Captain
Tommy Kampa

Member since January 2017 Port Washington, United States
Background
Captain Tommy has fished the local waters for over 40 years and specializes in live-lining for Striped Bass, and light tackle Blackfishing with jigs. He loves taking out families with children whom he teaches how to bait their hooks, use the tackle, different techniques for hooking fish and handling the fish. Captain Tommy has caught Striped Bass over 60 pounds and Blackfish over 12 pounds, plus many jumbo Fluke, Bluefish, Black Sea Bass, and Porgies! Experts to beginners will enjoy their charters with Capt. Tommy, as he is a friendly, outgoing person that enjoys fishing and making sure his customers have a great, fun, safe experience on the water.
Techniques
I like to use live Bunker for Striped Bass; it’s a very exciting way to fish because the anglers get to see and hear the Stripers attacking the Bunker. We will also “chunk” and “flatline” for Stripers as conditions warrant. When Blackfishing I prefer to fish shallow waters and “jig” with light spinning tackle. This method is a lot of fun and we have caught some really big “Togs” using this method; when the Blackfish move deeper we also use more traditional methods. I like to “Bucktail” for Fluke, using custom rods built by me specifically for this method, utilizing 15 pound test line. We use only the freshest bait and always have plenty! We will keep your Fish iced on the boat and filleted to your specifications when the day is done.
