Team El Nino Fishing, Williamstown, NJ
Nino Aversa, Ron Redrow, Rob Kessler, Dylan Montgomery & Dennis Shultz
The El Nino Saltwater Fishing Team is based in Southern NJ. They are a group of seasoned anglers with collectively over 40 years’ experience on the water predominately growing up fishing around the waters off Wildwood, Cape May, and Delaware Bay . They fish all facets of saltwater from the back bays to 100 miles offshore. Including many tournaments and a grueling schedule of recreational trips. The team is on the water 10-11 months out of the year as many days that conditions allow. For their team a hobby has turned into a passion that they will keep pursuing for a long time.
The traditional recreational fishermen keeps their boat in a slip for the season or trailers to their local waters. Every year the ELNino a (2320 Parker Pilothouse) stays on the trailer and they tow it to some of the most desirable places to fish on the East Coast. During their season they travel to most common coastal areas from Ocean City Maryland to Raritan Bay, Long Island, and Montauk New York selectively strategizing where the best place fish week to week. Doing so they have established a vast combination of exposure and great relationships with fishermen, charter captains, tackle shops, and tournament directors all throughout the fishing communities. The relationships, the memories, the laughs along the way is what keeps them living the dream.
My name is Chris Johnstone. I have been fishing for what seems my whole life. Started in freshwater as a kid for bass and trout. As I got older,I started to fish the salt,less and less, I fished fresh and then I stopped fishing fresh when I lost all my gear form Sandy. I started kayak fishing 8 years ago and won’t fish any other way. It’s hard to explain but the easiest way is you are one with the water. I catch a lot of slack from people about it, but I can experience things you can’t in a boat or from land. Hooking a big blue that pulls you in circles or a big bass that takes you for a ride. Fluke fishing has always been my favorite to fish for. I found S&S Bucktails about 6 years ago, after trying several different brands and haven’t looked back since. Jig of choice is the
S&S Bigeye Series, tightlines and you see on the water.

I started fishing at about the age 9. About ten years ago, I started fishing the back bays of south jersey. In due time, I became a specialist at catching fluke and blackfish. Now you can catch me fishing both the bays and shores around Atlantic City. My boat runs out of Brigantine and I also fish the surf and the jetties. I was also a guest speaker for the 2019 Salt Water Sportsman National Seminar. I am currently studying to get my captain’s license.
