L’il Toot Charters Inc.

40 State St
Narragansett RI, United States

L’il Toot Charters Inc. offers you one of the best selections of trips in the area, targeting every major species and heading back to the harbor with a boatload of tasty fish. Charters range anywhere from 3 to 12 hours, fishing both inshore and offshore at times to suit your schedule. Capt. John Rainone brings 40 years of experience to every trip, making sure you bag a winner.

From May through November, Captain John takes groups out in search of Stripers, Bluefish, Flounder, Fluke, Tautog, Cod, Scup, and much more. You could be fishing the South Shore, Block Island, or many other great spots, depending on where the bite is best.

During the summer months from July through September, you can also head way offshore in search of monster Bluefin Tuna and pelagic Sharks. Makos, Threshers, Blues, and many more toothy predators patrol the deep waters offshore, and Rhode Island Bluefin Tuna fishing is some of the best on the whole Eastern Seaboard.

Enjoy all these trips and more aboard a 35’ custom-built fishing boat. This hardy vessel can carry 6 anglers with ease and is just as at home in the bluewater as the bay. The boat is equipped with high-tech electronics from Garmin, NorthStar, Koden, and Horizon. She has two fighting chairs, outriggers, downriggers, and a livewell full of bait - she’s ready for anything!

The boat is more than just a fishing platform, though. She has a stand-up head, a shower, a small galley, and a cabin to rest after long battles on deck. You will also find comfortable seating below deck and a high flybridge above to take in the view. Even on non-fishing charters, she is large and luxurious enough to make your day very special.

So what are you waiting for? Step aboard and get ready for some incredible fishing with one of the most experienced captains in the state!
