What To Bring

The owner and captin of Old Bay is me, Captain Dave Wooldridge. I grew up on the Chesapeake Bay near Thomas Point on the South River down the road from downtown Annapolis.  These have been my home waters for 30 years. Yes, I have secret spots I have stored away for fishing and work as hard as I can to make your trip the best I can. I have a USCG captains license and am a member of the Maryland Charterbost Association, the Maryland Watermans Association, the Maryland Charter Industry Association, the Chesapeake Area Captains Association, and the Maritime Consortium. Whether you want to fish or booze cruise or have a burial at sea, I will serve your needs.

Charter fishing started back in 1972 when I worked on the "Sea Mist" for the famous "Captain Ed" out of Deale Md. I mated for Captain Ed for 5 years and learned much about fishing and life from him, God rest his soul. Years later I had to get an old wooden boat and named her "Julie Anne". Quickly I discovered the "joys" of owning 42 feet of 40 year old pine, known hereabouts as "Eastern Shore Mahogany". Finally I mad the move to steel, and the "Old Bay"
