JadeLady Charters

Operating out of Stevensville, JadeLady Charters specialize in inshore fishing and crabbing. They are located on Maryland’s eastern coast, at Kentmorr marina, fishing the magnificent Chesapeake Bay, home of the Striped Bass and Maryland Blue Crab.

Born and raised on the Chesapeake, Captain Marion Kaufman has been a captain for more than 35 years. He developed a passion for fishing at a very young age and has spent innumerable days on the water, both commercially and recreationally. Capt. Marion can’t wait to share his knowledge with you.

The “JadeLady” is a 42’ custom-made bay boat built by O’Neal Jones that has been incredibly well maintained over the past years. It can take up to 6 anglers and features a 300 HP John Deere 6076 engine with a maximum cruising speed of 16 knots. 

The boat includes all safety gear and marine electronics needed for a top day on the water. The cockpit area is very spacious and features a dinette and an electric full-head bathroom for maximum comfort.

The captain will show you the most productive inshore fisheries and teach you the most productive fishing methods, including light tackle bottom fishing and trolling. You’ll be focusing on Striped Bass, but you can also expect to land White Perch, Bluefish, and Crabs.

When it comes to having kids on board, the preferable age is 5 and older. Younger children can go too, but the parents need to be very dutiful.

All packages include top-notch tackle by Penn, lures, and bait if needed (prepared in advanced and sometimes additionally charged). Fishing licenses are also covered by the charter.

After the trip, the crew will even clean and package your catch for you to take home. The first mate will be present on most of the trips and 15-20% gratuity for his efforts is customary.

JadeLady Charters will make sure to provide you with everything you might need for a productive day. Just bring any food/drinks you prefer and welcome aboard for a fun day!
