It has a maximum cruising speed of 40 knots and can comfortably take up to 3 guests.  The boat is rigged with navigational electronics, which include a GPS, a VHF radio, and a Humminbird Helix fish finder. A wireless trolling motor is fitted on board for a quiet ride, as well as a live bait tank and an ice-box to help your catch stay fresh during the day.

Whether you are looking to butt heads with a 30-pound Striped Bass in knee-deep water or with Channel Catfish from the clear depths, River Fishing Adventure will accommodate all your needs. On your trip, you will mainly be fishing for Striped Bass, Hybrid Bass, Largemouth Bass, Spotted Seatrout, Smallmouth Bass, Carp, and Catfish.

In order to protect the world’s resources, River Fishing Adventure is a strong advocate of catch-and-release. Conservation is the key to keep the fish for the future generations to enjoy. However, you have an option to keep a legal limit of Trout, White Bass, Crappie, and Catfish.
A trip with River Fishing Adventure comes inclusive with all you need to make a successful catch possible. You will be provided with rods, reels, and tackle, as well as live bait and lures. If you want, you could bring your own food with you.

Marty Petza is an angler with a “sixth sense.” He is a real threat to any fish, always knowing where the fish are hiding. Marty has over 34 years of experience on the water, having chased fish of all sizes. Once a serious tournament angler, he is now a family man. Captain Marty has successfully participated in B.A.S.S. Pro / Am, RedMan, and his local federation tournaments, which have given him an interest of the industry along with cash and boats. He was a state champion in BP's very first CastingKids competition in 1991, and at the age of 13, he was the youngest sponsored tournament angler by companies such as Gambler Boats, STORM Lures, Versitex Fishing Rods, and several other tackle manufacturers. Marty has given numerous seminars across the East Coast and written various articles in early Maryland BASS Federation magazine.
