Chesapeake Coastal Charters

Chesapeake Coastal Charters invites you to a lovely fishing experience in Annapolis, Maryland. Famous for its fishing spots close to the shore, it offers you plenty of angling action and opportunity to jam-pack your coolers. Join Captain Zack Hoisington in fishing inshore, nearshore, and flats, and have a great time on the water.

Your journey will start on a 19’ MayCraft center console that can sit up to 3 anglers. It runs on a 115 HP Yamaha engine with a maximum cruising speed of 27 knots. The onboard navigation equipment comprises modern GPS, fishfinder, and VHF radio systems.

There will be a lot of interesting species you can target, such as Striped Bass, Speckled Trout, Red Drum, and more. Using light tackle, you’ll have the chance to try your skills at bottom fishing, spinning, jigging, popping, and fly fishing. During June, the captain also offers Cobia trips from Virginia where you’ll get the chance to sight fish using the boat’s tower.

Children are welcome to join the trip as it usually makes things way more fun for everybody. You’re allowed to release the fish you catch back to the water.

Captain Zack will supply you with everything you’ll need for fishing, meaning rods, reels, tackle, fly fishing gear, and lures as well. Licenses, lunch, and drinks are also included, and the captain will even clean and fillet your catch at the end of your trip.

Chesapeake Coastal Charters and Captain Zack are waiting for you for an enjoyable and memorable fishing experience!
