Schooled Up Charters Solomons MD

Visit the quaint community of Solomons, Maryland, to explore this little island on the banks of the Patuxent River, and enjoy fishing in the Chesapeake Bay. Book a trip with Capt. Travis Fishing Charters, and give yourself the chance to bag some fresh fish. Captain Travis Long will show you around and he’ll do his best to make sure you have a memorable experience.

You’ll be exploring the local waters on board the 27’ Judge Yachts center console model from 2018. She’s spacious enough to take on groups of up to 6 guests per trip and comes fitted with a single 300 HP Suzuki engine, helping reach top speeds of 30 knots. It also boasts fishfinding equipment too, so you know you’re in good hands.

This charter covers the inshore area of the Chesapeake Bay. Though you might encounter fish all year round, action is generally slow from January ‘til the end of April. You can target Redfish, White Perch, Black Drum, and Striped Bass from May until January. And when it comes to fishing techniques, bottom fishing and light tackle are available.

Children are welcome and the crew will provide you with the necessary fishing equipment and lures. Additionally, the charter covers your Maryland fishing license. You can bring your own snacks and water and, if you get lucky, you’ll get to keep your prized catch. What’s more, the crew will help you with the cleaning!

Spend a relaxing day out on the water having fun and making memories with Capt. Travis Fishing Charters!
