The 2010 Tautog fishing in Narraganset Bay and Newport area Reefs was extremely productive despite all the reports of the declining stock in this fishery. Captain Sheriff is looking forward to another great season. While these are a great fighting fish to catch, the typical charter season for Tautog's will be in the fall where limits are increased making it more feasible to potential clients. There is a possibility that the information below may be subject to change.
