Captain Larry is passionate about light tackle fishing on the Chesapeake Bay. He is a United States Coast Guard licensed OUPV Captain and licensed Maryland Fishing Guide, who has spent a lifetime fishing the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries. A native Marylander, Captain Larry grew up in the Annapolis area and has been fishing the bay since his early childhood. Larry believes in fishing hard and having a good time while doing it. There's always plenty of laughter onboard, even on the tough days when it's a grind to find the fish. Captain Larry values the friendships and relationships that he has established on the water just as much as the fish that have been caught there.
Our goal is to to deliver quality guide services on the Chesapeake Bay. All trips are tailored towards the individual interests and goals for each group of anglers. Captain Larry will leverage his experience and knowledge, as well as the collective knowledge of his network of fellow anglers, to put clients on the fish year round. He is dedicated to making sure that your experience on the water is as enjoyable, satisfying and memorable as it can be.
Built from a tradition of quality, strength, and seaworthiness, our Parker 2300 SE is a solid performer on the often-turbulent waters of the Chesapeake Bay. Our Parker is equipped with all required U.S. Coast Guard safety equipment, including a Coast Guard-approved life jacket for each angler. Our vessel is outfitted with state of the art communications, navigation, and sonar equipment. When it comes to finding the fish, finding our way around, or handling emergencies, our vessel is ready to meet the many challenges of the Chesapeake Bay.
We typically focus on the Middle Chesapeake and Tangier Sound, but as a mobile operation we can travel from the Upper Bay to Virginia waters when seasonal fish migration patterns dictate. Commonly used launching points include: Kent Narrows, Sandy Point, Chesapeake Beach, Bellevue Landing, Solomons Island, Point Lookout, Nanticoke Harbor, and Crisfield. Check with the captain to find out which launching point will work best for your trip based on the time of year and your angling goals.
At Chasing Light Charters, we believe in putting the safety of our clients first. We do not believe in taking any unnecessary or unreasonable risks for the sake of catching fish. Captain Larry is devoted and committed to operating within the safe limits of his vessel and his seamanship. At Chasing Light Charters we pride ourselves on approaching each trip with a "Safety First" attitude.
