Depending on the season, you’ll be targeting Striped Bass, Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish, and many more. You’ll have the option of bottom fishing, trolling, or jigging and your captain will provide you with top-notch rods and reels, as well as live bait and high-performance lures.

All you need to bring is a cooler for your food and drinks and zip-lock bags for your catch. Just arrive 30 minutes before departure, and the rest will be taken care of. Come on down to Solomons, MD and get ready to create lasting memories with Strike Zone Charter Fishing!
