Like us on FacebookBig Game Sport Fishing was established in Snug Harbor Rhode Island in 2008 by USCG licensed Captains Brian Bacon, Captain Peter Bacon and Shamus Mara.

Brian, Peter and Shamus have been fishing the Southern Rhode Island waters for the better part of their lives and have a combined experience of over 70 years fishing these waters. The Big Game crew has a true passion for the thrill of the hunt, love for the ocean and putting fish in the box! Fishing from inshore, to the canyons, the Big Game team uses a number of proven tactics in targeting the variety of species the Rhode Island waters have to offer.

Over the years, Big Game has either won or placed in many inshore and offshore fishing tournaments and has a proven track record for putting big fish on the boat. Our sponsors include: Fin-Nor Tackle and Quantum Pro Staff, Crafty One Customs Rods, Skurge Of The Sea harpoons and gaffs, XTRATUF and Ron Z lures Pro Staff. The Big Game team actively participates in the NMFS Shark tagging program and the Billfish tagging program.

Brian, Peter and Shamus are all professional captains and crew, all a pleasure to fish with, who love catching not fishing, and understand that they are not only a charter business but also in the entertainment business. They always have fun being on the water and putting people on fish! They want to provide their customers with a memorable experience and the fishing trip of a lifetime.
When Choosing a Charter Service...
There is a big difference in charter services, boats and Captains. How they are rigged, techniques used and skill levels determine a successful fishing day.

No other Rhode Island charter service operates quite like we do. We use all top of the line fishing tackle, no expense is spared. All of our tackle is maintained throughout the season and much of it is replaced annually as it gets warn out. We use live bait & light tackle. We are rigged and ready to fish for any situation that arises on the water! You will not be charged extra for live bait.

The majority of the Charter fishing fleet cruises between 10 - 16 knots to save fuel. We cruise to the fishing grounds at 22 knots! Which means, we're not afraid to burn more fuel to get you to the fishing grounds faster. This means more time fishing and less time traveling.

We want all our anglers to be successful on the water. We pride ourselves in teaching our anglers, especially children, to fish the Southern New England waters using the most successful techniques. From children to adults, we understand there are different levels of experience when it comes to fishing. Our Captains and mates will guide and coach even the most novice anglers with patience.

The Big Game Fishing Team has developed, through years of experience, unique fishing techniques that consistently produce better catches, both inshore and offshore.

Group PhotoBig Game sails 7 days a week from the end of May through November. We run an average of 130 charters per year, 75% of our charters are repeat customers. Our Captain and Mate's combined fishing experience is over 50 years.

Our charter numbers have increased in the past two years, even with the poor economy.

We want to make ourselves the best and your favorite Charter service in Rhode Island, Period.

The Big Game is a 32 ft. fishing machine. It has a tuna tower and provides a safe and stable ride. We will make your fishing experience an Adventure of a Lifetime, instead of a costly nightmare. In other words, if the bite is off, or if the weather looks bad, we'll give you the option to go fish, or reschedule. If we can't reschedule, we will refund your deposit in full. We don't want to bring you for a "Costly Boat Ride." We want to provide our customers with a wonderful fishing experience. We want our customers to have fun, come back and fish with us again!

The Big Game is well maintained and has a full head. She's clean, fast and stable. We are professional captains and crew, all a pleasure to fish with, who love catching not fishing, and who understand that we are not only a charter business but also in the entertainment business. We always have fun whether the fish are biting or not.

There is a big difference when choosing your charter service. We hope you will make the right choice and fish on The Big Game!
