  • Bunky's Charter Boats
    Bunky's has been sailing the open seas since purchasing his first charter boat in 1978. Naming it after his wife, Kathy, he used that boat to catch oysters that he subsequently sold in their marina shop. Over time, his fleet grew to 3 charter boats and 16 rental boats. With more boats, Captain Bunky's able to share his love of the water with his community and one of the ways he does this is by inviting people to try their hand at captaining a ship for a day. Tourists can also come aboard his 40- to 47-foot vessels to indulge in an afternoon of cruising, crabbing, or fishing for selkies on the Patuxent River or Chesapeake Bay.

  • Bass Akwards Fishing Charters
    For someone who spent his childhood fishing and his teenage years as a first mate, the role of captain seemed like a natural progression for L.J.K.'s Luke Koller. Now that he's steering his own way, Koller uses his expertise of southern Maryland's waters to steer groups to the best fishing spots, where they can reel in rockfish, bluefish, white perch, and trout. On his charter trips, boats are also equipped with multi-gallon fish boxes where they can store their catches or beer to give a particularly thirsty mackerel.

  • Miss Chesapeake Beach
    Miss Chesapeake spirits vacationers and die-hard anglers alike from its dock at Breezy Point Marina on chartered fishing expeditions. Captain Luke Thatcher and his crew of hyper-intelligent seagulls provide artificial bait, a fishing license, and allow passengers to bring their own snacks, lunches, and beer. Once everyone's fully kitted out, Captain Thatcher sets out across the bay, as Miss Chesapeake trails fishing lines and cuts watery swathes from Bloody Point to the Choptank River. After a full day of bamboozling fish, sun-soaked adventurers return to shore with coolers filled with their catch. Fish cleaners stand at the ready on the dock, happy to prep the newly netted seameats or step aside and let passengers to do it themselves.

Rob will carefully explain both the mechanical and theoretical aspects of fly-fishing while emphasizing only the catch-and-release method of fishing, as well as sustainable ways of exploring the water. Learn the basics of casting on grass or on water, knot tying, rods, reels, flies, entomology, hydrology, and more. All equipment is provided for the trip, as well as drink and snack rewards for staying on top of your fish-based fly game (lunch is optional and an additional $10 per person).
