Start your adventure in the Chesapeake Bay with Big Work Charters! Let Captain Drew take you through the largest estuary in North America. This area is known as one of the best places for targeting Striped Bass but there’s lots of other species as well. Join the adventure regardless of your fishing experience - you’ll learn everything you need to know right on spot.

The boat you’ll be fishing from is Capt. Drew’s passion project. He wanted to build a perfect fishing machine and he did it in 2016. The Big Work is a 52’ boat built by Millenium Marine. She’s powered by a 900 HP Scania Turbo Diesel engine and reaches high speed in no time. There’s state of the art electronics, such as 3 independent GPS displays and radar capable of seeing storms 120 miles away.

The boat has plenty of action space and she’s certified for 49 guests. You’ll find cushioned seating in the cabin and underneath the canopy. For extra comfort, there are also private toilets and the vessel is wheelchair accessible.

If you’re all set out for catching big Striper, join the crew in spring, when it’s spawning season. In May they migrate to the ocean and leave the smaller ones behind. You can go after them during summer, all the way till November. The trip can also take you to Bluefish, Spanish Mackerel, Black Drum, Cobia, and other species.

All fishing equipment and licenses are included in the price. You only need to pack some food, drinks, and sun protection.

Join Big Work Charters and see the fun side of fishing!
