Chesapeake Bay Striped Bass Fishing

July 22-26, 2011

The last several days featured more of the same Chesapeake Bay fishing action aboard the Sawyer, action that culminates in a full legal limit of Maryland rockfish.

We are still catching these stripers using live spot fish for bait, in a process that is more popularly known as live-lining. This can be the most challenging, yet most exciting way of fishing for striped bass.

These fish generally range anywhere from 18 to 28 inches, with some of them more than 30 inches in length, making for great action on a spinning reel!

We expect this fishing to remain good in the days to come. If you would like to reserve a date, give us a call at (410) 397-3743.

Maryland Charter Fishing Report

July 13-17, 2011

This past week featured yet more excitement on the Chesapeake Bay, marked by nice weather, and excellent Maryland striper fishing.

Right now, our Chesapeake Bay fishing charters feature bottom fishing for spot fish that are used for live bait, followed by free-spooling those fish for striped bass. From the pictures in this post, you can see that we've been rather successful, catching our legal limits most of the time. Keep in mind that not everyone in the pictures wanted to hold up two fish :).

We expect the Maryland striper fishing action to remain good in the foreseeable future. We have plenty of open dates if you want to reserve your very own fishing charter.

Chesapeake Bay Fishing Charters

July 5-9, 2011

The fishing for Chesapeake Bay striped bass right now is white hot! Over the last few days, we've been catching our legal limit of Maryland rockfish everyday in less than an hour.

We've been catching our fish with live spot fish for bait, a technique that is more popularly known as live-lining. If you put that spot on a treble hook and toss it out, the stripers just can't resist it. The fish are all of a very healthy grade, ranging between 20 and 32 inches in length.

We have plenty of available dates for Chesapeake Bay fishing charters, if you would like to try your hand at this type of fishing. We expect this fishing to remain very good for the foreseeable future. Give us a call at (410) 397-3743 or visit our website at!

Chesapeake Bay Charter Fishing

July 1, 2011

Today was another fabulous day of fishing on the Chesapeake Bay. The guys in the above picture have been out with us on Chesapeake Bay fishing charters for years, and they always seem to do really well. Today was no exception. These guys caught their fish today by using live spot for bait, a technique that is also known as live-lining. After spending a couple of hours fishing for bait, we went on out to where we've been catching our fish, and the stripers were waiting for us. Within an hour of dropping the anchor, these guys caught their legal limit of Maryland Chesapeake Bay rockfish!

By looking closely at the above picture, it may appear that they came up short of their limit, but some of them only wanted to hold up one fish. Oh, well.
