Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report

June 17-18, 2011

It was another fantastic weekend of Chesapeake Bay fishing aboard the Sawyer! The two crews pictured below both caught their legal limits of Chesapeake Bay striped bass, on a weekend where you couldn't have asked the weather to be any better.

The crew pictured above caught their legal limit of stripers with live bait. After they caught their bait, they went hunting for rockfish. They dropped their lines upon seeing a few on the meter. The fish started to bite right away and the action was non-stop until they caught their limit. Toward the end, you couldn't keep the fish off!

The next day, the crew pictured above also caught their limit of Maryland rockfish, but they really had to work for it. When we got out into the Bay, there was no current, and the fish wouldn't bite. While we waited things out, we did some perch fishing, and then we started to head down the Bay. As we were working our way down, we started seeing rockfish breaking the surface all over the place. Upon seeing this, we broke out our trolling gear and started putting out lines. Within an hour, we went from zero to a full limit of stripers. When the fish bite, the action is just non-stop!

We still have plenty of availabilities this summer if you want to reserve your very own Maryland charter fishing experience. Give us a call at (410) 397-3743 or visit our website at!
