Fishing is a huge passion of Captain Tony Battista, and has been for decades now. Booking a trip with him at Saltwater Adventures LLC is sure to be awesome, as his enthusiasm is contagious! You’ll be fishing like a pro in no time.

You will spend the day on board a 25’ custom built Cold Molded center console boat. You and 3 fishing friends will fish in comfort, and the vessel’s 250 Yamaha engine will get you to the fishing grounds before you know it. She also boasts full navigational equipment, which, paired with Capt. Tony’s great knowledge of the area, will have you reeling in the fish fast.

Trips run year round, but you can expect to catch different species during different seasons. From April you can expect Tautog and Flounder, moving to Sea Bass, Tilefish, Mako and Thresher Shark in May. June sees plenty of Tuna making their run, as well as billfish and Mahi Mahi. October is peak fishing time and will see you catch the best variety, including Wahoo. Even in January some years migrating Striper can be caught.

Different species will see you using different techniques to catch them, such as trolling, spinning, drift fishing, and jigging. There is something for everybody! Children are also welcome on board.

On every trip 2 t-shirts will be given free. The trips also include all top of the line Daiwa and Shimano rods and reels, so you can rest assured that your gear won’t let you down when you are battling your dream fish.

Capt. Tony will also provide drinks during the trips. You are welcome to bring snacks, but you’ll be too busy to sit down and eat!

So what are you waiting for? Come have a trip of a lifetime with Saltwater Adventures LLC, and make some memories that will last forever. Capt. Tony can’t wait to welcome you on board.

    Most of the boat traffic for the day is already off the water. It is very peaceful and serene. If we are lucky, we will have a spectacular sunset. As for the fishing, there are many options. Drifting for flounder, site casting for the schooling fish that come to the surface chasing the bait . If the tides are right we can also cast lures around the bridge pilings or rock jetties that line the inlet. Pack your dinner and eat out on the water while enjoying the most beautiful time of the day.

I started fishing with my grandfather at age 9. As a child, I grew up fishing on the banks of the Chesapeake Bay and off of the Rt. 50 Bridge in Ocean City, MD. In the early days it was all about Perch (both Yellow and White) and small rockfish. In Ocean City, it was all Flounder. My grandfather loved to catch Flounder. In my early teens I was introduced to trolling. Mostly for Striped Bass and Bluefish on the Chesapeake. These fish would range from 5 to 20 pounds with an occasional fish over 25. It was on one of these trolling trips that I got to experience light tackle fishing for the first time. Late in the afternoon, a school of 10-12 pound Stripers started breaking on the surface. The captain had the mate pull all of the trolling gear in and then handed everyone a spinning rod with a red and white bucktail on it. For the next 2 hours, we made cast after cast hooking up every time. I was hooked! I couldn't get enough of fishing, it's all I wanted to do during my summer breaks!
