Relax, enjoy, and have some serious fun catching fish together with Jig This Charter Fishing. Your host is Captain Chris Marseglia, a lifelong angler with a great desire to take others out on the water and make their fishing adventures as best as possible. Based out of Solomons, Maryland, he can take you to the area’s inshore and nearshore waters and provide a fun and productive trip. Pick your day and join him aboard.

The boat you’ll be using for the adventure is a 36’ Rose Brothers saltwater fishing boat big enough to take up to 6 anglers. Running on twin 330 HP Cummins engines and rigged with various navigation electronics, it will take you to the fishing spots in no time. The boat is wheelchair-accessible and has a flybridge, toilet, fighting chair, and outriggers. A first mate will also be on board.

On your trip, you’ll mainly be fishing for Striped Bass, Spanish Mackerel, Rockfish, White Perch, and Bluefish. To attract your targets, you can try bottom fishing and trolling. You and the crew will be keeping the fish you catch, and for some species, Capt. Chris offers cleaning and filleting after the trip.

The captain will also provide you with rods, reels, tackle, lures, as well as fishing licenses. The only things you need to bring are your favorite food and drinks to stay refreshed.
