The Fishing Detective Guide Agency

The Fishing Detective Guide Agency is located in Marbury and offers to show you a memorable time in these waters.

Capt. Kenneth will do his best to make sure you have a fun day full of fishing. This involves 4-hour trips, mainly fishing for Snakehead and Bass, depending on the season and conditions on the day. Snakehead Trips are very popular on the Potomac and the Potomac is the best Northern Snakehead fishery in the world.

The Potomac trips will have varying start times as well as launch locations. It is necessary to communicate with the captain so that these times/locations can be discussed.

Your fishing adventure starts on a 21’ Ranger boat that can safely take up to 2 anglers. All rods, reels and terminal tackle are included in the price so you can focus on what really matters, fishing. The Fishing Detective is partnered with Simms, Yeti, Quantum, Seaguar, Kuiu, Fishing Complete Inc, TH Marine, Vortex Optics, Woo Tungsten, Ardent Outdoors, Bigmouth Lures.

Your trip will include all the necessary fishing licenses for the day. The Fishing Detective Guide Agency offers only catch and release trips, so any fish you catch will be returned to the water. The captain can’t guarantee fish but he can guarantee that he will work as hard as possible. Capt. Kenneth fishes over 160 days a year to do his best to make memories with his guests. You’ll be fishing with artificial lures so a big part of success will be down to your skill. Whatever the skill level, Capt. Kenneth believes that a guest will walk away knowing more about fishing than when he arrived.

Book your trip now and hit the water with The Fishing Detective Guide Agency.
