The Marion - Chesapeake Bay Fishing

8188 Forest Glen Drive
Pasadena MD, United States

The Marion understands that everyone needs a fish story. Fish aboard this boat, and you’ll reel in a big one!

Captain Randy and his popular crew specialize in making memorable fishing adventures for kids of all ages. Docked just half an hour from the Baltimore and Washington Beltways, this is your chance to fish the scenic Upper and Middle Chesapeake Bay between Baltimore and Chesapeake Beach with a fun and enthusiastic crew.

The Marion is a classic Deadrise boat that was built specifically for fishing the Bay. Both fast and comfortable, she is fitted out with 12 fishing stations to allow groups to get the most out of their time on the water. And when you are not fishing, simply enjoy relaxing on the comfortable seating inside the boat, enjoying the views of this magnificent waterway. With an enclosed bathroom with a sink on board, you will not have to sacrifice your comfort to go fishing.

You won’t be sitting around for long. In fact, you will be fishing within half an hour of leaving the dock. Your target species will be anything from the famous Striped Bass to Trout and Bluefish, depending on the season.

Early Spring is the best time to catch a trophy Striper - fish from mid April until mid May and you will be in with the best chance of catching a huge fish. That’s not to say that summer fishing isn’t also good - try chumming or live lining to catch a Striped Bass on light tackle, or come slightly later in the year to troll for Bluefish and Sea Trout. Family groups might be more interested in bottom fishing for species such as Perch, Catfish, Spot, and Croakers - it’s up to you.

Fresh bait is provided for you to use - you will generally be live lining with spot or chumming with menhaden. All rods and reels are provided for you to try the best local fishing techniques, and the crew will also clean and fillet your catch at the end of your adventure.

Charters run from Mid-April through December.
