Charter Fishing Gear You May Wish To Bring

A food, drink and fish cooler

Bring a cooler for food and drinks. Ask your Chesapeake Bay fishing boat Captain how large of a cooler you will need to carry your fish home in. You can ask these questions over the phone.

A sports bag to carry all your personal fishing gear

A sports bag is a good idea to bring for carrying your rain gear, hat, glasses etc and other personal items that you need on a saltwater charter fishing trip.

Bring chicken, subs, and sandwiches or whatever you want to eat. Bring your drinks - Ask the Captain if he allows beer.

Bring all your food and drinks. If you want to bring beer you should clear it with the charter boat Captain first.

Foul weather gear - Optional

If you will be fishing in foul or rainy weather then you may want to bring some gear to keep you dry. Not as important on boats with covers. The Mary Ellen has shelter.

Bring polarized sun glasses to block the suns glare

Bring sun glasses. Preferrably polarized fishing glasses to lessen the sun's glare that reflects up off the water.

A camera or video camera for pictures

Bring a camera or video camera to take snapshots of those big fish you catch or video of the beautiful Chesapeake Bay and Chesapeake Bay sights.

Fishing hats to block sun burn

A hat or ball cap is a good idea, especially for you guys that are getting a bit thin on top. Protect your head from the sun's burning rays.

If you get seasick then motion sickness pills would be a very good idea

If you get sea sick or aren't sure if you get sea sick then it is a very wise idea to take your Dramamine before you leave the dock. Nothing can ruin a fishing trip worse than a guy named "RALPH".

Sun screen so you won't burn

Even the Maryland Chesapeake Bay and Chesapeake Bay region can get very hot during the summer. Make sure you bring sunscreen, especially if you easily burn. If you are burnt up you can't enjoy your Chesapeake Bay charter fishing trip.

Bring cash to tip the boat's mate - TIP HIM WELL!

You probably already paid for the trip but you should make sure you have some cash in pocket so you can tip the First Mate. If the boat is full of novice anglers a mates job can be doubly hard. Being Mate on a charter boat is not easy work and these guys deserve every dime they get. Tip them well!
