Coast Guard Cautions Against Illegal Charter Boats

BALTIMORE - The Coast Guard cautions passengers, who pay to go fishing on the Chesapeake Bay, to avoid boats that do not have licensed captains or has not been inspected by the Coast Guard.The Coast Guard advises passengers to ask boat captains to show their original Coast Guard issued license. If the boat is carrying more than six passengers, it is required to be inspected by the Coast Guard and the Certificate of Inspection should be displayed in an area visible to passengers.

Don't make the mistake of going out with an unlicensed skipper. It may cost you or your family your lives.
