Chesapeake Bay Striper Fishing

June 19, 2010

We left Hoopers Island early this afternoon on one of our Maryland fishing charters, going after those prized Chesapeake Bay rockfish. We started out fishing with live bait, but this didn't work so well due to a hard-running current against a hard wind out of the south, making the boat cut and shear, and causing one tangle after another. After trying this for about an hour, we broke out the trolling gear. Over the next few hours, we picked away until our group of nine ended up with 18 beautiful Chesapeake Bay stripers, making a full legal limit! These were some pretty fish, ranging between 18 and 28 inches in length. We got in just past sundown, so no picture was taken.
