Back in Deale, Bookin’ Trips and Rippin’ Lips!

The Last Hurrah is back in her usual berth at Herrington Harbour North Marina in Tracy’s Landing (Deale, MD).  The weather is cooling down but the fishing is still HOT.  We run every day that we can book until December 15th, so book your FALL FISHING TRIP on the Chesapeake with us today!  Let’s go catchin’!

Last Hurrah for Summer Light Tackle

Summer is running out and the live bait won’t be here for much longer.  Book your Chesapeake Bay light-tackle trip aboard The Last Hurrah today, and get in on some fast and furious live-lining action!  We will be moving the boat back down to Tracy’s Landing (Deale) soon.

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!

7 Minute Bass

The light-tackle fishing for striped bass is off of the chain right now.  10 in 7 minutes this morning and a 150  White Perch afterwards.  Weekday trips are the best as there are far too many clueless people with boats on the Bay, and they make our job infinitely  more difficult.

We are still fishing out of Annapolis.  We offer two trips a day, seven days a week and we can take up to 6 customers.

Open July Morning Trips:  7, 8, 10, 12, 14, 15, 17, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 30, 31.

Let’s Go Catchin’!!

Summer Rockfish Bite is On!

Trolling for Rockfish (striped bass) is good right now.  We’ve caught limits on almost every trip since 5/16.  Volatile weather has given the fish lockjaw a few times but when they do bite, it is game-on!  It’s not uncommon to hook 8 or 10 at once.  Weekends are the worst as huge, ignorant crowds make the fishing much tougher. We have prime June and July weekdays available.  Email or call us today to book your summertime fishing trip on the Chesapeake Bay!

Here are some pics from this past week:

Only a Few May Dates Left

The regular Rockfish Season begins May 16th when the limit doubles to 2 fish per angler and they only need to be 19″.  You can still keep any big ones that may be around also.  These resident fish school up and they are easier to target on average.  We have a few prime dates left to book.  Here are a few recent pics of the Trophy Season….

2019 Spring Trophy Rockfish Season

Spring Trophy Rockfish Season on the Chesapeake Bay is right around the corner.  Trophy Season starts:  Saturday, April 20th and goes to May 15th.  During this period, all striped bass (rockfish) must be 35 inches or longer and each customer is allowed to keep one.  From May 16th to December 15th, the size requirement is 19 inches and each customer is allowed two fish and the  crew can keep one.

We run two trips a day, seven days a week.  Mornings depart at 5:30 a.m. and afternoons at 12:30.  Weekdays are always easier because the crowds are smaller.  We can take a max of 6 customers.  Less folks is fine, but pricing is flat for the boat and we do not mix groups—-one group hires the boat for their private charter.

We currently have Opening Day open, as well as April 23, 24, 25, 28 and 29.  Email for May and June trip availability.

Summer Stripers

Fishing continues to be good to excellent when ridiculously huge crowds aren’t scaring the fish to oblivion.  Weekends are a complete circus with ignorant boaters running through and even trolling through chum-slicks and chunk-lines.  Common sense and common courtesy do not exist out there, so we strongly recommend booking weekdays if at all possible.  Despite the challenges, Last Hurrah Charters has caught over 50 consecutive Rockfish limits and hopes to keep the streak alive.  Some days, the white perch fishing is very good. Other days. they are tough to find.  A few  Bluefish and Mackerel  have been spotted down the Bay, but they haven’t  arrived in numbers yet.  We currently have July 20, 22, 23, and 31 open for charter.  We also have several prime August dates available.  Here are some pics from the last few days….
