Captain Herman Haddaway, born and raised in Talbot County, epitomizes a profound love for fishing. Growing up on Maryland's Eastern Shore as a third-generation fisherman, Herman's formative years were immersed in the waters, refining his abilities in catching fish, crabs, and oysters. His innate bond with the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries is ingrained, navigating these waters with unmatched familiarity and skill, ensuring each fishing adventure under his leadership is exceptional and enlightening.

Captain Herman showcases unparalleled fishing expertise, curating a diverse array of techniques and experiences tailored for anglers in search of unforgettable adventures. From mastering light tackle, trolling, and spinning methods to customizing trips based on seasons and target species, he ensures each excursion is uniquely thrilling. Whether it's spring and fall outings targeting Blues and Spanish Mackerel or utilizing live or cut bait for summer catches from July to September, Herman guarantees action-packed diversity throughout the year.

Distinguished for spearheading bowfishing expeditions for Bull Nose Stingrays in June and leading the charge during Trophy Striper Season, where the pursuit of 35" or larger Striped Bass promises exhilarating endeavors, Herman consistently delivers impressive catches averaging between 35" to 52" and weighing 30 to 50 lbs. From May to November, he seamlessly adapts techniques, transitioning to light tackle with live bait for dynamic and engaging fishing experiences.
