What to Expect on Your Fishing Charters RI
A charter fishing trip is about you having fun and Fishing Charters RI isthe tailored choice to address both the novice and experienced angler. When chartering a Rhode Island fishing trip with Captain John Sheriff, he will inquire as to your level of experience and expectations to assure you an exciting and safe trip.
Our charters and vessel can comfortably accommodate up to 4 anglers and is equipped with all regulated safety gear and head. Depending on the level of your experience and the type of charter you prefer, there may or may not be a mate aboard.
When fishing Rhode Island for Striped Bass and Bluefish, (the most common charter) Captain Sheriff’s charters are prepared to utilize the numerous techniques effective for catching either of these game fish.
While many charter captains focus specifically on trolling and jigging with wire line for Striped Bass and Bluefish, Captain Sheriff will suggest this as the last option since there is a lot of work involved for the angler and may become tiresome and only allow for only 2 anglers to fish at the same time. The common approach we find our clients prefer is for all 4 anglers fishing at the same time. This is accomplished by vertical jigging over deep structure, casting lures on light spinning tackle and or live bait.
In addition, Captain Sheriff’s Fishing Charters is prepared to fish the other species available per D.E.M. Regulations at that time of the year if the bite is not present or if there is a need to wait for conditions to change such as the tide.
When shopping for a fishing charter, keep in mind that with Captain Sheriff’s Fishing Charters everyone can fish at the same time. Our vessel, FISH ON, equipped with twin 225 HP Yamaha outboards provides a comfortable cruising speed of 35-40 knots. This allows us to get to our destination in approximately one half to one third the time of many other fishing charter vessels. This all equates to more fishing time and value for your money!
We recommended that you bring a lunch, beverage (no hard liquor) and rain gear. (Please no black soled footwear.) The Captain will fillet the clients fish, except Scup, so bring along a cooler and ice to preserve your fillets for the trip home. A customary tip of 20 % for the captain or mate is greatly appreciated!
