Booking and Charter Info

  • The FIN FINDER II normally departs from Harbor Island Marina in Solomons, MD (directions are located in the Directions Link on the right).  However, if the fishing is significantly better well to the North, we will be fishing out of Happy Harbor in Deale, MD or if the fishing is significantly better to the South, we will be fishing out of Point Lookout Marina in Ridge, MD.  And for about 4 weeks late summer, the FIN FINDER II will be fishing for Cobia out of Lynhaven Inlet in Virginia Beach, VA.
  • Departure time for the FIN FINDER II will vary depending upon the fishing season.  For most of our morning charters, we normally like to leave the dock at 6 AM.
  • Afternoon departure times will vary from 12 noon to 3 PM according to the season and how the bite is at the time of the scheduled charter.
  • We provide all rods and reels, all bait, all tackle and a large fish box w/ICE to keep your catch cool.  No fishing License is required and you are always welcome to bring your own lucky rod and reel.
  • A $300 deposit per trip is required within ten days of booking your charter (please see Contact Information link for mailing address).  Credit Cards are accepted over the phone but check or money order is the preferred method for payment of deposits.
  • Deposits are non-refundable unless at least 30 days of notice are given before the booked date, or if the trip is cancelled by the Captain due to inclement weather.
  • It is also very important to be sure to collect from all of your crew so you don’t get stuck paying the entire bill or end up calling everybody you know the night before the trip, trying to find replacements for your buddies who backed out at the last minute.
  • Call or e mail as early as possible to ensure you can get a prime date, as the prime date when the fishing is red hot book up quickly.
  • The first mate works very hard before, during and after charter trips to ensure you have a successful and fun filled day on the Chesapeake Bay.  A tip of around 20% is customary and expected.
  • Fish Cleaning is available at a nominal charge.
  • For any and all additional questions or concerns, please feel free to call Capt. Lee or shoot him an e-mail……..
