Nauti Hooker Charters – Stevensville

Explore secret fishing spots in the Chesapeake Bay with Nauti Hooker Charters! Captain Richard Phippin has been fishing in the area since he was a teenager and started this charter as a family business. His trips are available year-round and he’ll always follow the fish to give you the best possible chance for a successful day on the water.

Your journey starts on a 25’ Maycraft pilothouse. She’s powered by a 300 HP Suzuki engine and accommodates up to 4 guests. The boat has an enclosed hardtop cabin that provides seating and protection from the weather. She also features canvas enclosures to secure you from cold and windy days. There’s also a private porta potty in the cabin.

Every season has something different to offer! You’ll use trolling in the spring and fall for Striped Bass (Rockfish) and summer for Bluefish and Spanish Mackerel. These species are fast and they like to chase the bait. Light tackle and jigging are great if you encounter big schools of fish and for this, you’ll mainly use lures. You can also catch Flounder, Trout, and Silver Perch.

Capt. Richie trailers his boat to be close to the fishing grounds for your trip and give you a longer time to fish.

The crew provides all rods, reels, tackle, and fishing licenses. You can bring your snacks and drinks for the day and make sure to have warm jackets and rainwear with you. Capt. Richie prefers to catch and release but he will clean your catch if you wish to keep it.

Whether you’re a beginner or a fishing expert, you’re bound to have a great time with Nauti Hooker Charters. Just choose the date.

Captain Richard grew up around anglers and started fishing himself when he was a teenager. He loved it and he has been doing it ever since. The captain tries to do whatever is the best method for the time of year and the fish he is pursuing. His absolute favorite is casting to breakers and jigging in the fall. Captain Richard occasionally participates in "catch and release" fishing tournaments. His biggest catch so far is 43" Rockfish.
