Island Marine & Charter Fishing LLC

Wanna experience a fun and relaxing time while fishing on the Patuxent River? Well drop by the quaint community of Solomons, Maryland, and discover the area’s fishing potential. There, Island Marine & Charter Fishing LLC is waiting for you to provide you with a fishing trip. You’ll be under the guidance of Captain Wes Jackson, who’s got tons of experience to share.

You’ll be enjoying your time on the water on board the Robbins, downseat model from 2011, which was restored in 2019. It is 46’ and it can accommodate groups of up to 12 people – perfect for large group activities. The boat is fitted with a double Cummins engine that can reach top speeds of 18 kn. You can target your fish from the flybridge, and outriggers are available for trolling.

This charter specializes in river and inshore fishing as it covers the Patuxent River and its mouth into the Chesapeake Bay. Although you might encounter fish all year round, the colder months are slow. You’ll have the most chances from May till the end of October, so use this season to bag some Mackerel, Striped Bass, and Bluefish. There’s a variety of fishing techniques at your disposal which include light and heavy tackle, trolling, and drift fishing.

You don’t have to worry about the necessary fishing equipment, lures, and bait as this will be waiting for you on board. The charter covers your Maryland fishing license, so just bring your snacks and refreshments. For greater comfort during your fishing experience, an onboard toilet and bed are available. If you get lucky you get to keep your fish, and the crew will help you clean it. Families with children are welcome.

Spend a refreshing day on the waves of Patuxent River and hopefully, you’ll bag some fresh fish. Contact Island Marine & Charter Fishing LLC.
