We also offering trips to the eastern shore islands out of Solomons islands MD as well as bottom fishing trips. 

- Eastern shore islands will focus on striped bass, speckled trout, bluefish and puppy drum in shallow water and a optional trip to Smith Island for crab cake lunch and famous Smith island cake.

Bottom fishing trips: are 3 hours and include all bait and tackle we often catch over 10 species of fish with a lot of fun fishing action. (spot and perch tend to be the best fish for the cooler on these trips)

We use only the highest quality fishing rods and reels as well as tackle! No need to bring any gear on board. Just bring your food and drink. We have a iced cooler on board for your food/drink.  (please do not crowd the boat with coolers) We have space for a few small coolers (soft coolers are best).

Travis is a fully licensed fishing guide in Maryland. Additionally, he's a native of Southern Maryland and has been fishing these waters since he was a child. He's a full-time teacher, and has been teaching for over 20 years and enjoys sharing his passion and knowledge of the Chesapeake Bay. His fishing adventures are focused on helping you become a better angler while enjoying a wonderful day with your friends and family on the Bay. It will be a “hands-on” or a “hands off” light tackle fishing experience. It's totally up to the anglers to decide. You'll have the unique opportunity to have a personalized experience. ''Whatever it takes'' is his motivation to catch fish or to simply spend time on the water having fun. Make your reservation today.
