Stevensville MD, United States

Chesapeake Bay Sport Fishing is a full service fishing charter operator that runs fishing charters on the Chesapeake between April and December every year. Join the experienced captain and crew and find out what Chesapeake Bay fishing is all about - big catches and good fun.

The newest addition to the fleet is the 46 ft ‘Vagabond’. This boat has been recently restored and is custom built to fish these waters. She is powered by twin 250HP Volvo engines, and comes equipped with Radar, GPS, Fish Finder, VHF radio, heating, toilet, stereo system, as well as a live bait tank. With a large and wide deck, she has ample space for up to six anglers to get comfortable.

Chesapeake Bay Sport Fishing specializes in fishing for Striped Bass with light and heavy tackle, bottom fishing, and trolling. They use a range of quality Penn and Okuma reels matched with Ande rods, and are ready for anything with over 70 combinations of gear. All this is included in the trip price, as well as fishing licenses for everyone on board. Cleaning and filleting of your catch is provided, with a tip for the first mate being gratefully appreciated.

Chesapeake Bay Sport Fishing can arrange alternate pickup and drop off points on Chesapeake Bay or its tributaries. They can also organize your next special occasion, including birthdays, bachelor parties, corporate events and team building, booze cruises, as well as scenic Bay and Lighthouse tours, and they offer catering packages at an additional cost.

About the Captain

Stevensville, Maryland, United States
Member since November 2015
I have been fishing for over 36 years, and have spent the past 20 years exploring the Eastern seaboard between Florida and New England. In 1992 I moved to Maryland, where I have been fishing the Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic Ocean, however, as I now reside in the Annapolis area, the Chesapeake Bay has become my regular fishing grounds.
