Reel Addiction Charters

Reel Addiction Charters invites you to relax and have lots of fun catching fish in 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 engine. 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.

The species you can catch include Bass, Mako Shark, Blue Fish, Tautog, Squid, 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 on board.

The captain provides you with all the fishing gear, licenses, drinks, and he’ll also clean and fillet your catch for free. 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!
