Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report

2014 MARYLAND FISHING REPORT

 

Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report: September 8, 2014

Live-Lining For Chesapeake Bay Rockfish!

This crew came to see us from the Washington, DC area, looking to try their hands at some light tackle fishing for rockfish with live bait. As you can see, they did pretty well. The fishing was fast and furious today, as the fish were biting as soon as we arrived at the fishing grounds. Once we anchored up, it didn't take this crew long at all to limit out on stripers. While we did catch a few bluefish, there wasn't as many around today as there was yesterday. This helped us limit out on stripers faster, as we didn't have the blues constantly biting off our hooks!

Still have a bunch of available dates from now through the end of the season! Give me a call at (410) 397-3743 to book your date!

Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report: September 7, 2014

Striped Bass and Bluefish On The Chesapeake Bay!

What you see in the cooler shot above is what happened today, when we had a family group of 14 people onboard that caught almost a full legal limit of Chesapeake Bay rockfish, along with a good number of bluefish! These guys were using light tackle and live bait to do the damage that you see above. It was another fantastic day, as everyone got off the boat happy at the end of the day!

Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report: August 22, 2014

Chesapeake Bay Rockfish!

Check out what this fine trio came away with on our boat today! These guys caught a full legal limit of Chesapeake Bay rockfish, along with a nice catch of bluefish. We headed up the bay to where we caught them on the last trip and the fish were waiting for us. These guys landed their limit with live bait pretty quickly. These fish were all in the 20 to 24 inch range. Then, after that, we saw birds working on pods of breaking fish. So, we put over our trolling lines and caught some bluefish! This was a great way for these kids to finish up their summer vacations!

More Rockfish On Maryland's Chesapeake Bay!

We had our family out fishing with us today. In the above picture are my daughter and her boyfriend. We caught our limit of Chesapeake Bay rockfish in pretty short order with the use of live bait. Not long after that, we did some trolling for bluefish and did pretty well there, as you can see from the picture below.

Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report: August 17, 2014

Rockfish, Bluefish, and Much More on the Chesapeake Bay!

After a few weeks of doing tours on the Chesapeake Bay, we were back to fishing on this Sunday afternoon. Today's crew had a blast, as you can see from the above picture. We started out trolling, catching a mix of rockfish and bluefish. Then, we finished catching our limit of striped bass with the use of live bait. After that, we went on to catch some Norfolk spot to round out the day. These guys went home with a nice catch, and were very happy!

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 Report: July 18, 2014

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 Fishing Report: July 12, 2014

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!

Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report: July 11, 2014

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.

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!!
