We recently booked the Ginny G for a half-day fishing excursion. The Ginny G is a 34 ft Wayne Beal Down East Sport fishing boat that is docked in Provincetown, and she was perfectly suited for our charter of six fishermen. Captain Dave Gibson and his mate JB have some 130 years of fishing experience to draw from, and they ensured that we'd have a great time on the boat.
Captain Dave got on the radio and soon discovered there were no big schools of fish around Provincetown, so he powered up the Ginny G and headed across the bay to the Dennis, MA shoreline. A lot of other charter captains wouldn't burn the fuel and would fish nearby (and catch nothing but a bigger profit)... but Captain Dave and JB both wanted to give us a chance to catch some big fish.
Once we got to to the Dennis / Barnstable shoreline, JB and the Captain got us hand-jigging and we immediately started catching fish. The time flew by as we caught a great deal of striped bass, five of which were big keepers. They were delicious on the grill that same night, since JB bled the fish properly while on the boat and cut us some great filets once we got back to the pier.
There is never a guarantee that you will catch fish when you charter a fishing boat, but Captain Dave and our new friend (and great 1st Mate) JB gave us an advantage. Thanks to the crew of the Ginny G. Recommended.
