If you plan to visit Tilghman Island’s Harrison family for a day of fishing, we recommend taking a good look at what they call the “Buddy Plan,” a total Eastern Shore package of fishing, dining and resting.

You’ll have a room in the Harrison House, eat a sumptuous dinner, get a good night’s sleep and then have a hearty breakfast, followed by an eight-hour fishing trip. While the Harrison crew cleans your catch, you can take a nap or swim in the pool ? all for one price.

Of course, you also can just pay for the fishing, so on the morning of your outing you drive across the Bay Bridge and before you get into Easton turn right at the St. Michaels and Tilghman Island sign, follow it to the Harrison’s Chesapeake House complex and just go fishing. Either way, you’ll have a fine time hooking rockfish, blues, black drum, croakers, Spanish mackerel or spot. Fish species availability depends on the time of year.

Check out the Harrison family operation that has been in business since 1875. Call 410/886-2121, e-mail cheshse@goeaston.net or check the Web, chesapeakehouse.com.
