FISHING CHARTER RI
OFFSHORE & INSHORE CHARTER SERVICES
When you book your fishing charter from RI, you will be fishing with one of the hardest working full-time Captains in the fleet. Below you will find directions to our charter fishing boat.
FROM PROVIDENCE, RI AND POINTS NORTH
Take I-95 South to exit 87 for CT 349/Clarence B. Sharp Hwy towards US-1 N. Continue onto CT-349 S/Clarence B. Sharp Hwy. Take the Bridge St exit toward US-1/Downtown/Groton. Turn left onto Bridge Street. Continue onto Thames St. Groton Oil & Marina will be on your right. Pull in and drive down the driveway to the marina to park. You will see signs for Osprey Sportfishing Charters.
OFFSHORE CHARTER FISHING
Offshore fishing aboard the Osprey refers to deep sea fishing the waters south of Long Island and Block Island, where the water depth increases. Offshore trips are a minimum of 12 hours, as it takes more time to get to and from the fishing grounds. This is a much different experience than Inshore fishing in that it requires greater patience and an ability to withstand rough waters. For those willing to gamble and seek a thrill of a lifetime at the expense of consistent fishing of smaller species, this trip is for you. The larger oceanic fish such as Shark, Tuna, Marlin and Swordfish are large, beautiful, strong and often put up an acrobatic fight when hooked. If you are willing to take the chance at having this amazing experience, then this trip is for you!
INSHORE CHARTER FISHING
Inshore fishing aboard the Osprey refers to the waters of Long Island and Fishers Island Sounds. Fish most prevalent in these waters are Striped Bass, Bluefish, Fluke, (Summer Flounder), Black Fish and Porgie, in season. Inshore fishing is a fun experience for both the beginner and the experienced fisherman, as our first mate is there to instruct and assist if needed. This type of fishing provides the most consistent action while still having the possibility of landing trophy fish.
