Fin Hunter Charter Fishing

Deale Road
Deale MD, United States

Fin Hunter Charters specializes in light tackle fishing adventures on the Chesapeake Bay. If you need a fishing story, Captain Tim is your guide. With the fishing opportunities abound, the Chesapeake Bay is a unique estuary. It is home to Striped Bass, Bluefish, Spanish Mackerel, Croaker, Redfish, and White Perch.

Conveniently located just a shore drive from DC, Baltimore, and Annapolis, the crew invite you to join them aboard the “Fin Hunter”. She is a 32-foot pilothouse, perfect for accommodating up to six anglers. The “Fin Hunter” comes powered by a 330 HP Cummins engine and is well-prepared for the current bite. Her navigational electronics include Furuno fish finder and radar, a VHF radio, and Simrad NSS GPS. Inside, there is a toilet, a much needed thing when spending your day on the water!

All Chesapeake Bay fishing trips with Captain Tim can be customized to meet your specific needs. In late winter and early spring, the crew head to the local warm water for Striped Bass. Further into spring, the trophy season comes to the waters of the Mid Bay Area out of Breezy Point. In the summer and autumn months, you could join the crew in the waters out of Deale. Come winter, and you could enjoy the incredible fishery around the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel.

All trips come with everything you need to make a great catch possible. You will be provided with gear, tackle, bait, and lures. You won’t have to worry about purchasing a fishing license, the captain got you covered. Catch-and-release is encouraged, but you can feel free to keep your catch within the recreational fishing limits.

The bite was a little slow to start with but after changing location the bite was on and we had steady action for several hours capturing our limit

Picked fin hunter charters for proximity and I’m glad I did. We had a blast!  The captain put us on the fish right away and the fun never stopped. My children are 7 and 11 and he was great with them! We all had a fantastic time and if we are ever in this area again, I’ll be sure to book another trip with captain Tim. Two thumbs up and a definite recommend.

Enjoyed having Abel and his family on board today!  It was great fishing and non stop action for a great family.  Very polite and well behaved kids who got the hang of how to catch rockfish in short order!

I have been fortunate enough to have Capt Timmy take me out on trips for over 10 years now (trolling, light tackle, live lining). He always does everything in his power to put us on the fish and is super knowledgeable. This recent trip was no different as we limited out within an hour. Captain and first mate were calm during the frenetic moments when we had 2-3 hookups at a time. Looking forward to the next trip…Highly recommended for great day on the water.
