It’s time to get out on the water and book a trip with Marlin III Sportfishing Charters. With decades of experience, you can be sure that you’ll have an awesome trip with Captain John Goolgasian, who will take you to the best places in Rhode Island. Fishing here his whole life, he knows all the best fishing grounds.

Step on board his 25’ Parker walkaround boat, the “Marlin III.” You and 4 friends will fish from this beautiful boat in comfort. Parker boats are known throughout the fishing world for their seaworthiness and proven design. Along with full safety and navigational equipment on board, you can fish with peace of mind.

This boat also has a 225 HP Yamaha engine that will get you to the fishing grounds before you know it. The live bait tank will keep any bait you purchase fresh and ready to go. The first mate is on board to help show you the ropes – Capt. John believes in a hands-on experience, so expect to get stuck in!

Fish you’ll be targeting include Striped Bass, Black Seabass, Bluefish, Flounder, and Porgy. Let the captain know if you’d like to try flounder gigging on any of his trips.

Included in the price are top quality rods and reels from Penn, as well as the lures for the day, and even your fishing license. You are welcome to bring along your own food and drink in a small cooler. Please leave the hard liquor at home though! After the trip, the first mate can fillet your catch for you, but please remember to tip him – the industry standard is 20%, and is much appreciated for all their hard work on your trip.

About the Captain

John Goolgasian
Narragansett, Rhode Island, United States
Member since October 2018
Captain John Goolgasian has been fishing since he first hooked a Bluegill at the age of 8. He began captaining boats in 1989 in Rhode Island, so is a leading expert in this area! He once caught a 575 lb Bluefin Tuna which he is very proud of – this beauty took 45 minutes to reel in but was worth every second. The whole family will love fishing with Capt. John. As a retired school teacher, he is great with kids and teaching people how to fish.
