The Best Fishing Charters on the Chesapeake Bay

Great trip! Austin is great!

"My fiancé and I went out with Austin and his mate Alex. They were very engaging and enthusiastic. They allow you to be hands on and cater to what you want out of the trip. My fiancé was very appreciative of them helping her catch and handle the fish. There was no judgement but just a genuine desire to make everyone happy. Austin books up quick so be prepared to jump on any opening in his schedule. Ohh yea and we caught plenty of fish! haha I couldn't have asked for anything more from them. Thanks again."

The best Cobia charter. Period.

"I have been fishing all over the world but have had no luck catching Cobia. Austin put us on the cobia and we kept reeling them in until we just couldn't take it anymore! He has a great boat that is the perfect size for the four of us and he took the time to show us how to catch these elusive fish. I'll be back in the winter when the Striper come in for another round with Finao Sportfishing. Stop looking and book him early since he books early and fast."

5 stars no question about it

"These guys are the best cobia fishing charter on the east coast. They put us right on a bunch of huge fish, gave us anything we asked for, and gave us the time of our lives. No other charter will put you on the fish like they can and they deserve every little bit of what they charge for a fun day and more. 5 stars no question about it."

Annual Tradition

"Never met a better or harder working captain. Austin loves cobia fishing so much it seems like he never wants to call it a day. He puts us on big fish early and often, catching our limit and then some. Fishing on Finao is becoming an annual tradition!"

Can't wait to book with them again

"Went out yesterday with Captain Austin and mate Steve on a sight casting trip for Cobia. The morning was a little slow as the fish weren't interested in jigs or live eels. But the afternoon was a totally different story, I list track of the number of hook ups. A fair number of over 40 inch fish with the largest being 54". Can't offer enough praise for the professionalism and courtesy shown by Captain Austin and Steve. I would highly recommend the crew of Finao Sportfishing."
