Customer sent us a photo of him and his buddy out flyfishing in their wooldridge boats! Gean has the 17' windshield model and his buddy John has the 17' center console model. Both great boats to get through the shallows and up to your secret fishing hole!

It’s great to get pictures from customers around the country and the world! Bob here is no exception. Bob has a 20’ Wooldridge Sport Center Console that he uses out on the Great Lakes to hunt fowl and slay fish! Powered by a #Yamaha 200 VMAX the Sport is great for running the rivers, but also has what it takes to tackle the challenging fast changing weather conditions the Great Lakes region is known for.

Our friend and customer Matt Wilken sent us some great photos of him and some buddy’s recent trip on the Yukon River. They made the 200 mile run up for a moose hunting excursion (each way). Matts words: “ Well, another successful hunting season in the books. This is of course largely due to the fact that we have the right tools for the job. The boats performed flawlessly and continue to impress us with their hauling capacities, fuel efficiency and comfort.
- Matt

NIce versatility in a Wooldridge.

Traveled 140+ miles RT down in Mexican waters where we limited out in one stop. Landed 14 fish on bait after a jig strike. Had a newbie to tuna fishing who lost 8 fish before he landed his first one then proceeded to catch his limit. Later we caught some nice bonita.

Put a 120 miles round trip to fish the outer Channel Islands (Santa Rosa Island) to do some nice rockfishing in about 300'. Mostly reds (vermillion) and some chuckles (copper). Flat fish is a rock sole not a halibut. Did not fish for limits.

Great photo sent to us from Kevin of his 12’ Wooldridge DH(dual hull). These were great little multi use boats that with their duel-hull design offered incredible performance! Who would like to see us make these again?

Ran out between fronts. Put 128 miles round trip on the boat. Fishing kind of tough for myself but not bad for the other two. Friend is holding a nice Copper aka Chucklehead. Bottom pic is what we kept and tossed back maybe a dozen short or barely legal lingcod and a bunch of other rockfish.
Used a descending device which hopefully worked but no way to know for sure. Fished 275-325' on the backside of Santa Rosa Island.

Beautiful inside an out restoration on this 26’ super sport offshore pilothouse. Years of guiding had taken its toll on this old gal before the current owners threw her some much needed TLC. Hard work pays off! Looks great guys!

Took a 140 mile trip out to Santa Rosa Island. Started at the backside where it was colder and rougher and finished on the front side where it was much nicer. Felt good to get out of the overcast and wind. Can't really tell but there was some swell too on the backside and did I mention cold? The two that came out with me were wearing shorts and regretted that.

Funny story about that 28" ling in the picture. After taking pics and bleeding it we tossed it in a trashcan with other fish. Tossed more water in and the ling went crazy and jumped out of the trashcan and back into the water. Gone just like that. Buddy thought it might float and I said no way it ain't coming back up.

Going to Flaming Gorge in less than 3 weeks. Will post some pics (hopefully) of some Kokes we target.

Kid had never even fished before. Notice how his legs are bent to keep balance.

Took our yearly trip to Flaming Gorge in WY. Water level was high and the wind was an issue 2 of the 3 days we fished (pic is of the 2nd day coming back to the marina). 3rd day we only fished a couple of hours as we had to start heading home due to an unexpected medical issue at home. On top of that the dog got sick (drinking lake water, go figure) and had to take her to the Vet at 4:00 a.m. on Wed. As it turned out Wed. was the nicest day.

Not the best at taking pictures. A few from the trip. Had the pin bolts come out (no idea how) between Beaver UT and Vegas and that's what the pads looked like when I pulled them out in front of a .99 Store at 6:30 in the morning. Had to hammer out the caliper as it was wedged pretty good in the wheel. Forgot the bolts for both downriggers! Used screw drivers and alan wrench to keep it on then wrapped in tape to keep them in place. It worked! Hit something hard on the road in that last pic. No idea what it was.
