The charter Fishing boat "My Desire" is a 38' Cabo Express, powered by 435hp Cat Diesels. The Cabo is considered by most people to be one of the best built production boat in the world.   This boat is fully equipped for sportfishing with state of the art electronics. The boat is USCG approved to carry up to six anglers. We also provide bait, tackle and ice for the fish.

The Charter Crabbing boat "My Desire" is a 32' solid fiberglass Manning. The boat is diesel powered with brand new electronics installed in 2015. The boat is USCG approved for up to 6 passangers. See Crabbing page for additional information. 

"My Desire" will be available for fishing charters on the Chesapeake Bay, docked at Knapps Narrows Marina on Tilghman Island for the entire 2016 season.

Capt. Bill Kneessi welcomes the entire family on all of our Chesapeake Bay fishing trips. The kids will love our  Spot, Hardhead  and Rockfishing trips. If you plan to visit Maryland's Eastern Shore, we are just a short driving distance from Easton, Tilghman Island, St. Michaels and Oxford.  Join us for a fun day on the Chesapeake Bay.

Captain Bill Kneessi
has over 35 years experience operating a charter boat on the Chesapeake Bay,  Hatteras, N.C. and Ocean City, Md.  I start every season with new ideas, enthusiasm, and a great attitude. It is "My Desire" to give you the most exciting day of fishing & Crabbing possible. I encourage angler participation and will do all that is necessary to make your experience something that you will enjoy and remember.
