Priority Fishing Charters

33 State Street
Narragansett RI, United States

Priority Fishing Charters invites you to experience world class Striped Bass and offshore fishing from Southern New England’s Rhode Island. This is the closest port to the best fishing grounds the East Coast has to offer. Avoid the Montauk and Cape Cod traffic, check out Point Judith on Rhode Island.

You will fish with an experienced Captain and crew who will provide you with a safe and productive day on the water. Captain Rick started fishing when he was just 10 years old, operating his 12-foot wooden skiff around Narragansett Bay and targeting shellfish and winter Flounder.

Their 36 foot Harris Downeast boat, originally built in 1977, and restored in 2013 is powered by a 430 HP Cummins engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 16 knots. The boat is safe and sturdy on the chop and will take you to the best fishing spots with ease. It contains the necessary electronic and safety equipment such as life jackets, a fishfinder and a host of other features.

Priority Fishing Charters will take you fishing for Striped Bass which is a prized catch due to its good game and food qualities. You can also catch Bluefish, Fluke, Black Seabass, Sharks, and if you venture further still you will have a chance to target Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Bonito, and Cod.

You will have all the fishing gear included in the form of rods, reels, tackle, bait and even a first mate to help you with your catch. The mate will also clean and fillet your fish so make sure you tip them as they work for gratuities.
