Prowler Fishing - Cape Charles

Prowler Fishing Charters operates out of Cape Charles, guiding clients towards awesome catches of trophy Striped Bass. Captain Louis Hocker grew up fishing the Chesapeake Bay and has returned to his native waters to share his love of them with clients on every trip.

The vessel you will be fishing aboard is a 42’ Hatteras sportfishing boat, which has been serving faithfully since 1974. She comes ready for battle, with GPS, fishfinder, outriggers, and a livewell filled to bursting with fresh live bait.

The vessel also has a spacious interior, with an enclosed head, a cabin, galley, and plenty of room to sit down and rest after hard-fought battles up on deck. On your way to and from the fishing grounds, you can also take in the views from her large flybridge.

Captain Louis comes from a line of local fishermen and started out for many years fishing in the waters of the Chesapeake Bay. He knows all the best spots for targeting the biggest Stripers, and has guided many happy clients to their personal best in these waters.

On each trip, you will be given high-quality fishing tackle for a variety of test strengths, and the option to troll, jig, or bottom fish to bring in your catch. Captain Louis will talk you through all his top techniques, and will have even first-time fishermen bringing in something special.

All Prowler FIshing Charters come with tackle, bait, and licenses for everyone on board. So all you have to do is show up with a head for adventure and a big cooler to take your fish home in.

Captain Louis has been fishing since he was a little boy with his father and grandfather. He loves fishing with guest as it gives him a great deal of satisfaction to see their smiling happy faces as they reel in their catch. He has 2 sons whom he has been taking fishing with him since they were able to walk, and they love it.
