If you’re itching to experience some of the best fishing adventures that Chesapeake Bay can offer, then Valerie Ann Charters should be on top of your list. Operating out of a privately owned marina in Deale, this charter will provide you with a unique angling experience you’ll remember for years to come.
Join Captain Mike Garrett on his 38’ Evans boat that can accommodate up to 6 anglers fishing in full comfort. It comes powered by twin Caterpillar engines, 210 HP each. The ‘Valerie Ann’ is outfitted with the latest navigational equipment and fishfinding electronics, as well as top-notch safety gear. There’s also a full restroom and two beds on board for maximum comfort. Live bait wells are there to keep your bait fresh, and you’ll also be supplied with ice-boxes for your catch.
Your inshore adventure will start from a privately owned dock with a free parking, located only 10 minutes from the bay. The captain will take you after the likes of Striped Bass, Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish, Red Drum, and who knows what else. He’ll also show you the best ways to land the catch, including trolling, jigging, bottom fishing, and much more.
If you want to do some live bait fishing, the captain will help you catch some on the way. And after you land your dream fish, you’ll find a fish cleaning station on the dock. Kids of all ages are welcome, young or old.
First Mate will be there to assist you with anything you need. He works hard to make sure your trips go as smoothly as possible, gratuity is greatly appreciated (20% is the local standard). The charter covers all the fishing gear essential for landing your desired fish - you just have to show up and reel it in!
