Vista Lady Fish LLC

Vista Lady Fish invites you to spend a day on the waters of the world-famous Chesapeake Bay any day of the year! The crew of Vista Lady follows Striped Bass on the Chesapeake Bay year round, so any time you want to go out is good for them. They know how the fish moves, when it spawns and feeds and are able to use their knowledge and experience to put you on the fish.

Fishing is done aboard their Bay Built Classic boat that can take you and up to five friends fishing. She is 42’ in length with a 13.5’ beam. Powered by a 350 HP Caterpillar engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 20 knots, this boat is steady and fast. It features a fishfinder to locate the fish, an icebox for the catch, a livewell for the live bait, and many safety features.

The vessel is comfortable and therefore suitable for children as long as they are accompanied by adults. There is a toilet on board for your convenience, as well as air-conditioning inside the cabin. With ample deck space and a good amount of shade provided by the cover, this boat is great for all day adventures.

Captain Jeff Popp has fished the waters of Maryland professionally since 1994 and is always up for making the most of the trip for his guests. Jeff will provide St Croix rods, Penn and Shimano reels, tackle, and professional guidance. Your fishing licenses are included and so is the fish processing at the end of the trip.
