Going fast!

Operating out of Ocean City, Coastal Guide Service’s goal is to make your trip memorable, enjoyable, and keep you safe in the process. Captain Justin Marshall has been fishing these bountiful waters since 2009, and he can’t wait to share all his knowledge!

You will be fishing from a 28’ Dusky center console with full curtains, up to date Garmin electronics, Sat Phone, a Standard Horizon VHF radio, and all the equipment you need to catch the target species. The boat also features outriggers, downriggers, a livewell, and a cooler for your food/drinks. It can take up to 6 anglers fishing on all trips.

Bring the whole family – Captain Justin loves teaching kids all the fun things about fishing. Just contact him in advance if you’re bringing kids so you can agree on what you’ll be doing and so he can prepare appropriate life jackets for them. This is a very hands-on operation, and the crew lets you do as much as you would like to. If you want to gaff a fish, go for it! They can do customized trips to fit all your fishing needs.

Species you can expect to catch depending on the time of year include Triggerfish, Mahi Mahi, Spanish Mackerel, Cobia, Sea Bass, Tautog, Bluefish, and even Sharks.

The captain will provide Penn reels, along with some custom and Star rods, live bait, and lures. Live bait is sometimes caught, sometimes bought, depending on the time of year and targeted species. Bowfishing equipment is also available upon request. You can keep the catch, and the captain will clean it for you, but there’s also a fish cleaning service at the marina.
Bring sunscreen, cameras, beverages (no glass), and food. It’s also a good idea to bring layered clothing.

Coastal Guide Service is looking forward to providing you with a fun-filled day on the water!

I have been fishing since I was very young and got into the Ocean City fishing scene around 2009. The things you get to experience while fishing and sharing that with other people is the best feeling ever. I love taking people fishing and providing them with experiences and activities they don’t get to live every day. One of my favorite things is introducing kids to the world of fishing and seeing first timers reel in a huge fish. I also take part in all the major tournaments out of Ocean City.
