Summertime Rockfishing and Cobia coming soon!!!

Hello everyone, First off, I'd like to thank everyone who fished with us this spring during the trophy season, I appreciate the patience of everyone who came on board with us. We had a few days that were like old times getting our limit in short order, a few where we were thankful for what we had but wanted more, and a few days that were more or less a boat ride with maybe a bite or two. Due to some other obligations and the warmer temperatures getting the big fish out of here a little sooner than usual, we won't be fishing again until May 16th. We will be fishing in the Potomac for the two fish per person season through midJune. With the longer daylight hours now, we offer AM and PM trips for these rockfish. We will be trolling small baits or doing some light tackle chumming. As of now we will be attempting to do make up trips on Friday afternoons, May 17th, 24th, and 31st, so take a halfday off work and come on down to get on board with us, spots are limited to the first 8 people and prices are $125 per person. These trips typically have a lot of action for everyone to get in on the cranking. It's also not too early to start thinking about booking your summertime trip for cobia. We tentatively will be starting to fish for them June 17th, possibly sooner depending on when the fish show up. Take advantage of our weekday afternoon cobia trips when the traffic and pressure is usually a little less on the fish and sometimes we have the whole Bay to ourselves. These trips will continue throughout the summer and our full day trips will include bluefish, Spanish mackerel, bottomfishing along with cobia so bring the family on down. Looking forward to seeing you out there.

Fishing season is finally getting close!!!


Hello everyone, Hope you are doing well and are getting ready for warmer weather which should be right around the corner...I think. We are only a month away from the start of our fishing season and we are busy doing some routine maintenance and a few other odds and ends in the final month before we hit the water again. Just want to let you know that we only have a handful of dates left for the Trophy season, we have 4/25, 4/28, 5/5, 5/7, and 5/11. We do still have plenty of dates for the 2 fish per person starting 5/16 and will be running morning and evening trips for the smaller rockfish through June 9th out of Olverson's Marina on the Potomac River before we head back to Reedville for cobia season. We will start cobia fishing June 10th and will continue all summer long. We will also be doing some bottomfishing, trolling, and chumming for blues, Spanish Mackerel, Spot, Croaker, and Red Drum. We o have a new addition this summer to our schedule and will be doing some late afternoon cobia fishing, these trips will leave the dock around 2 p.m. and fish until dark. These trips will be great for the families with busy daily schedules or for the guys that want to clock out after lunch and head down for an afternoon getaway. Give us a call or shoot us an email to get a date picked out for your group or for more information.

Spring Trophy Season and Full Time Fishing

    Hello everyone, We have some exciting and nervous news to share with our customers. This year we will be running trips fulltime all year long. I have left my position with Omega Protein to focus on expanding the business and working on the water commercially full time. What this means is that any date from the start of trophy season through the end of the year will be available for charter. I will be crabbing and oystering on the days we aren't running trips but will be available 7 days a week from April 20th through December 31st. This is a big jump for us, but we are looking forward to spending that much more time on the water. Trophy season begins this year on April 20th and runs through May 15th this year and we will be ready by then to get after the big boys. This is your best chance of the year to get some of our biggest fish of the year and watching us fish a 34 line spread. From May 15th until the 2nd week of June will be chasing the schoolie stripers on light tackle out of Olverson's Marina on the Potomac River before we head back to Reedville to start our summertime fishing catching Cobia, bottomfishing for spot and croaker, or trolling for blues and Spanish Mackerel. These late May, early June trips are action packed with lots of light tackle action. We have also redone some of the website and have a few new options for trips this summer, take some time and check it out and get your group together to get on board with us. Give us a call or shoot us an email today for more information or to get your date booked.

Fall Rockfishing is almost here!!!

     Hello everyone, I hope everyone is still above water after the extremely wet summer we have had and is ready for some rockfishing! The season is just around the corner and getting here quickly. We are a little late getting organized for our fall season due to some heavy commercial fishing this summer which will continue into the fall. We do still have some dates available for some light tackle livelining and trolling dates as well. We will start off livelining and do it as long as the weather allows until trolling picks up sometime in November and continue through the end of the year. The dates we still have available are 10/6,10/7,10/21,10/27,10/28,11/10,11/18,11/25,12/2,12/16-12/31 excluding Christmas Eve and Day. These are some of the best dates of the year to get your rockfish fix on. Give us a call today to get on the books with your friends, family, or coworkers. Looking forward to getting back in action this fall and hoping to see you on board.

Spring Trophy Season is right around the corner!!!

      Hello everyone, It may not feel like it on a daily basis, but spring is here believe it or not, and with spring comes spring trophy season. We are finishing up a few last minute touches on the railway and hope to be getting wet soon. We will be getting underway in just over 2 weeks, we are excited and ready to go for opening day on the 21st. We do still have 2 openings for your chance at a trophy, 4/23 and 5/13 are still available. 4/23 is a prime date early in the season and with that being said if no one books it for a full charter, we will be doing a make up trip that day for $125 per person which includes tip for the first 8 to sign up. If neither of these dates work to get your rockfish fix on, don't worry we have dates available for the schoolies in midMay- June 3rd. We have 5/19, 5/20, 5/26, 5/27, 5/28 and 6/3 available for rockfishing before we kick off cobia fishing on 6/9. We were just handed down our cobia regulations for the season a couple weeks ago and for the most part it's the same as last year. We can keep 3 fish per day 40" minimum, one of the 3 can be over 50" until Sept. 30th, but we have the gaff back and as many of you know coercing a cobia into the net can be a task so we are glad to have the gaff back at our disposal. Even though we are only allowed to keep 3, we can practice catch and release so everybody on board gets a chance to battle the man in the brown suit!!! Give us a call or shoot us an email to sign up for our walk on trip or to get your family, coworkers, or friends on board for a great day on the Bay!!!
