I've been fishing with Captain Ray for 15 years, and every trip has been an adventure! He knows the waters off Cape Cod better than anybody. From shark, and tuna to stripers and bottom fish, he ALWAYS finds the fish, and puts us on them. There isn't a time when he doesn't work his tail off to make sure everyone is comfortable, and catching fish! I would highly recommend Bass River Charters to anybody who likes the water. From young kids to seasoned fishermen (and women), he makes you feel right at home, and you WILL have a blast!

For our fifth year in a row, Captain Ray has shown us Cape Cod fishing at its best. Non stop fish from Stripers, to Blue fish, to fluke, sea bass and even some dogfish, scup and skates mixed in. On top of that, he is great company. Great with adults and children.

Captain Ray could not have given us a better day of fishing! If you are looking for an authentic fishing trip with a knowledgeable captain, this is the one for you! Ray is extremely enthusiastic about fishing and energetic. He will work with you to hook those fish and bring them in while instructing you on how to do it!
What a memorable day! Thank you to Ray and first mate Laurie for attending to our needs. A day I will always remember!

Ray was a friendly, kind and generous host. We had a fabulous fishing experience. He certainly knows where to find the fish. We were pulling in Stripers from the first cast! It continued until we were done. His boat is spotless and his style was laid back while very efficient. This was just the experience we were looking for for our 3 generations family trip. Thank you very much for the great experience, Captain Ray!

Captain Ray runs the best charter I've been on. Friendly, calm, and knows his stuff. He got us dialed in on the stripers and we limited out in under an hour. The rest of the day was just for fun and we had nonstop fish to the last minute! Easily the best day of fishing. Can't wait to book him again for some Tuna!

Captain Ray was awesome and took great care of us. We had a group of six from ages 4 - 74 and we all caught fish. Captain Ray was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. Fun, memorable experience for all!!

Had a great day of fishing with kids. Captain Ray had us reeling stripped bass non-stop. Family does very little fishing and he made the trip very enjoyable. Allowed some time to view seals on beach. Would book again should we return to the Cape. I have already recommended Captain Ray and Bass River Charters to several people.

Saturday afternoon we met up with Cpt Ray for a 4 hour stripe bass fishing charter. The Cpt and mate were very friendly and made our trip a huge success. We traveled about 1/2 hour to the first set of rips and landed 7 fish in 30 minutes. They were a little undersized so we moved on. The cpt took us to another of his favorite spots and the fish were biting. We landed a number of keeper sized Stripers with the biggest being close to 40".

Without doubt if you enjoy catching fish and not just fishing we highly recommend Bass River Charters!

Captain Ray always works hard to make sure we catch fish. We’ve been out with him a few times now and he’s always maximizing the the plan so we can have the best trip possible. He’s put us on tuna, non-stop striper fishing and huge black sea bass. He’s a very friendly guy, knows the waters like the back of his hand, and does a great job overall.

I would recommend a trip with him to anyone.
