Captain Bill Toelstedt Born in Oceanside, NY in 1973, Capt. Bill grew up fishing the waters of the Great South Bay on the south shore of Long Island, NY. There he spent his days fishing with his dad and grandfather in a small wooden Garvy they had built by hand. Targeting fluke, founder, weakfish and mackerel …he was hooked!
In 1987, he co-owned his first boat with his grandfather and for the next eight years logged countless hours as a commercial shell fisherman. Although the clams and profits were plentiful the experience and “time on the water” would prove to be much more valuable.
In 1991, Capt. Bill was off to college at nearby Fairfield University in Connecticut. With the resurgence of the striped bass and the Long Island Sound less than a mile away, he could often be found working the shorelines between classes. Graduating in 1995, it was then that he arrived on Nantucket…
Like many others, it did not take him long to fall in love with Nantucket. The seemingly endless miles of beaches and surf was paradise. With the help of a local friend and commercial fisherman he caught more striped bass than ever before.
In the summer of 1996 he was hired by local fly fishing legend and guide the late Capt. Paul Doyle. By the spring of 97’ Bill had earned his captains license and began guiding clients to the rips, shoals, and flats off the west end of Nantucket. Today, with over ten years of full-time guiding experience under his belt, Capt. Bill looks foreward to new challenges as he begins his new venture …”Nantucket Outfitters”.
The diversity of fishing opportunities on Nantucket Island is tremendous. Whether you enjoy fly fishing for striped bass in the crystal clear waters of the Tuckernuck flats or casting a plug into the white water of Nantucket shoals, the conditions are never identical. Therefore, Capt. Bill feels that every fishing trip is unique and hopes to provide you with an experience to remember.
