Fin-Atic Sportfishing Charters

Fin-Atic Sportfishing Charters offers some of the finest inshore, bay, and nearshore fishing in the entire Chesapeake Bay. Captain Mike Lintzenich is a 100-ton master captain who works hard to ensure that you experience the best fishing opportunities possible in this beautiful and bountiful fishery.

Choose between four, six, and eight-hour fishing trips for up to four people aboard a 25’ C-Hawk center console boat with a custom tower. The vessel is equipped with GPS and fishfinder to get you locked on the biggest fish in the bay, and features downriggers to help target those hard-to-reach fish beneath your feet. She also has a huge, 40-gallon livewell full of fresh bait.

Capt. Mike specializes in Cobia and Red Drum sight-fishing, but he will customize the trip to your needs and interests. You will be able to target Cobia from the beginning of June to the end of September, while Striped Bass can be caught in November and December. From complete beginners to the most experienced, he will work hard to ensure a safe and fulfilling day on the water. If you’re after a specific species, every part of your trip will be set up for it. Just want to catch some fish? Capt. Mike will make it happen.

All trips come with quality light tackle, a selection of lures, and the best live bait around. Mike prepares this ahead of time so you don’t waste yours fishing for it. Fishing licenses are also covered, and your fish will even be cleaned and filleted free of charge at the end of the day. All you need to bring is your food and drinks and plenty of energy for the day ahead.

I started fishing as soon as I could walk, exploring the Florida Everglades, Ten Thousand Islands, and Florida Keys in 1975. Since moving to the East Coast in 1993, I have been avidly fishing the Atlantic Ocean and its estuaries every chance I get. The Chesapeake Bay provides amazing opportunities for saltwater fishing enthusiasts like me!
