Try one of our shorter fishing trips.

Spending twelve hours on a fishing boat isn’t for everyone. Some get a little hesitant when they think of being sixty mile offshore in several hundred or even thousand feet of water. Fortunately, Ocean City offers what can be outstanding fishing action well with a short one hour boat of Fin Chaser Sportfishing Charters. These areas known as hills or lumps are a gathering point for bait as well as several species of predator fish like king and spanish mackerel, bluefish, the hard pulling false albacore. Occasionally, and I must stress occasionally, these trips produce species that we normally encounter much farther off the beach like mahi, tuna and wahoo.

These trips are perfect for families with Jr anglers or those with limited time/budget but who still want trolling action and the chance at something big. On the Fin Chaser we can combine these trips with some bottom fishing or even some shark fishing for the ultimate experience. Not only will you have a great time catching fish, you’ll see things that you’d never see from land. Whales, sea turtles, mola-mola (aka ocean sunfish) and playful dolphin right next to the boat.

If you’d like to find out more about nearshore trolling on board the Fin Chaser, call now or book your trip here.
