Fishing the most fertile inshore grounds on the East Coast, we specialize in light tackle, fast-action fun for all levels. We educate - giving tips on technique, tackle and fish behavior and habitat. Family fun, boys trips, girls day out, corporate trips, we have it all. Our boats are ideal for 2-3 adults OR 2 adults and 2-3 kids. The fishing is fun and the area is beautiful. We have the Chesapeake Bay and many of its prime tributaries right on our doorstep, giving us multiple options to optimize for tide and wind conditions when hunting for fish.
Rockfish - The East Coast's premier sport fish. In early spring we target trophy fish that migrate into the bay to spawn. Our focus is safe practice catch and release as the big females are the future of our fishery. Late spring through the summer months we fish on structure, shallows and exciting surface blitzes for resident Rockfish. The fall is great fishing with cooler temperatures, the fish are fattening up for winter and very hungry. Nothing wrong with taking a fish home for dinner or to a local restaurant where we have an arrangement to cook the catch right from the boat.
Bluefish - These ferocious feeders show up in mid summer, with blistering runs, they are very exciting on light tackle and are great on the smoker - We can provide fish smoking service and ship to your home.
Speckled Trout - We get these beautiful ambush feeders in the summer months is the shallow bays, a great fight and taste good too.
Spanish Mackerel - These toothy speedsters make an appearance in late summer in the middle Chesapeake. With blistering runs and real opportunities for a trophy sized fish on light tackle.
Red Drum/Cobia - When the Bull Reds show up in August I will run Full Day trips to target these hard fighting trophy fish, truly an awesome experience right here in the Chesapeake Bay
Chain Pickerel - We target these shallow water ambush feeders up the rivers in the colder months.
Also: Puppy Drum, White Perch, Stingrays, Croaker and Weakfish.

Lenny Rudow with FishTalk Magazine did a video shoot of the tackle and technique's we use for Rockfish in the Chesapeake Bay
We get these Big Red Drum just South of Annapolis, between Mid August and Mid September, there is no guarantee on these fish but when you get one on light tackle they are a thrill. Best to book a full day to chase these guys.
Hunting and catching these remarkable fish in the Chesapeake is an epic adventure for many of the mid- Chesapeake anglers, we will run trips to find these fish from Mid August to Mid September, it's a catch and release fishery.
