New Trip Options for 2017!

Happy Fishing Season Everyone! I am so excited that 2017 is underway and seeing stripers being caught and released during their migration is truly a sight for sore eyes! As PGS enters it’s 9th year in RI (18 years overall), we see a need for a new type of trip option – The Executive Charter.

Let me explain. There are only so many hours in a day that we can work, spend time with our loved ones and take care of day to day operations. Sometimes, a half day fishing trip just does not fit into that lifestyle, let along a 13 hour tuna trip! Trust me, with 2 boys ages 4 and 1, I am right there with you!

Here at PGS, we promote a work life balance. You have to, it’s the only way anyone can survive the rat race society calls life. I would like to change some of that by offering The Executive Charter. Now this is not just for “Executive professionals”. It is for anyone who has to make that executive decision that they can’t take a vacation day to go fishing due to other responsibilities.

The trips will be approximately 2 hours before or after work. Typically, we would leave the dock around 4:30 am and return by 6:30/7:00 am, just in time to put on our blue or white collar shirts and punch the time clock (sometimes literally). I am also going to offer evening trips from 6:30 pm until 8:30-9:00 pm.

So where is the catch? It’s right here: All trips will be catch and release and either plug fishing or fly fishing only. 2 Anglers Maximum. The majority of time to catch bait is eliminated so we just focus on fishing. For me, there is no time added to the end of the trip for cleaning the boat or fish. It’s a win-win for everyone..including the fish!

So when some people say there are not enough hours in the day to play, here at PGS we say it is all about how we play in the hours we have! Good luck this season and enjoy the video link below!
