Fish are elusive prey, fleeing into reefs to evade anglers and spontaneously sprouting legs to run away from Charles Darwin. Track down slippery targets with this Groupon.
$99 for a Three-Hour Charter for Two to Six People ($260 Value)
Groups of two to six embark on a fishing, crabbing, or sightseeing charter. USCG-licensed captains supply all bait, rods, and equipment needed to snag rockfish, perch, bluefish, and catfish or haul blue crabs from the deep. Afterward, the day's catch is steamed by the Hard Yacht Cafe, giving customers a meal fresher than a candle that smells like clean laundry. For sightseeing charters, the captain tours the bay and points out Baltimore landmarks such as the USS Constellation and Fort Carroll.
Upper Chesapeake Bay Charters
Upper Chesapeake Bay Charters' USCG-licensed captains and career fishermen know the Chesapeake Bay waters like the back of their hands. They use this knowledge to ferry small groups on charters aboard one of the company’s two vessels, helping clients to snag catfish and use trotlines to mine blue crabs. During all trips, the expert fishermen supply equipment, clean catches, and snap pictures of people holding fish while looking quietly triumphant, like a cat who just learned how to flush a toilet.
Additionally, Upper Chesapeake Bay Charters' crew uses their watercraft to embark on sightseeing tours. They point out wildlife as well as Baltimore landmarks such as the USS Constellation.
