Maryland Rockfish Season

May 9-13, 2011

The trophy Chesapeake Bay striped bass season is still going strong at Sawyer Charters! The picture above shows what happened with the crew who went fishing with us on May 9. Needless to say, they had a great time.

The crew on the May 10 trip, pictured above, caught their limit of Maryland rockfish after putting in a full day. These were some really nice fish, some of which were around 40 inches in length.

May 11 was an action-packed day. After a slow start, the fish started to bite with a vengeance. They chipped away until they had their limit of Chesapeake Bay striped bass. This was a great crew.

On May 12, the group pictured above went fishing with us and enjoyed non-stop fishing action, as they caught their limit of Chesapeake Bay rockfish by around 11am. These guys have been fishing with us for a long time, and we're glad to have them.

The picture above shows what happened on Friday the 13th. Nothing bad at all happened, unless you're a rockfish, of course. The guys pictured above went fishing with us for the first time and limited out on rockfish in just a couple of hours of fishing. They had a great time and we were glad to have them.

We're still accepting bookings for June, July, and beyond for stripers, bluefish, croakers, and more! Call us at (410) 397-3743!

Chesapeake Bay Charter Fishing

May 5-8, 2011

From the pictures in this post, you can see that our Chesapeake Bay rockfish season is still going strong.

Over the past several days, our Maryland fishing charters have been marked by action-packed starts, followed by lulls, after which the fish bite again, usually leading to a full legal limit for our crew.

The fishing is still going well and hats off to our crews for the past week for their patronage, as well as patience, as that has proven to be a virtue. Still accepting bookings for the summer. Check out our website at for more information!

Maryland Charter Fishing

May 1-3, 2011

From looking at the three pictures in this post, you can see that we have had some success over the last three days when it comes to catching those highly-prized Chesapeake Bay rockfish.

These three crews all caught their legal limits of Maryland striped bass. These are all very nice fish, ranging between 32 and 42 inches in length.

The fishing has been really good since the season started on April 16 and we expect it to remain good for the foreseeable future. We're still accepting bookings for the upcoming summer months, so if you're looking to do some light tackle or bottom fishing, give us a call at (410) 397-3743!
