Have you tried fishing the famous Chesapeake Bay? If you haven’t now’s the time! If you have, you’ll appreciate the service that My Girl Charters provides you with. Captain Steve Murray is more than happy to take you into the Bay and put you on top of the hottest honey holes around.

You’ll start your adventure on board Capt. Steve’s 35’ Crusader. She was originally built in 1993 and restored in 2018 – old-fashioned quality combined with all the latest amenities. The boat can fit 6 anglers in comfort, with everyone fishing at the same time.

Capt. Steve and his first mate are professional, knowledgeable, and hard-working. They’ll instruct and assist you on your excursion, no matter your skill level.

You’ll fish the Chesapeake Bay and surrounding waters for several species. The main target is Striped Bass, with Bluefish and Perch following up. Spanish Mackerel, Sea Trout, Croaker, and other species can be reeled in as bycatch.

The charter will supply you with all the necessary rods, reels, and tackle, but you’re free to bring your favorite rod if you’d like to. You can combine your fishing trip with cruising around scenic locations – nothing beats action followed by history and sightseeing!

Book a trip with My Girl Charters today and cast off on an unforgettable fishing outing in the Chesapeake Bay.

Captain Steve Murray got into fishing by accident – he met up with a captain at a marina that taught him how to fish. That was over 30 years ago and Capt. Steve hasn't shown any signs of slowing down any time soon! He's an avid angler and one of his proudest moments was reeling in a monster Striper, measuring almost 53'' in length.
