Chasin’ Dreams Sportfishing

Chasin’ Dreams Sportfishing welcomes you aboard! Come join in for a memorable fishing experience and fish the inshore waters and rivers of Baltimore, Maryland.

You and Captain David Bell will go to the spots with the biggest chance of landing a good catch and he’ll see to it that you have the best experience on the water possible. Pick a date that suits you and join him on the rich and beautiful waters of Baltimore!

The boat you’ll use for fishing is a 30’ Custom Carolina Scarborough express cruiser. It can accommodate 6 anglers and is powered by a 315 HP Cummins engine that can reach a maximum cruising speed of 24 knots.

Thanks to the full-featured onboard navigation technology, you’ll have a safe and efficient trip to the fish and back. The boat also features a private toilet you can access at any time.

On your trip, you’ll go after Striped Bass, Catfish, Spanish Mackerel, Cobia, and White Perch. You can choose whether you’ll keep or release the fish you catch, and you’re more than welcome to bring children on your trip.

The captain will take care of fishing licenses, supply you with all the rods, reels, tackle, lures, and live bait, and will clean and fillet your catch. What you should bring on your trip are just the food and drinks of your choice.

Chasin’ Dreams Sportfishing is waiting for you, come and have a great time on the water!
