Westerly, RI Fishing Charters on Fish Trap


Whether you crave your RI fishing charter inshore for striped bass, bluefish or fluke fishing around the always productive Watch Hill Reef, or you prefer to head offshore for the excitement of catching shark and tuna, the Fish Trap is docked in Westerly, Rhode Island waiting your call.

For the seasoned angler looking to score that trophy fish or a first time angler just looking to catch some dinner, consider spending a day with Fish Trap. Our captain and mates are lifelong fisherman with many years knowledge of the tricky ocean waters around Watch Hill, Block Island, Montauk and the Northeast Canyons. We are confident in our ability to recommend the best times to catch that fish of a lifetime and we also know the best baits to accomplish it. We are always ready to take you to the hottest fishing spots near the Ocean State in order to target just the right fish for you.

  Nice wahoo on a Fish Trap RI charter.

► Our Offshore Charters: We target mako shark, thresher shark, porbeagle shark, bluefin tuna, yellowfin tuna, longfin albacore tuna, bigeye tuna, swordfish, wahoo, mahi-mahi, tilefish, cod, pollack, haddock, white marlin, and of course the majestic blue marlin. Offshore charter fishing trips will take you just south of Block Island or out to the offshore canyons, including Atlantis, "The Tails", Hudson, and Veatch. Spectacular sea life lives abundantly in the canyons and you will have a good chance of seeing whales, dolphins (porpoises) and the many pelagic birds that inhabit the offshore waters including gannets, shearwaters and storm petrels.

► Our Inshore Charters: Most inshore charter fishing trips will take you a short distance from Watch Hill Point where you will have great views of the Watch Hill Lighthouse and Napatree Point. There is also great fishing along Misquamicut Beach and the trophy rich areas around Block Island and Fishers Island. We will target such species as striped bass, bluefish, tautog (blackfish), black sea bass, scup, fluke, false albacore, green bonito, and winter flounder.

Our Sightseeing/Evening Cruises: We offer sightseeing and evening cruises for those folks who are not interested in fishing but want to enjoy a boat ride affording them a scenic water view of the coast of Rhode Island, Connecticut and even Fishers Island, NY. The fall is an excellent time for sightseeing by boat because you can get a nautical perspective of the beautiful color changing foliage. Imagine sitting back with bottle of bubbly and enjoying a romantic cruise with that special person in your life. Hey guys, can you think of a more romantic setting than a calm evening cruise for the most memorable proposal?
