Recommendation for fishing charter?

My husband is turning 40 and I'd like to book a full or half day fishing charter boat out of Annapolis with a few of his buddies. Any good recommendations for companies to use?

I think you will likely find limited options and relatively poor fishing out of Annapolis. A better location would be either Deale (30 min south of Annapolis) or Solomon's Island.(1 hr 15 min south of Annapolis). We have been going charter fishing with Capt. Jamey on the Kelly D ( http://www.kellydsportfishing.com/ ) for over 20 years and he has a good reputation for finding the fish. He is located out of Solomon's Island. This website http://www.dealecharterboats.com/index.php has a list of boats out of Deale, but I don't have any info on them. I believe most of these trips don't provide food and drink, we typically bring a good amount of food, but you can easily get by with a cooler of beer and sandwiches.

You really don't see fishing charters running out of Annapolis...there may be some, but not many. Definitely much bigger the further down the Bay you go. I've seen a couple running out of Galesville on the West River (about 20 minutes south of Annapolis) where I do most of my sailing. As posted above, Deale and Solomons are where the heart of charter fishing lives.
