Last Hurrah for August

Summer is almost over and Last Hurrah Charter Fishing has prime, open weekdays. We are still running out of our northern marina on the Magothy River. We have been catching limits of Rockfish every trip with some catfish and eating-size white perch as a bonus. We will move the boat south to our Deale marina and start targeting mackerel and bluefish soon.
Come out and enjoy some summertime fishing on the beautiful Chesapeake Bay.

August Fishing Dates

The Maryland Striped Bass Season re-opens on Monday, August 1st and runs until December 10th. There are plenty of Perch, Spot and Catfish around also. Bluefish are starting to make their way north. Spanish Mackerel have also made an appearance down the Bay, although they aren’t quite close enough for us yet.

Last Hurrah Charter Fishing still has some prime-time August dates available. We run 5:30-11:30 a.m. and 12:00–6:00 p.m., 7 days a week. Mon.-Thurs. is by far the best bet as weekend crowds have been enormous and even more disrespectful and discourteous than usual.
We can take a max of 6 customers. Families and dogs are welcomed and encouraged to come. Email us today to get your trip on the books before summer is over!

The Last Hurrah

Last Hurrah for Summer Fishing

Last Hurrah Charter Fishing has prime, weekdays available for August & September. We will either stay up north for Rockfishing or move the boat back South for Spanish Mackerel and Bluefish. We spend a great deal for two, marina slips so we can be wherever the best fishing is!!
Let’s go catching!

August Fishing Dates

There’s a 2-week Striped Bass Season Closure, but it’s back to business starting: August 1st. Last Hurrah Charters has prime dates open for August Striper fishing. Monday through Thursday is the way to go since weekend crowds are at their all-time worst and they have zero respect or common courtesy for anyone.
We can take a max of six customers; less is fine. Dogs are always welcome on board!

July and August Fishing

We have plenty of prime weekdays in July and August open.  We’re running out of the Magothy River and we can take up to 6 customers.  Dogs are also always welcome on board!

Summer Fishing

There’s nothing easy in 2022, but Last Hurrah Charter Fishing is still fishing.  On-water diesel is pushing $7/gallon and somehow there are still crowds of clueless boat operators on the water adding to the challenges.   Monday through Thursday is best.

LHCF is currently docked at Atlantic Marina on the Magothy—487 New York Avenue, Pasadena, MD 21122.

We have July and August weekdays open for Rockfish charters. We can take a max of 6.

Fishing On FIRE —June Openings

Fishing is as good as it gets right now on resident rockfish. The limit is now 2 per customer 19″+ on charters and the action is fast and furious.  We are trolling up limits with several fish hooked up at once!

We are running out of Atlantic Marina on the Magothy at 487 New York Avenue Pasadena, MD 21122.  It’s close to the fish and very nice facility.

Let’s go catching!

 

Rockfish Season has Commenced!

The trophy season was a grind but the regular rockfish is off and running now.  The limit has doubled to two per angler and the size must be 19″+.  The action has been good thus far with limits each trip.

WEEKDAYS ARE FAR BETTER FISHING

Here is what we have open in June:
Morning Trips:  1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 14, 15, 16, 17, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30
Afternoon Trips:  1, 3, 5, 7, 8, 13, 14, 16, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 28, 29, 30.

Resident Rockfish Season Starts Monday!

Well, the 2022 Trophy Rockfish season was a disappointment, but the main event starts Monday—the regular/resident Rockfish Season.  The limit goes from 1 to 2 fish per angler, the size requirement drops to 19″, and the action should be much greater since we’ll be targeting schooling, resident fish versus solitary migrators.   We are already seeing signs that this should be a good year.  May 31st is our last open morning trip this month, but we have afternoon trips  (12:00–6:00) available as well as June and July dates.
WEEKDAYS ARE FAR BETTER DUE TO CROWDS!

Cancelation for this Saturday Morning; Booking Resident Rockfish Season

We are a little past halfway through “Trophy Rockfish Season.”  The fish have been enormous, but getting bites requires patience.  We just had a cancelation for this Saturday a.m. May 14th.  We run two trips every day 5:30-11:30 a.m. and 12:00 to 6:00 p.m.  We will be running out of Herrington Harbour North Marina in Tracy’s Landing/Deale, MD until the end of the month.  We’ll be moving the boat north to Atlantic Marina on the Magothy in Pasadena, MD in early June when the resident Rockfish push north.
Starting May 16th, the size requirement drops to 19 inches, the limit doubles to two per angler, and the action typically increases significantly.  May 14th and 31st are my only open morning trips for May but we have open weekday afternoons and plenty of June availability.
