Annapolis Fishing Charters

Annapolis sits on the famous Chesapeake Bay, a unique fishery that has a diversity of species and environments found nowhere else. People often separate the Bay into the Upper, Middle, and Lower Chesapeake Bay areas but you can divide this even further if you include the rivers and tributaries that feed into it. The Chesapeake Bay is an angler’s paradise with more spots to catch a variety of fish species than anywhere else.

If you love catching monster bull redfish or cobia Chesapeake bay needs to be on your bucket list. The Chesapeake Bay is a gorgeous and inspiring place to visit that happens to have incredible fishing opportunities.

Annapolis Inshore Charters

While the Chesapeake Bay is home to many species including bluefish, redfish, speckled trout, perch, and fluke, it is the striped bass(in the area commonly called rockfish) that takes the cake as the signature fish of the Bay. It is a state fish of both Maryland and Virginia because of its popularity among anglers for sport and food.

Trolling the Chesapeake Bay for rockfish is a great way for any angler to spend their day. Head out with an umbrella lure in the upper Bay during the May trophy season for your chance to land a beast. October (or Rocktober) is when the main season is firing on all cylinders and the fish go into a feeding frenzy when it starts to get colder. If trolling isn’t for you, rockfish arent too picky - you can fish with spoons as well, and many locals swear by nightcrawlers and bloodworms.
