Summer Rockfishing on the Chesapeake

The weather is getting nice and the fishing couldn’t be any better.  Large schools of fat, resident Rockfish are feeding aggressively and providing fast and furious action for anglers.  We have been catching our limit of fish up to 34 inches quickly each trip and releasing 10-20 more while bringing in the rig.  Weekdays are much better fishing since the weekends find the Bay packed with ignorant crowds.  Last Hurrah Charters still has prime June dates available but they are going quickly.

Resident Rockfish Roundup

The 2016 Trophy Rockfish Season was an interesting one.  Strange weather patterns, an abnormal migration and excessive boating and tug traffic all presented challenges.  Despite the fog, fronts and frustration, Last Hurrah Charters caught a lot of trophy fish and boxed quite a few limits.  Starting tomorrow, (Monday, May 16th), the creel limit doubles and the rockfish only need to be 20-inches.  These resident, non-spawning stripers travel in schools and the action can be fast-n-furious with frequent hook-ups of 5-20 fish simultaneously.  The next few months are booking up so don’t delay in making your reservation for some mid Bay striped bass fun!

Chesapeake Rockfishing is at its best….few dates left

Fishing has been stellar the last several trips with fast limits of BIG rockfish going into the cooler.  Winds have been light, seas calm and fish hungry.  We have just a few dates left to book.  If you want to capitalize on a hot trophy rockfish bite, give us a call right away.
