Do not recommend, you only get 10 min of fishing the entire time, bit its the mate, not you who does the fishing, you only watch
The fish were not biting and it's not the crews fault, but I bought a fishing trip for two and we didn't get our hands on a reel at all. The crew does all the fishing for everybody on the boat and if your reel catches anything, they let you reel it in and they do the rest. Basically you are in a 5 hour trip, your turn is only 10 min the entire trip, and you are just hanging out watching the "mate"
Great boat and the Captain and mate made sure we caught lots of fish. They kept our hooks baited and we were pulling in fish every time we dropped our lines. I've been out with Captain Stu several times and I've always had a good day on the water.
This was my very first fishing experience, and I enjoyed it immensely. The fish were large and the staff was great!
Wonderful day on
the water. We caught LOTS of fish and the crew was great. Very helpful and we recommend Hook Mash Charters.
From Our Editors
On half- and full-day fishing charters aboard the 50-foot Hook Mash, anglers reel in rockfish, and other underwater denizens of Chesapeake Bay, depending on the season. Crew members are on hand to help with nets and gear, leaving passengers free to focus on casting lines and posing for photos with fresh catches. At the boat's controls, a trusty captain monitors radar, fish finders, chart plotters, and other equipment to help locate the best spots for snagging fish. The company also offers sightseeing cruises past lighthouses and waterfront restaurants.
