According to customer reviews, Chasin’ Dreams Sportfishing, Rockin N Rowan, and Baltimore's Finest Charters are some of the most popular fishing charters in Baltimore, Maryland. Full list of top fishing charters in Baltimore.

Chasin’ Dreams Sportfishing, Rockin N Rowan, and Baltimore's Finest Charters all received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Baltimore.

The most popular fish species you can target are Striped Bass, White Perch, and Bluefish. Top fishing techniques include light tackle, jigging, and trolling. Inshore fishing, river fishing, and nearshore fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

150 miles into the Chesapeake Bay, the bustling town of Baltimore is a hub for angling action. From the waterfront park, to inshore rivers, and out to the bay itself, there’s no end to the fishing grounds you can explore. The best way of exploring them all is on a Baltimore fishing charter. Follow a professional guide on the way to success, as you go after some truly prized species.
 
Some of the creatures here will blow your mind. The East Coast favorite, Striped Bass – or Rockfish, as it’s known here – is everywhere. There’s also plenty of delicious Flounder, Tautog, Black Seabass, Trout, and Crab on offer. Bluefish, Redfish, Black Drum, and Sharks are also available for you to test your skills, so there’s something for all kinds of anglers.
 
And that’s reflected in the trips on offer. Beginners and families can take advantage of half day trips to test the waters. These are also a great way for any experienced angler to get their fix. Full day trips, however, will give you the best chance of filling the boat. Head boats are also an option for individual anglers or those on a budget, so take your pick!
 
While fishing is possible 365-days a year, you’ll want to beware of the weather. The fish can flee the Chesapeake Bay when it rains, so winter tends to see better action in the rivers. Peak season is spring through fall, when Rockfish and all Maryland’s favorite fish come out to play. Head down to one of the numerous marinas on the Patapsco and away you go.

 

Rules & Regulations

Baltimore fishing charters come with licenses covered for all those on board. All you’ll need to do is sign up for free to the Maryland Saltwater Angler Registry. For all other rules, such as size and bag limits, your professional captain will keep you in check.

January

The Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Parade celebrates one of the country’s most influential civil rights campaigners in January. If you laugh in the face of winter, you can also enjoy the Polar Bear Plunge this time of year.

February

If you missed the Polar Bear Plunge but still want to get cold for a good cause, join Cupid’s Undie Run! This charity event sees runners sprint through town in nothing but their underwear.

March

Black Seabass is open for harvest in March and anglers take to the water in droves to catch this delicious fish. Tautog are also biting hard this time of year, making for some great food fishing.

April

Blue Crab and Striped Bass open for harvest in April, making it one of the most productive times to fish the Chesapeake Bay. Don’t be a fool, get out there and bag yourself some tasty fish!

May

The list of delicious fish just keeps getting longer as the weather warms up. Speckled Trout, Flounder, Tautog, Black Seabass, Crab, Stripers, Sheepshead, and Croakers are all in season!

June

River anglers have been enjoying catch and release fishing for Smallmouth and Largemouth Bass all spring, but from June on you can finally keep this freshwater delicacy.

August

The heat of summer just makes the fish bite harder here in the Chesapeake Bay. Bag yourself some tasty Flounder and Crab, or battle monster Striped Bass for the perfect trophy or a great meal.

September

People say you shouldn’t eat Crab after summer. Don’t listen to them – crabbing is great in September! Pull in some tasty Rockfish before running your trotline and heading home with a real feast.

October

Baltimore Free Fall welcomes you to enjoy over 300 arts and cultural events for free. The festival spans most of the month, and there’s always something great to check out.

We had such an amazing time fishing with Cpt Chuck! He was super knowledgeable, helpful, and very friendly. We caught 60 fish between the two of us - nearly all stripers with a few catfish. We will definitely be doing it again. Such an enjoyable time!

The morning started off slow but Capt. Dave kept after it and put on on some great rock fish eventually. It was definitely worth the 3.5 hr drive we had getting here and wouldn’t hesitate doing it again. My family thanks you for a great morning on the bay!

Today was simply excellent. This was a Father’s Day gift to the dads from our wives and it was perfect. The captain was excellent, helpful, funny, and made us feel at home on his boat. We will be doing this again in the future.

We caught lots of perch, sometimes 2 per cast. Captain Dave put us right on them. Including the throw backs, the 3 of us probably landed close to 100 in not more than 90 minutes. Then we went looking for a trolling experienced and found some blues. Not as many but a different experience. The boat is very clean, and Dave made us feel very at home. A great aftenoon on the water!

Captain Jake worked and got us on the fish. We caught our limit and had a blast. Equipment was top notch and Captain Jake knows the bay and gets you in the right place. He cleaned our catch and we left with beautiful Rock fillets. Highly recommend this boat and Captain Jake. We'll be back again.

Captain David was friendly and knowledgeable. He put us on the fish and I think he got a good workout unhooking all the fish we caught. We had such a great time. Highly recommend him. We will be going out with him again soon!

This was a fantastic experience for my son and I. Captain Dave knew exactly where to take us to see action. I lost count just how many white perch we reeled in. Then he relocated us to just the right spot to land some good size catfish and a surprise rock bass. Captain Dave was a outgoing, personable, and knowledgeable charter boat Captain. I highly recommend him to any group looking to enjoy a day on the water, just be prepared to catch some fish because he knows just where to find them.

We went on this trip hoping to catch a lot of fish and did just that. Not only did the captain know the best spots to go to catch fish, but with beginner fishermen - one being a 13yr- he took the time to teach them how to cast properly and helped bait the hooks. I can't wait until we can plan our next trip. 10/10 would recommend it!

This was the 1st time my son has been on a charter fishing trip. We had a great time and caught our limit. Capt. David knew where to find the fish and wanted to make sure we enjoyed our trip. It was a great father and son experience. We look forward to chartering with him again.

I brought my 12 year old son and his 2 best friends on a 1/2 day fishing trip with captain David. He taught the boys proper techniques for fishing and they had a great time. Definitely will book another fishing trip with captain David.
