Stormy Petrel Charters

533 Deale Road
Deale MD, United States

Fishing out of the attractive town of Deale, Maryland, Stormy Petrel Charters offer Chesapeake Bay sport fishing charters from an easily accessible location that is under an hour’s drive from Washington DC and Baltimore.

At 42 ft, the Stormy Petrel is a locally built boat by Robbins Yachts that has been designed specifically for comfortable and effective fishing in the Chesapeake Bay. She has plenty of space for everyone on board and offers a reliable and smooth ride to everyone from beginners to lifelong fishermen. Cruising at 20 knots, the boat will get you to the fishing grounds fast, and her recent interior renovation gives anglers a comfortable space in which to relax while traveling. There is also a head (marine restroom) on board for your comfort.

All levels of fisherman (and woman) will benefit from the instruction and advice given aboard Stormy Petrel Charters. 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.
