Capt. Jeff Warford - "Wolfpack" - Barnegat, NJ
As a child, Captain Jeff Warford started fishing off the waters of Long Beach Island. Learning from the ground up the lifelong passion for bluewater fishing grew. At 16 Jeff was first mate for Captain Les Osborn aboard the “Little Chick” out of Barnegat Light, NJ. He quickly realized his love for tuna fishing. Seasoned by years of experience on the water, Jeff set out to make fishing his profession. Capt. Jeff has finished off many a season as one of the top tuna boats and after a number of years of successful charter fishing Jeff moved into the private boat world. In late 2016, Jeff took the job as captain of the 58′ Viking "Wolfpack" and hasn't looked back in working with the owner to start one of the most innovative tackle companies around.
