When you’ve got a lot of awesome angling buddies and you all want to go fishing together, turn to Brawler II Charters! Captain Bo Hamm and his crew are more than ready and capable to help you discover the beauty of Kent Island fishery.

Of course, if you’d like to have a more private fishing trip, it is entirely possible to arrange it, but the 42’ Evans boat is fully equipped to take up to 20 persons to memorable fishing excursions every day. She’s sturdy, reliable, and safe to take you to the best fishing spots fast, thanks to her 450 HP Cummins engine.

You will be fishing the waters of Chesapeake Bay and your bounty will be plentiful and varied. Capt. Bo will take you out for 8 hours, and during that time you can reel in anything from Striped Bass, Redfish, Bluefish, and Black Drum, just to name a few local favorites. Sometimes you’ll cast your line very close to the shore, and sometimes you’ll have to go further out, it depends on where the best fish hide.

You can choose an excursion for you and your party only, or you can join in on a shared trip and fish alongside anglers that could quickly become your friends. Whatever option sounds more appealing to you, one thing’s certain - you’ll have an amazing time.

Bear in mind that the fishing season in this area starts on the third Saturday of April and ends mid-December every year, which means you have plenty of time to plan your fishing adventure.

The use of top-notch rods, reels, and tackle like Shimano, Penn, and St.Croix is included in the price, as well as catch cleaning and filleting. It will be up to you only to decide how you’re you’re going to prepare your freshly caught fish.

You’ll also have a professional first mate aboard, and 20% tip is customary for all his hard work. If you’re bringing your kids, make sure they’re 5 years and older, Capt. Bo will have adequate life vests for them.

Take a trip with Brawler II Charters and find out why their catchphrase is “Good times, professionally delivered!”
