Real Nauti Charters is based in Kent Island, the Eastern Shore of Maryland. If you feel like chasing big fish and making your very own catch of the day possible, the crew has a trip for you.

Explore the finest fishing opportunities that the mid-Chesapeake Bay area has to offer. Join Capt. Christopher for a fun and productive day fishing or crabbing.

The season begins in April and goes through December. Whenever you decide to go out, you will enjoy a day of bottom fishing, trolling, popping, spinning or jigging. If you want to try bowfishing or catch fish with a fly, just let your captain now and he will accommodate your needs. You will need to bring your own gear for those trips.

Real Nauti specializes in targeting large Striped Bass, Bluefish, Spotted Seatrout, Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish, and Flounder, along with Ray and Crabs.

Capt. Christopher will take you out aboard a 42’ Evans Pilothouse boat. It is a Chesapeake Bay-style fishing machine, equipped with the latest fishing and safety gear. The boat comes powered by a 375 HP Caterpillar Diesel engine and has plenty of space for up to 6 passengers. All aboard!

All trips come inclusive with rods, reels, tackle, lures, and bait if needed. All of the fishing licenses are also included in the price. When you’re done fishing, your catch will be cleaned for you. Just bring your own food and drinks, and welcome onboard!
