Stormy Petrel Charters

Fishing out of the attractive town of Deale, Maryland, Stormy Petrel Charters offers Chesapeake Bay sportfishing charters. Captain Steve Goins has a lifetime of experience in these waters, so he’ll make sure you have a productive trip.

At 25’, the Lil’Petrel is a Parker boat that has been designed specifically for comfortable and effective fishing. It has plenty of space for 4 people and offers a reliable and smooth ride to everyone from beginners to lifelong fishermen.

Cruising at 25 knots, the boat will get you to the fishing grounds fast. The vessel is fitted with all the necessary electronics, fishfinding equipment, and coolers to keep your catch cold. There is also a porta-potty on board for your comfort.

All levels of fishermen will benefit from the instruction and advice given on board. Depending on the season, your trip could involve trolling with outriggers for trophy Striped Bass, or light tackle fishing, jigging, and bottom fishing for a variety of other species, such as Fluke (Summer Flounder), Croaker, Perch, and the exciting Bluefish.

Everyone is welcome aboard, whether you are a family group, a bachelor party, a corporate group, or are just looking for a good old fashioned boys’ day out.

Whatever your background, you are sure to enjoy your day out fishing the beautiful Chesapeake Bay with Stormy Petrel Charters!
