Born and Raised on the Umpqua River Tim Abraham is a 6 pac charter who has been sharing his love of fishing with customers for 7 years. He is a TWIC card holder and is very comfortable on the river and the ocean! He is CPR/First aid certified and keeps his boat and gear in top shape to help provide you with the best trip that you can have.
Tim is very knowledgeable. He has no problem taking people of ALL ages and skill levels on the boat. He especially enjoys assisting the rewards of watching a customer catch their first fish! He also has a great sense of humor and lots of stories to keep his customers entertained!
Tim enjoys fishing with his family as much as taking customers out. He also enjoys hunting and spending time with all of his kids.
The Co -Captain
Cole is one of the hardest working deck hands out there. He has been working with his dad since the very fist day! He is as skilled as they come, he does everything from taking the fish off the hooks, getting you rebaited, unsnagged, pulling crab pots, and cleaning the fish. You need anything on your trip all you have to do is say the word and he is there to help! He is a big part of keeping the boat running smoothly when he is not in school.
In the off season he loves to go hunting, fishing and spending as much time out doors as he can.
What folks are saying about winchesterbay charters
I've been out fishing with Tim several times. Each time was a wonderful experience. Not only was it fun, but this man seems to find fish even when nobody else can. If you want a safe fun filled, fish catching adventure, I highly recommend Winchester Bay Charters. You won't find a better captain than Tim Abraham
I have been on several fishing trips with Tim and Cole and it has been a pleasure every time. Tim's knowledge, kindness, and respect for others is second to none. All of his gear is up to date and in working condition to give you the best trip possible and help you land the fish of a lifetime. A trip out with Winchester Bay Charters is a guaranteed good time and a day that you will never forget!!
We found Tim by googling Winchesterbay Bay Fishing Guides. It was a shot in the dark as we don't usually do this an in the past we have always asked friends for a referral. But this time we took a chance. Tim immediately responded and continued to keep me posted as to the fishing conditions. He would not book us just to fill his pockets he wanted to try and make it successful for us. We finally made it out with him. His son Cole is a super deck hand and a great asset to this hard working guide service. Tim, Cole and Annalisa run a quality family run guide service. Winchester Bay Charters is world class, Tim knows his fishing and is more than willing to share that knowledge. I totally recommend Winchesterbay Charters for fishing for Salmon, Bottom fishing and now Tuna!
