Herring Bay Charters is based in Deale, Maryland. The Captain and his crew fish the water of the Chesapeake Bay, specializing in catching Striped Bass, Bluefish, White Bass, Black Drum, and many other species. Herring Bay Charters can accommodate any angler’s needs, so your age and expertise don’t matter!
Enjoy your fishing adventure with Herring Bay Charters aboard a 38-foot boat, which comes powered by twin 200 HP Volvo engines. The vessel is fully rigged with navigational electronics, which include a GPS, a VHF radio, a fish finder, and a radar. There is an anchoring system carried on board, an ice-box, a toilet for your maximum comfort on the water, and a live bait tank. The boat can comfortably accommodate up to six anglers.
Herring Bay Charters offers six and eight-hour trips. If you want to fish for a trophy Striped Bass, the season starts in mid-April and lasts a month. If it’s a summer Striped Bass that you are after, then the best time to catch them would be mid-May to December. You will also get a chance to fish for Black Drum, Bluefish, Spanish Mackerel, and Weakfish.
Each fishing adventure with Herring Bay Charters comes inclusive with the licenses for you and your group, as well as rods, reels, tackle, lures, and live bait. The crew will clean and fillet the catch after the trip so that you can take it home with you and have for dinner. You can feel free to bring snacks and drinks in your cooler, along with sunscreen, proper clothing for the weather, and a camera. Alcoholic drinks are also allowed, but in moderation.

This trip looked promising, but ended up being a bust. The Captain was not open to anything. We bottom fished all day with the same bait and caught nothing, while other boats caught something. Sorry, we did catch something, a toad fish. The Captain was so worried about his anchor that we just drifted around alot, with him starting the boat and moving alot, which didn’t help any. After listening to the Captain talk from time to time, I felt that he was more worried about using up his gas and the Fishing trip that he was taking some family members on. Bottom line, we paid for his trip with his family, He did say that he was sorry that we didn’t catch any fish and that he would only charge us half price on the next trip. We all know that is not going to happen. Overall, just a Bad trip all around. Looking for new Captain!!!

We really enjoyed our trip with Captain Dale and John. Both showed great expertise and knowledge in their respective roles. They work extremely well as a team which is a great benefit for the customer. The boat was extremely clean and well kept.
Both were very accommodating and did not jump to conclusions or preconceived stereotypes.
A fantastic trip with excellent results (2 fish at about 60lbs. total) with great memories for many years to come. Planning on another trip in August.
