Charter Fishing Guide for the Day

The Captain welcomes you to the L & T for your day fishing the Chesapeake Bay. We are not your typical Charter Boat experience. We are faster than most Charter Boats and we will cover more water to put you on the fish. We promise to work hard to increase your chances of a successful day on the water.

We provide our Guest with “Top of the line Equipment” specifically matched to what we are fishing for and where. For Light Tackle Fishing we use St. Croix Rods paired with Shimano Spinning Reels spooled with 20lb test braided line with a fluorocarbon leader. Expect to use the techniques of jigging lures (artificial baits) or cut bait or live lining spot, perch or eels. I want my Guest to feel the subtle strike of the fish along with the head shakes and the tug of war with the final reward of winning the battle to land the fish.

For the bigger fish (red drum and cobia) we are well equipped with a combination of conventional reels and heavy duty spinning reels spooled with 80lbs test braided line. We do not plan to lose a fish on the line.
