Located on Kent Island, Biff Fishing Charters offers trips fishing for Striped Bass and Bluefish in the Chesapeake Bay. Captain Justin Kaufman has been fishing these waters for more than a decade and knows the area like the back of his hand.

Come and experience all the Chesapeake Bay has to offer on the 46’ Markley performance fishing boat “Biff.” Biff can carry up to 6 people and is propelled by a powerful 660 HP Caterpillar engine. It has a huge deck with ample space for everyone to get involved in the fishing action. The cabin offers protection from the elements in case of bad weather.

Everything needed to fish is included in the charter. When the crew goes trolling, they run up two 32 rods at a time making you extremely unlikely to come away empty-handed! Later in the season, they live line for Striped Bass by using live spot as bait on light tackle spinning rods. Whichever method you use, you are sure to have an enjoyable trip.

After the trip, anything you catch will be cleaned and filleted for your convenience, so you can take the fruits of your labor straight to the table. It’s on you to bring a pair of polarized sunglasses as well as some drinks and snacks if you’re so inclined.

Come on down and let Biff Fishing Charters show you what makes the Chesapeake Bay such a popular angling destination!
