Mike Cardinal, owner/operator, has enjoyed recreational fishing in Rhode Island for more than 50 years. After retirement in 2006, Mike worked for other bait & tackle shops. But, his passionfor fishing, and his desire to offer personal attention and time to his customers prompted Mike to open his own shop using the Cardinal family name. Stop in & visit Mike for a free cup of coffee or just some "fish talk."
