Fishing Report


Greetings everyone. Won't be long now....with any luck my season here in the Tangier Sound will kick off as it usually does sometime in May when the water warms and fish start moving into the shallows.

Just for those that may still inquire, I no longer guide the Susquehanna Flats catch & release season that starts March until early May nor will I be running any early season trips at the CBBT in VA.  Sorry, I stopped doing alternate destination trips a few years ago but still get a high number of inquiries for those areas, I will  however be happy to refer anyone who inquires.

Feel free to call/email now for scheduling spring trips beginning mid May.


Tight lines...

Capt. Matt

I have been fishing with Capt. Matt for over six years now and keeping coming back for more. I have fished with him in his home waters of Crisfield, MD, to the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel area for Stripers to Harkers Island, NC to chase Albies. Capt. Matt is one of the best guides I have ever fished with; he works hard and you catch fish, but as importantly Capt Matt teaches you about the places you are fishing and provides good conversation and company. I would recommend him in a heartbeat to anyone who is a light tackle or fly angler enthusiast and wants to have a great day on the water!

Fishing with Captain Matt Tawes has become one of my most eagerly anticipated annual Chesapeake Bay experiences.  Capt Matt always gets me to fish, shows me new hot spots, and generously shares his knowledge of how and where to fish the Bay around Crisfield.  On my last trip with him, we launched in the rain and wind, which appeared to promise a wipe out day.  But based on the weather and tides, Capt Matt put together a plan that kept us protected from the brutal conditions out in Tangier Sound and introduced us to secluded guts and channels that produced almost nonstop striper action on flyrods.  It was a very wet but wildly exciting and satisfying day.  And Capt Matt did this all with his customary relaxed, easygoing, but focused and attentive manner, making sure he gave us the best day of fishing he could provide.
