Southern Girl welcomes you to Annapolis, Maryland and invites you on inshore and river fishing trips. It believes that recreation, education, and conservation are the most important things when it comes to fishing. So prepare to have fun, learn something about nature, and serve it as well. Captain Brian McCormick will take you to the best fishing spots and help you have an exciting time on the water.

Your trip will start on a 23’ Northcoast center console boat that’s powered by a 250 Honda engine and that can accommodate up to 4 persons. It’s equipped with modern GPS, radio, and fish finding systems, as well as with a livewell.

Captain Brian uses light tackle and applies various fishing techniques, such as bottom fishing, spinning, jigging, popping, as well as drift fishing. His boat is always family-friendly, so feel free to bring the kids and have a great family trip in nature. You can choose whether you’ll keep or release the fish you catch. However, each guest can keep one rockfish.

All the tackle including rods, reels, terminal tackle, live bait and lures will be waiting on the boat. The captain will also supply fishing licenses, so you should only pack some food and drinks.

Don’t hesitate and visit Southern Girl for an exciting and enlightening fishing adventure!
