Bay Bound Guide Service LLC

Captain Jonathan Bland aims to give his guests a true taste of the Chesapeake Bay. Hop aboard the ultimate light tackle boat, a beautiful 20’ Jones Brothers and see what the Bay has to offer! Each day out is an adventure catered to the exact style of fishing and desired species that you want.

His trips specialize in light tackle and fly fishing based out of Annapolis, Maryland. Within a short boat ride, you have the option to fish for multiple species throughout the day. If there is a special request or location you have always wanted to fish on the Chesapeake Bay he is also open to traveling to make the trip happen. Having fished almost all of the middle Bay region, there isn’t a place he hasn’t been or isn’t willing to try out!

Throughout the winter, he spends most of his time targeting Tidal Chain Pickerel and Yellow Perch in the Bay’s tributaries around the Annapolis area, and occasionally Striped Bass. In the spring, summer, or fall he targets a variety of species including Striped Bass, White Perch, Bluefish, Spanish Mackerel, and Speckled Trout.

The captain will provide all fishing rods, tackle, lures, and licensing. If you would like to keep fish, he’s happy to clean them for you once returning to the dock.

    Come out and see what these mini-Muskies have to offer! These lesser-known fish provide lots of action throughout the day. These trips are great for kids or adults - the perfect father/son trip. They are a blast to catch on the fly rod, due to their visual eats at the boat.

    In early spring big Blue Catfish come alive along the Chesapeake Bay. We target these fish by using cut bait and chum. Once a solid “chum slick” is formed the catfish bite heats up. These fish can weigh up to 40lbs, fight hard, and are great to eat. We usually fill the coolers with fish each outing. These are action packed trips great for kids or the family.

Capt. Jonathan runs trips out of Annapolis aboard a 17’ Boston Whaler. These waters are known for Striped Bass and Pickerel and he will show you how to catch them, whether you're fly fishing or jigging. With knowledge of the entire bay, he has a trick or two up his sleeve, and the only way to learn is to join him out on the water!
