Captain Pete's Fish Tales - Eastern Shore

Captain Pete’s Eastern Shore adventure welcomes you to Chincoteague Island on a fishing trip of a lifetime. Not sure what to do? You cal do it all! Book a relaxing, yet exciting four hour trip, and spend some quality time with the family.

The Fish Tales fleet currently consists of 4 boats, and Captain Pete Wallace invites you to spend a perfect day out on his 24’ center console, a real beauty. Manufactured by Carolina Skiff in 2002, this boat was fully refurbished in 2018 so you’ll find only top-notch modern accessories on board – from high-quality navigational electronics to safety equipment.

It also has a canopy top for keeping you shaded, cushioned seating area for resting while you’re waiting for fish to bite, and a restroom for full comfort. The vessel is roomy enough to accommodate up to 6 anglers, but the maximum number of passengers depends on the type of the trip.

Captain Pete’s Fish Tales specializes in Shark and Striped Bass fishing, but the captain can also tailor the excursion according to your preferences and take you after Flounder, Redfish, Seabass, and whatever else your heart desires. You will also get the chance to relax while looking for Dolphins and Sea Turtles.

All the trips include the use of top-quality fishing gear, lures, and live bait (caught during the trip). The captain will also hook you up with the best cut bait used for Shark fishing. The first mate will be assisting you with everything else – he’ll even clean and fillet your delicious catch after the trip is over. All you have to do is book a trip and experience Chincoteague Island from a unique point of view!
