Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report

2016 MARYLAND FISHING REPORT

 

Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report: May 12, 2016

BIG Chesapeake Bay Striped Bass Caught From Maryland's Eastern Shore! Sawyer Chesapeake Bay Fishing Charters

Over the past few days, the fishing action on the Chesapeake Bay has been pretty slow, with catches averaging about 2-3 rockfish per trip, with it taking all day to catch that. Well, today was quite a departure from that! These four guys landed their legal limit of trophy Chesapeake Bay striped bass by 7am this morning! We caught three of these BIG fish before we could even get all of our lines out! Unlike the past few days, the fish were waiting for us today! Hopefully, this action on the Chesapeake Bay will continue! Right now, we are open for both Saturday and Sunday this weekend. If you have a group that wants to go this weekend, give us a call at (410) 397-3743!

Fishing On The Chesapeake Bay For Trophy Striped Bass! - Sawyer Chesapeake Bay Fishing Charters

Here is another group of guys that have been fishing with us for a long time. They've been fishing on the Chesapeake Bay with us since 2008, and when it comes to trolling for rockfish, they generally have a lot of luck. Today was no different! While the fishing wasn't as red-hot as it was yesterday, it was still one heck of a day for these guys! Instead of catching numerous fish at one time like yesterday, we caught one at a time throughout the day until this group of six limited out. That's the way it goes sometimes! Hopefully, this good Chesapeake Bay fishing action will keep up!

A Fast Limit Of Chesapeake Bay Trophy Striped Bass! Sawyer Chesapeake Bay Fishing Charters

Last night, we almost cancelled this trip due to a weather report that called for over two inches of rain between last night and today! Thank goodness we didn't do that! The rain never happened this morning, and the fishing was wide open! We started catching fish before we could finish getting our lines out! By 8am, we had caught four BIG Chesapeake Bay rockfish to round out a full legal limit for the day! All of these fish were at least 40 inches long, with the biggest coming in at 43 inches! While we were trying to pull our lines up, we landed five more that had to be thrown back. These guys have been fishing on the Chesapeake Bay with us for many years now, and always seem to have a lot of luck. What an amazing day on the Chesapeake Bay!

Another Nice Day Of Fishing On The Chesapeake Bay!

Today, a longtime customer decided to take some of his family fishing on the Chesapeake Bay. It turned out to be a great decision! All four of them went home with BIG Chesapeake Bay rockfish! Even though it rained most of the time and it was foggy for most of the morning, the fish were not deterred, as these guys landed a legal limit. One of the guys in the group said that it was the first rockfish that he had ever caught! Hopefully, it won't be his last!

Four BIG Chesapeake Bay Rockfish From Maryland's Eastern Shore!

The fishing was a bit challenging today due to an increase in boat traffic from an annual fishing tournament that was held this weekend. However, that did not stop this crew from bringing home four monster Chesapeake Bay striped bass! All of these fish were more than 40 inches long! It turned out to be a great day on the water!

A Fine Catch Of Maryland Rockfish From The Chesapeake Bay! Sawyer Chesapeake Bay Striped Bass Fishing Charters

Here, we have a crew that came to see us for the first time today, and they did not go home empty-handed! We left Hoopers Island bright and early, and then proceeded to land these four beautiful rockfish before heading in for the day! This was their first time seeing us, and hopefully will be the first of several Chesapeake Bay fishing charters that we see these guys on!

Full Limit Of Chesapeake Bay Striped Bass!

It was a tremendous action-packed day of Chesapeake Bay fishing today! One of the guys in this group had been fishing with us for many years with another group. He decided to form his own group and come see us this year. What a great decision it turned out to be! These guys had their limit of trophy Maryland rockfish by 8am! The bite was fast and furious. These fish were also huge! One guy in the group didn't want to pose with his fish. Said he was tired from reeling it in!

Another Legal Limit Of Chesapeake Bay Striped Bass! Sawyer Chesapeake Bay Fishing Charters

Here is the result of our afternoon trip today! It was more of the same! This is the same group of guys that fished with us yesterday. The bite was again fast and furious, as these guys landed their limit of trophy Maryland rockfish quickly! What a day to be on the water!

Another Catch Of BIG Rockfish On The Bay - Sawyer Chesapeake Bay Fishing Charters

This may have been our best day of fishing for rockfish yet this season! We left the dock bright and early, and even though it was raining, the fish didn't seem to care! These guys caught their limit before we could even get all of our lines out! It was a fantastic day! They even caught a few big fish that had to be thrown back! Now, they're talking about booking a couple of fishing charters with us this fall!

Another Big Day Of Fishing On The Chesapeake Bay! Sawyer Chesapeake Bay Fishing Charters

These guys have been fishing with us for well over 15 years! What you see in the above picture is part of the reason why! We left the dock at 1pm, started catching fish at 3pm, and had our limit of monster rockfish by 4pm! It doesn't get any better than that! We would see huge piles of bait fish on our fish finder, and have three rods go down at the same time! Quite a bit of fun for these guys!

90 Year-Old Man Reels In Whopper Striped Bass!

Here, we see 90 year-old John Bilic of Collingswood, New Jersey, with his monster trophy striped bass! This was the biggest fish of the day and he caught it! No, this is not the biggest fish that he caught, but it ranks among them! Congratulations, John!

BIG Rockfish On The Chesapeake Bay! Sawyer Chesapeake Bay Fishing Charters

It was another really good day of Chesapeake Bay fishing action! We caught three huge Maryland rockfish within the first hour or so of getting our lines out. Then, we hit a lull and never had another bite for at least 2 hours. After that, we found a honey hole and finished out our limit for the day in about a half hour! All of these fish were 40 inches in length or more! The young man in the picture below caught a huge 48-incher that weighed over 40 pounds! What a day to be on the bay!

Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report: April 24, 2016

These three guys have been fishing for Chesapeake Bay rockfish with us for several years now. They walked away today with a really nice catch. We nailed two right away upon reaching the fishing grounds and then rounded out our full limit a couple of hours later. Some great fish in this picture!

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.
