The Islander is a 31' JC Boat, powered by a Catepillar Diesel Engine. The Islander is equipped with state of the art electronics and all Coast Guard approved safety gear. All custom tackle is provided and "yes" we do have a bathroom.

Come fish with us as we chase our favorite prize, the Striped Bass. The South side of Cape Cod has some of the best Striper spots on the east coast, Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket, and Cuttyhunk, just to name a few. We use all types of methods, trolling, jigging, vertical jigging, chunking and casting to catch Bass depending on the opportunity and time of year.

CAPTAIN:

Captain CJ Lambert's adventures have taken him from Maine to North Carolina, Florida, The Bahamas, and Mexico. He is USCG Licensed with over 20 years of fishing knowledge.

POPULAR CATCHES:

Striped Bass: The Striped Bass is probably the most fished for species on the east coast. The "Striper" has the ability to grow over 80-pounds with the current world record being 78-pounds. However, 3 fish over 70-pounds have been caught within 20 miles of Falmouth in the past decade. The average fish caught daily on the Islander ranges from 5-30 pounds with the occasional 40-pounder mixed in. We employ all methods of fishing from trolling, jigging, and live baiting and casting depending on the crew and time of year. The current regulations are 2 fish per angler with a minimum size of 28 inches.

Bluefish: They're Always hungry and always around, the Bluefish is an excellent game fish. The fish around our area average 3-15 pounds and can be caught by a variety of techniques. Check out our August Bluefish Specials. These are great trips for the whole family. There is no minimum size limit for Bluefish however a limit of 10 fish per angle is in effect.

Sharks: The waters South of Martha's Vineyard are perennial shark hotspots. Aboard the Islander we typically catch Blue, Mako, and Thresher Sharks. The Blue Shark is the most commonly caught shark with an average size of 50-300 pounds and has poor table quality. The Mako Shark is a prized game fish and can exceed 1200-pounds. The world record being caught off of Martha's Vineyard in 2001, weighed 1,221-pounds. The average size is 70-200 pounds and is excellent table fair. The Thresher Shark is also a prized game fish and the strongest fighters too. Battles lasting over 2 hours are not uncommon. The daily limit for Sharks is one per boat, per day.

Tuna: Some years we get a good run of School Bluefin Tuna in the waters South of Martha's Vineyard, these fish will range from 15-200 pounds and are excellent sport on light tackle. We typically troll or chum to catch these fish and on occasion casting and fly fishing have come into play.

Bottom Fish: The Bottom Fish in our area is excellent and overlooked. On the Islander we mainly target Sea-Bass, Fluke, and Scup. When using light tackle, these game fish provide excellent sport and fun for the whole family. These trips usually consist of constant action and some very tasty fillets for the cooler.
