Ebb Tide Charters

Ebb Tide Charters welcomes anglers, sportsmen and vacationers to The Chesapeake Bay. Captain Billy Gee is a third generation of fishermen in his family and he’s spent his whole life exploring the waters of Chesapeake Bay. Now, he’s ready to share his experience with you.

The charter is located at the Happy Harbor Inn in Deale Maryland, which is only 45 minutes from Baltimore and DC. This gives you access to the middle Chesapeake Bay, where you can find great sport fishing action, any time between May and December.

Ebb Tide is a 40’ Robbins bay boat, which is exceptionally well maintained. There’s lots of space for fishing action, so the boat accommodates up to 15 guests. The boat is powered by a 375 HP Caterpillar engine and provides a safe and comfortable ride, no matter how far offshore you go. The typical cruising speed is around 16 knots, which means you’ll reach your fishing spot quickly.

The most popular fish to catch here is Striped Bass (Rockfish). You may also land Spanish Mackerel, Catfish, Black Drum, Bluefish, and White Perch. Catching them is only half of the fun - you get to keep the fish after the trip and enjoy a lovely meal. The crew will clean and fillet the catch, so it will be ready for the grill immediately.

All the fishing gear on board is professional and durable. You can choose from a variety of different sizes of rods and reels and find what’s best for your target. Feel free to bring your own gear if you prefer it, just let the captain know in advance, so he can make enough storage space.

Ebb Tide Charters welcomes you aboard!

Capt. Billy Gee is a third-generation fisherman and shares his father’s love of this amazing sport. His specialty is catching Rockfish on the Chesapeake Bay. Born and raised in Deale Maryland, Capt. Billy grew up fishing the middle bay with his grandfather. When he was old enough to make fishing from a hobby into a career, he started working for local charter boats. Billy became a full-time mate when his dad bought his first charter boat and started Ebb Tide Charters. In 1999 he got his captain’s license and in 2014 purchased his own 40' charter boat. He also has an Unlimited Tidal Fishing license from the Maryland Dept. of Natural Resources.
