Fishing in Assawoman Bay

The shallow lagoon that straddles the Maryland-Delaware border is one of the East Coast’s best-kept secrets. Much smaller than the Delaware or Chesapeake Bays, the Assawoman Bay is often overlooked by anglers looking to land a trophy catch, but it punches well above its weight. Come aboard an Assawoman Bay fishing charter and get the best of the East, without worrying about the crowds!
 
The range of fish you’ll find in these rich waters is unrivaled almost anywhere along the Atlantic Coast. Whenever you come, you’re sure to find something exciting or delicious biting at the end of your line. Bottom fishing is the key to success here, as you go after beauties such as Seabass, Flounder, Seatrout, Redfish, Weakfish, Bluefish, Sheepshead, and Tautog.
 
With most charters based out of Ocean City, you can also choose to use the Assawoman Bay as a base for some offshore adventures. Go trolling nearshore for Mackerel, or hit the deep waters further out for a big game adventure against Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, and Wahoo. 
 
There’s really something for everyone on an Assawoman Bay fishing adventure. Trips as short as three hours cater to beginners looking to learn the ropes, while a full-day adventure will give experienced anglers the thrill they’re looking for. You can even come aboard at night and test your skills like never before. So choose the trip that suits you and get your fish on!

Assawoman Bay Fishing Seasons

Most captains take their boats out of the water for some maintenance during the winter months, so you’ll be hard-pressed to find a charter. Take this opportunity to discover the beauty of the coastline instead.
With little in the way of fishing action, the towns around the Assawoman Bay are largely deserted. This means you can do the tourist stuff in peace, so why not hit Ocean City’s boardwalk?
It’s finally time to get back on the water, with some delicious creatures starting to make their way to the bay. Come and target Tautog and Flounder and head home with plenty of fish to fill the freezer.
You’ll sense that there’s something a-changing come April, as spring brings with it new birth in the water as well as on dry land. Keep an eye out for scores of Flounder, Bluefish, and Tautog for a tasty treat.
While some big game creatures may be tempting you offshore, the inshore fishing has never been better, either. Seabass and Striped Bass add to the incredible list of fish to target in the shallows.
Sharks and Tuna populate the offshore waters as summer kicks in, giving you the chance of an offshore adventure like never before, but there’s still plenty of action inshore for beginners and pros alike.
Ocean City comes alive with its annual Tuna tournament, giving you a hint of what the flavor of the month is in June. Head to the deep waters and target Bluefin or Yellowfin Tuna for a fight like never before.
It’s summer vacation, so why not make the most of it and bring your kids aboard for a thrilling fishing adventure? Hit the shallows to target some delicious fish and get them hooked on this fun-filled sport.
With everyone back in school or work, the numbers of tourists die down, but the great weather lasts long into fall. Come aboard and extend your summer with a trip to sea in Assawoman Bay.
There’s only one fish on everyone’s mind as fall takes over the East Coast. Target delicious, monster Seabass in the shallow waters of the bay and you’re sure to head home with a just reward.
The deep waters may be a bit choppy, so you’ll be glad to know that the inshore waters are brimming with exciting and delicious fish. Target Flounder, Seabass, Tautog, and more for a thrilling adventure.
End the year in style with an exciting fishing trip to the bay. Test out your bottom fishing skills against Rockfish and Seabass and head home with a treat for the whole family to enjoy over the holidays!
