Pirate’s Cove Town Ramp

View Larger Map

End of Mashpee Neck Road. Resident parking only next to ramp but free public parking available farther up the road. Drop off kayaks at ramp and park up the road. Easy carry and launch. This launching area allows access to huge Popponesset Bay where stripers and bluefish can be found throughout the season. Heavy boat traffic in the bay. A few hundred yards from the launching area is the mouth of the Mashpee River, which was long famous as a sea-run trout fishery. The outer bay usually offers good fishing throughout the season and is reasonably protected from the wind but fishes best in the spring and fall, especially in the early morning and evening when the boat traffic lessens.
