a fanatic about fishing and gets out on Block Island waters
every chance he can to fish.
Captain Earl loves
Tautog and Flounder fishing in RI.
Captain Earl has been fishing in Rhode Island for over 30 years,
at Block Island and on Narragansett Bay. He came here from
down South and the first thing he did was buy a boat for
fishing, an old wood Bass boat with an inboard engine that was
docked in Greenwich Cove on Narragansett Bay. Those were
the days when GPS and other electronic devices just didnít
exist, and you could only fish for bluefish and flounder due to
Earl Started fishing in New York where he went out on the head
boats there for about $5 a trip (wow). He then moved to Florida
and spent many years there fishing the off the Atlantic coast in
his 23í Chris Craft, travelling out to the edge of the
continental shelf for Mahi Mahi, King Mackerel, Sailfish,
Bonito, Snapper, and other Florida gamefish. Now he enjoys
fishing in Rhode Island for stripers, flounder, tautog, and
other types of fish. His favorite is flounder and tautog
fishing. His favorite way to catch stripers is with Topwater
plugs at Block Island. Nothing beats seeing a big fish explode
on a surface plug, with tail in the air as the fish rolls trying
to smash it.
