At Thomason Tradition Sport Fishing, they strive every day to make sure they can give their customers the most memorable fishing experience they can. They are a full time light tackle fishing guide service on the Chesapeake Bay.
Captain Drey Thomason is a licensed USCG captain. He believes that light tackle fishing is something 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!
Hop aboard a 22’ bay boat that accommodates up to 4 guests. She’s powered by a 140 HP Suzuki engine and features the latest navigational electronics. To make fishing go as smooth as possible, the boat also has a fighting chair, a live bait tank, and a cooler.
You’ll target mainly Striped Bass, but different species vary throughout the year, such as Red Drum, Cobia, Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish, Speckled Trout, and more. You’ll use 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’s easy to boat 100 fish. Captain Drey is a catch and release fisherman and he has always fished for the love of the sport and the fishery. However, if you love a good fish meal, you can keep the fish smaller than 35,’’ except for the Red Drum, which is catch and release only.
If you have never experienced light tackle fishing then book your trip with Thomason Tradition Sport Fishing! It is by far one of the best fishing experiences you will have here on the Chesapeake Bay and it will be a day to remember.
