July 3rd at the OAC


It’s no secret that the OAC has the best view for the Oyster Harbors Fireworks to be held July 3rd this year. Members and their guests are welcome. However, it is important to remember, the OAC is a private club. Also, please remember no glass out on the decks for safety reasons (there are plenty of red solo cups in the kitchen closet!). We are offering $100 for someone to be stationed at the door from approximately 7pm0in to make sure the club is occupied by members and their guests only. Please contact Patricia at the club at 508-420-4336 or [email protected] if you have an interest.

Learn To Fish With Captain Ron Murphy


The OAC has booked two dates with long time fishing expert, Captain Ron Murphy.  He started his charter business in 1976 and has been fishing the waters surrounding Cape Cod for 35+ years.  Specializing in fishing the rips with light tackle, Ron was a teacher for over 30 years and a long time member of the OAC.
He is a regular speaker at the OAC and always willing to share his secrets of catching big striped bass out at Monomoy. This is a great chance to learn from the best.  If you are new to fishing and want to get a jump start or an experienced angler that simply wants a great day on the water. We have the following dates all set:


Thursday July 19th

Wednesday August 15th


The cost is $125/angler, which includes: fishing with Ron Murphy on Stray Cat, all tackle and gear and the tip for the Captain and/or crew. Everything is handled, you just need to show up. There are six spots for each trip. Please contact Patricia at the OAC: 508-420-4336 or [email protected]


Spots are available on a first come first serve basis. Your email or phone call will reserve your spot, but payment within a couple days is required to hold your spot. Ron will set the exact fishing times for those dates a couple days prior based on tides and conditions at that time.  


If you joined the OAC to improve your fishing skills, this is your chance. Seminars are great for information, but there is no better way to gain experience than just getting out on the water and catching fish.
