Meet Your Captain!

Josh Saunders

Owner and operator of Peake Tide fishing, and USCG Master licensed Captain, Josh Saunders grew up fishing in bodies of water large and small across several states. He soon developed a passion for saltwater fishing in his home waters of the Chesapeake Bay and her tributaries. This passion led him to seek out each nook and cranny in and around the Bay, always searching for the area’s best fishing.

Always eager for more, Josh has fished from the rushing trout streams of Montana to North Carolina’s bountiful sounds, from the tidal flats and mangroves of Florida to the crystal clear waters of the Bahamas, always expanding his fishing knowledge and experience, and he draws on this experience to ensure that you have the trip of a lifetime.

Having learned the art of tying flies at a young age, Josh ties flies, and has worked, for some of the area’s best known tackle shops. He also ties flies for world class professionals as well as hobbyist fishermen, applying the same level of care and attention to detail for each and every customer. He is always ready to tie custom flies and jigs for customers fishing in some of the world’s fabled fishing spots or those fishing in their backyard ponds.

Whether fishing, guiding, tying or teaching, Captain Josh is continually honing his skills, thus his ability to provide you with a quality experience. Whether you want to touch up your casting skills with fly casting instruction on the water, or to brush up on some of the best light tackle techniques for our area, Captain Josh is ready to help. Our goal is for you to have a safe, enjoyable and memorable day on the water and the Captain will provide his detailed knowledge of our local fisheries to put you on the fish!
