L’il Toot Charters Inc.

Narragansett RI, United States

Capt. John Rainone has been chartering for over 37 years, was the President of the RI Party and Charter Boat Association for over 25 yrs. and was involved in advisory panels with the RI Fishery council for many years.

We fish for many different species of fish.  Cod, Blues, Striped Bass, Scup(Porgies), Black Sea Bass, Fluke(Summer Flounder), Tautog(Blackfish), Tuna, Bonito, Shark, Mahi-Mahi. We love to introduce families and youngsters to the sport of fishing, and also can give moms some tips on how to cook the fish they catch. I even cook up some of the fish on the boat so you can try it. 

The boat is a safe, comfortable, clean vessel, and the electronics and rods and reels are top notch. I also have a first mate on board to assist you all day and to clean and fillet your fish.

Caught big (32-35 lb) striper off SE corner of Block Island; then went to other side of island and caught 5 porgies, 5 fluke, and 3 nice Black Sea bass. Great trip all around. Boat was fast & well equipped.  1st mate kept all 6 busy and filleted everything.

We trolled around and caught a mix of Striped Bass and Blues. Then we went bottom fishing and caught some Fluke and Sea Bass. Had many throwbacks on the fluke due to the 19" size limit, and the Sea… Read Full Report →
