Just make sure you’re going out when the tide is in and the bay water is clear, or go out a bit and catch stripers.

First timers would love this place to fish. Most Captain's are on one mission. For you to have fun. Never had a bad experience in OC Maryland. Some better than others but always great.

Check the weather forecast and plan ahead! We happened to book on a very windy and cold day that was much colder than the annual average for this time of year (second week of May).

Listen to the Captain, if he does not think it makes sense to go out, reschedule. We were lucky, and had a nice weather day.

Weather is always a crap shoot, but the fish are out there. Its easy to find a great boat to fish with.

Yes, if this is your first time going out take your motion sickness pills at night and again in the morning. Good luck fishing. Safe seas and plenty of fish, The Moore Family

We fished in a canal, on the pier, on the Judith M (head boat) and with Sportsfishing East Coast. In all that had more fish than we could eat. A Great trip!!

Do a bay side fishing trip before you book a all day big fishing trip to make sure you enjoy it.

Take trip for sea bass easy first time catch, good eating, lots of fun. Don't judge the trip by the size of the boat but the history of the captain.

We had a great day catching sea bass. Not an expert on fishing though, so do your own research before signing on.

Keep your options open because the sea doesn’t have to cooperate with your plans.

Keep an open mind. There are lots of species to be caught. Any day spent fishing is a day well spent.

Late spring to early summer be sure to dress warm. I can get cold out on the water.

If you're not used to being on a boat, bring dramamine, sun screen, and dress (in layers) for 10-15 degrees colder than the expected temperature and let the captain and mate do their job.
