**Fishing is closes until May. Cruises available**

Hooked Up 2 Charters offers a unique fishing experience for all. Your U.S. Coast Guard certified captain, David Bailey, has over 30 years of experience working on the Chesapeake Bay and knows the best places to go!

If you chose to fish with Hooked Up 2 Charters you will learn some of the trade secrets. The captain and the mate love to have fun while having a productive day on the water and getting customers involved.

You will be traveling in a 40 ft Key West hull pushed by a 450 HP Cummins engine that is designed to get you to the fish comfortably and quickly! The boat is Coast Guard Inspected and Certified to carry up to 20 people. She’s loaded with all the necessary equipment and top-of-the-line Lowrance and Furuno electronics. The boat is equipped with high-quality Penn tackle that will suit all your fishing needs. For the colder early spring and late fall days, the cabin is heated to make an enjoyable fishing experience. Hooked Up 2 also has a head down below for you to comfortably take care of your needs.

The boat fishes from May through mid-December. The fishing style and location changes as fish patterns change throughout the year. Whether you are a new angler or a salty vet, Captain David and his mate cater to make a fun enjoyable experience for the customers.

Hooked Up 2 is based out of Deale, Maryland at Happy Harbor Restaurant but the boat is moved north to Edgewater, Maryland in the summer to Anchor Yacht Basin. Be sure to check with Capt. Dave on where to meet in the morning.

Hooked Up 2 Charters offer trips in the morning, afternoon, and all day to find whatever works for your schedule. The rods, reels, bait, and lures will all be provided for you. The fish can also be cleaned for you as soon as we get back to shore by request to the mate. All you need to bring is whatever snacks and drinks needed to enhance your fishing experience along with baggies and a cooler to get your fresh catch home!

I grew up with a love for fishing and began working on boats in 1987 as a first mate. In 2002, I decided to grow my brand and purchased my own boat, and started running my own trips.
