Rivershore Charters Inc.

Get back to one with nature with a casual stroll down the Potomac. Rivershore Charters Inc. will take you to the secluded waterways just out of Dumfries, VA. Bring your family and friends along as up to 40 people can enjoy the stunning surroundings while 6 guests fish aboard a spacious party boat!

Captain Mark Perry prides himself on his first-class service. One of the few guides along these shores, he keeps his prices affordable and his trips fun. With over 50 years of experience with a rod in his hand, he knows exactly what it takes to catch the most coveted fish in the river and promises to help you fill the boat.

The 50’ Susquehanna Santee commercial boat is a thing of beauty. With ample space, plenty of seating, and a barbecue on board, you’ll have everything you need for a fun-filled day on the water. She comes fitted with a toilet for your convenience, so don’t be shy when filling up on Capt. Mark’s wide offer of drinks, including beer and sodas!

When it comes to the fishing, you’ll have 4 poles at your disposal and plenty of live bait, such as earthworms and shrimp. Sit back in your chair and jig over the side of the boat as you anchor up, and get back to basics with a true laid-back fishing experience.

These waters are full of exciting, prized fish. Test your skills and strength against Catfish who’ll make you work hard to drag them up from the bottom. Largemouth Bass, one of the nation’s favorite freshwater fish, is sure to put up a fight to get off your line, while delicious Perch will make for a treat at the end of the day.

Fill the boat and head home with plenty of tasty fish for dinner that night. On trips with more than 5 people, Capt. Mark can arrange a first mate, who’ll clean and fillet your catch, so there’s nothing left for you to do. Bring aboard some cash to tip him, along with your own snacks and lunch, and settle in for a thrilling day with Rivershore Charters Inc.!
