The purpose of the Rhode Island Mobile Sportfishermen (RIMS) is to join in a formal, non-profit organization where individuals interested in the natural beach resources of Rhode Island can work as a group to secure voluntary acceptance and certain rules which will benefit mobile sport-fishing. Additionally to salt water angling, we are committed to work for the proper conservation of water and beaches.
