Coastal Charters Sportfishing is a full-time fishing outfit for serious fisherman, specializing in light tackle jigging and popping methods. Captain Dom Petrarca has been chasing big offshore tuna, sharks and other pelagics for over 20 years in and around the waters of Southern New England. Operating a fast and stable run-and-gun style center console (Dusky 256 FC), Capt. Dom will trailer to any of the available ramps in Southern New England closest to the best fishing grounds. This maximizes your fishing time, and decreases your transit times offering the best chances to hook that fish of a lifetime.
Coastal Charters Sportfishing limits offshore trips to a maximum of 4 anglers and does not carry a mate, which decreases cost and allows more room for your fishing party. This also provides a much more hands on experience, getting you right into the action and the entire catch process from hunting and hooking to landing or releasing the many large game fish that abound in Southern New England waters. Coastal Charters Sportfishing offers both private and open boat trips, from April through late November. Canyon runs and trips to the offshore grounds past 60 miles are available based on conditions and season. These trips are usually 14-30 hours in length, and pricing is custom.
Coastal Charters Sportfishing also specializes in spring jigging for cod and other bottom fish off Stellwagen Bank and Southern Rhode Island, spring squid and autumn blackfish for up to 5 anglers. Other inshore fishing trips include striped bass, bluefish, and fluke, in addition to non-fishing excursions.
