Kayak Fishing


From rockfish & bluefish to speckled trout & puppy drum, Capt. Chris Dollar specializes in fly or light tackle fishing-either by kayak or boat-the Chesapeake's many creeks and rivers. Got a new boat & looking to speed up your learning curve? Capt. C$ offers instruction as well.

Now through the fall, Capt. C$ has teamed up with Capt. Mark Galasso of Tuna the Tide charters, who has more than 40 years experience fishing the Bay. Capt. Mark’s 24-foot  center console, powered by a 300-hp Yamaha and loaded with state-of-the-art electronics, is an ideal fishing platform for 2-3 anglers looking to catch rockfish, bluefish, and other gamefish on light tackle and fly gear. Need a bigger boat? Capt. Mark’s custom 35-foot Markley is US Coast Guard approved to carry up to six passengers. Have an even larger group? Capt. Mark can also accommodate you as well.

We fish from Native Watercraft Kayaks, the lightest, most stable, standup fishing yaks on the water. Explore marsh guts and glide across grass flats to fish for rockfish, bluefish, speckled trout, croakers and puppy drum. We use only high-quality gear and tackle.
