Tenacious Charter Fishing

Tenacious Charters Fishing is a family-owned and operated Chesapeake Bay charter located in Deale, Maryland, slipped at Happy Harbor Restaurant.

Come join the friendly and experienced Captain Jacob Henderson for an inshore or nearshore trip and have a great time on the water chasing many different species!

Your adventure starts on a 40’ Robbins bay boat. This mighty vessel that sits up to 12 anglers is powered by a 450 HP Cummins engine and uses modern GPS and fishfinder equipment that allows you a safe and quick trip to the fish. It’s wheelchair-accessible and features a portable toilet. For fishing, it makes use of downriggers and has a livewell to supply you with live bait. You will also have the help of a first mate during the trip.

Apart from Striped Bass, which is the captain’s most popular target, you will also have plenty of opportunity to chase Spanish Mackerel, White Perch, Bluefish, Cobia, Redfish, and Black Drum. The techniques you can use include bottom fishing, trolling, spinning, jigging, as well as fly and drift fishing. You can bring all the kids you want on your trip and you are free to keep any fish you catch, as long as it’s within regulations.

Captain Jacob will cover all the needed fishing tackle, live bait, lures, as well as fishing licenses. If you want, you can also have your fish cleaned and filleted at no extra cost. Before you depart, just pack the food and drinks of your choice, and your fly fishing gear if you want to cast some flies. Please also remember that the first mate works for a customary 20% tip.

Come on a fishing trip with Tenacious Charter Fishing and enjoy a fun and exciting day on the water!
