Bill prides himself on being a versatile angler and Captain which allows him to make changes in fishery choices & location based on current conditions which will better accommodate the angler. Our trailering ability is just what is needed for Southern New England waters as our rapidly changing fishing and weather conditions will often dictate where we need to launch the boat on any given day.

Most fishing is done with Spin & Fly gear with an emphasis placed on top water action, site fishing, and structure fishing. I will do my best to keep the outing interesting and active, and I also hope that all of my clients have fun and learn something while they're on the water with me.

* Please note that I do not troll, as I think it is boring and lacks excitement. 
All tackle and safety equipment is provided. All anglers are welcome to bring their own tackle subject to inspection by the captain.

it's all about the grab !

I believe that trailering allows me to offer the angler more options based on weather, season, tides, species, and location. I like the flexibility of trailering, as being mobile opens up a lot more opportunities for the angler.

Light Tackle action

Capt. Bill Murphy / Little Rhody Charters 


There is nothing more challenging and exciting than fighting strong fish on light tackle. Bill uses spinning and fly tackle to tangle with the hardest fighting fish in the ocean. Give Bill a call if you want to test your fish fighting skills on light tackle.
