We Are A Full Time Light Tackle Fishing Guide Service On The Chesapeake Bay. We Target Mainly Striped Bass But Different Species Vary Thru Out The Year Such As Red Drum, Cobia, Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish, Speckled Trout. Captain Drey Thomason Is A Licensed OUPV USCG Captain. Light Tackle Fishing Is Something I Believe Every Person Should Have The Chance To Experience, There Is More To Fishing Than Just Reeling In a Rig. Light Tackle Puts The Fishing In Your Hands. You Feel Every Head Shake And Movement The Fish Makes. The Top Water Blow Ups Will Be Unforgettable!! We fish all Different Techniques And Areas From The Flats, Islands, To Deep Ledges And Structures Using Artificial Lures At All Times. On a Good Day It Is Nothing To Boat 100 fish. I Am Personally a Catch And Release Fisherman I Have Always Fished For The Love Of The Sport And The Fishery. I Do Have a Size Limit On My Boat I Will Not Harvest a Fish Over 35”. All Customers May Keep There Limit But Again I WILL NOT HARVEST A “STRIPED BASS” OVER 35 INCHES. My Boat Is Also Equppied With An ACR EPIRB and Optional USCG Inflatable Life Jackets.

Captain Drey Thomason is a full time light tackle fishing guide here on the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries. Light Tackle fishing is by far one of the most enjoyable ways to fish the Chesapeake bay. We target a variety of species such as striped bass, red drum, cobia, speckled trout, spanish mackerel, blue fish and a few other species that swim in our water ways. Most of these species listed are seasonal catches but we are able to fish all four seasons here in Maryland. If you have never experienced light tackle fishing then book your trip today!! It is by far one of best fishing experience you will have here on the Chesapeake Bay and It will be a day to remember. My boat is well equipped with some of the best tackle and electronics in the game with Backyard custom rods, Florida fishing products reels, Simrad, Minn kota. Book your trip today and make a memory that will last a life time. Tight lines
