Annapolis Chapter Events

Probably the biggest event we have annually is the Saltwater Fishing Expo!

    Held in February every year, the Chapter puts on one heck of a show. Top notch vendors and speakers come together at a great facility and provide one of the best, if not the best, Fishing Extravaganza !! The 2017 SALTWATER FISHING EXPO will be held Saturday, February 25th 2017. Mark this date in your Personal Calendar for one of the most popular Winter Fishing Shows in the Area. We have finalized another great line up of Seminars presented by local fishing experts. We expect most of our quality Tackle Vendors and Charter Captains/Guides to join us once again at the Annapolis Elks Lodge.

Mark your calendars and don't miss this great event.  Read More

The Annapolis Chapter gives back to our defenders of freedom with our annual Rock On Warriors event.

    Each year we put together an event to honor our military members by taking them out on the Bay and sharing our passion for fishing. After a day of chasing Stripers around the Bay, we hold a banquet to celebrate and thank our Veterans. Read More


Ocean City Sea Bass Trip

    Sponsored by the chapter, this trip is one of the best bangs for the buck you could participate in. Held each year in mid-May to coincide with the Sea Bass opening, the chapter books a trip with the Captain Monty of the Morningstar and leaves out of the O.C. Marina. Don't miss this one! More info available as we get closer to the 2017 trip.
