Charter Fishing - Helpful Hints
General Tips and Policies
For more information, contact the Maryland Department of Natural Resources at 877-620-8367.
  • Catch - It is generally the policy that the catch belongs to the charter party. Please respect our natural resources and take only the amount of fish you will use.
  • Drugs and Contraband - No illegal drugs or contraband are allowed on the premises, including the marina. If the captain suspects a party possesses any controlled substance, the captain will immediately return to the marina or dock and the party will forfeit all moneys due for the trip.
  • Fish Cleaning - Many captains have available fish cleaning stations or mates to clean your catch for you. You should decide how you want your catch divided and packaged. Price for fish cleaning is not included in the cost of the trip.
  • Tipping - The mate works for tips. While at your discretion, the average tip for a mate is between 10 and 15 percent of the cost of the trip.
  • Weather Policy - The captain will always make the final determination whether a boat will sail. Late departures or early returns may also be necessary. Please ask your captain when scheduling your trip about policies relating to the forfeiture of your deposit.
  • Weigh-In - The charter dock is the official Maryland weigh-in station. Please inform the captain if you want to weigh in for a state of Maryland citation.
  • What to Bring - For a truly enjoyable adventure, you should bring suitable clothes, soft-sole shoes, food / beverage, sunscreen, camera and a cooler to take your fish home. All fishing equipment and safety devices are furnished by the captain. You do not need a fishing license while sport fishing on a charter boat with a licensed captain.
