Rowe Boat Sportfishing

Rowe Boat Sportfishing offers you enjoyable fishing trips along with dinner cruises, crabbing charters, as well as customized adventures on the Chesapeake Bay. You’ll start your trip out of Rock Hall, which is located on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Rock Hall is a quaint little waterfront town that offers several waterfront restaurants, a beach area, and shopping on Main Street. Join Captain Lance Rowe in this great town that will bring your family and friends lots of good fishing and fun!

You’ll fish from a restored 35’ Markley commercial boat that can sit up to 6 guests and runs on a 370 HP Cummins engine. It uses excellent, full-featured navigation technology that includes GPS, a fishfinder, radio, and a radar. The boat’s also got a private toilet and is equipped with a livewell that will supply you with live bait. There will also be a first mate joining your trip.

The rivers, inshore, and offshore waters around Rock Hall offer you a fine variety of fish to catch. You can go after Striped Bass, White Perch, Spanish Mackerel, Catfish, as well as Crab. You can keep all the fish you catch or just release it back into the water, the choice is up to you. You’ll attract the fish by bottom fishing, trolling, spinning, and jigging. Kids are more than welcome to join the trip.

Captain Lance will provide all the rods, reels, tackle, live bait, lures, as well as fishing licenses. He can also clean and fillet your catch, free of charge. You should only bring your snacks and drinks before you depart.

Come join Rowe Boat Sportfishing and have a memorable fishing experience in a beautiful and fish-rich area!
