light tackle fishing cape cod

Light-tackle, fly and jig & pop-style fishing off Cape Cod

Welcome to Outermost Angling Charters, a leading sportfishing outfit on Outer Cape Cod. We specialize in light-tackle and fly-fishing for striped bass, bluefish and Atlantic bluefin tuna, running guided trips aboard our 26-foot Seavee from early spring to late fall. Year after year we continue to be one of the top-producing sportfishing vessels on the Cape, serving anglers from around the globe, of all levels of experience.  

Cape Cod Bay and the ocean waters from Provincetown to Chatham and beyond are home to a world-class fishery, capable of producing the catch of a lifetime. We equip our customers with top-of-the-line inshore and offshore tackle to maximize their chance of success with every hook-up. Our techniques vary from “jigging-and-popping” for Atlantic bluefin tuna to offshore big-game flyfishing — the ultimate challenge for anglers pursuing fast-moving pelagic species. We use light tackle spinning set-ups or fly-fishing for our inshore species such as striped bass, bluefish, bonito, or false albacore.  

Our best weapon is the knowledge and expertise of Capt. Josh Zacharias. Josh is a Cape native with decades of experience fishing and navigating the waters around Cape Cod.
