Booking the Rest of Our Summer Dates—63 & 2 Limit-Out Record So Far!

Last Hurrah Charter Fishing LLC has now caught 63 Rockfish Limits on its last 65 charters!  Some trips, we haven’t been able to keep a lure in the water, other trips required a herculean effort and every trick in the book. Regardless, the fish box has been full almost every day since mid May.

White Perch fishing is also off of the chain now and Bluefish and Spanish Mackerel are on the way.  The boat is currently running out of Annapolis and may /may not stay there for August  depending on what the fish do.

We still have some prime August dates available.  Email, text, or call today to reserve your August trip on the Chesapeake and get in on the fishing fun!

57 Rockfish Limits in 59 Trips

The Last Hurrah has now boxed 57 Rockfish limits on its last 59 Charter Trips!   Some days are tougher than others but we pride ourselves on catching, not just fishing…..and we are relentless in our quest.  White Perch fishing has also been incredible recently.   Bluefish and Spanish Mackerel should be here soon.  We have just a few July dates available for charter but August has plenty of openings.  Email or call us today to book your summer trip.

Stellar Summer Fishing on the Chesapeake

Last Hurrah Charters has boxed Rockfish limits on 40 of its last 42 trips!  (The two on which we didn’t were short trips that handicapped us).  The Rockfish (a.k.a. Striped Bass) are larger than average for this time of year and when they bite, the action is fast and furious.   Hooking up 5 to 12 fish at one time is not uncommon.  Bottom-Fishing for White Perch and Norfolk Spot has become very good also.  With water temps on the rise, Bluefish and Spanish Mackerel won’t be far behind.

The Last Hurrah is currently on Back Creek at 7364 Edgewood Road, Annapolis, MD  21403.  She will be spending all of July there and possibly August.  This is putting us much closer to the best fishing.  We still have some July and August dates available for charter.

Here are a few recent pics….

Chasing Down Chesapeake Rockfish

Despite some windy, rough weather, long boat-rides and a few bouts of lockjaw, fishing was very good most of last week.  Last Hurrah Charters has now caught 33 limits on its last 35 charter trips.   Some days are easier than others.  Fish don’t feed all day long and tides, currents, and other factors dictate bite-windows.   The grade of fish is excellent some days and the White Perch and Spot fishing have turned on big-time.  Here are some pics….


Summertime Fishing on The Chesapeake

Rockfishing in the Upper and Mid Chesapeake Bay continues to be pretty good to excellent depending on the day and conditions.  The fish have been feeding in short windows, so timing and attention to detail have been critical.  Last Hurrah Charters has now boxed 28 consecutive Rockfish limits for its customers and hopes to keep the streak running!  Most of the fish have been ranging from 20 to 24 inches but we’ve boxed quite a few 28 to 33″ as well.  We are trolling and chumming to fool the fish and we will start live-lining if/when the Spot arrive.  White Perch fishing has started and should only get better as the summer progresses.  We have a few dates left in June and several in July.  We offer 2 trips a day, 7 days a week.  (Weekdays are always better as ignorant crowds spook fish on the weekends).

Here are a few  pics of happy customers from the last couple of days….

Fishing is Good–Rockfish Limits Every Trip

Some days are tougher than others, but Last Hurrah Charter Fishing LLC has boxed Rockfish limits on 22 consecutive charter trips.  Every day, a different pattern unfolds and the fishing tactics require constant adjustments.  When the bite window is open, the fishing gets productive fast with Rockfish up to 34-inches coming over the rail.  Last Hurrah Charters still has a few June trips available.  We are also currently booking July and August charters.   Here are some pics from recent trips….

Summer Rockfishing on the Chesapeake

Fishing is excellent right now when the crowds aren’t spooking the fish and ruining it.  Weekdays are best and we have a handful of prime June weekdays available for charter.  If you have to go on a weekend, we have some June afternoon trips still open on Saturdays and Sundays leaving around 1:00/1:30.  The grade of Rockfish is very good with 26 to 35 inch fish being commonplace.

Here are a few, recent pics….

16 Consecutive Rockfish Limits and Counting….

Last Hurrah Charters has boated limits of Striped Bass (Rockfish) on every trip so far since trophy season ended—16 charters and counting.  Be part of the streak and book a trip soon while the bite is still hot.  We have several weekdays left in June available for charter.  Let’s go fishing on the Chesapeake!   Here are some pics from the past week with pretty, resident Rock from 20 to 35 inches.

Resident Rockfish Season is off to a Banner Start!

May 16th was the first day of 2 Rockfish per angler, 20-inches +.  Fishing for these resident Rockfish has been as good as it gets!  Last Hurrah Charters has boxed ten consecutive limits the past week.  The grade of fish has been large and the action has been fast and furious.  Most limits have been coming within an hour of fishing…some within minutes of deploying lures.  Hooking 5-15 fish simultaneously is pretty common.  We have May 30th, 31st, June 1, 2, 5, 6, 7, and 8  all available for charter.  One group hires the whole boat and we can take up to 6 passengers.

Here are some photos from the past week of trips…
