DIAMOND FISHING CHARTERS
DIAMOND FISHING CHARTERS
About this listing
Phil Jones (Downeast) originally built in 1997. Powered by a 635HP Cummins Deisel QSM11 engine with a maximum cruising speed of 18 knots.
In 2015, Diamond Fishing Charters was voted a favorite by the locals! They have been fishing Maryland’s Chesapeake Bay since 1992. Most of the fishing season they depart from Anchor Bay East Marina/Hard Yacht Café which is located at 8500 Cove Road, Dundalk Maryland 21222. Docked at the Hard Yacht Cafe is their fishing vessel named “Diamond”.
Diamond Fishing Charters offers 7 hour and 5 hour fishing charters, 2 per day, 7 days a week. Every year they start fishing around the middle of April and finish up the season at the end of December. They specialize in catching Rock Fish - others might know them as “Stripers”. And even after 20+ years of fishing on the Chesapeake Bay, they still find it very enjoyable.
Rock fishing is good from mid April to the end of December, depending on what size fish you want to catch. The trophy sized (35” and above) Rock Fish can be caught from mid April until the end of December. To catch these large fish, we will be trolling 25 rods w/planner boards. We only have about 3 weeks to catch these trophy migratory Rock Fish in the Chesapeake Bay. So, if your ever interested in one of these charters, and your schedule isn’t flexible, try to let us know months in advance. After these trophy fish have left we’ll be catching rock fish of various sizes by trolling and chumming with lighter rods.
Bottom fishing is best from early June to late October and is available every Monday-Thursday. While on one of these charters, you can expect to catch Perch, Spot, Blue Fish, and some Croaker (hard head). These 5 hour bottom fishing charters will cost $450 and we’ll normally have less then a 30 minute boat ride to the fishing grounds. When we are bottom fishing, we will be using spinning reels spoiled with 10 lb test line. Top and bottom rigs baited with cut worm, squid, or shrimp (depending on what’s running) seem to work best for this type of fish.
