Booking a charter boat for a full or half day on the Chesapeake Bay is the perfect way to clear your mind and concentrate on having fun! Charter boat crews provide everything you need – equipment, licenses, ice, bait, tackle and a great water view. They prepare the boat and equipment, rig the bait and navigate for you – all you need to think about is relaxing, enjoying time out on the water and catching some fish!

Fishing seasons on the Chesapeake Bay (species migrations and availability vary from year to year depending on weather and other conditions):

  • Striped Bass (Rockfish) regular season runs May through mid-December, closing for a two week period in July in 2021.
  • Black Drum regular season late runs May to early June
  • Spot, white perch, sea trout and whiting regular season runs mid-June through early October
  • Spanish mackerel and bluefish regular season runs late July to late September/early October

Depending on the time of year, charter boat fishing techniques include trolling, cut-bait, chumming, live bait, jigging and bottom fishing.

What to bring on a charter boat trip:

  • Packed lunch and beverages (or ask about catered lunches)
  • Camera
  • Sunscreen and sunglasses, or rain gear if it looks like rain
  • A cooler to take your catch home in

*You must obtain correct licensing documents to fish and crab on your own in Maryland.
