John Hostalka

Glen Arm Maryland

I’m a versatile kayak angler known among my friends as “Fishstalka.” My passion lies in pursuing a wide range of fish species, from Redfish in the salt marshes to snakehead amidst the lily pads, and even King Mackerel in offshore waters. While I primarily fish extensively in the Chesapeake Bay region, I’ve also embarked on kayak fishing adventures along the entire Eastern Seaboard.

My affinity for water runs deep, stemming from my earliest days. I was practically born into it, growing up in the midst of ponds, creeks, rivers, and reservoirs in upstate South Carolina. Over the years, I’ve developed a strong connection with the unique waterways of the Chesapeake Bay region, which I now proudly call my home.
