I have been fishing the middle Chesapeake Bay my entire life. I started out as a first mate on several charter boats while gaining my U.S. Coast Guard 50-ton Captain's License. When the opportunity to buy a charter boat with one of my best friends, U.S. Coast Guard Certified Captain Matt Maceron, came up – we set the hook! Let's go fishing.
