L'il Toot Charters
Captain John Rainone - I am a licensed Masters-100 ton U.S.C.G. Captain and have been a charter boat captain for over 35 years. I 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.
Fishing - We offer 1/2, 3/4 and full days. Twilight and Night trips. Inshore or Offshore fishing for Cod, Striped Bass, Blues, Fluke, Sea Bass, Scup, Blacks, Bonito, Mahi-Mahi, Shark, and Tuna.
