We will be on the water for a long time. You should bring food to eat and also include your favorite snacks. Don't forget to bring some water.

We are not just fishing here at Councell Charters,
we also offer Goose and Duck hunts!

Come experience Eastern Shore Goose Hunting with Captain Brian and his crew for a memorable experience that will surely last a lifetime. We hunt in pits and blinds that are located over water or on one of our private farms. We supply the pit/blind, guide and decoys--you provide your own hunting equipment and licenses. A successful hunt is our main concern here at Councell Charters, so come on down and make a memory.
