Chills Light Tackle Guide Service

Chills Light Tackle Guide Service invites you for an enjoyable fishing experience in the waters of Maryland’s Chesapeake Bay. Fishing alone or with up to 3 other anglers, you’ll have the support of Captain Chuck Hill all the way. He is a USCG Master Licensed Captain and a Licensed Maryland Fishing Guide whose goal is for you to have fun and catch fish.

Captain Chuck will take you out to Maryland’s Chesapeake Bay waters, where an abundance of fish species can be targeted year round. You can target Striped Bass, Yellow and White Perch, Bluefish, Catfish, and Crappie. You can decide whether you wish to target just one or multiple species. You call the shots.

Chills Light Tackle Guide Service will take you out on 24’ Sportsman Masters center console, powered by a 300 HP Yamaha Outboard. She’s decked out with dual power poles, and a remote-controlled trolling motor featuring “Spotlock”, which combine to make this the ultimate guide vessel. This vessel also possesses dual 12” Fishfinder screens with radar. She’s fully equipped with all USCG-required safety equipment such as lifejackets, first aid kit and a CPR trained crew, too.

For an unforgettable fishing experience, make sure you follow Guide Chuck’s advice and bring your camera so you can capture the most magnificent moments on the water. And your catch, of course!
