Fishing the Chesapeake Bay

We depart from several locations throughout the year. This is done to follow fish either entering or leaving the Chesapeake and also target other types of fish in the summer months. We dock in Solomons, Maryland and Virginia Beach, Virginia depending on season.

Solomons is the location where we depart from most of the fishing season, beginning in April and ending in November. Solomons is a great destination to fish out of because it is only about 90 miles from the Ocean. Many species of fish migrate here throughout the spring, summer and fall. Trophy Rockfish, Bluefish, Trout, Croakers, Spot, Flounder, Mackerel and Perch are the fish you can expect to catch from Solomons.

In mid Summer, Lucky Strike fishing Charters fishes the lower Bay and the coastal waters for a variety of exciting action. The fishing opportunities available here are much different than Solomons Maryland. Here we fish for species that only migrate up to the Virginia coast and lower Bay. We fish for species like Cobia, Spadefish, Trigger fish, Flounder and Sharks. Imagine targeting Cobia where 40- 80 lb. Fish and 15-60 minute fights are common. How about fishing for Spade fish in the morning and finishing up with Flounder fishing in the afternoon. The fishing here at that time of the year is awesome where we have caught numerous Virginia citation fish. Wonderful hotel accommodations and great restaurants are the reasons why may anglers charter multiple days here. Call today to book some of the best fishing available.

Lucky Strike Fishing Charters moves the “Taurus” back to Virginia Beach in mid December and stays there until early February. Each year we follow the migrating Rockfish out of the Chesapeake and relocate to Virginia where they winter over. The entire East Coast population of Striped bass and Bluefish winter over between December and February off the coast of Virginia and North Carolina. For that reason the fishing is absolutely awesome. You can’t imagine catching 20-50 lb. Trolling or on light tackle until you have done it. The weather is mild by winter standards with average daily temperatures in the upper 40’s and low 50’s. It may be cool but the fishing is hot, hot, hot! The accommodations are as good as the fishing offering Ocean front rooms under $40/night, yes under $40/night for a fisherman’s rate. Call early to book your trip here because available days go quickly as you can imagine.
