Too Much Sportfishing – Maryland

29 reviews
Going fast!

Hook up with Captain James for either a half or full day of a fun-filled adventure, fishing out of Ocean City, Maryland. Fish the bay, the waters close to shore, or the nearshore wrecks. With over three decades of recreational and commercial fishing experience, Capt. James knows the waters like the back of his hand.

The vessel "Too Much" is a 23′ center console. She was built in Hatteras, North Carolina by Tideline designs. She’s a one of a kind, hand-built, custom Carolina design. Her proud bow and sharp entry offer a stable, dry ride even in choppy conditions. Her clean spacious deck provides a secure platform during fishing. She is one comfortable vessel!

Too Much Sportfishing specializes in light tackle, bottom fishing, and fly fishing. If you’re after Seabass, Tautog, or big Flounder, your captain will take you fishing along nearshore wrecks. Spot, Croakers, Bluefish, Rockfish (Stripers), and Flounder are all available in the bay.

For the thrill of a lifetime, why not try an evening of shark fishing? You can expect to target Sharpnose, Sandbar, and Sand Tigers up to 300 lbs (catch and release only).

Too Much Sportfishing offers a hands-on approach. They like to teach the finer points of the sport, from fishing techniques, and knot tying, to understanding conditions and locating fish.

Bring your family and friends and take to the seas with Capt. James for an adventure you won’t forget!

Your gear, tackle, bait, soft drinks, and fishing license are all included in the price. When you return to shore your catch will be cleaned and bagged.  Take your catch home with you and enjoy your fresh fillet for dinner!
