We (5 people, youngest a 13-year old boy) arranged for Capt. Bob Rank to take us out on a Wednesday, but on Tuesday afternoon he advised postponing due to rough seas until Friday. On Friday we met him at Children's Beach at 11 a.m., and he took us around Great Point and over to Siasconset area. The boat accommodates 6 comfortably. With his 30+ years of fishing experience, we went to areas where he has caught black sea bass, fluke and bluefish - each having a different habitat. We caught and landed 3 fluke and 1 porgie, and caught and released another 2 fluke (less than 17 inches), 3 black sea bass, 4 sharks, 2 skates and probably a bluefish which struck the lure but escaped with the hook while it was being reeled in. The whole journey took around 5.5 hours.
Capt. Bob did all the hard work - baiting the hooks, taking them out of the fish, cleaning the fish into fillets, and releasing the sand sharks. The variety of fishing was excellent for us - bottom fishing and trolling. We will arrange a trip with Capt. Bob again next summer.More
