My name is Captain Joseph Cox. I am one of the youngest captains on the Chesapeake Bay. Being born and raised in Deale, MD, I have been working on the water since age 10. I have a tremendous amount of experience: I am on the water every day and can promise the best possible chance of a successful day of fishing for all customers. As owner and operator of Sporting Wood Charters, I look forward to fishing with you! Deale, Maryland is conveniently located about 25 minutes south of Annapolis, and a short 45-minute drive from Washington D.C. and Baltimore. Sporting Wood Charters offers full or half day Chesapeake Fishing Charters throughout the year. Depending on the season I offer a full range of fishing techniques including trolling, bottom fishing, chumming, and live bait. Sporting Wood Charters has an experienced Captain and Crew that provides full services and assistance. Included in your fare are all fishing licenses and top-of-the-line rods and reels, lures, and bait. Fishing cleaning is available at the dock. Sporting Wood Charters is a custom-built, superbly maintained, meticulously clean and safe fishing vessel for anglers of all ages. Powered by 450 HP Cummins Turbo diesel that reaches cruising speeds of 18 knots, she’s loaded with all the equipment and electronics we need to catch a bunch of fish! We have a spacious and comfortable salon available while we ride to the fishing grounds, and an enclosed head (toilet) available if needed. A multimedia system adds to the luxury of the fishing trip. Rates are set for 6 passengers, but we are licensed for up to 30 guests so large groups are more than welcome aboard. You should bring food, drinks, ice and cooler (don’t forget an empty cooler to leave in your car for your catch). We also recommend proper clothing, deck or tennis shoes, camera, sunscreen, hat, bug repellent, and sunglasses. You can also bring plastic Ziploc type bags for your filets. I am ready and excited to guide your group to a great Chesapeake Bay fishing trip. We fish from Mid-April through Mid-December.

Trophy season Half Day Trip (AM)
Our family of 19 people had an awesome time fishing on the Chesapeake Bay with Captain Dale and first mate Adam. They were professional, kind and efficient. We had a smooth ride to a nice spot. With their help, we were so happy to catch well over 20 huge cat fish and striped bass. The fish were cleaned and filleted on board and we were able to bring home a large cooler full of fish. We highly recommend fishing with Captain Dale and mate Adam for a memorable and productive trip!

Trophy season Half Day Trip (PM)
Great day on the bay, 2 families with kids10/12/14. Pretty much all first time fishing. Captain Dale did everything to find us some fish, and he succeeded! Him and Buddy set us up, showed us what to do and helped us catch 12 striped bass and a catfish. The kids had a blast and we all can’t wait to go again! We went home with about 12lbs of delicious fish. Thanks for a great day!
