Mid-May thru the summer, fishing the upper and middle bay areas near the  Chesapeake Bay Bridge.
From this time on I fish out of the Magothy River, just north of the Bay Bridge and moving south to the mid-Bay areas of Deale, Eastern Bay  and the Choptank rivers.

We fish for Striped Bass, locally known as Rockfish, White Perch, Spot, Blues and more. Guaranteed to bring back some great family memories.
