Plug N Play Charters

Welcome to Plug N Play Charters website. We're off and running this season with some new tactics for all styles of fishing. Whether you like tossing huge plugs into the rocks for monster Striped Bass or drifting some sea-worms along the bottom for Fluke and Sea Bass we can make it happen. We're also going to be offering some harbor tours and beach picnic excursions this season so Welcome Aboard. All feedback is encouraged.

PNP Updates


Seminars, speaking in front of crowds……I’m not a huge fan to be honest I can’t stand it. Much like Belichick does I avoid the media and lime light and would prefer to just do my thing and be happy in doing so. But I’m not getting any younger and its time to start sharing what I’ve learned with others. So this past weekend I did one and it was received with open arms!

PNP Mid Summer Update

8/08/11 by Corey Pietraszek

Well its hard to believe its already mid August and the halfway point of the 2011 fishing season. We here at Plug N Play Charters have been flat out running trips daily with AMAZING results. We are also proud to announce the newest addition to the family, Capt Matthew Perry is now a USCG Certified Captain and is running trips with PNP full time. I’ve personally had the pleasure of knowing Matt since he was about 10 years old and see his fishing skills broaden with each passing season has brought a smile to my face and seeing him now utilize his fishing skill to offer our patrons a wonderful day on the water is even better. We are delighted to have him working with us and I’m sure anyone who gets the opportunity to go fishing with him will feel the same! Congratulations Matt and Welcome Aboard.

Now to the reports…fishing this season since the early spring has been phenomenal. Since mid June we’ve had what we would say is the best season in many years for bigger bass. PNP just had another awesome top water 53lb bass taken last week which is wonderful news. She was caught by my son which was also great to see and released to fight another day. With that being said the fishing has been amazing in many locations with bass in the 15lb-40lb class taken just about daily all on light tackle. What a season its been guys and we feel the best is yet to come as August and September are usually big fish months for PNP in years past and its sure to follow suit this season. With Capt Matt running trips with us we have decided to put the 21ft Parker back in the water which is easier to trailer, making trips in other locations much easier for both of us. Matt’s been fishing his clients in the RI waters along Newport and has had awesome results. Matt’s recent excursion did well this past weekend with his sports landing over 40 BIG Bluefish in the 12lb-15lb class and nice bass in the 20lb class working the whitewater pockets along Newport and Little Compton. Nice work Capt Matt on your first few trips and I know the clients LOVED IT!

The phone and emails have been pretty steady with questions regarding the small inshore tuna fishery. Right now on the days we can make the trips we have been running south of MA/RI in search of School Bluefin Tuna from 15-60lbs and had mixed results but we are catching. Many other people have also asking about the inshore Bonito and False Albacore bite which could be amazing this year. We are covered with small herring and sand eels in many of the popular haunts for these fish and if the bait holds things could get wild in the next few weeks so be prepared as its any day the Bonito will start up in local spots. If this type of trip is something your considering trying or already have and want to get back out now is the time to book these trips.I usually tell people Labor Day is the starting point for the False Albacore and by the time they contact us to book the good dates are taken. Advanced bookings are highly encouraged and help us greatly and also allows you more time to get better prepared for you trip.

Right now we still have some keys dates open for inshore bass and bluefish which is on fire. We have also diversified some this season and are offering Fluke, Scup, and Sea Bass charters which has been awesome if this is more your speed. The Scup fishing is a “no brainer” right now with hundreds of “dinner plate” sized fish on just about every drop. Overall for us the bottom fishing trips are a wonderful change of pace and are more relaxed at times versus tossing big lures into the rocks. Even better is we have noticed we are seeing a more “family oriented” fishery which means getting the younger ones out for some recreational fishing and what better way to teach a youngster to fish then a tight line on every drop with a Scup, Sea Bass or even a Fluke on the end of the line. Happy Times!
Well if your already scheduled with with us for the 2011 “Fall Run” awesome and if booking with us is something you’ve want to do now is the time so please let us know as we have plenty of open dates left with the recent addition of Capt Matt to the rooster. If this first half is any indication to what’s to come we here at PNP feel the 2nd half of this summer season could be “off the hook”. If you have any questions or just want to say hello drop us a call or email and don’t forget to “become a fan” on the PNP Facebook page. We will be offering discounted trips, rate specials, fishing updates, etc using the Facebook Page for all our fans to hope on board!
