Vistaladyfish is fishing from locations in Havre de Grace, MD, and Baltimore, MD. You’re invited to spend a day on the water of the world-famous Chesapeake Bay! Capt. Jeff Popp’s boat follows Bass year-round. It allows him to be mobile and fish from a range of ports.

Capt. Jeff will do his best to make sure you have a fun day full of fishing. This involves 3 to 5-hour trips, mainly fishing for Striped Bass, depending on the season and conditions on the day. On these trips, you can expect to use techniques such as light tackle, bottom fishing, fly fishing, drift fishing, jigging, popping, and spinning.

Your fishing adventure starts on a 23’ Sea Ox boat that can safely take up to 3 anglers. This center console has got GPS, a fishfinder, a large livewell, all the light tackle equipment, and various safety features.

All rods, reels, and terminal tackle are included in the price so you can focus on what really matters, fishing. Your trip will include all the necessary fishing licenses for the day. The crew will clean and fillet your catch for you to take home at the end of the trip.
