Lucky Strike Charters

Captain Shawn Brumley and his team, Captain Tawn Tipsword and Captain Kenny MacEwan, have over 30 years of experience fishing the waters of the Chesapeake Bay. The crew specialize in catching Striped Bass, Black Drum, and Bluefish. Capt. Shawn enjoys taking big groups of people out, showing them the beautiful waters of Maryland, and, of course, putting them on fish! “Lucky Strike Charters” welcomes all angling enthusiasts to experience the thrill of fishing the Chesapeake Bay! Based in Deale, Maryland, you’ll launch out of Happy Harbor Marina with Captain Shawn Brumley. It’s the ideal opportunity to have a fun and action-packed experience with one of the best guides in the area! Hop aboard a 46’ Markley pilothouse boat, which can accommodate up to 17 anglers. This seaworthy fishing machine is rigged with all the top navigational electronics including GPS and Fishfinder. Make good use of the outriggers to cover a larger surface area and use the anchoring system to stay in place. What’s more this vessel is wheelchair accessible and is fitted with a toilet to make long trips more comfortable. The icebox keeps your catch fresh and the live well helps to entice the bite. You’ll target a variety of legendary Chesapeake fish in the bay’s inshore and nearshore waters. Use light tackle to hook Striped Bass and Bluefish and brush up on your bottom fishing skills to hook Croaker. Fall is the ideal time to go jigging for Seatrout and to target trophy Bass. Whether you’re a seasoned angler or a complete novice, Capt. Shawn is happy to accommodate your skill level. He’ll provide all the gear you need for a successful day and at the end of the trip, he’ll clean and fillet your catch. All you’ll want to bring are any drinks and snacks you’d like to enjoy. The crew works hard to make sure you have a good time and a 15–20% tip is customary. Experience one of the most prolific fisheries in the US with Lucky Strike Charters!
