About JoAnn & Capt. Jack Riley
(IGFA Certified Captain)
JoAnn and I have
returned to Snug Harbor, RI to fish the
same waters we enjoyed twenty five years
ago. We love the Cape but the two hour drive
door to door on good traffic days has taken
the bloom off the rose.
For the past 20 summers JoAnn and I have commercial, sport,
and charter fished the East Cape and Islands out of Harwich
Port, Ma. Prior to that
we fished the offshore waters south of
Nantucket, Martha's Vineyard, Block Island,
and Montauk out of Pt. Judith, R.I. Jack has been a lifelong resident of Rhode Island
leaving only for a tour of duty as a U.S. Army officer during the Vietnam period after graduation from the University of Rhode Island.
He is a certified U.S. Coast Guard Captain, a member of the
National Association Of Charterboat
and the IGFA. As both mate and angler, Jack
has won and placed in the Block Island
Billfish, Rhode Island Tuna, and Point
Judith Masters Invitational Tuna
JoAnn earned a B.A. degree
from Wheaton College, MA and an MBA from the
University of R.I. JoAnn has won the Allen Harbor "Shoot Out"
Fourth of July tournament every year she has
participated on the Maverick.
JoAnn and I have enjoyed fishing the offshore waters of Rhode Island and Cape Cod, Massachusetts for striped bass, bluefish, sharks,
marlin, yellowfin and bluefin tuna for over 35 years.
We are both easy-going and very flexible when it comes to your sport fishing adventures on the "Maverick". Please let
us know if you have any special requests to make your trip more enjoyable. Our team of professionals
Capt. Jack and JoAnn look forward to meeting you.

Rhode Island or Cape Cod Charter Fishing
The most important thing that you can do in planning a sportfishing charter is to tell your potential Captain what you are looking for in a trip. This discussion should include:
The fishing experience and skill of your party.
The species of gamefish you want to target and the order of their importance to you.
The preferred fishing gear type (spin, fly, or conventional).
Any medical conditions a member of the party may have.
Are any members of the party prone to seasickness (precautions should be taken in advance, not during the charter. We have many helpful suggestions for this.).
Any special requests that may be needed or desired (Can your potential charter and Captain provide these requests?).
In selecting a Cape
Cod charter boat tell them exactly what you
want and expect. Ask the right questions and
you will have a safe, memorable, enjoyable
trip. Contact us for additional information
