Fishing is an activity that anyone can do. It can be seen as a sport, profession, or hobby! The act of fishing comes with many benefits, especially for kids. It can teach valuable skills, boost appreciation for being outdoors and the environment, build confidence, and much more. Fishing is a great activity to introduce your kids to. Here are some more of the benefits fishing can bring to your kids.
Kids often don’t realize how beautiful and great the outdoors really is. While they might like to play outdoors in your home’s backyard or on the playground, exposing them to a beautiful body of water in nature can help them grow more appreciative of the environment.
Unplug From Technology
Fishing is a great way to get away from technology for the day. Make sure if you’re bringing your kids fishing to leave their mobile devices shut off or put away. Help them see and appreciate nature by getting them away from their screens. Unplugging from technology for a whole day can do wonders for one’s mental health.
Learn Great Morals
Taking your kids on a fishing charter is a great place to teach your kids important life lessons and morals. When fishing one must learn to respect other fishermen’s space and respect the quiet and peaceful environment that surrounds them. Fishing charters will also teach kids how to safely handle fish and not harmfully discard them.
Fishing is a great way to teach your kids patience. Everyone knows that when you go fishing it is not guaranteed that you will catch a fish quickly or even catch one at all! Fishing will teach them to wait for what they want and will also teach them that you may not always get what you want in life.brin

Interested in booking a fishing charter trip this summer on Barnstable Harbor in Massachusetts? If you have never been on a fishing charter before, here are some tips to make sure that you have an exciting and awesome experience.
Pick A Reputable and Experienced Captain
When you sign up, let your captain know that this is your first time on a fishing charter. Capt. T Lange, whose boat is located on Barnstable Harbor, will make sure to give you one of the best fishing trips possible. It is also important to listen to all of the directions the captain gives you as there are very specific protocols while out on the harbor. Capt. T Lange’s main goal is to make sure everyone on his fishing charter has an extremely fun and safe fishing experience.
Scared of Getting Seasick?
It is impossible to predict if you will get seasick unless you already know you have a history with doing so. However, it’s usually best to not take your chances because that could risk ruining your fishing charter experience. You can buy an over the counter medicine to help make sure you do not get seasick during your trip.
If you choose not to take an over the counter medicine and you start to feel seasick, what you can do it keep your head up and stare on the horizon. This will help you watch something steady so that your brain won’t think about the fact that you are swaying around on the boat.
Keep A Positive Attitude
Sometimes people get discouraged because they are not always able to catch a fish. While a lot of people do catch some fish on Barnstable Harbor, it is not guaranteed. Capt. T Lange will work to give you an exciting and fun day on the water whether you are able to catch a fish or not. If you do leave without a catch, we hope you still have a positive attitude and enjoyed your day and experience on the harbor.

Over the past couple of years, Cape Cod Bay has seen an influx of juvenile Atlantic Bontio during the late summer. The fish range in size from 4″-12″ and on most occasions they’re everywhere. I mean, literally everywhere. When they’re feeding, it looks like a machine gun is shooting the water. It’s awesome, but leaving a little left on the table…
By that, I mean when will their older, more mature brothers/sisters join in the action? It’s well known the Bontio fishery around Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard is well established. The Bonito’s get to 24″-30″ and are EXCELLENT table fare. Guys will go to crazy lengths to get them not only on spinning gear, but fly gear as well.
I’m going to go out on a limb, and suggest that within the next 2-3 years, we will see those larger Bonito’s inhabit Cape Cod Bay along with their juvenile counterparts. There have been a couple mature ones caught, but I’m talking about a reliable fishery for them in Cape Cod Bay. The immense amount of silversides and peanut bunker that have been moving into the bay have certainly added to the reasons why they’re there. I also think water temperature is playing a factor as well.
Regardless, if I’m correct, this will provide an entirely new fishery for the Cape Cod Bay region and bring a ton of fun. Typically, during the time of year that they move in, the Striped Bass fishing tends to die off due to the warming of the water and the Striped Bass move further offshore and into a nightly feeding pattern.
Let’s keep our fingers crossed and check back in a couple years!
To say the least….
It took awhile for the bigger fish to show up. End of May/beginning of June was much slower than anticpated. Was it the cooler spring? Lack of bait? Who knows…
We had lots of small fish, providing a ton of fun for our guest, but it took some effort to weed through the small ones to get to the bigger ones for them to bring home for the dinner table.
However, past couple weeks have been very good, with Striped Bass ranging from 34″-48″ being caught trolling, drifting bait, as well as top water casting.
Hopefully, this bite continues on!
I bet anyone $100 that in 11 days, we we will have keeper Striped Bass on the bay side.
Comment on IG,FB, or below, and I will disocunt the trip by the amount we bet (only till May 15th).
