Join Captain Jake DellaRose aboard the "Rockin N Rowan" and get ready to cast your line for prized Striped Bass in the Chesapeake Bay! Capt. Jake has been fishing these waters since he was a child. With plenty of knowledge to share, he can’t wait to show you a good time while putting fish in the box.

The Rockin N Rowan is an attractive 32’ Rampage express cruiser, powered by twin Volvo diesel engines. She’s capable of accommodating up to 6 guests, so why not bring along the whole family or your best angling buddies?

She’s fully equipped with top-of-the-line navigational and safety gear, meaning you’ll be treated to a secure and comfortable journey to the bay’s hotspots. Inside, she features a toilet, as well as TV, so you can even combine fishing for Stripers with catching an important game!

Capt. Jake provides top of the line fishing equipment, primarily using Penn reels with 40 lb test line for the ultimate Striped Bass and Bluefish fishing experience. Stripers fight hard, and this fishing gear will make sure that you’re up to the challenge of reeling ‘em in!

Your captain’s preferred technique is trolling, which he does with planer boards and up to 16 rods, meaning he can have over 30 bait in the water at a time. Safe to say, it’s rare for him to return to the dock without a box full of Striper to show off.

Each trip includes top-quality rods and reels, as well as artificial bait. Live bait is available at an additional cost. Capt. Jake will make sure your entire fishing group is covered with a valid license, so all you need to do is come aboard Rockin N Rowan and cast off on the Striper-chasing adventure of your dreams!

I have been chasing Stripers around the Upper and Middle Chesapeake Bay since the State reopened the Fishery. Though I was a young boy then I learned to respect the bay and its fishery. To this day I still get just as excited to hear the run of the drags, the bend of the rod, and to see fish on the deck of the boat. I’m committed to showing my clients a good time as well as putting fish in the box. I grew up on the water and fished all the time as a child until I became an adult. Now I want to get others out fishing and enjoy the day.
