ThomCat RI Fishing Charters
Come Fishing in RI with the ThomCat Charters.
Enjoy catching Summer Flounder and other inshore gamefish along the Rhode Island South Shore with ThomCat Charters.
ThomCat's Rhode Island fishing charters specializes in fluke fishing combination trips. Although we always target fluke, we can customize your trip to include visits to some of the nearby Striped bass and Bluefish haunts along the south shore like Deep Hole and Point Judith light house near Galilee. Or we can go straight to the fluking grounds, its up to you. While flounder fishing we may encounter the likes of Sea bass, Scup, Striped Bass, Bluefish, and Weakfish (Squeteague). In the late season Bonito and False Albacore can make an appearance as well. When the later show up on the surface we will be ready and able to challenge them. I also offer Fall trips targeting Blackfish, Bonito and False Albacore. We use top-shelf equipment like reels from Penn, Quantum, and Abu Garcia, and rods from Shakespeare and Seeker. You can also bring your own outfits if you wish, but no more than two per angler.
About the Captain.
Capt. Thom has been fishing Narragansett Bay and the Rhode Island south shore for over 40 years and has written numerous articles on fishing in Rhode Island for On the Water, The Fisherman, Saltwater Sportsman, Nor'east Saltwater, and Northeast Boating magazine. Thom also markets his own line of Fluke rigs via ThomCat Tackle. These rigs are proven fluke-killers, and could only have been designed by someone who has spent years on the water studying that species' habits, as Thom has. He is widely recognized as one of the premier authorities on fluke fishing in Rhode Island.
Due to the state of the economy and with the increase in fuel cost we've decided to raise our prices for 2011. These RI prices will remain for as long as costs allow.

About the Boat & what to bring with you.
The boat is a 21í SeaHunt Center Console. You may want to bring drinks and some snacks, depending on how long we are going to be out. A hat, sunscreen, and long-sleeved shirt or sweatshirt might be good. Soft, non-marking soles on your footwear is required. The Boat can comfortably accommodate up to two anglers and the captain. Please keep in mind that storage space is limited so try not to bring too much stuff.
"It is my sincere hope that a trip with me
will provide an enlightening and entertaining experience for each angler
as well as an opportunity to tangle with some of Southern New England's
top quality inshore game fish...... Catch'em up!"
