  • review rating 5  Had a great time fishing with Chas'n Tails!! A few friends and I went for my birthday and it was such a great experience. The Captain was knowledgeable, laid back, and so accommodating. I also caught a huge bass! I would highly recommend using Chas'n Tails Charter Fishing to anyone looking for this kind of activity on the Cape. I'll definitely be booking another trip this summer!

  • review rating 5  I went on a fishing charter with Russ last year, with a group of my girlfriends. Most of us were from cape cod but had never caught a fish before! (Also, I was scared ????) BUT ALAS, his boat was clean and safe, he’s the nicest guy you’ll ever meet, he encourages you without pressure, is calm, kind, and downright passionate about what he does, and we had an absolutely beautiful day. I would highly recommend a charter with Russ, to celebrate your bachelorette/ bachelor party, family reunion, gals/pals weekend, or as a gift to someone that you love. Thanks again Russ for a beautiful day. Looking forward to doing it again!
