Welcome to Southern Tide Guide Service. We are a full service charter fishing operation catering to anglers of all ages and skill levels. Our vessel, the Three Sons is a spacious thirty nine foot Tiffany Yacht, capable of getting you to the fishing grounds fast, comfortably and safely. We fish the Virginia and Maryland portions of the Chesapeake Bay, as well as the Potomac and Rappahannock Rivers. November, December, April and May are great months to catch trophy stripers, while the summer months provide excellent opportunities to catch bluefish, spanish mackerel, red drum and croaker.


No matter what time of year that you choose to fish with us, you will be greeted by a friendly and knowledgeable crew that will work to ensure that you have an enjoyable day out on the water. With a lifetime of experience, Captain Joe Biddlecomb will work hard to ensure that you are in an atmosphere where you are able to relax and enjoy yourself.


“Fish," he said, "I love you and respect you very much. But I will kill you dead before this day ends.”

― Ernest Hemingway, The Old Man and the Sea

In addition to fishing trips, we are able to arrange for custom evening river cruises, or even archery fishing trips for cow nosed rays. Whatever you hope to accomplish during your day on the water, we will strive to meet and exceed your expectations.
