ROCKTOBER!!! Open Dates

The weather is perfect and the fish are fat!  There is bait everywhere and the Rockfish are plump footballs.  They are scattered and it takes some patience and work some days, but we have been putting together nice boxes of Rockfish limits on every trip.  The calendar is loosening up and now is the time to BOOK YOUR FALL FISHING TRIP ABORD THE LAST HURRAH.   (Season goes till December 10th.)

Open October dates:   9th, 12th, 13th, 14th, 18th, 19th, 20th 21st, 22nd, 23rd, 26th, 27th, 28th, 30th and 31st.  

Here are some pics from the last week….

 

 

 

Just a few days left open in September

It’s been a crazy-busy summer for Last Hurrah Charters.  We have chased fish all over the middle and upper Chesapeake Bay.  Rockfish season resumed on 9/1 and will go until December 10th this year.  The boat is back in Herrington Harbour North Marina, in Tracy’s Landing, Maryland.  It is one of the nicest marinas in the country and we are glad to be in our primary slip.  Nothing has been easy in 2020, but we have persevered and filled the fish-box on almost all of our trips.  Bottom-fishing for Norfolk Spot and White Perch is still on fire, and we will continue to live-line for Rockfish until the bait becomes scarce.

These are our last open dates for September:  9th 14th, 15th, 22nd, 28th, 29th and 30th.

Here are some pics from the last couple of weeks….

Charter Operations and Covid-19 Update

Last Hurrah Charters will commence charter operations on May 16th with some special precautions.  We will be providing sanitizer on board, wiping surfaces frequently, and requiring customers to wear masks while in the confined space of the wheelhouse.

Starting May 16th, charterboats are allowed 2 striped bass per customer at 19 inches or larger.   The last few weeks of May can be some of the best fishing of the year.  We offer a 5:30 a.m. trip and an afternoon trip that departs at noon or 1:00.  We may be moving the boat to our Annapolis marina in June depending on where the fishing is better.   We can take a max of six customers, but less is fine. 

Currently, May 16, 22, 26, 27, 28, 29 and 30 are available. 

Please contact us today to book your trip!

Book Your Light-Tackle, Live-Lining Trip Before the Bait Leaves!!

Fishing remains excellent with the afternoon bite being better than the mornings lately.  The live bait will likely be exited the Bay within the next few weeks, so don’t procrastinate on booking your live-lining trip.  Catching Rockfish limits on light, spinning rods is a blast!  Weekdays are always better because the crowds are smaller.  We are still fishing out of our Annapolis marina slip, but we will be moving back down to Tracy’s Landing (Deale) soon.  Book your trip today!

Fishing is HOTTER than the Weather

Despite all of the fear-mongering from the worthless weathermen, Last Hurrah Charters ran twelve trips last week and smashed fish on every one.  Light-tackle Striped Bass (Rockfish) and White Perch fishing just doesn’t get any better.  200-400 fish days were the norm last week.  And as for the weather….it’s summer…it gets hot in the summer.  Pack some water and Gatorade and come fishing with us.  This bite is not gonna’ last forever, so contact us today to book your summer smashfest on the beautiful Chesapeake Bay.  We are still running out of Annapolis and we have open early-August dates available.

Booking July Live-Lining Trips

Fishing is phenomenal right now and we have prime dates available!  We are smashing fast Rockfish limits and catching 100-250 bottom fish every trip lately.  Weekdays are far better due to crowd issues.  We have several prime dates between now and the end of the month.  We are currently docked in Annapolis and we can take 6  customers.  Let’s go catching!  Here are some happy folks from the last few days with their fish…..
