The Annapolis Chapter of the MSSA

    The MSSA is working to provide a unified voice to preserve and protect the rights, traditions and the future of recreational saltwater fishing in Maryland. If you are a Saltwater Fisherman, then you should be a Member of the MSSA. And if you live, work or fish in the greater Annapolis Area, we invite you to join the Annapolis Chapter.
    The Annapolis Chapter is one of the largest and most active chapters in the MSSA. Our Members share a passion for Saltwater Fishing in both the Chesapeake Bay and the Bluewater found off the Delmarva Coast. In addition to fun and informative meetings, our members organize and participate in numerous tournaments and events during the year.

    Please join us to expand your knowledge of Bay & Offshore Fishing and to extend your Fishing Buddy Network to know where and how the big fish are being caught.

Welcome Aboard!
