We are ready to fish.....Are You???
Big Boy Sport Fishing Charters has been family owned and operated for over 30 years. We pride ourselves on giving our fellow anglers the ultimate fishing charter. Captain Duane Sousa, Jr. has been deep sea fishing Rhode Island Sound and Block Island Sound for Striped Bass and Blues, Tuna, Shark, Black Sea Bass, Scup, Flounder, and Cod and specializes in customized Deep Sea Fishing Charters. We have full and half day trips, and offer inshore and offshore fishing charters. Big Boy Charters proudly offers Military Discounts, and Police and Fire Discounts. We are glad to accommodate Corporate Charters, Bachelor Parties, Family Fishing Trips, and much more, and are able to handle most any size group, including parties larger than six people. We are fully licensed, insured, and Coast Guard Inspected.
We take pride in our vessels and equipment and have all safety equipment on board. Our trips are all inclusive - we provide rods, reels, bait, tackle, licenses, etc. - just bring your food and drink and we take care of everything else. Our First Mates will look after your fishing needs all day - then clean and filet your catch at the end of the day. They gladly pass on their knowledge of fishing techniques to you- whether trolling for Striped Bass or bottom fishing for Summer Flounder, Scup and Sea Bass - and the Captain and Mate will keep you on the fish and make sure your time on the water with us is a memorable one.
Although we realize that our first priority is your safety and well-being, as well as a cooler full of fish by the end of your trip, we have long believed that our job is also to impart our love of the waters of Block Island Sound - our passion for fishing, and our realization that nothing else besides time on the water can help you regroup and soothe you soul like a day of fishing - we learned a long time ago that "Old School" works and that "Water is Life". Nothing beats a day on the water with family and friends - and seeing that rod bend over, with line peeling and the Captain yelling "Fish On"!
We are conveniently located in Narragansett Rhode Island in the Port of Galilee. Parking for you and your crew is free. Call us so we can help customize a fishing Charter aboard the Big Boy II - a 30 foot Chris Craft complete with a full cabin, private head and large cockpit for plenty of fishing in comfort - and get to the fishing grounds quickly with our twin turbo Penninsular diesel engines - so you spend your time on the water fishing, and not just taking a boat ride.
From our family to yours....Let's Go Fishing!!
Captain William Duane Sousa, Jr. has been chartering for over thirty years. His fishing career began in Newport at the “Forty Steps” with his father. His first vessel was a 1956 Chris Craft that he worked and lived on - a tried and true Rhode Island Fisherman. Today Big Boy sport fishing charters operates a thriving summer fishing business out of Galilee, Rhode Island, Pt. Judith, also known as Narragansett Rhode Island, which is only a half hour from Newport Rhode Island, as well as a winter fishing business in Southwest Florida. By having two locations - and two comfortable and safe boats, Captain Sousa and his guests can enjoy deep sea fishing all year long. The Captain’s guests will be the first to tell you that you can’t find a more knowledgeable Captain who will accommodate your deep sea fishing needs for your Rhode Island or Southwest Florida charter.
Captain Sousa and his son and First Mate Jason Sousa target all the fish species that the cool waters off the coast of Rhode Island have to offer - Shark, Tuna, Striped Bass, Blue Fish, Tautog, Black Sea Bass, Scup, and Flounder, just to name a few. Their 30 foot Chris Craft, the pride of the fleet, is fast, safe, comfortable and reliable. Complete with fly bridge, full cabin, head, and large cockpit, guests fish in comfort - everything is included for those who board the Big Boy II - rods, reels, bait, tackle, ice, licenses, etc. Just jump on board and get ready for a great fishing expedition. Whether a novice fisherman, or a seasoned veteran, Captain and crew will put you on the fish.
Our Florida vessel is a 24’ Sea Pro that will get you offshore fishing in the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico where you can try your hand at the many species the Gulf offers up - Tarpon, Grouper, Kings, Barracuda, Sheepshead, Red Fish, Snook, Snapper, Tuna and Shark - just to name a few.
Both vessels are equipped with radar, VHS Radio, GPS, and all other necessary electronics, and vessels are licensed and Coast Guard inspected. Safety has been and will continue to be the Captain and crews first priority.
Whether Deep Sea fishing off the coast of Rhode Island, or offshore fishing in the Gulf of Mexico, Southwest Florida, Big Boy Sport Fishing Charters will make your adventure one to be remembered.
