The Town of Chesapeake Beach invites you to spend a summer evening cruising aboard “Miss Lizzy, docked at Rod 'N' Reel Marina. Captain Shawn Gibson brought “Miss Lizzy” to Chesapeake Beach last summer and is looking forward to a spectacular 2016 fishing and cruising season. Captain Shawn is a third generation charter captain from Chesapeake Beach. He worked aboard his Grandfather's charter boat "WHY NOT" as a boy and spent his summers off from college, mating and running Night fishing trips when his "Pop" needed a break. "Miss Lizzy" is named after Shawn's Great Grandmother, who spent many years fishing from the very same docks where Miss Lizzy is located. Miss Lizzy is sixty-five feet long and carries 49 passengers.
