Captain
John Paduano

Member since October 2016 Montauk, United States
Background
In addition to running a charter business, Captain John is a seminar speaker and outdoor writer. He specializes in light tackle fishing for all species and has developed a new fishing technique known as "snap jigging". He is happy to share his vast wealth of knowledge with all those who would like to learn more about fishing.
Techniques
I like to use light tackle. The fisherman gets a more enjoyable time when light tackle fishing. I developed the snap jigging technique and can teach it to you on my charter. It is a highly effective way to catch most game fish.I also have other original techniques for different species, all very effective and fun. If you are into fly fishing, I can accommodate you depending on the time of year. Offshore fishing has us casting poppers and jigs to tuna over trolling.
