Reel Addiction Charters invites you to relax and have lots of fun catching fish in, and around, Newport, Rhode Island. Captain Chip Parker will take you near and off the coast to search for various species and with all the grounds being rich in fish, you’ll have a great chance to land a respectable catch.

Your trip will start on a 30’ Stamas walkaround, a boat that accommodates 4 guests and runs on a twin 225 HP Yamaha engines. It’s got comprehensive navigation technology that will take you to the fish quickly and its facilities include a toilet, shower, and beds. There’s an ice-box to store your fish and drinks and a livewell to provide live bait. For any help you may need, just turn to the first mate, who does work for tips only!

The species you can catch include Striped Bass, Blue Fish, Tautog, Sea Bass, Scup, and more. You can catch them on light and heavy tackle in a great variety of ways including bottom and deep sea fishing, trolling, spinning, jigging, popping, and drift fishing. You can keep your catch if you like, kids are welcome to join the trip, and there can be NO SMOKING,  of any kind on board.

The captain provides you with all the fishing gear, licenses, drinks, and he’ll also clean and fillet your catch for free, on full day charters only. You just bring the food of your choice before you depart.

Come to Aquidneck Island and have a memorable fishing experience with Captain Chip and Reel Addiction Charters!

    With half day charters, you'll concentrate on specific species. With only 4 hours, we wont have much opportunity to check multiple places for fish. Depending on the time of year, 4-hour trips might be hard to track down Striped Bass at times. So, it will depend on your preferences whether you'll target Striped Bass, Seabass, Scup, or some other fine species.

    Full Day Trip
    Low rate deposit non-refundable
    8 Hour Trip, starts at 7:00 AM
    Seasonal trip Jun 1 - Dec 1
    US $1,000
    The availability of this trip depends on what's running and the time of year. You could be fishing for one species in the morning and switch to others as it gets later. But full day gives the best chance to catch fish, and check more areas. We offer trips for striped bass, bluefish, sea bass, Tautog, and Fluke.

    Low rate deposit non-refundable
    10 Hour Trip, starts at 6:00 AM
    Seasonal trip Jul 1 - Nov 1
    US $1,500
    Block Island is the Striped Bass Capital of the World. Not to mention giant Bluefish as the best fighting fish. You never know what you'll see there – sharks, whales, seals, sea turtles, or dolphins. It's about a 2-hour ride each way depending on the weather, but it's so worth the ride! The trip usually lasts for 10 hours, maybe longer if all are ok with it. This is usually your fishing trip of a lifetime!
