Spring (May 1 thru May 15)

Chesapeake Bay Spring Trophy Rockfish season is May 1 thru May 15. These are some of the biggest fish (up to 60 lbs) of the year.
Book early to ensure your chance at a lifetime Trophy Rockfish (Striped Bass)!
The 2 per person Rockfish season starts May 16th!

Summer (June, July, August, September)

Summer usually offers the most diverse action of the year. All the species in the Bay are here and biting. Once the summer weather hits we'll be fishing for a mix of Rockfish (Striped Bass), Bluefish, Spanish Mackerel, Spot and maybe hook a Red Drum or Cobia! These fish join the Rockfish in our area by late June and become more plentiful as the summer progresses.  Come try a day of summertime fishing, it's a great way to spend a summer day with family and friends.  This is normally a great time to bring the kids fishing!

Fall (Mid September, October, November)

Mixed catches of Rockfish, Spanish Mackerel and Bluefish are common in the early fall.  The Bluefish and Spanish Mackerel will leave the area by mid Ocotber.  Late October and November typically offer great Rockfishing (Striped Bass) as these fish tend to school up for the winter.

Send Capt. Wally an email and ask what's biting when you want to come.  captainwally@fishstrikezone.com
