Meet Captain Herman Haddaway and Screaming Eagle Charters

Prepare to set sail on an unforgettable adventure with the legendary Captain Herman Haddaway of Screaming Eagle Charters.

Captain Herman Haddaway, a native of Talbot County, embodies a deep-rooted passion for fishing. As a third-generation fisherman hailing from Maryland's Eastern Shore, Herman's upbringing revolved around the waters, where he honed his skills catching fish, crabs, and oysters. His profound connection with the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries is second nature, as he navigates these waters with an unparalleled familiarity and expertise, making every fishing expedition under his guidance an extraordinary and insightful experience.

Captain Herman exemplifies unparalleled fishing expertise, offering a diverse range of techniques and experiences for anglers seeking an unforgettable adventure. With a mastery of light tackle, trolling, and spinning methods, he tailors experiences for various seasons and target species. From spring and fall excursions to capturing Blues and Spanish Mackerel to utilizing live or cut bait from July to September, Herman ensures an action-packed and diverse fishing experience. Notably, he spearheads bowfishing for Bull Nose Stingrays in June, adding an exciting twist to the fishing roster. Moreover, he leads the charge during the Trophy Striper Season, where fishing for the 35" or bigger Striped Bass becomes an exhilarating endeavor, reeling in impressive catches averaging between 35" to 52" and weighing 30 to 50 lbs. From May to November, he adapts techniques, switching to light tackle using live bait for a dynamic and engaging fishing trip. Embracing new offerings, Herman introduces Catfish trips, presenting opportunities to tackle sizable Blue and Channel Catfish with finesse and expertise using light tackle methods.
