Magazine logoThe bible of saltwater fishing, Saltwater Sportsman, has put Capt. Pagano on the cover of their magazine many times, and have published several feature stories on his striped bass and shark fishing accomplishments.

I have been guiding for over thirty-eight years. I enjoy sharing my striper fishing techniques and my boat with people interested in the outdoors, and I am sure you will have a great time fishing Rhode Island with me.  I'll give you the joy of a fun, challenging, and well managed striper fishing trip."

I have guided fishermen from around the world, including striped bass fly fishing guru Lefty Kreh, Rhode Island’s Gov. Don Carcieri, and other celebrities. My clients have reeled in trophy stripers, sharks, tuna, and several other types of saltwater fish. I give every customer the opportunity to catch their fish of a lifetime.

In 1991, Captain Pagano caught the second largest fish in the world ever landed by rod and reel! It was a 2,909 pound, 15 1/2-foot long Great White Shark. (see the "shark" page).

Don't expect to catch a one-ton fish on the average trip, but year in and year out his clients land over 650 striped bass weighing over 20 pounds, as well as dozens of stripers that are 40+ and 50+ pounds, and hundreds of striped bass in the 10 to 20 pound range. Seventy-five percent of these stripers and other fish were released after their capture.

Share the challenges and beauty of Rhode Island and the New England coastal waters with Joe on your next striper fishing adventure. Ask him about his "guaranteed keeper striped bass" trips, too.  Fish with Rhode Island's top striper fishing guide and fishing charter service!
