Hallock’s Grace Charters is a family owned and operated business. Trips depart from their private location in Shady Side, Maryland where you can bring your family aboard for a hands-on fishing or crabbing experience. Join their captain and crew anytime from April through November and come experience the best of Chesapeake Bay!

You will fish aboard a 42’ Provincial powered by a 450 HP Diesel engine. This vessel is fitted with top of the line gear, featuring the likes of Okuma, Shimano, and Penn. Your captain will do his best to have the live bait well full when you arrive. There’s room for six passengers on board and children of all ages are welcome.

At the helm is Captain Thomas Hallock, a fifth-generation local fisherman who knows these waters well. He will help you spend your time on Chesapeake Bay fishing for Striped Bass, Bluefish, White Perch, Spanish Mackerel, and more.

Capt. Tom specializes in fishing with light tackle. He will help you land your catch using the most effective method, whether it’s jigging, trolling, or drift fishing. You are welcome to keep your catch and he will clean and fillet it for you.

Crab season starts in June, when you are welcome aboard to fish for this delicacy or to enjoy a crab feast on board with your family and friends. Capt. Tom also offers a deluxe trip which includes a seafood lunch or dinner when you return to shore.

Hallock’s Grace Charters include a fishing license and all the gear you need. You will find free parking and private restrooms on location.

Book your next trip and come indulge in everything that Chesapeake Bay has to offer!
