Newport RI has become a destination for saltwater fishing in the last ten years. ArchAngel charters is proud to be named one of the top five charter boats in all of Rhode Island.
Captain Mike has been fishing the waters off of Newport RI, Jamestown and Narragansett Bay since he was a toddler with his father. The fishery off of Newport has exploded the last few years bringing in numerous types of species that are a blast to catch such as trigger fish, Tautog, Scup, Seabass, Bluefish and Striped Bass.
In late May and the month of June, the Bay is a great place to fish for Striped Bass. The small Striped Bass move into Narragansett Bay to feast on herring, squid, and bunker. Larger bass follow later in the month. The biggest bass, some weighing 40 pounds feed primarily on, menhaden, and squid. Smaller fish target smaller baitfish, inside the rivers. In July and August, that’s when you start to see more fishing activity south of Aquidneck Island around Newport RI, off Narragansett all around Block Island.”
Striper fishing remains solid well through June into late September off Newport RI, especially if there are schools of bunker inside the bay. During summer and early fall, dependable action can often be found in the cooler water around the mouth of the bay. I like fishing spots like Beavertail Point, Brenton Reef, and Sakonnet Point, success often depends on fishing live baits or trolling with lead core line.
Fluke, sea bass, porgies, tautog (blackfish), cod, and striped bass are just some of the fish that grace our local waters. They make for a fine catch and an even better meal. Plan your salt water fishing adventure with us today !
