Last Open May Dates

The Season Starts:  May 1st.   “Trophy Season” runs until May 15th and then the Rockfish limit doubles and the min. size becomes 19″.
We run two trips a day, seven days a week.  Mornings depart no later than 5:30, afternoons between noon and 1:00.  Weekends are the worst days to go—boat traffic and fishing pressure are ridiculous!  Monday through Thursday is best.  We will be running out of Deale during May and out of Annapolis June through August.

Open May Afternoon Trips:  3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 11, 20, 25, 26, 28, 29, 30, 31

 

Booking The Last Few May Dates

The Season Starts May 1st this year.   Trophy Rockfish Season runs until May 15th, and then the regular Rockfish Season runs from May 16th —Dec. 10th.  We fish twice a day, seven days a week, but I strongly recommend going mid-week.  Weekends are a crowded circus out there which spooks fish and makes catching tougher.   Ironically, I have several Tuesdays open which are prime!  We will be departing from Herrington Harbour North in Tracy’s Landing all of May.  We can take a max of 6 customers, but less is fine too.  We provide all licenses, rods, reels, tackle and fish-fileting.

Whack-n-Stack Macs!

The Spanish Mackerel bite is nothing short of epic right now but it won’t last long.  Macs are extremely fast and once the water temps cool, they’re gone.  Forget about weekends!  Clueless crowds make everything exponentially more difficult on the weekends.  Take a day off of work, grab some friends, co-workers etc. and take a trip on The Last Hurrah.  We offer morning and afternoon departures, 7-days a week.  We can take a max of 6 customers, but less is fine.  (One group hires the boat and pricing is flat regardless of  party-size.)

We only had two gentlemen today, and they caught their rockfish limit, their 15 per/man spanish mackerel limit, 10 bluefish and 40 spot!

Fish Boxes are Filling Up & So Is the August Calendar

Fishing continues to be excellent with the afternoon bite being better lately.  Too many  people / boats on the Bay  is usually our biggest challenge.  Book a weekday and plan on leaving early.  We run two trips a day, seven days a week.   Here are some light-tackle limits from the past week…

Booking the Rest of May Dates

The Maryland 2019 Fishing Season is off and running!  The Trophy Rockfish run has been tough during the first few days, but the bite is showing signs of improvement and  things can change substantially within a few hours on the Bay.   The legal limit for Trophy Season is:  One  Rockfish (striped bass) per angler, per day at 35-inches or longer.  Starting May 16th, the limit doubles to two fish per angler, one extra for the crew and they only need to be 19-inches and longer.  These resident fish school up and the action has been excellent during the  last 2 weeks of May in recent years.

We run 2 trips a day, seven days a week.  5:30 a.m. departure and 12:30 or 1:00 p.m. in the afternoon.  We can take a max of 6 customers.

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 Light Tackle Fishing Out of Annapolis

The fish moved, so we did too!  The Last Hurrah is currently (and temporarily)  docked at:
7364 Edgewood Rd. Annapolis, MD 21403.   Slip # 2.  

We are now chumming with light-tackle spinning rods.  The Rockfishing has been stellar with fast limits of fish up to 34 inches every trip.  We still have some June dates left to fill.  Remember, weekdays are far better due to smaller crowds.
