Hook Mash Charter Fishing

Hook Mash Charter Fishing offers the ultimate platform for large groups looking for fun fishing in the Chesapeake Bay. Based out of Tracey’s Landing, MD, you are less than an hour from D.C. and Baltimore, and right in the heart of Maryland fishing territory, with great inshore species to be found pretty much as soon as you get out from the dock.

The “Hook Mash” is a 42 ft Evans fiberglass boat which can comfortably accommodate up to 12 passengers. The “Hook Mash” is equipped with everything you will need for an amazing fishing trip, including state of the art Furuno and Garmin electronics to make sure you find the best spots, high quality fishing tackle to bring them in, and a head for extra convenience aboard, as well as a heated interior to shelter between bites if the weather turns foul. The best thing about this vessel though is the sheer amount of space on deck, giving you ample room to fish, sit, relax, or whatever you want to do on your day out!.

Hook Mash Charter Fishing specializes in targeting Striped Bass and other inshore species in the Chesapeake Bay - that is what they do and they’re good at it! They know all the best spots and what is biting where, and will supply all the gear you will need to troll, spin, jig, and bottom fish your day away - Just remember to bring a cooler to stuff full of the delicious fish you catch!
