About This Boat

We are the REEL DEAL!

Come and have the time of your life on Cape Cod's beautiful waters where excellent fishing is only moments away. When you fish aboard the Reel Deal with Captain Bobby Rice you receive the TRUE fishing experience as you land stripers, blues and tuna that are bound to take you for an unforgettable ride.

With fourteen years in the charter business plus twenty years of commercial fishing, we were one of the first charter businesses in Truro and continue to be described as the best. Conveniently located between Wellfleet and Provincetown, also offering trips out of the Orleans area, for those on the upper Cape or off Cape we are worth the drive! You have found the Captain you want to hire.
We welcome anglers of all ages and skill levels, from those curious to try out fishing for the first time to the seasoned 'salty dog' who is looking for a few more great moments on the water. We customize your trip whether you are looking for a fun family trip with the kids or a hearty day on the water where you control the gear, just let us know! Reel Deal Fishing Charters is a MUST for your Cape Cod vacation. Fish now, work later.

Where we fish?

The majority of our trips go out of Pamet Harbor, Truro, conveniently located between Provincetown and Wellfleet that offers quick access to the best fishing grounds of outer Cape Cod.

Depending on the current fishing conditions, we may also depart from other boat launches on Cape Cod including Orleans. Your departure location will be confirmed the day before your trip.

Field & Stream magazine notes that 'Cape Cod has become what many saltwater anglers consider the premier striped bass fishing destination in the world' and we certainly agree!

What We Catch and How...


We tend to follow the general rules of thumb:
Stripers - late May through September
Blues - mid June through August
Black Sea Bass - May - June, September; Recreational Black Sea Bass season opens May 17, 2014
Groundfish (Cod, Haddock, Pollock) - April - early May; Recreational Cod Fishing season opens April 16, 2014
Bluefin Tuna - June through October *late Summer and Fall - peak season

Captain Bobby has an extensive assortment of rods, reels, and tackle equipment, he even makes his own jigs to get just the right size, shape, and color. We are also a member of the RONZ Pro Staff! Casting RONZ soft baits can be just the right trick for large bass and bluefin tuna.

Fin-Nor and Quantum is our gear of choice as they deliver a superior cast and excellent fight. We also have a selection of jigging rods and reels for those summer dog days when wire is the key. We welcome all levels of anglers and are more than happy to teach new comers!

Let US know how YOU prefer to fish!

Bobby Rice, a Cape Cod native and long time Truro resident, arguably has salt water running through his veins after spending the majority of his life on local waters. As a young teenager laden down with rods, tackle, and an aluminum skiff his adventures began and his devotion to fishing has continued to grow. Now he has been commercially fishing for almost 20 years and has encountered many prosperous fishing ‘holes’ and tricks of the trade through his endless hours spent on the waters from the Billingsgate shoals to Race Point to Martha's Vineyard.

Striped bass, black sea bass and bluefin tuna fishing are among his specialties while he also fishes for bluefish, scup, cod, haddock, pollock and sharks. Bobby's love for fishing runs deep and it shows. Stop in any local tackle shop and ask for a reference and you will see at a young age he is rapidly becoming a local legend. He authors a monthly column for On The Water magazine and is a member of the Pro Teams for Van Staal, RonZ Baits, Gibbs Lures, STORMR, Guides Secret, Daddy Mac Lures, Cortland Line, Fin-nor, Quantum, Smith Optics and Mercury Marine.

Bobby has admitted on several occasions that giving someone the experience of being on the water and catching big fish is more fun than catching them himself. This is what prompted him to obtain his USCG Captain’s license to gain the capability to further share his knowledge of the area and love for fishing. He completed the USCG certified OUPV – Near Coastal course at New England Maritime in the fall of 2000.

For years, Bobby has manufactured his own jigs to achieve just the right weight, shape, and color to maximize striper strikes. He has also been building and repairing his own fishing rods.

Bobby is an active member of the local community, assisting with the saltwater creatures project for the Truro preschool and also coaching one of the recreational basketball teams.

On any given day, May through October, if you are out on the water in the outer Cape Cod area from the waters of Truro and Provincetown around the hook to the Orleans ocean side, you will most likely see Captain Bobby in his center console fishing boat, which some have called a ‘floating tackle store’, because of his large inventory of rods/reels and tackle equipment. The key to the success of Reel Deal is that in addition to his busy fishing charter schedule, Captain Bobby is out there on the water doing "research" fishing anytime he has an open day trying out new gear and tackle and continuing to track the fish.


A Truro resident and descendant of long time Provincetown mariners, Captain Elena, has partnered with Bobby Rice to bring you the best fishing experience around. Starting out as Bobby's commercial fishing protege, Elena has taken a more prominent role as the sales and marketing engine for Reel Deal, i.e. this is the friendly voice you will speak with when booking your trip. Although she still manages to grab a few minutes on the water when sanity begins to escape her.

A USCG certified captain, completing the OUPV - Near Coastal course at New England Maritime, Elena’s ambitions go beyond the waters as well having graduated with honors from Harvard University, she is currently employed as a software engineer for Onset Computer Corporation. Elena also serves as a member of the Pamet Harbor Commission appointed by the Truro Board of Selectman.


Captain JR returns to the Reel Deal for his fourth full-time season of catching some great striped bass and tuna. A long-time Cape Cod resident born in western Massachusetts, JR has fished many locations throughout the Cape & Islands targeting a variety of species specializing in striped bass.
