What type of fishing charter is best for me?
What to Bring
You’ll usually be provided with everything you need for a productive day. This includes fishing gear, lures, bait, and your fishing license. Bring along:
- Snacks and drinks. Your captain or guide will usually provide ice and water.
- Weather-appropriate clothing – a warm jacket is recommended regardless of when you visit, as the winds on the Bay can be biting.
- Sea-sickness medication. This a must for newbies, as these waters can get rough.
- Money for tips. It’s likely that you’ll be joined by a first mate, and it’s common to tip 20% here.
When to Visit
Stevensville Fishing Seasons
January is a pretty quiet time of the year for angling opportunities, but you can still start your year off in the right way by attending Kent Island’s annual Fishermen's Fishing Flea Market!
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!
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.
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.
Huge Fluke, trophy-sized Striper, tasty Blue Crab, Black Drum, White Perch...visit in June, when the waters are at their best, and you’ll really be spoiled for choice when it comes to the species on offer!
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.
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 tributaries that surround the Bay as you soak up the sun.
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!
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!
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!
