Coastal Charters Sportfishing is a full-time fishing outfit for serious fisherman, specializing in light tackle jigging and popping with artificial lures for bluefin tuna. 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. Captain Diogo Godoi is joining the fleet alongside Captain Dom in the 2016 season. Both captains are operating fast and stable run-and-gun style center consoles (SeaVee 29B and Dusky 278FC). They 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 throughout the entire catch process, from hunting and hooking to landing or releasing. Coastal Charters Sportfishing offers both private and open boat trips, from April through late November. Offshore trips from 60 miles to the Canyons for both day and overnight 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 inshore fishing trips for up to 4 anglers. This includes jigging for ground fish off Stellwagen Bank; spring squid, scup, and black sea bass; and spring and autumn blackfish. Early summer inshore fishing trips include striped bass, bluefish, and fluke. We also accommodate other non fishing excursions. Please send us some information about what type of trip you would like via email or call us directly so we can custom tailor the fishing trip of a lifetime for you and your group today.
