The Charter boat "My Desire" is a 32' solid fiberglass Manning. The boat is diesel powered with brand new electronics. The boat is USCG approved for up to 6 passangers. 

"My Desire" will be available for fishing charters on the Chesapeake Bay, docked in Saint Michaels, MD for the 2020 season.
 Durning the summer and fall the boat will be docked at my home on the Choptank River.

Capt. Bill Kneessi welcomes the entire family on all of our Chesapeake Bay fishing & Crabbing 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 of Fishing or Crabbing on the Chesapeake Bay.

Captain Bill Kneessi
has 40 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 possible. I encourage angler participation and will do all that is necessary to make your experience something that you will enjoy and remember.
