Overview

Jeff & Karen’s goal with Pitboss Fishing is to provide you with a great and safe day on the water as well as the best fishing charter experience in Ocean City, Maryland. All of our trips are “private party” trips which means we don’t pair you up with other groups just to fill up the boat. We cater each trip to you and what you’d enjoy doing, whether a first timer or a seasoned veteran. We encourage families, especially those with younger children to come fish and boat with us enjoying the best Ocean City and Worcester County Maryland has to offer! Jeff is a local resident here who full-time Captains spending 300+ days a year on the water either guiding fishing trips or with his Sea Duck Hunts at Pitboss Waterfowl. The Bad Influence’s Captain holds a current USCG Master licensed, Towing endorsement, Maryland Fishing Guide Licensed, Maryland Commercial Fishing Licensed & Maryland Master Waterfowl Guide. And and and… is full of all kinds of “useless knowledge” of the area that hopefully will make your trip and stay in Ocean City & Worecster County Maryland more enjoyable! All License, Rods &Reels, Tackle, Bait, Life Jackets, Bottled Water & Soda are provided on the Bad Influence and always available for short notice private charters by the hour, half-day or full-day charters. We really enjoy taking Families with younger first time anglers and getting them on the BITE!!!
