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!

13 Days Before 2-Week Rockfish Closure

There is no Rockfishing allowed from July 16th — July 31st.  LHCF has open weekdays before the closure.

Let’s go catchin’!



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.


Open May Trips

There are 7 days in the week, and we fish all of them!  The weekends are by far, the toughest fishing due to massive crowds.   It’s well worth taking a weekday off from work to go Monday through Thursday.  We fish two trips every day:  5:30 a.m. to 11:30 and 12-Noon to 6:00 p.m.  All licenses, rods, tackle and fish-cleaning are provided.  We’ll run out of HHN Marina in Tracy’s Landing for May, and then from Atlantic Marina on the Magothy for the summer months in order to stay on the fish.  We are family and dog friendly!

Here is what we have left open for May:

Morning Trips:  17,  31

Afternoon Trips:  3, 8, 9, 11, 17, 18, 19, 24, 25, 26, 27, 29, 31

Remaining Available May Dates…

The Season is just days away and the Last Hurrah has never looked or ran better!  We have spent the last few months inside a shop working tirelessly, making major upgrades including a brand new Cummins 370 HP diesel motor.
Here is what we have left for May:
Open May mornings:  17, 30, 31
Open May afternoons:   3, 8, 9, 10, 11, 17, 18, 19, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28,29, 30

We will be fishing out of Herrington Harbour North (421 Deale Road, Tracy’s Landing, MD) during May, & out of Atlantic Marina on the Magothy (487 New York Ave., Pasadena) for the summer.   All trips are approx. 6-hours.  Weekdays–$700 flat for boat;  Sat./Sun.–$750.  Mate works for tips.  We can take up to 6.

Season Starts May 1st—Dates Going Fast!

The Maryland Striper Season kicks off: May 1st with the first 15 days being “Trophy” Season.  This is when the jumbo, migrating fish are in the Bay for their annual spawning ritual.  May 16 through December 10th is the regular, resident striper season when the fish are smaller but the action is typically faster.  We’ll be running out of Tracy’s Landing (Deale) MD for all of May and then moving the boat north for the summer to stay on the bite.  Our new, summertime marina is:  Atlantic Marina on the Magothy in Pasadena.  This facility is a major improvement over past summers, and while closer to the fishing grounds, it is only a few minutes north of Annapolis by car.

We run two trips a day, 7-days a week and we can take a maximum of 6 customers.  Mornings depart- 5:30; afternoons- 12:00.  One group hires the boat for private charter.  We are family & dog-friendly so bring your pups!
We are looking forward to another great season.  Dates are going fast—Book your Chesapeake Fishing Charter aboard The Last Hurrah today!!

May Dates Still Open. New Summertime Marina!

The season starts May 1.  The first 15 days is Trophy Rockfish Season and the best chance for that jumbo fish of a lifetime.  If more action is the goal, resident Rockfish season runs May 16 –Dec. 10th.  We’ll be at our usual, beautiful Herrington Harbour North Marina in Tracy’s Landing/Deale for all of May and the Fall.  From June through August, the Hurrah is going home!  We are happy to announce our new summertime marina is:  Atlantic Marina on the Magothy, (The Last Hurrah’s original dry-dock marina).  For the last five summers, we have moved the boat north to Annapolis to stay on the fish.  Last year, even that wasn’t far enough.  This new marina is only a few minutes longer by road from the south but will save considerable time on the water.  Plus, it is an excellent facility and a major upgrade over past summer dockages.
