Once one of the most popular vacation spots in the state, Chesapeake Beach has that classic “beach break” vibe that you can’t help but fall in love with. From its historic railway station to its great water park and, yes, beautiful beaches, the town has everything you need for a fun seaside vacation. Chesapeake Beach fishing charters are no exception. Step aboard one of the town’s many charter boats, and you could be hitting oyster bars, shoals, shallow bays, and deep holes within a few minutes of leaving town.

Chesapeake Beach Fishing Spots

Chesapeake Beach fishing has a lot to offer all year round, but the local fisheries really come into their own in the summer. During the tourist high season, the warm waters of the Middle Bay draw in a huge range of species, and you’re spoiled for choice of where to fish. There a few spots you have to try if you want to get the most out of the area, though.
 

Fishing Creek

With a name like “Fishing Creek”, it would be rude not to wet your lines here. The waterway has certainly earned its name, with big Spanish Mackerel and Stripers making their way into surprisingly tight waters. This area is also used as a nursery for Oysters, in an attempt to increase numbers in the bay.
 

Holland Point Bar

Just a stone’s throw north of town, this is a great spot for many different. Croakers, Spot, and Perch make the area their summer home, as do the monster Stripers and Hardhead Catfish who feed on them. If you’re after good food fishing, you don’t need to look further than this.
 

The Hill

If you do head a little further out (and we’re still only talking 10 miles or so) you hit The Hill - a great bank for Flounder and Croaker fishing. You can often find big Stripers, too, so you can enjoy a variety of fishing styles here.
 

Devil’s Hole

Dropping over 120 feet in places, these are some of the deepest waters around and are home to some really big fish because of that. Bluefish, Stripers, and much, much more can be caught out here, making for great game fishing. You can also hit the local buoys for Croaker and Spot.
 

The Summer Gooses

This is another great spot for Blues and Rockfish. You can get Stripers up to three feet long here during the summer, alongside more occasional hits of trophy Bluefish. If nothing’s biting, you can always hit their seasonal counterpart - the Winter Gooses - on the way back to town.
 

Chesapeake Beach Fishing Pier

If you don’t trust your sea legs or just prefer to fish from land, the North Beach Fishing Pier is your best bet for finding big fish. You can catch trophy Stripers from the pier, and it can also be a productive spot for crabbing. You have to pay to fish from the pier, but it can be well worth it.

Fishing Techniques

The best game fish in the Chesapeake Bay has to be Striped Bass. Big Cow Stripers top every Maryland angler’s summer wishlist, and they can be great fun to catch in a variety of ways. Live-lining Spot, Menhaden, or small Croakers is the most effective way of bringing in fish, but throwing lures on spinning tackle is way more fun. Topwater plugs, crankbaits, jigs, poppers - the fish aren’t fussy, they’ll take whatever you send their way! 
 
When it comes to Chesapeake Beach’s food fisheries, though, you’re best off keeping things simple with fresh live baits. Flounder love the same prey as Stripers, only smaller. Seatrout and Redfish will gobble up most baitfish, while Tautog and Black Bass prefer the Crab which live around their rocky habitats. Chicken-rigged cut baits can also be effective for many bottom fish, but they normally bring in smaller specimens.
 
Crabbing is a big part of Maryland life. You can catch Crab with dip nets without even needing a license. Head out on a charter, and you’ll be using either collapsible traps or trotlines to bring in a real feast of these tasty shellfish. The best part is that you can set your traps or lines, enjoy a great day of Striper fishing, then just pick up the Crab on the way back to the dock.

Need to Know

Fishing licenses are included on Chesapeake Beach fishing charters. If you’re fishing from shore or from a pier, you will need to buy a license. Pick one up online or from approved vendors locally. If you’re planning on fishing from North Beach Pier, it costs $7 per day, or you can pick up a season pass for $65 (cost subject to change).

The fishing is slow in January, and most of the important fish are out of town… Just kidding! Enjoy awesome catch & release action for Striped Bass, or head to rocky structure to bag tasty Tautog.

Weather on the Bay in May can be unpredictable. We ran into a pod of dolphins which gut the fishing down a bit.

Started out a rough and rainy day. Thunder storms delayed the trip. Decided at the last minute to go. Hit the water 20 minutes later we were catching the fish. By 12 we hit our 750 cap. Couldn’t go trolling because of impending weather but with our current catch it was a great day. Without a doubt I will use this boat again.

I have fished with Capt. Travis many times & have always had a blast. He is determined to find the fish & make it fun. Unlike many guides he also spends a ton of time helping his customers up their fishing game. Highly recommend fishing with him on his awesome boat.

We were a bunch of inexperienced girls for our first official fishing trip on Reel Attitude. The crew had a great attitude, and they were really patient with us. We had such a nice chill day, and it was fun to catch all the fish we caught! We can't wait to book our fall fishing trip! Thanks so much!

Captain and first mate Bobby were great with the entire family and put us on a lot of fish. I wish I would have known ahead of time what species we were targeting. Overall great experience but not challenging enough for our family. Will hopefully rebook in the future for a more challenging catch.

It was a great day and the weather was perfect. Cpt. Wayne was honest with us about the limited number of Rockfish. We really wanted them, but he told us we would be very successful with Dpot, Crocker, and perch. He was absolutely correct. We'd rather have plenty of fish to take home versus none with the rockfish. If you book Cpt. Wayne and Doug, you will not be disappointed. Thanks again.

We had a beautiful morning on the water with Captain Wayne and First Mate Doug celebrating our sons 6th birthday. We only got a couple of skates and no fish for the 6 hours, but it wasn’t for lack of the captain trying to find the fish. They weren’t biting for us or many boats around us that day, but we still had a special celebration with music, cupcakes, and great weather!

Three of us went out on the afternoon half day trip with captain Joe. He was very experienced and patient and took a lot of time to teach different fishing techniques based off of the location. We had a very fun time and caught some nice rock fish! Captain joe even cleaned our keepers. Highly recommend going out with captain Joe!

Joe was great! Very flexible about scheduling (our group size changed a couple of times beforehand), and extremely accommodating on the water. We had one adult and five 12-year-old boys, and Joe made sure we all had a great time and caught a ton of fish. We'd definitely recommend him, and we'll be back as well.

We were looking everywhere to book a charter for the Labor Day, but everywhere was booked until I found reel attitude with captain Jon. Some of us were new to fishing and Jon and Scott did everything for us so that we can just focus on catching more fish. Ended up catching a massive Cobia that we took home and a whole lot of spot fish. Would definitely recommend and I’d definitely comeback when I have another chance to. Such a great experience!!
