Angler's Connection Guide Service is proud to offer a broad range of quality light tackle and fly fishing trips throughout the Chesapeake Bay region. The Chesapeake is an angler’s paradise and the "Striped Bass Capital of the World." 80% of the Atlantic Coast striped bass population spawns in the Chesapeake and 50% of those fish spawn in the Upper Bay or one of its tributaries. Angler's Connection offers great fishing opportunities for striped bass in a variety of ways and places. Big fish in shallow water, breaking fish on the surface, jigging deep offshore bottom structure, casting to a serene shoreline, and working top-water lures over a tide rip are possible on the Bay, sometimes all in one outing! Great fishing, good humor, and a knowledgeable guide are what you get with Angler's Connection Guide Service.

Owner Capt. Richie Gaines is a "guerilla" guide and follows the best fishing opportunities up and down the Chesapeake throughout the year. From the shallow water fishing on the Susquehanna Flats in the spring to the awesome late fall bite at the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel where the Bay meets the Ocean, he has the experience, top quality equipment, and expertise to find and put you on the fish.

23' Parker Center Console
The boat is a 23-foot Parker Special Edition center console specifically rigged for light tackle and fly angling and it’s the perfect rig for our style of fishing. The shallow draft allows us to get into the skinny water on the Susquehanna Flats and the sharp entry and big “ Carolina” flare on the bow makes for a comfortable and dry ride in the big water. The boat is equipped with a Yamaha four stroke outboard, top quality Lowrance electronics, a full compliment of St. Croix medium action spinning rods rigged with Okuma Epixor reels, and 7 and 9 weight fly rods. Whether its soft plastics, topwater lures, metal jigging spoons, or specialized flies, we also carry a full array of the best quality lures and flies aboard at all times. These are all offered for your use at no charge.
