Based out of Chesapeake Beach Maryland May and June and October and November and Solomons Island Maryland during July August and September.  March and April out of Colton Point Marina. Misty Blue Charters is your ticket to a memorable time on the water.

Come on aboard with Capt. Christopher, whose main priority is to get you on some fish. Expect to use techniques like light tackle, heavy tackle, bottom fishing, trolling, jigging, and spinning, based on the species you’re targeting. Speaking of which, you have the option of 4 to 9-hour trips, where you’ll be fishing for the likes of Bluefish, Spanish Mackerel, Bass, Perch, and Cobia, depending on the specific season and the day’s weather.

As for fishing licenses, everything will be taken care of by the captain so you don’t have to worry about it. You’ll be able to keep any legal species caught during the trip.

Children are welcome aboard so you’re good to get the young ones started early. Capt. Christopher runs trips together with his first mate, who’s there to help you with whatever you may need. Tips are always appreciated for a job well done.

Member since July 2022
I started fishing with my dad when I was 7 years old. During the fishing trip, he would put me in the helm seat and point to a landmark and tell me to steer for it. He would then handle all the lines. As I got older, I progressed into more of the role of the first mate. By the time I was 14, I was running the back of the boat taking care of all the fishing equipment. Besides working for my dad, I also mated for several captains on the dock. I took a break from fishing for a few years to serve my country in the US Navy. Once I was out, I continued my fishing career with my dad who owned and operated the Feathers. When I wasn't fishing, I was a career firefighter for Montgomery County MD. I retired at the rank of Master Firefighter. I bought my first charter boat in 1992. I am now on my fourth. She is a classic Chesapeake Bay Deadrise, built in 1958. I had the hull completely fiberglassed in early 2022. This is the first boat I am restoring since my father passed.
