CHARTER SERVICE

How do you make the very most of your time here in the Lowcountry? Spend it on the fish-filled rivers where you'll learn all there is about river life aboard a boat in the Merrikohl fleet. Let us take you there and show you how.

GUIDE SERVICE

Whether it's redfishing in the back bay, fighting a tarpon against a spray of saltwater or taking an outdoor adventure outside of the Lowcountry, we'll show you how to make the most of an outing on your own boat.   

OUTDOOR EDUCATION

Take your knowledge of all things outdoors to the next level. If you need to brush up on loading/splashing, navigating, casting, docking, and even cleaning your catch, let us show you how to get river ready.

ABOUT US

Captain Jason Woodham started his fishing career at the ripe age of 10 in the Florida Gulf Coast and later in the Bahamas, Mexico and St. Thomas. Acquiring his OUPV 6-pack Captain’s license in 1997, he ran charters on his own boats, offered guide trips, gained coveted sponsorships and spoke at several regional fishing expos.

 

In 2001, Jason began running a tournament sportfishing operation that would last over the next 16 years. During his career as a captain, Jason won countless tournaments, as well as top boat and captain awards along the Gulf Coast, East Coast and the Florida Keys. He’s fished from Nova Scotia to Costa Rica and amassed a lifetime of knowledge about fishing, boats and his most treasured skill, sincerely connecting with people.

Captain Jason's passion for all things outdoors and teaching those with like interests lead him to start MerriKohl Outfitters, named after a charter boat he owned in 2005. The name "Merrikohl" was coined upon commenting on the miracle of life, after his 2 children, Merritt and Kohl, were born.
