Captain
John Rainone

Member since July 2015 Narragansett, United States
Background
Captain John Rainone is one of the most experienced and capable captains in Rhode Island. He has been running charters for four decades and was President of the RI Party & Charter Boat Association for over a quarter of a century. Captain John became a fisherman because he enjoyed fishing and wanted to establish a 2nd career. My customers enjoy fishing on L'il Toot and most become like family. There is no stress, yelling, or fear on L'il Toot. Capt. John and his mates are professionals that enjoy helping you catch fish and enjoying your day on the water. We cater to experienced fishermen as well as novice, women, children and families. Capt. might even cool up some of the fish you catch so you can see how good they are to eat. Just ask the Capt. any questions you have and you both will put together a great memory that will last a lifetime.
Techniques
I enjoy all types of fishing in Salt Water, but especially love tuna fishing and bottom fishing.
