About Captain Dick Chatowsky and The Drifter Too

Come fish Rhode Island waters in a Safe and Relaxing manner on the Drifter Too.

Richard began his fishing addiction in 1957 as a member of the Scituate Saltwater anglers club and fished from shore for many years, leading the club in points for fish caught from both shore and boat.   In 1963 he got his first boat, a 16í Boston Whaler with a 125hp Johnson outboard.  He would leave from work at the end of the day 3 or 4 times a week and take this little boat out to Block Island in the summer to fish, with nothing but a compass, watch, and a flasher (a primitive depth finding device).  He was very successful, catching many stripers, bluefish, and cod with this boat.

In 1969 Dick traded up to an Eldridge-McGuiness wooden bass boat, and started fishing offshore for school and giant tuna.  He was so successful, people started asking him to take them out and suggested getting a captainís license and doing charters, so in 1970 he got his license and ran charters with the Bass boat (the first Drifter).  The next Drifter was a 28í Pearson in 1975.  In 1983 he purchased a unfurnished hull and finished it as the 37í custom sportfishing boat Drifter and fished it for many years.  In 1999 he purchased the current Drifter Too as a project boat, and refurbished it in his off time and then began using that boat for charters starting in 2006, fishing out of Jimís Dock on Point Judith Pond.

Dick has many years of fishing and boating behind him and has the knowledge and skill needed to provide you with a successful fishing trip.

Nice Block Island Bass.
