Megabite Fishing Charters – Groton

Bayside Avenue
Groton CT, United States

If you are looking for some great inshore and nearshore fishing then Megabite Charters is the perfect match for you. Captain Jason Sawicki has decades of fishing experience, to get you on your targeted fish during the season.

You will spend the day on a 22’ Mako center console. She is mobile, fast, and agile, and is perfectly suited for Capt. Jason’s style of fishing. This beautiful vessel also boasts a smooth ride and quiet engine.

She is equipped with full navigational and safety equipment. Capt. Jason has the brilliant MO of “be safe, have fun, and then catch fish.” You can be sure you are in capable hands with him.

Everyone is more than welcome on these trips. You do not need experience, as Capt. Jason will show you the ropes. Kids can come fish too, as long as they are over eight years old. Parents will need to bring appropriate life vests for the little ones with them.

Live bait is generally caught before the trip, so you can spend maximum time fishing. All gear is supplied. You will use top notch rods and reels by Quantum, Fin-Nor and Sage Fly. This gives you the best opportunity to reel in the fish once hooked. Your gear definitely won’t let you down.

You will target a range of fish, such as Striped Bass, Bluefish, Flounder, Bluefin Tuna, Bonito, and many more. Capt. Jason is a strong advocate of catch and release, but for those that you keep he is happy to fillet for you on the shore after the trip. A small token of appreciation for this service is always welcomed.

Water is provided, but you will need to bring a packed lunch with you. This can be stored in the coolers on board. Space is limited on the vessel, so please bring only what is needed.

Capt. Jason can’t wait to welcome you on board soon.

An amazing trip with an experienced Captain.  I have fished on many trips throughout the globe, and Captain Sawicki was, by far, the best.  He was prepared,and educated on the hot spots.  He made us feel like we were fishing with family.  I recommend him to everyone.  I will definitely be a repeat customer.
