Captain Richie Gaines has been guiding professionally in the Chesapeake Bay region for over thirty years. He has earned a reputation as one of the top light tackle and fly fishing guides on the Chesapeake. A good guide should be part fish, a good teacher & coach, with a bit of stand-up comic thrown in. Catching fish is certainly the primary goal, but learning and improving techniques and tactics while having fun is an added bonus when you fish with Capt. Richie. He believes that knowledge has no value unless it is shared.

As a “guerilla” guide, he follows the best fishing opportunities up and down the Chesapeake throughout the year. From shallow water fishing on the Susquehanna Flats in the spring to speckled trout on the Lower Bay in the summer months to the early winter bite at the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel where the Bay meets the Ocean, He has thethe knowledge, equipment, and gear to guide you to where the fish are.
