Available Dates Starting this Weekend!

The weather is cooling down but the fishing is still hot.  With schools back in session and vacations spent, bookings have slowed.   Last Hurrah Charters has prime dates open for charter as soon as this weekend.  We’ll fish everyday possible until the season ends on December 15th, so take advantage of the great fishing and smaller crowds on the Bay right now!  We run morning and afternoon trips for groups up to six.   Hurry while there are still Spanish Mackerel around to chase!

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’!

One Last Hurrah for Summer Fishing

The Last Hurrah is still docked in Annapolis and will continue fishing out of there until something changes with the fish.  Currently, fishing is excellent close to our Naptown marina and we are enjoying light-tackle limits of Striped Bass (Rockfish) and loads of Perch and Spot.  Some days, Spanish Mackerel are also available.  We have some open dates for the second half of August, so book your trip now and have one “last hurrah”  this summer.

Open August Dates:  14, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 25, 26, 27, 28, 30, 31.

 

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.

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’!!

May 16th— Regular Rockfish Season Commences!

Okay, so the 2019 Trophy Rockfish Season was a challenging one to say the least, but that’s almost behind us.   Starting Thursday, we can catch the resident Rock, the creel limit doubles, and they only have to be 19-inches.
Pack your bags, ’cause we’re going to “SMASHTOWN”!   There are already a ton of nice, resident Rockfish around and we have been catching several each trip for the last week.  The regular season should be a great one with fast action, full coolers and happy anglers.

Last Hurrah Charters is currently booking up its last few May dates as well as June.

Contact us a.s.a.p. to book your trip.

2019 Maryland Striped Bass Season is Right Around the Corner

The 2019 Maryland Striped Bass (Rockfish) Season begins on Saturday, April 20th.  These first few weeks comprise our “Trophy Season” where the large, migratory Stripers are in the Chesapeake for their annual spawning ritual.  This is BIG FISH time where the Rockfish average 15 to 45 pounds!  Each customer is allowed one fish that measures 35 inches or greater.  We are excited to get back out on the beautiful Chesapeake Bay and chase these trophy fish.
We run 2 trips a day, 7 days a week.  Mornings depart early–5:15 / 5:30 a.m. and afternoons at 12:30.  Weekends get very crowded out there and boats spook fish, so we highly recommend booking a weekday if at all possible.  We  provide all licenses, rods, reels, lures, tackle, and fishing equipment.   It’s a short window for the jumbos and trips are booking up quickly so don’t procrastinate in securing your Spring date.

 

76 Rockfish Limits in 78 Charter Trips—Now Using Light Tackle!

Live-bait fishing with light tackle is off the chain right now.  We’ve been catching Striped Bass (Rockfish) quick, fast and in a hurry each trip from the second that the anchor is dropped until the limit is in the box.  We’ve now boxed 76 Rockfish limits on our last 78 trips.  Bottom-Fishing is good to excellent lately with all sizes of White Perch and Spot available.

August 21st through 25th is available for charter.  We offer 2 trips a day, seven days a week.   Contact us today to reserve your trip.

Chasing Down Chesapeake Rockfish

Despite some windy, rough weather, long boat-rides and a few bouts of lockjaw, fishing was very good most of last week.  Last Hurrah Charters has now caught 33 limits on its last 35 charter trips.   Some days are easier than others.  Fish don’t feed all day long and tides, currents, and other factors dictate bite-windows.   The grade of fish is excellent some days and the White Perch and Spot fishing have turned on big-time.  Here are some pics….

 

Weekly Report: 8/5-8/11

The light-tackle Rockfishing continues to be excellent.  Some days are a little better than others depending on how many boats are spooking the fish.  We have been fortunate to box Rockfish limits on 24 consecutive trips and are hoping to keep the streak alive as long as possible!  Bluefish are popping up here and there.  Some jumbo White Perch and Spot are still being caught as well.  Our schedule is starting to open up a bit so call to book a trip!
