River Rebel Charters - Point Judith

River Rebel Charters offers fishing trips out of Point Judith, Rhode Island. They operate out of the Point Judith Marina, an active fishing port with some of the most beautiful beaches in Rhode Island. Captain Randy will take you fishing for Striped Bass, Seabass, Fluke, and many other species in comfort and style.

Step aboard a spacious 26’ Albin express cruiser, which comes powered by a 260 HP Volvo Diesel engine. It has a maximum cruising speed of 30 knots and provides comfortable fishing space for up to four anglers. The vessel is wheelchair-accessible and comes fully rigged with safety equipment and modern navigational electronics, as well as a live bait tank and an ice-box for the refreshments and the catch. Inside, there is a toilet and a shower for your maximum comfort.

Whether it’s fishing around the lighthouse or the waters of Narragansett, a trip to Rhode Island Sound or Block Island, your day out with Captain Randy will leave you with lifelong memories. If you want to target Striped Bass, the best method is to drift fish with live bait or light tackle cast at the bustling schools. If it’s Fluke that you are after, than jigging and bottom fishing are the best choice. Your other targeted species will include Seabass, Scup, Mahi-Mahi, Bluefish, and even Mako, Thresher, and Blue Sharks.

A fishing trip with Captain Randy doesn’t require a license. You will be provided with quality rods, reels, tackle, lures, and bait. If you decide to keep the catch, it will be cleaned and filleted after the trip so that you could fill the freezer back home. Just bring your favorite drinks, food, and welcome aboard.

If you already have a date in mind, check the captain’s calendar for openings, get your group together, and get ready for your next angling adventure!
