Backwater Adventure Fishing Guide

This type of trip is not for everyone. The Captain suggest you wear light weight quick dry long sleeve shirt & pants and a hat. Bring your bug spray and sunscreen. We will be fishing the Tidal Creeks of the Lower Eastern Shore of Maryland. On this adventure we are constantly moving through the salt marsh from bend to bend to find the deep holes holding fish. Typically we will pull a few fish from a hole and have to move to another hole to find more fish. This is a unique way to experience the beauty of the salt marshes.

This is strictly a Light Tackle Fishing Trip. Our Guest are provided with “Top of the Line Equipment” to match where and what we are fishing for. We use St. Croix Rods paired with Shimano Spinning Reels spooled with 20lb test braided line using a fluorocarbon leader. Expect to use the techniques of jigging lures (artificial baits) or use cut bait with circle hooks. I want my Guest to feel the strike of the fish along with the head shakes and tug of war with the final reward of winning the battle to land the fish.  

Please include in the PayPal notes what charter service you would like to enjoy.
