Big Fish

I have spent my whole life fishing the Chesapeake Bay and I have never seen such a large grade of summertime Rockfish.  We are catching 30-36 inch fish on every trip and maxing-out on overs during most charters.  The live-bait situation never did get right, but we don’t need it.   We are trolling custom lures with great success—We’ve boxed limits on the last 18 consecutive trips.  We are booking now for the rest of the season.  It goes to December 20th this year.  (The boat’s cabin is heated so don’t worry about a little cold weather.)

Mixed Bag

Rockfish, Bluefish, Mackerel, Spot, and Perch, oh my!  They are all here and biting.  If you want a mixed bag of different species and a shot at a “Chesapeake Grand Slam”, it’s time to go fishing.  Last Hurrah is booking quick so don’t hesitate.

Trolling up Limits

The bite is right and the weather is perfect.  Let’s go fishing!  Last Hurrah has boxed limits of big Rockfish on its last 15 consecutive charter trips.  We are catching fish from 21 inches up to 35″ and the coolers have been stuffed with beautiful fish.  We have some summer weekdays left to fill.

Here are a few shots from this week….

Last Hurrah Charters continues to fill coolers with limits of big  striped bass…..we’re just doing it a little bit differently than past summers.  The lack of nearby bait in the right size has necessitated some adaptations but the results are better than ever.  The grade of fish has been unprecedented for summertime.  We have come back to the dock on many trips will all of the over-28 fish allowed by law and several fish have been in the 35-inch class.  We have some weekday and weekend-afternoon trips left to fill.  Contact us before summer is over!
