Our 26′ Jones Brothers Cape Fisherman  

Our Jones Brothers 26′ Cape Fisherman was custom-built in 2012 to our specifications and the exacting standards of master boat-builder Donnie Jones. With its deep-sea hull design, this boat is spacious, stable, and comfortable, and provides a smooth, dry ride. It is powered by a 300 hp Yamaha four-stroke outboard and equipped with a Furuno chart plotter, fish finder and sonar, and top-quality safety gear to meet or exceed all Coast Guard regulations.

Fishsticks Charters always welcomes beginners, and courteous, professional assistance is tactfully tendered while fishing. We also offer fly fishing instruction on or off the water for individuals and groups.

We passed with flying colors!

We’re proud to announce our new boat just passed a rigorous Coast Guard inspection, one of only a handful of island charter boats to do so. The inspection was conducted by specially trained members of the US Coast Guard Auxiliary, and certifies that we have met all the USCG requirements for our class of vessel. In other words, they checked everything that the CG would check during a boarding, which includes all safety and navigation equipment and documentation.
