COVID-19 update: Maryland fishing is a go! There are currently no restrictions related to Capt. Ritchy’s business.

Oxford Charters offers amazing fishing experiences on the stunning Chesapeake Bay waters. Based out of historic Oxford, MD, you’ll be on the water in no time. Easily accessible from Easton, Cambridge, and St. Michaels, they’re conveniently located in a prime spot for exploring these rich nearshore waters.

Captain Ritchy and his crew have a lifetime of experience fishing on the Chesapeake Bay. They use the most advanced techniques to give you the best opportunity to fill the boat. They’re committed to ensuring a fun experience for any type of angler, so hop aboard and make the most of these world-famous waters.

The “Dana-Kat” is a 40’ Mabry downeast boat. Completely refurbished in 2018, she offers maximum comfort. She boasts a spacious air-conditioned and heated cabin, along with top-of-the-line electronics. Up to 6 passengers can make themselves at home as you utilize the restroom, bunk, and working kitchen.

All trips come with top of the line fishing equipment including Shimano and Penn rods and reels. Everything you need, including fishing licenses, is included except food and drinks, just bring those and make the most of your day on the water.

Troll from the downriggers or bottom fish, jig and drift fish, as you seek to entice the bite of some highly-prized fish. Expect an intense battle to land some monster species, as you go after Rockfish, Bluefish, Perch, Mackerel, Drum, and many more.

At the end of the trip, your catch will be filleted and packaged by the first mate. He’ll work hard before, during, and after the trip, so gratuity is expected.

Come and join Captain Ritchy and his crew for an exceptional fishing experience. The season runs from mid-April right through mid-December, so there’s no reason to miss out. Oxford Charters is waiting to teach you about the riches of the Chesapeake.
