About L'il Toot Charters
Captain John Rainone
"I take great pride in giving our anglers an exciting fun-filled day of fishing and a safe, comfortable, relaxing trip." - Captain John Rainone
I have been a charter boat captain for over 31 years, and have experience in catching every species of fish from flounder to giant blue fin tuna. I have been known to grab my fishing rod and sneak in-between my customers to wet a line and catch a few fish. I do this because I love to fish, and enjoy being out on the water where every day brings fun, excitement and memories of great times shared between my customers, my mate and myself.
I participate in the NMFS Shark & Tuna Tagging Programs as well as the American Littoral Society Striped Bass Tagging Program. I have been President of the Rhode Island Party & Charter Boat Association for many years, and am a member of the Tautog & Enforcement Advisory Panels for the State of Rhode Island's Marine Fisheries Council. I am co-editor of the Rhode Island Fishing magazine and have written and supplied many articles and photos for the magazine.
