Chesapeake Bay 101

The Chesapeake Bay is a unique and fascinating body of water.  It runs two-hundred miles long and varies from three to thirty miles wide making it the country’s largest estuary.  If its shoreline were unraveled, it would reach from the east coast to the west coast and back.  Experts believe that the Bay was formed over 10,000 years ago when the original Susquehanna River Valley flooded from melted ice.  It is fed by 150 different rivers and tributaries, with each one playing its own important role within the ecosystem.  According to NOAA, over 250 species of fish and shellfish call the Chesapeake Bay their home.  Of all these aquatic critters, the Striped Bass, or “Rockfish” is probably the most sought-after by anglers.  Catching these tasty, hard-fighting fish is a specialty of Last Hurrah Charters.
