Kayak Fishing

FISH THE CHESAPEAKE BAY

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

Capt. C$ fishes from a US Coast Guard compliant 19' reconditioned Privateer center console, ideal for two anglers to fish the Bay's shallows. Powered by a 90-hp four-stroke Suzuki outboard from Danny's Marine with Garmin & ICOM electronics, we also run Mothership Yak trips. We fish from Native Watercraft kayaks, the most stable yaks on the water today.

 

 


 

Have more folks that want to fish? Capt. Chris$ has teamed up with Capt. Mark Galasso of Tuna the Tide charters, who has decades experience fishing the Bay. The Everglades 245 is ideal for 2-4 anglers, and Capt. Mark’s custom 35-foot Markley can accomadate up to six anglers. 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.
