over the waves, with the spray crashing over the front and sides of the boat. It was an adrenaline fueled ride, and made us feel something like crew on the deadliest catch. It was funny at first but after a while it did get scary - and even though Captain Shane made us feel totally safe and protected we were glad to get around the protected spit of Monoscoy Island where the swell calmed and we could get the lines out.

Within the first 5 - 10 minutes we were catching fish: striped bass. First Mate Max taught us how to let out the lines and reel them in - and soon all of us caught multiple fish - some too small to keep, two ugly Skate that Max hastily threw back, and four magnificent 30"+ fish that we could take back and eat. We bobbed around on the ocean for two delightful hours and the action kept coming for all of us.

On our return trip we saw seals basking on the sands of Monoscoy, and then Shane cried out "Whale!" - we saw the telltale blow of water, and then the body and fins of a whale, slowly going down the coast. Coming to within 10 metres of the boat, we were close enough to marvel at the huge mouth and teeth of these beautiful animals. That was a magical family moment.

The way back was rougher than going out, and the boat crashed down violently into the waves. With the wind at 26Mph, twice the seasonal average, the smaller kids were quieter now, a little scared by the power of the sea. We were distracted thankfully by the heroic filleting skills of Max, who was able to prepare the fish on the open back deck while we rode the rough waves. It's fair to say that some of our party felt nauseous by the time we pulled into the calm river again - and very glad that the hour long final leg was over.

Back on dry land we felt exhilarated by the trip. We'd caught enough fish to feed us and our extended family for several nights - in fact we BBQd it straight after and all agreed it was the most delicious fish we'd ever eaten. No one was actually sick, so again, we succeeded on that that family challenge. We were salty, and had the boat-rocking movement in our bones that make you sleep soundly. Nearly 24 hours later I'm still feeling the boat movement!

Anyway, highly recommended for a great family or a team adventure. We felt very much looked after by our hosts. Equipment and boat are top notch.

Some tips:
- On a day when the wind is up, age 6 is about the youngest I would take. Also, if you not of a strong stomach - maybe ensure it's a calm day. Or recognize that sea fishing maybe is not your bag.
- Take plenty of food and drink. You get hungry out there.
- warm clothes and a spare t-shirt a good idea.
- don't wear your best sneakers (as I did)
- be ready to embrace a certain amount of controlled danger - your family will bond around it, and you'll have those memories forever.

Thanks Shane and Max for a great trip.
