Default Baltimore Maryland Area

Do any of you guy keep your boats docked up in the Baltimore area or Annapolis? I moving down and am having a tough time finding a descent marina for my 21 cc.

Annapolis area. Fishing the Bridge area is great as well as cruising the Annapolis area. You can even take day cruises to St. Michaels, chestertown, or Balt. Can be crowded though.

There is a Marina called L J Marina by Cantlers Riverside Inn in Annapolis. I kept my boat there for several years. It is smaller, well kept, very protected and I never had any problems there. Not the "Yacht-club" atmosphere but it does have a restaurant next door. Great place to get bait too as the owner is a local waterman too. Here is his number 410.757.4166

I keep our boat ACROSS from Annapolis, but I assume you are looking for something on the West side of the bay/bridge. Have you tried http://marinas.com, you can enter a zip code and give it a search radius, or use the map. Might help you narrow down your options.

They have wet slips and boatels at Podickory Pt Marina. It is the first marina north of the Bay Bridge on the west shore. Great location. My engines are barely warm and I'm on fish. It has a pool and beach and it well managed. Give Charlie (the manager) a call at 410-757 8000. Tell him Dennis in B4 asked you to call.

What are you looking for in a marina ... there are a ton of them in that area. Looking to dry stack or wet slip?

We're just inside the South River at Turkey Point Marina. South River Marina is right across the creek. There are two others a bit further up river - Oak Grove and Liberty. All of these have wet slips and lifts. All but Turkey Point have Rack storage also.

If you want to be north of the bridge, check out Fairwinds Marina on the Magothy.

Don't forget Fairwinds on the Magothy. Right at the mouth of the river with good fishing nearby. It's between Patapsco and Severn.

Highly recommend staying as far away from Annapolis and the area surrounding it as possible. The summer season is particularly miserable. Head further south like Shady Side or Deale, or north to Pasadena or Middle River. While none of those options will offer the solitude, peace and tranquility of the Eastern Shore they'll make boating far more enjoyable.

hey PGM, where are you going to be living? fishing is generally better the further south you can get. so if a drive down to the south/west/rhode rivers (in the deale/shady side areas) won't be too far that might present better and likely cheaper options than the balt/annapolis areas.

I can name a few places on the patapsco, what are you looking for in a marina. Atlantic marina resort has, swimming pool, beach area, floating slips and hi and dry. I am thinking of moving my boat there. Pinhurst landing marina is where I keep my boat now, no amenties, but cheap and private.

Default Keep In water or on trailer?

Number of options depending on how you want to keep it. Alot of sublet slip deals recently due to economy, check paper and craigs list for them. How much are you looking to spend and how often do you expect to use it?

Sorry for getting back to everyone so late, thank you very much for all the feed back. I decided to keep my boat dry racked at Tidewater Marine right off of Key Highway. It's very convenient for me since I live in Federal Hill. Now all I have to do is learn the waters and put some fish in the boat! I anyone boats or fishes in the are I'd love to meet up and learn a thing or two.

Pursuit,

I almost went with Henderson's except Tidewater was closer and had the dry racks. I heard a bit farther south by the bay bridge the Striper fishing is excellent! How is it around here?

Pat.

Pat,
For the Spring run of big fish you need to be in the main stem of the bay and usually from the mouth of the Magothy river area south....on the western side and Rock Hall area south on the eastern side......later in the year, light tackle can be found off of Curtis creek and just west of the Key Bridge area.....sometime around Ft. McHenry. The fall bring great light tackle fishing in a lot of areas that you can access easily from the harbor/Patapsco.
