Charter Fishing in Maryland

Charter fishing in Maryland centers around the Chesapeake Bay and its many in-flowing rivers, streams and tributaries. And yes, Maryland has some great offshore sportfishing out of the Eastern Shore from cities like Ocean City but its the Bay that the majority of anglers flock to for a shot at the many species that roam these waters. Anglers wouldn’t be surprised to know that much of the charter fishing in Maryland revolves around the state fish, the Rockfish. From the great striper fishing to crabbing for world known Chesapeake Bay blue crabs Maryland is truly a sportsman’s paradise.

Maryland Fishing Guides

During the summer and fall months fishing in the in the Chesapeake Bay revolves around striper, flounder, and trout so the Maryland fishing guides will usually target these fish as this is when they are most plentiful. The party boats or head boats will go after these fish too but you can add spot, croaker, and perch to the species catch list. There are many other species in the region but the ones mentioned are the main fish that professional Maryland fishing guides target the most.

There are also more sportfish like drum and cobia that the MD guides will fish for but for the best action, especially during the fall months are the striper aka rockfish that will get most anglers attention whether they are private recreational anglers or professional Maryland fishing guides for hire.
