Top Fishing Charters in Stevensville


Located on Kent Island in the heart of the Upper Chesapeake Bay, Stevensville offers access to some of the East Coast’s best angling opportunities. Come fishing in Stevensville and see for yourself! You could hit up the rivers, the Chesapeake Bay Bridge and its surrounding nutrients, or the open waters of the bay, as you go after a range of prized and delicious fish.
 
The star of the show is Striped Bass – or Rockfish, as it’s known locally. These big, strong, and delicious creatures are an all-round fish, and the bridge attracts them in their hundreds. There’s also a worthy supporting cast behind this celebrity. Flounder, Trout, Bluefish, Redfish, Black Seabass, Tautog, and Mackerel are all on the cards when you cast your line here.
 
Speaking of casting your line, there are plenty of options for you to do so. Stevensville fishing charters offer a range of trips starting from a couple of hours all the way up to over 10 hours on the water. Beginners and families can take advantage of shorter excursions, with longer voyages reserved for pros to make the most of this productive fishery.
 
With so many fish on offer, you’ll be pleased to know that there’s never a bad time to come. However, you may want to stick to the rivers in winter. Trophy Rockfish season takes place in spring, with “Rocktober” also giving you a chance of landing a monster in fall. Meanwhile, summer is your best bet for a mixed bag.
 

Rules & Regulations

All Stevensville fishing charters come with Maryland saltwater licenses for everyone on board. You will, however, need to register at the state’s Saltwater Angler Registry. The good news is you can do so for free online. For all other rules and regulations, your professional guide will make sure you’re sticking to the law.

January

January is a pretty quiet time of the year for fishing, but you can still start your year off in style by attending Kent Island’s annual Fishermen's Fishing Flea Market. The best angling takes place along the rivers.

February

The waters of the bay tend to remain cold and not very fish-friendly throughout February, allowing plenty of opportunity for charters to undergo maintenance in preparation for high season!

March

As the waters start to heat up, you’ll find the first few charters heading back into the water and out onto the Bay to target the first Fluke of spring. Take advantage of the early season to warm up for the serious action!

April

Get ready to set your traps, fix your lures, and head out onto the bay for the start of the season! Blue Crab and Striped Bass are plentiful, with many trophy-sized Stripers making an appearance.

May
The hotter the water, the better the bite – and usually, the Striper are biting hard when May rolls around! They’re joined by the first Bluefish of the season, so get ready for plenty of action.
 
June

Huge Fluke, trophy-sized Striper, tasty Blue Crab, Black Drum, and White Perch visit in June. This is when the waters are at their best, and you’ll really be spoiled for choice when it comes to the species on offer!

July

The bay usually reaches maximum productivity in July, with huge Striper, Black Drum, White Perch, and doormat Fluke all on offer just minutes from the shoreline. Book early yo avoid disappointment!

August

Families looking to take advantage of their summer vacation should visit now! Set traps for the vast amounts of Blue Crab on offer, hook tasty Striper, and explore the creeks and rivers as you soak up the sun.

September

Explore the bay for masses of Bluefish, Striped Bass, Fluke, and more, and then head over to nearby Annapolis to sample the offerings of the annual Maryland Seafood Festival!

October

Stevensville hosts the annual Chesapeake Bay Kayak Anglers Fishing Tournament, so watch these masters show off their skills, and learn a tip or two for hooking your own Striped Bass or Bluefish!

November
As the season starts to cool down, head out to the bay and take advantage of the winter Striper regulations – hook one measuring 19 inches or more, and you can take it home for a tasty treat.
 
December

December signals the end of the fishing season in Stevensville, but don’t worry – Striped Bass will still be biting until the middle of the month! Head out with one of the hardy captains or cast from shore.
