Potomac Joe's Fishing Service

Fishing the mesmerizing Chesapeake Bay and the historic Potomac River has never been easier. Join Potomac Joe’s Fishing Service for a day and see what brings anglers across the whole country to this area. The most important thing for any angler is how bountiful these waters are, but an important part of the whole experience is also the beauty of its nature. Enjoy passing by the submerged trees, diverse vegetation, wildlife, and historical sites, such as wooden steamships from the WWI era.

You’ll be fishing on a 21’ Strato boat that welcomes up to 2 guests. This bass boat is powered by a 250 HP Evinrude engine and features Humminbird Gen 2 navigational electronics - so you can count on reaching the right spot and fast.

There’s lots of different species to go after, such as Yellow Perch, Carp, Smallmouth and Largemouth Bass, and Catfish. All of them are fun to catch and a delicacy to eat. Depending on the current regulations, you’ll be able to keep your catch, so start looking for some fish recipes. You’ll mainly use light tackle to get your catch.

The trips are suitable for anglers of all skill levels, so don’t hesitate to join. All you need to do to get ready is to pack some food and drinks for the day. The captain will take care of your fishing equipment by bringing a variety of rods, reels, and lures.

Potomac Joe’s Fishing Service is at your service. Let’s catch some fish!
