Fishing and Hunting

St. Mary’s County has always been a favorite place to fish and for good reason!  This peninsula is bounded by the Patuxent and Potomac Rivers and the Chesapeake Bay so  we’ve got wide open water, fast flowing rivers, serene tidal creeks and even a fine freshwater trophy bass lake!  If you’re a serious fisherman or you just casting about for some fun, we can deliver.   Our state parks and wildlife management areas provide great  hunting terrains.

Charter Fishing

Step aboard with one of our experienced captains and you are right where the action is –where the Potomac and the Chesapeake meet. Our captains know the water—many have been fishing it all their lives. Charter fishing is fantastic fun for friends and groups. Come fish some of the richest water around.
