Let's celebrate Veterans Day by going fishing! The Chesapeake Bay offers some of the hottest striper fishing that there is to be had on the eastern seaboard. Some call it Rockfishing, Striper Fishing or Striped Bass Fishing but I call it fun! We will be going out on the waters of Maryland's Chesapeake Bay aboard the “Carrie Sue” and we are going after big fish. As the days get shorter and the water temperature starts to drop, larger Rockfish will show up in deep water. Break out the trolling gear, now is the time to round-up feeding fish on the move.

As a U.S. Coast Guard licensed Charter Captain, Hank has more than 35 years experience guiding fishing parties on the Chesapeake Bay. The "Carrie Sue" a custom-designed fiberglass 46X16' charterboat powered by twin turbo-charged diesel engines, certified by the U.S. Coast Guard to carry 30 passengers. A spacious cockpit, large dinette and stand-up private head provide plenty of room for a large group to go in first class comfort. The "Carrie Sue" is owned and operated by Capt. Hank, who has the knowledge and experience to make your fishing expedition a safe and memorable occasion. Fishing aboard the "Carrie Sue" you are provided with the best tackle and terminalgear available. All you need to bring is plenty of food and drink and we will take care of the rest.
