Kayak Fishing


Capt. Chris Dollar specializes in fly or light tackle fishing-either by kayak or boat. Explore the Chesapeake's marsh guts & glide across grass flats to fish for rockfish, bluefish, speckled trout, & puppy drum. The Chesapeake's quiet waters are ideal for light tackle & fly angling.

Capt. C$ fishes from Native Watercraft kayaks and an open, US Coast Guard approved Privateer center console skiff, powered by a 90-hp Yamaha from Danny's Marine and modern Garmin & ICOM electronics. It's an excellent fishing platform for Mothership Yak trips or two anglers looking to catch rockfish, bluefish, and other gamefish on light tackle and fly gear.


Need a bigger boat? Capt. Chris$ 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 custom 35-foot Markley is US Coast Guard approved to carry up to six passengers. Have an even larger group? We partner with other Captains so we can also accommodate you as well.




The Chesapeake's quiet waters are perfect for kayak fishing. You'll fish on Native Watercraft Kayaks, the lightest, most stable, standup fishing yaks on the water. We use only high-quality fishing gear and tackle, including St. Croix Rods, the best rods on Earth, Shimano reels, Costa sunglasses and Yeti coolers.
