over the last three summers we have booked a striper charter with Captain Bruce. We have always caught fish with him! Two years ago he came to the pier and told us fishing wasn't any good. He actually gave us the option to back out of the trip! We opted to head out. We were going to be heroes or... More

HI Glenn ! Thanks very much ! I am glad I was able to produce for you. When we have slow fishing like that I am always stressed because it is so unusual. Looks like I pulled a rabbit out of my hat on that day at least. On another note, I need to call you about moving the departure... More

Bruce really knows how to fish and, combined with his charm, is a great captain for hitting the seas and enjoying what the cape has to offer from the ocean and the fish. There are many folks that fish near Chatham, but Bruce knows the area very well - and his experience is bound to pay off in your ability... More

If you want to catch fish, Bruce is the best guide in Chatham! I fish my own boat out of Falmouth but once a year I will charter with a local captain in order to learn a few things. Bruce is extremely knowledgeable and will not only show you proper technique but will also tell you how to find the... More

Had such a great day fishing with Captain Bruce. He gave us all a good time. He's funny, entertaining and put us ALL on the fish. As a women, I appreciated the clean bathroom. His website and email communication prior to our trip was excellent. I'm about to book another trip.

Captain Bruce will get you on the fish. I have only gone striper fishing with him but someday I'll go for the tuna. Chatham is in such close proximity to the fish that you spend your time fishing and not getting to and from the "good" spots. Captain Bruce knows these waters and where the fish are. I wish I...

I first fished with Bruce around 2006, and booked several trips since. He puts you on the fish, and his fishing reports are full of information for those who fish on their own.

If you only have one opportunity to get out for a memorable fishing charter while visiting Cape Cod, make it Capeshores Charters. The experience Captain Peters has is evident is his consistency to 'find the fish'. We have fished with Capeshores Charters several times now and always have a great experience. My husband & I are seasoned travelers and have... More

Great day of fishing in Chatham. Captain Bruce is awesome & knows what he is doing. This was our 2nd trip as a family. (We caught 6 keepers last year & 4 keepers this year (11 total fish this year too). Well worth the money & will be back.
