What To Bring

FISHING

The Chesapeake Bay is a fishermans paradise. With a wide variety of species, long seasons, and different tackle and techniques anglers from 3-93 can find a suitable species to target.
 
In the spring large Striped Bass, called Rockfish here, migrate up the Chesapeake Bay to spawn, then return to the Atlantic Ocean.  For up to 2 months fish from 15 to 40 pounds are caught trolling, sometimes near the surface. A fish of a lifetime can be had in this season, usually from mid April to late May, depending on the water temperature. 
 
The late spring and summer bring in some smaller rockfish, and chumming season starts. This allows the use of light spinning rods. White perch begin to bite also.
 
In mid to late summer bluefish, spot and croaker come into the upper bay. Bottom fishing gets hot with the weather. Coolers full of pan fish keep youngsters and adults alike grinning ear to ear with non stop light tackle action.
 
"Old Bay" has a full suite of electronics gear to get on top of fish and stay there. GPS, chatplotters, and state of the art fish finders are part of the arsenal. Nothing beats good old fashioned common sense and experience though, and of course patience.
