Captain Tyler Nonn &
The Tidewater Story
Tidewater Charters is owned and operated by Captain Tyler Nonn. Since establishing the company in 2009, Tyler’s guide services specialize in Chesapeake Bay Fly Fishing and Chesapeake Bay Light Tackle fishing for striped bass, redfish, and cobia in the Chesapeake Bay. Other offerings outside of the Eastern Shore include guide services out of the Florida Keys.
Tyler’s philosophy as a guide is to move with the fish – from December to March Tidewater Charters skip out on the cold waters of the East and bases guided trips out of the Florida Keys. Most time is spent around Big Pine Key targeting sailfish, blackfin tuna, cobia, tarpon, kingfish and more.
Starting in April Tyler and Tidewater return to the Eastern Shore to capitalize on the giant migratory striped bass that invade the upper Chesapeake Bay for their annual spring spawning run. Although water temperatures rise in May, Tyler continues the pursuit of striped bass and guides from the lower Chesapeake Bay to the coastal waters of Virginia.
Tyler proudly equips anglers of any age or skill for success during a trip. Offering all top-notch equipment for their use that day. Most guide trips Tyler offers are suitable for two anglers but can accommodate up to four.
