I grew up on the ocean and work professionally on the water, I have over 20 years working on vessels of all sizes and more than 25 years of fishing experience on the East Coast.
  Winhole charters specializes in light tackle Bay and Ocean Striped bass, fluke, bluefish fishing and We can also accommodate parties of up to 3 people looking to fish for Porgies (Scup), Sea Bass, Striped Bass, Bluefish and False Albacore.
  I started guiding in 2021 and fell in love with teaching people how to fish. I love fishing for striped bass on light tackle. There’s nothing better than seeing a nice fish slam a topwater popper in 3 feet of water. I fish where no other boats usually fish in water as shallow as 1.5 feet deep. So come on out and feel the thrill of catching fish on light tackle!
