Chesapeake Bay Light Tackle Charters

Chesapeake Bay Light tackle photo Light tackle fishing is both a favorite of Capt. Alan and one of the most rewarding ways guests aboard Catchin' Up II  can choose to fish! When an angler lands a fish whose weight and fighting ability far outclasses the tackle used to hook it there is a sense of accomplishment that is among the best felt by today's sport fishing enthusiast. Our guests can experience this finesse style of angling over the majority of the year due to our being able to target different species as the seasons change.

Finesse Angling!

We utilize quality light spinning gear for most of our light tackle adventures. Lures used include small lead head jigs with soft plastics, top water, suspended and diving hard baits (plugs), and small spoons. We also utilize baits at times such as peeler, green and fiddler crab, minnows, and some cut bait.

Chesapeake Bay York River Charters' goal is to provide our guests the the most personalized charter experience available on the Chesapeake Bay.
