Fin N' Feather Chesapeake Bay

Fin N’ Feather runs angling trips on the Chesapeake Bay and offers

Capt. Derick will share his vast knowledge and experience to ensure you have a fun day full of fishing. He specializes in bottom fishing and trolling, all to get you on that bite. This involves 8-hour trips, mainly fishing for rockfish, perch, and catfish, depending on the season and conditions on the day. You can keep anything you catch as long as it’s legal.

Your adventure begins on board a 32’ Albemarle boat that can fit a maximum of 6 anglers. The boat is fitted with a toilet and was updated in 2020 with new Cummins engines and a refurbished interior. The vessel has a full cabin and head so that the wife will approve! You’ll get to the fishing grounds and back in comfort. It’s also been equipped with new 2022 electronics, so if the fish are there, Capt. Derick will find them!

The price of your trip includes all the rods, reels, and terminal tackle you’ll need for a productive day on the water. No need to worry about fishing licenses, as they will be provided and handled by the charter. There will be a first mate on board to help you with anything you need. Tips for good service are appreciated. Children are welcome aboard.

Now offering hook and cook options with Dock of the Bay, the resteraunt we depart from. You hook them, and they’ll cook them for a hassle free meal with your fresh catch!

Book your trip now and hit the water with Fin N’ Feather Chesapeake Bay.
