Chesapeake Rockfishing at its Finest

The live bait still hasn’t made an appearance, but that hasn’t stopped us from smashing big Striped Bass (a.k.a. “Rockfish”) on almost every trip for the last six weeks.   The action has been exciting to say the least with multiple hook-ups commonplace.  There have  been a few occasions when we hooked 25-28 Rockfish simultaneously!  On average, the grade of fish has been unusually large for summertime residents with many trips yielding several 33+ inch fish!  Avoiding the ignorant, fish-spooking crowds has been crucial to success.  Fish are wild animals and will not tolerate hundreds of boats running circles over them making a racket.   Some White Perch are starting to make an appearance and the word down the Bay is that Bluefish are headed our way.  Here are some pics from the last week….

Summertime Fishing on the Chesapeake Bay

Fishing is red hot on the middle and upper Chesapeake Bay right now.  Last Hurrah Charters has caught 26 consecutive Striped Bass limits and catching 5 to 25 fish simultaneously is commonplace.  Some White Perch are starting to arrive, and they are providing bottom-fishing opportunities as well.   Bluefish and Spanish Mackerel should migrate in a little later in the summer.

Last Hurrah Charters is currently booking its remaining dates for July & August.  Contact us today to book your DAY ON THE BAY!

Whackin & Stackin

Fishing in the middle Chesapeake Bay continues to be off the charts for those in the know.  We have been catching  limits of 21 to 34 inch Rockfish on every trip for weeks now.  The action is usually fast & exciting with several multiple hook-ups being the norm.  We have just a few June dates left.  Come get in on the fun!

Fishing is as good as it gets right now!

Trophy Season may be over but we are still hammering fast limits of big fish.  The bite has been crazy lately with a beautiful grade of 20-34 inch striped bass chomping on lures as fast and furious as the anglers can handle.  June is getting pretty full, but we still have a few dates left to book.  Here are some catches from the last few trips…
