About Us

I can teach reading a tide chart, why the wind direction is important and how to make the best decision on choosing a lure. For the novice, we can start by tying a knot and go to the phases of the moon. For the  accomplished fishermen, I can share some old methods passed down to me, that continue to work as well as all the most up to date suggestions for terminal tackle. I have fished every nook and cranny of the Vineyard and can teach you to target the most productive fishing spots. You will know not only "how" but also "why" you are fishing on a particular area of beach. Although I can not guarantee fish, I can promise a memorable experience roaming the shoreline of the Vineyard.
