Chesapeake Bay Fishing Reports
Our season starts mid April, when our #1 quarry is
trophy striped bass. If world class striper fishing is what you
want, be sure to be aboard April 15 to May 15. This is your opportunity
to catch that fish of a lifetime. Stripers up to 60 lbs are traveling
our waters through May. Late May things heat up when large
Black Drum up to 80 lbs start their
migration through our portion of the Chesapeake Bay and can be targeted
after Striper fishing.
Early June the
Atlantic Croaker and
Flounder action picks up in the middle Chesapeake Bay area. During
this time we fish light tackle, bottom fishing or drifting for
Flounder. June is when the live bait action starts with the arrival of
Spot. Our normal fishing day starts by catching Spot first thing to
use as bait. Next we move to areas that the Striped bass and Blue Fish
frequent to anchor up and drift the spot. This can be fast and furious
fishing using light spinning rods with little or no weight attached.
This type of fishing runs through October when the Spot leave.
July through October is when the
warm water species show up, such as Spanish Mackerel, Speckled Trout,
Croakers and Spot. All can be taken on light spinning tackle. Early July
is when the “Reel Time” makes its trip to Cape Charles, Va and the
Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel for two weeks. We fish for Cobia, Sharks,
Red Fish, Flounder, Trout and Spadefish. Call early to check dates.
Back to Breezy Point for more live bait fishing until the fall migration
of big Stripers starts around late October. This is another chance
to catch the Trophy Stripers that spend the summer in the ocean.
