Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report

2013 MARYLAND FISHING REPORT

 

Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report: April 5, 2014

We're back for another year! Usually, once a year, we like to go out before the season officially starts for two reasons. The first is to make sure all of our equipment still works, while the second is to see if there are any fish around. Here's what we found today on the Chesapeake Bay! This trophy Chesapeake Bay rockfish was of tournament caliber, and had to have been over 40 pounds. It took three guys to pull it up over the back of the boat after we netted it. Hopefully, we'll be seeing more of these once the season starts. And yes, we put the fish back over.

Chesapeake Bay Striped Bass Fishing Charters For Rockfish!

Today, we went trolling on the Chesapeake Bay for rockfish, and came back with another nice catch! We had a group of four today, and they caught their limit of striped bass from Maryland's Eastern Shore. The Chesapeake Bay striped bass that were caught today ranged between 21 and 32 inches long! Even the smaller rockfish that were landed this morning are fatter than what we were catching earlier this summer. Our book is wide open after this weekend, so if you want to try your hand at some of this fall fishing on one of our Chesapeake Bay fishing charters, give me a call!

Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report: November 18, 2013

Chesapeake Bay Fishing Charters For BIG Rockfish!!

Check out what these guys did on their trip with us today on the Chesapeake Bay! These are 10 guys who landed their legal limit of Chesapeake Bay rockfish while trolling. Contrary to all of the weather reports, the weather was absolutely terrific, with calm seas and lots of sunshine. There were a lot of birds out that led us toward the breaking piles of striped bass. Once we found the fish, it didn't take long for us to load up! There were several times during this Chesapeake Bay fishing charter where we had 4-5 hookups at one time! These Chesapeake Bay striped bass ranged anywhere from 18 to 36 inches in length! That's a lot of fat fillets!

Chesapeake Bay Charter Fishing For Rockfish!!! Big Ones Coming Soon! Book Now!

These guys joined us today on one of our Chesapeake Bay fishing charters for the first time in several years. As you can see, they were successful in landing a good catch. We're back to trolling now on the Chesapeake Bay, as the water has cooled off and the spot have left town. The big ones have yet to arrive, but we expect them to be here shortly. We have plenty of open dates for those who want to get in on the fall trophy striper run! Give me a call!

Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report: August 28, 2013

Chesapeake Bay Charter Fishing For Striped Bass, Rockfish, and More!

We have taken these guys fishing on the Chesapeake Bay for many years, but this is the first time that they brought the kids! It was another great day for everyone, in spite of intermittent rain that cleared up just long enough for these guys to limit out on Chesapeake Bay striped bass! Today brought us a very healthy grade of fish, as most of them were fat, and some were pushing 26 inches in length! You can't beat the excitement of catching one of these fish on a spinning reel! The kids pictured above will never forget this trip! Heck, they even caught most of the fish!

Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report: August 26, 2013

Live-Lining For Chesapeake Bay Striped Bass!

These guys went fishing with us for the very first time on the Chesapeake Bay, and had a heck of a time! It wasn't easy at first, as the bait fishing was kind of slow. Then, we discovered that the fish had moved away from where we had been catching them. However, after catching of couple of Chesapeake Bay striped bass here and there, we finally found the mother lode, causing these folks to limit out on Maryland rockfish very quickly. These fish were of a very healthy grade, and some of them gave these guys quite a fight!

Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report: August 20, 2013

Rockfish On The Chesapeake Bay!

This trio paid us a visit today for the first time, and went home with a nice catch. It was beautiful day, highlighted by calm water and plenty of sunshine. After catching some bait, these guys went live-lining for striped bass. You can see what they caught in the above picture. They had their legal limit in no time. After that, we did some bottom fishing. It was a great day!

Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report: August 17, 2013

Chesapeake Bay Charter Fishing For Rockfish!

This crew joined us for their second Chesapeake Bay fishing trip, and they had a great time, just like the others! These guys had a great time catching bait. Then, we got into a huge school of rockfish out in the Chesapeake Bay. These folks caught their legal limit of striped bass in almost no time! We then rounded out the day with some relaxing bottom fishing. The striper fishing on the Chesapeake Bay right now is as good as you can ask it to be. So, if you're thinking about booking a charter with us, get on the phone now!

Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report: August 16, 2013

Chesapeake Bay Charters For Striped Bass

These guys went fishing with us for the first time today, and as you can see from the above picture, they did very well. Most of these Chesapeake Bay stripers are in the 18 to 24 inch range. Like the other groups we've taken over the last few weeks, the fish were ready for us when we found them. As soon as we started dropping bait into the water, the fish started biting and continued to bite until we had a full legal limit! Everybody was catching them!

Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report: August 9, 2013

Chesapeake Bay Live-Lining For Striped Bass!

These folks went fishing with us today for the first time, and like the groups that went before them, went home with a nice catch! They had a blast catching live spot fish for bait, and then after heading out to go striper fishing on the Chesapeake Bay, catching their limit of rockfish! Some of these fish were of really nice size, with a couple of them clocking in at about 26 inches! These guys had a lot of fun and are already talking about doing it again!

Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report: August 8, 2013

Fishing On The Chesapeake Bay For Rockfish!

This group decided to make us a part of their family vacation while they were in the area. We left the dock at around 10am, got out into the bay, and did some fishing for bait. After doing that for a while, we went live-lining for striped bass. It took us a while to get the fish under our boat, but once we did, those fish bit with a vengeance! It didn't take long after that for this group to limit out on Chesapeake Bay striped bass!

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!!
