FAQs about Fishing Charters in Chesapeake Bay

The average price for a private 4 hour Chesapeake Bay fishing trip is $539, while an 8 hour private trip will cost you $867 based on prices on FishingBooker.com.

According to customer reviews, Chasin’ Dreams Sportfishing, Salt Tale Charters, and Double Play Sportfishing are some of the most popular fishing charters in Chesapeake Bay. Full list of top fishing charters in Chesapeake Bay.

Chasin’ Dreams Sportfishing, Salt Tale Charters, and Double Play Sportfishing all received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Chesapeake Bay.

The most popular fish species you can target are Striped Bass, Spanish Mackerel, and Bluefish. Top fishing techniques include equipo ligero, troleo, and pesca de fondo. Inshore fishing, nearshore fishing, and river fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

 
There are few bodies of water as prolific as the Chesapeake Bay. With hundreds of rivers flowing into it, over 200 miles of bay, and access to the Atlantic, it’s an angler’s paradise. The best way to explore it is on one of the numerous Chesapeake Bay fishing charters, where a professional guide will take you to all the sweet spots to get your hands on the prized fish on offer.
 
Speaking of the fish, the list of creatures you can target is like a who’s who of inshore and nearshore fish. Striped Bass, known locally as Rockfish, are a must for all anglers who come here, but there’s plenty more where that came from. Perch, Red Drum, Black Drum, Black Seabass, Spotted Seatrout, and Flounder are just some of the delicious creatures you can find in the shallows.
 
On top of that, there’s also the chance to test your skills and strength against Tarpon in the hidden flats! Meanwhile, in the more open waters, Spanish Mackerel, Cobia, Bluefish, and many more may be biting. And that’s before we even think about offshore, where Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Billfish, and more await.
 
Chesapeake Bay fishing charters have something for everyone. From 4 hour dashes to the inshore shallows to mammoth multiday deep water adventures. Full day trips to target Rockfish are the most popular, though, as this all-round fish provides plenty of fun and even more meat. Visit anywhere on the Virginia or Maryland shoreline, and you’ll find exactly what you want. 
 

Reglas & Regulaciones

Every adult angler in the Chesapeake Bay needs a fishing license. Both Virginia and Maryland saltwater licenses are valid, but you’ll need to sign up for the other’s Saltwater Angler Registration. For all other regulations, including size and bag limits, and closed seasons, head out with a reputable charter guide, who’ll make sure you fish within the law.

Enero

The cold can scare off anglers, but those of you bold enough can give it a try for some Perch and Crappie. Just make sure to stick to the flowing waters of the rivers to get in on the action.

Febrero

There's a good chance it may be wet, so the fish won't be out on the bay. Pair up with a local guide to take you on the water, and you could hist the tributaries for Perch and Crappie.

Marzo

It's officially Striped Bass season, although it may take some weeks to warm up. Speaking of warmups, you can do just that by heading to the creeks to fish for Perch, Crappie, and more.

Abril

It’s all about that trophy Rockfish. Get on the water and start searching for 50 pounds of pure strength. The weather’s just about right for fishing, and the season kicks off in earnest!

Mayo

The hunt for trophy Rockfish continues as the crowds keep on growing. Luckily, there’s plenty of fish in the bay for all anglers that come out to play, so hit the bay, bridges, and flats for your prized catch. 

Junio

There's plenty going on as summer breaks through. Spot, Croaker, Bluefish, Perch, Trout, and Redfish all start to bite, while Rockfish remain the most sought-after fish. Get ready for a mixed bag!

Julio

The humd summer is here, but you don't want to miss the incredible bite of Rockfish, Redfish, Trout, and Cobia. Perch are also biting well and, later in the month, Spanish Mackerel start showing up.

Agosto

The party is in full swing as trolling produces Cobia and Spanish Mackerel. Fish in the shallow waters to get Redfish and Trout, or rig your hook with Spot and try live lining for Rockfish. It's all going on!

Septiembre

The Mackerel bite still lingers, with Rockfish striking steadily in anticipation of "Rocktober." You can also get Croaker, Perch, Bluefish, Redfish, and Cobia, as the crowds die down but the fishing remains hot.

Octubre

Read any Chesapeake Bay fishing report and you’ll see that Rockfish are getting bigger before their second annual epic bite explodes in November. You can also get Summer Flounder, Croaker, and Perch.

Noviembre

Showtime! Trophy Striped Bass are on fire and they should make it to the top of your wish list. Trolling with bait and lures is an effective way to get them, so settle in for a productive trip to sea.

Diciembre

There's no sign of the trophy Rockfish disappearing, and plenty of keen anglers are looking to keep warm by testing their strength against these monsters. Keep an eye on the weather, though, as it can get cold.

I think other than the weather fishing would’ve been a little better, plus going in trophy rock season probably wouldn’t do that again but we did catch some decent size cat fish.

Just know fishing can go either way. Some days you hit the jackpot, and other days you just catch some fish. But, a bad day fishing beats a good day at work, every time. Enjoy the ocean, forget the cell phone except to take photos, and have a relaxing day.

If you’re hoping for rock fish (or whatever fish) make sure you can catch them. Turns out we missed fishing for rock fish by a day. Disappointing but still had a great time! Yes! We released the rock fish.

Cpt. George and his first mate did an excellent job making it a fun trip with fish in the boat for my kids first charter. The weather didn’t cooperate but he quickly changed tactics and was able to stay out of the wind/waves for the safety of my young kinds but still put us on fish for them to catch and have a great time. They’re already talking about wanting to do it again and we will for sure book another trip with Cpt. George and Islander Sportsfishing!

Had a great time out with these guys. The Captain and Mate were great. This trip was a part of a site seeing experience for my grandmother who was visiting from Illinois. She had a great time and so did the rest of our party. We all caught several fish, saw many dolphins, enjoyed conversation and views. Would recommend, and will be booking another trip. Thanks guys.

This was our first time on the Potomac since we moved to Northern Virginia, and we hit the jackpot finding Osprey Fishing Charters! We knew late June with the heat may have presented a challenge, but Captain Rich knew the river and we found fish! First time fishing for small mouth, and we learned so much. He took the time to explain the area and we got to try out all different kinds of baits and lures. Grabbed lots of small mouth and even a couple catfish. We can't wait for the next trip!!

We had the greatest time fishing with Captain Lance and First Mate B! They were very knowledgeable about the area and where the fish hid. We traveled about an hour into the Bay and within 30 minutes of arriving we hit limit. We had a great time with them, and would definitely recommend them to any angler who wants to have a fun time on the bay, kick back a few, listen to great music, and catch some of the best fish you can in Maryland. It was a pleasure riding on the Rowe Boat.
