Block Island and Watch Hill Westerly, Rhode Island Fishing Charters
Rhode Island Striper Fishing Charters
Fish Trap specializes in exciting Rhode Island inshore and offshore sport fishing charters. Inshore we catch striped bass (striper), bluefish, tautog (blackfish) and awesome fluke fishing around the always productive Block Island and Watch Hill Reef. Rhode Island also makes a great base location for us to head to the deep sea offshore waters for the sport fishing exhilaration of catching mako shark, yellowfin tuna, mahi mahi and wahoo. Because Fish Trap is docked at Frank Hall Boat Yard in Westerly, Rhode Island, anglers coming from the western locations like Connecticut and Northern Rhode Island can save
nearly 45 minutes driving time each direction better than Point Judith, RI charter boats even though the boating distance to Block Island and other popular fishing areas is identical.
Captain Tom Logan is a lifelong fisherman with many years knowledge of the tricky ocean waters around Rhode Island, Block Island, Watch Hill, Montauk and the Northeast Canyons. Capt. Logan is confident in his ability to recommend the best times to catch your fish of a lifetime and he is one of the more experienced and successful Rhode island charter boat captains.

Offshore Deep Sea Fishing Charters: Fish Trap specializes in spectacular offshore mako and thresher shark fishing as well as those hard fighting schools of yellowfin tuna. Depending on what is currently available we may also target many unique species including bluefin tuna, longfin albacore tuna, bigeye tuna, swordfish, wahoo, mahi-mahi, tilefish, cod, pollack, haddock, porbeagle shark, blue shark, mako shark, blacktip shark, hammerhead shark, white marlin, and of course the majestic blue marlin. Our deep sea 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 our Canyons. You will have a good chance of seeing whales, dolphins (porpoises) and a large variety of pelagic birds that inhabit the offshore deep sea waters including gannets, shearwaters and storm petrels.
Our Inshore Fishing Charters: Most of our inshore charter fishing trips will take you a short distance from Watch Hill Point, Rhode Island where you will have great views of the Watch Hill Lighthouse and Napatree Point. We often fish the trophy rich fluke and striper areas around Block Island and Fishers Island and there is also great fishing along Misquamicut Beach. Inshore fishing charters target Rhode Island inshore species such as striped bass, bluefish, tautog (blackfish), black sea bass, scup, fluke, false albacore, green bonito, and winter flounder. Our unique full day inshore trips can be custom designed so that we are fishing for striped bass at first light and then quickly switch to another more active species like sea bass, tautog (blackfish) and fluke from about mid-day.
Our Sightseeing/Evening Cruises: We also offer sightseeing and evening cruises for those folks who are not interested in fishing but want to enjoy a boat ride which can afford them a scenic water view of the coast of Rhode Island, Connecticut and even Fishers Island, NY. Fall is an excellent time for sightseeing via boat because you can get a nautical perspective of the beautiful color changing fall foliage. Imagine sitting back with bottle of bubbly and enjoying a romantic cruise with that special person in your life. Hey guys, consider a calm evening cruise for that romantic proposal. We are also now offering Wind Farm trips as well as combination of both Wind Farm trips and inshore or offshore fishing charters.
