Great Chesapeake Bay Fishing and Great Wildlife!

About Chesapeake Bay Fishing

Fishing from St. Michaels, MD as well as Cape Charles, VA, I have the best of the Chesapeake Bay to offer my clients. My objective is to put you on the best possible fising for the largest possible variety of fish species. Popular areas include the CBBT (Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel), The Chesapeake Light, Navy towers, the barrier islands, Susquehanna Flats, and the rest of Bay in between. I will plan a day with you to fish both the best fish and best location for fish that your time will allow. Special trips pursuing big game can be booked for Tuna, sharks, Tarpon, Cobia, Barricuda and other big game fish on fly. All of these species except tuna can be caught in our near coastal waters off MD and VA. Visit the species page and fishing reports page to learn about where and when you might hook up on some of these fish.

Boat ramp locations
Based on fishing locations, the guest may be need to meet at a location other than the town of Saint Michaels. Directions will be provided. Ground transportation can be provided. The best value for the guest(s) is always to meet the boat at this location. These locations will be coordinated in advance with the guest(s).

The time for the outing starts at the departure time agreed to by the guest(s) and Captain. Depending upon the season early departures and late evenings can prove very productive. Talk to the Captain and tailor the trip to match your fishing interest. Maryland fishing after dark is highly recommended during warmer months of summer. This is anytime, between sundown and sunrise. Starting times for these are also flexible.

You should wear seasonal clothing. Dress in layers to provide warmer clothing for early morning starts or end of day Chesapeake Bay fly-fishing. The sun will burn you even on cloudy days. Sunscreen works, use it. A day of fishing turns very uncomfortable for a sun burn victim. A light rain might bring the best fishing of the day, bring rain gear if you have it. Use good quality sunglasses for your outing. They can help your accuracy as much as your back cast on a sunny Chesapeake day.

Food and Drink
Full day booking includes lunch consisting of a sandwich, chips or apple and plenty of cold waters. Special diet considerations should be discussed in advance. For half-day outings I provide beverages only. Feel free to bring food or drink of your own. A spot in my built in cooler is available for you to keep your items. Space on board is limited. Please don't plan to bring a cooler on board. Please no glass and limit alcoholic beverages of any kind. [top]
