Saltwater fishing is a leading sport in Rhode Island with giant bluefish tuna, marlin and swordfish, the prized catches. The Ocean State offers in-shore fishing in protected bay and shoreline areas, in addition to exciting offshore game fishing. Rhode Island is a fisherman’s paradise for the experienced angler and novice. The diversity and abundance of game fish found in Rhode Island waters provides angling excitement throughout the year! Bluefish and Striped Bass are the most common sport fish, both inshore and offshore. The bluefish, considered by many to be the finest fighting fish in the Atlantic, can be caught in May throughout November. For offshore action, anglers can pursue several species of tuna, shark and cod. Also, prized billfish such as white and blue marlin and swordfish are caught annually. What makes Rhode Island offshore fishing so good is its relative closeness to the canyon fishing on the fertile Continental Shelf.
