Wayne Gatling Guide Service – 46'

Striper fishing has just got more interesting with Wayne Gatling Guide Service! Join Captain Wayne in Rock Hall and start a fishing adventure you’ll remember for years to come. He’s been in the business for 48 years and has completed over 7500 charters out of Rock Hall. In 2020, Capt. Wayne was awarded “Best of the Bay” for charter boat captains by the Chesapeake Bay Magazine, while in 2021, he received the “Best of Rock Hall” award.

The trip starts on a 46’ Markley boat that’s a true fishing machine. This spacious vessel has enough room to take 16 anglers per trip and everyone can fish in comfort. After a restoration in 2020, the boat got twin 330 HP Cummins engines and upgraded with the newest navigational electronics. The boat is wheelchair accessible, has a private toilet, and also features a live bait tank, a cooler, and safety gear.

Choose between a morning and an afternoon trip. You’ll explore the offshore spots looking for Striped Bass. There are different techniques you can use, mainly bottom fishing, spinning, and jigging. You get to keep your catch so try to make every cast count and don’t let the fish slip away.

All fishing equipment and licenses are included in the price. After the trip, the crew will also clean and fillet your catch, so you just need to find a good nearby restaurant and enjoy a well-earned meal. Don’t forget to pack some snacks and drinks for the day.

Wayne Gatling Guide Service welcomes you aboard! Let’s go fishing!
