Areas fished and methods used

Since we are located in one of the most productive areas of the Chesapeake, we typically run for less than 45 minutes in order to find fish. 

During the spring (4/16-5/15) Trophy Striped Bass season (Rockfish) we'll be departing from Solomon's, MD and fishing the Gas Docks, Targets, and other nearby areas. 

In the summer and fall (5/16-11/01) we'll be departing from Hard Yacht Cafe, Dundalk, MD and fishing between the Bay Bridge and Pooles Island.

From November 1st to December 15th we will be departing from Solomon's Island, MD.

We specialize in Striped Bass (rock fish) fishing either trolling, live lining, or chumming. Light tackle is available. We also cast, jig and bottom fish when appropriate.
