2014 MARYLAND FISHING REPORT

 

Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report: July 19, 2014

Fishing For Rockfish On The Chesapeake Bay!

These guys pictured here have been fishing on the Chesapeake Bay with us for many years now. They came down from Pennsylvania this weekend to try their luck with some striper fishing with live bait. We headed straight to the fishing grounds on the bay, and the fish were biting as soon as we started dropping lines! It didn't take long at all for this crew to land its legal limit. These fish ranged between 18 and 24 inches in length. After we caught our legal limit of stripers, we headed off to replenish our bait reserve!

Chesapeake Bay Fishing Charters For Rockfish!

Here, we have a group of California firefighters who were in town for the weekend, in search of a good time. Well, they got one today! We went live-lining on the Chesapeake Bay for rockfish, and look at what they came away with! The fishing was a bit slow starting out and we had to reposition the boat a few times, but once we got situated and the tide slacked up a little bit, the fish started to bite. Once they started to bite, it didn't take long for this crew to catch a legal limit of striped bass!

Chesapeake Bay Striped Bass Fishing From Maryland's Eastern Shore!

These guys went fishing with us on a Chesapeake Bay charter fishing excursion this afternoon, and as you can see, it turned out to be very successful! We left the dock at around 1:00 that afternoon, and started off by bottom fishing for bait. After they caught a significant quantity of bait, we went out to the striped bass fishing grounds on the Chesapeake Bay, in search of some rockfish. It was a little bit slow starting out, as we had to contend with wind that was against the current, causing the boat to swing back and forth on its anchor. However, once the current slacked up a bit, the fish started to bite. Once this happened, it didn't take long at all for this crew to limit out. It was a fantastic day for this group, who are already making plans to fish with us again in the fall!

Maryland Striper Fishing On The Chesapeake Bay!

We took these guys out fishing on this fine Friday afternoon, and just look at what they came away with! After spending an hour or so bottom fishing for live bait, we headed out to the fishing grounds. Fortunately, we had a bunch of striped bass that were biting as soon as we arrived. Once we started putting out lines, the fish started to bite! These guys landed their legal limit in very short order. These fish all ranged between 18 and 26 inches in length.

Fishing On The Chesapeake Bay For Rockfish!

Check out this close-up photo of 8-year old Ethan J. Schulze of Catonsville, MD. He landed this whopper of a striped bass with a combination of live bait and light tackle! He fought it for some time, but he showed that fish who was boss!

I have plenty of available dates later on this summer and into the fall, if you want to try your hand at some of this light tackle striped bass fishing! Book your very own fishing charter on the Chesapeake Bay by giving me a call today!

Live-Lining For Chesapeake Bay Rockfish!

After taking about a week off from fishing, we were back out on the Chesapeake Bay this afternoon, catching Chesapeake Bay striped bass with live bait, also known as live-lining for rockfish. It was a beautiful day, with light winds. We left the dock at around 1pm and headed out to the fishing grounds. Once we got there, the fish were already biting. It didn't take long for this group of seven to limit out on rockfish. These fish ranged between 18 and 26 inches long. It was a fantastic day for a group of guys who have been fishing with us for several years now.

Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report: July 2, 2014

Chesapeake Bay Lighthouse Cruises!

While we spend most of our time on the Chesapeake Bay fishing, there are other things that we do every now and then. These things include Chesapeake Bay lighthouse cruises! You see, there are many lighthouses on the Chesapeake Bay, including six of them that are pretty close to us. I took this fine group of folks out to see these lighthouses and enjoy lunch on Smith Island! They learned a lot, enjoyed a beautiful day on the bay, and had a nice meal! And yes, the picture that you see is the 'after' picture! These guys had a really good time.

I have two other lighthouse cruises scheduled for August 9 and August 30, both of which are on Saturdays. There is still plenty of room on both cruises, so if you want to reserve your spot, give me a call or drop me a line!

Live-Lining For Rockfish On The Chesapeake Bay!

These guys started off the month of July with a bang! Just look at the rockfish that these folks came away with. They fished with us for the first time today, as part of their annual family get-together. I don't think they regretted that decision! Some of the Chesapeake Bay rockfish that they caught today were pushing 30 inches in length. They caught their legal limit of striped bass in no time, with the use of live bait! It was definitely something the kids in this picture won't soon forget! We're glad that we could be a part of their annual family celebration!

Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report: June 30, 2014

A Full Legal Limit Of Maryland Rockfish On The Chesapeake Bay!

Here is another group of new customers that came away very happy after a great day on the Chesapeake Bay! They came to see us from Hagerstown, MD so that they could see what it's like to fish on the bay. Based on the above picture, I think they now know! Once the current slacked up a bit, this crew started catching rockfish one after the other! There was one point during the trip, where we had several hook-ups at the same time! Some of these fish were BIG, at over 30 inches in length! It was a great time on the bay, something the young folks in this picture won't forget any time soon!

Chesapeake Bay Fishing For Rockfish, Live-Lining

After a couple of days off, we were back to live-lining on the Chesapeake Bay for rockfish. It was a great day, as you can see from the above picture. After doing some bottom fishing for spot to use for bait, we headed out into the Chesapeake Bay in search of some striped bass. This was easier than we thought it would be, as not only did we find them, but they were also feeding right then! Within about 45 minutes, this crew landed their legal limit of Chesapeake Bay rockfish by live-lining! These fish ranged between 20 and 28 inches, a very good grade. After that, we went back to bottom fishing, and caught this gem!

Catching Black Drum On The Chesapeake Bay!

This was a 10-pound black drum, our first black drum of the season. It put up a good fight. We initially thought that it was a ray. We were pleasantly surprised!

Capt. Dave Schauber is a native to Maryland's Eastern Shore. He has fished on the Chesapeake Bay his entire life. From the late 1970s to the late 1990s, he operated sawmills for a living. After relocating to Dorchester County in 1981 to operate another sawmill, he quickly became known in the community as simply "The Sawyer", and is still referred to by that title to this day. It is often confused with his last name. This is the origin of the business name, and hence the boat name. After moving to Dorchester County, he fished the lower and middle Chesapeake Bay, in addition to the Honga River, Fishing Bay, and other local bodies of water for years. He started out with small, center-console boats and worked his way up to eventually owning a 42-foot Bay-built vessel. He obtained his Captain's License in 1992, and began to run fishing charters on the weekends and his days off. After building his business for several years, he made the decision to leave the sawmill and begin running charters full time in 1999. His business continued to grow, leading to the construction of our new boat in 2002.

Another great day of fishing on the Chesapeake Bay!!
