Salt Tale Charters welcomes you to its command post in Cambridge, Maryland. You will get to fish the inshore waters with Captain Brandon Wingate who’ll take you to the best spots in the area and make sure you have a memorable and enjoyable trip.

Your trip will start on a 24’ Everglades bay boat. Powered by a 300 HP Yamaha engine and equipped with modern navigation electronics, it will take you to the fish in no time. Its maximum capacity is 3 anglers. The boat’s got a toilet, wireless trolling motor, and a livewell.

You and the captain will use light tackle for spinning, jigging, popping, and fly fishing. The species you’ll target include Striped Bass, Speckled Trout, Redfish, White Perch, and Cobia. You can keep all the fish you’ve caught and you’re welcome to bring along any kids with you.

The captain will provide you with custom spinning rods, Shimano reels, and terminal tackle. This covers you for all available techniques except for fly fishing. For lures, he uses swim baits, topwater plugs, and bucktails. He’s also got live bait. Included in the price are also cleaning and filleting your catch as well as water. Finally, the boat is licensed for all occupants, so the only thing you should bring is food.
