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 short drive from DC, Baltimore, and Annapolis, the crew invites you to join them aboard the “Fin Hunter.” It is a 40’ Robbins, perfect for accommodating up to 6 anglers. The Fin Hunter comes powered by a 375 HP Cummins engine and is well-prepared for the current bite. Her navigational electronics include Furuno fishfinder 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 Capt. 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.

Join Fin Hunter Charter Fishing for a memorable fishing experience on the waters of the Chesapeake Bay!
