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….

Spanish Mackerel Time! Open August Dates.

The Last Hurrah is back in Tracy’s Landing (Deale) and we will be chasing Spanish Mackerel and Bluefish for the next two weeks.  This is a blast and the limits are much higher than most fish—-15 macs per man and 5 blues per man.  Let’s go fill the fish-box!  We have the following open dates:
August 18, 19, 23, 24, 26, 27, 28, 29-am only,  30-am only, and 31.

We can take up to 6 customers but less is fine.  Let’s go catching!

Fishing is Hotter Than The Weather !!

Summer is flying by quickly, and NOW is the time to book your Chesapeake Bay fishing trip!  We have just a few dates available before September.  It’s looking like we’ll be fishing out of Annapolis until at least mid-August.  Live-Lining for Rockfish has been good to stellar most days with a few successful “grinds” mixed in to keep things interesting.  There is no Rockfishing allowed from August 16th through the 31st.  This will be the time to whack-n-stack, Spanish Macs!   Last year was the best Spanish Mackerel run in Chesapeake history with 30 to 50 fish catches being commonplace.  Bluefish are also starting to make their way up the Bay.  Shoot us an email today and let’s go catching!

Here are some pics from the last few weeks…..



 

Fishing is on Fire & the Calendar is Filling Up Quickly

We are still running out of Annapolis and likely will be until mid-August.  (It all depends on the fish.)  Fishing is outstanding and we are catching them on light-tackle right now.  We offer a 5:30 a.m. departure trip and a 11:30/12:00 trip.  We can take a max of 6 customers.

Remember, targeting Striped Bass (Rockfish) from August 16th through August 31st has been outlawed this year.  We will be fishing for Spanish Mackerel and Bluefish during this time-frame.   July is booked solid; here are the Open August dates:   5, 6, 12, 13, 14,  16 thru 29th.  Summer is flying by—-Let’s Go Catching!

 

Puttin’ Rocks in the Box

We are currently fishing out of Annapolis, MD in order to reach the fish.  Fishing just doesn’t get any better than it has been lately.  We have boxed Rockfish limits on 45 of our last 46 trips.  Lately, we have been catching as fast as we can get baits into the water.  We’re using light-tackle right now which is a blast and ideal for kids.   We only have a few days left open in July but August has lots of openings.  I don’t know when we will move the boat back down to Tracy’s Landing/Deale…depends on the fish.   A reminder—There is NO ROCKFISHING this year from August 16th to August 31st.  We will be targeting Bluefish, Spanish Mackerel and Bottom-Fish during that period.
The time to book is NOW!

Light Tackle Fishing Out of Annapolis

Hey light-tackle fans,

Live-Lining has begun!!  We are now using light spinning rods to battle Striped Bass 19 to 32 inches.  Fishing could not possibly be any better.  The catching is fast and furious most trips.  We are currently docked in Annapolis and offering morning and afternoon departures.

OPEN DATES:
June  29th is now open due to a cancellation.

July  7 (pm only), 13, 14, 20, 21, 22, 23, 29, 31 for am or pm.

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.
