Maryland Chesapeake Bay Fishing

June 24-27, 2011

We've seen some more great Chesapeake Bay fishing over the past few days. On Friday the 24th, we had a group of seven limit out on Chesapeake Bay stripers. It wasn't easy, as they had to catch their bait, but once they started fishing for the stripers, they started picking them up, one after the other. However, the fishing really dried up before they could finish their limit, so we had to pull our anchor and look around. Not long after that, we found birds working over numerous piles of breaking fish. Sure enough, those breaking fish were Maryland rockfish. We put over our trolling lines and started catching right away. Our crew was catching fish as fast as they could pull them. They had their limit in no time.

On Saturday, we headed down the bay to do some croaker fishing. The crew that we had with us managed to catch their legal limit of croakers. It was slow starting out, but once the sun went down, the fish started to bite like crazy. This is typical when croaker fishing. There were numerous occasions throughout the evening where everybody had a fish on at the same time.

This past Monday, the 27th, we were back to striper fishing with a great crew that came to see us for the first time. Hopefully, it won't be their last. They went fishing with us early in the morning. It took us a while to get the stripers to come to us, but once they did, we started picking away at them. Just before we finished out our legal limit of Chesapeake Bay striped bass, the fishing cut off due to a hard-running current. We pulled up our lines and went perch fishing for a while. Then, we went back to looking for the stripers, and they were ready for us. They would have eaten the bottom off of the boat if they could have. The crew pictured above caught their legal limit in very short order. It was a great time for everybody.
