Fishing, cruising and dinner parties are sort of things one could always enjoy. And if this is what you’re looking after, a good captain to lead you is always the first thing to search out. Find a captain who had at least 10 to 20 years of experience in fishing. He must be someone who knows how to catch everything that swims in the Bay. Whether trolling or chumming, jigging or bottom fishing, the captain you can find should be someone who can consistently find the fish. Also, make sure that before getting into your fishing and cruising adventure that you know the perfect destination that you prefer.
With all this, Bad Habit Charters can be your top choice. The boat, Bad Habit, is 2002 42′ by 13′ 6″ fiberglass Evans Bay-built charter boat. She’s powered by a 610 hp MAN Diesel, allowing her to cruise at 20 kts. but capable of 28 kts. (Less time running to find fish means more time catching). Equipped with an enclosed, heated cabin, large head, state-of-the-art Radar, Color Fishfinder, GPS with Chart Plotter, VHF, CB, AM-FM Stereo and all the fishing tackle you’ll need, the Bad Habit is a fish-catching machine. Her carrying capacity is 28 passengers, although we recommend groups of 12-15 for fishing.
The Captain: Has been fishing on the Chesapeake Bay all his born life. There are pictures of him as a toddler holding large bluefish that touch the floor from back in the 70’s. He has fished through the 80’s and the Rockfish moratorium and through the 90’s and 2000’s running boats and then getting his own. He has owned several charter boats since 2006, but most recently acquired the Bad Habit in March of 2012. Captain Frank has a life-long passion for fishing, meeting people and showing them a good time on the Chesapeake Bay. Captain Frank is also a 25 plus year veteran of the U.S. Coast Guard, so rest assured that you’ll be safe when underway with him at the helm.
