Trip Summary

Wow summer sure has flown by. Kids are back to school, football season, cooler nights, and soon cooler days. Well that doesn't stop us! Fall is an excellent fishing season on the Chesapeake. I am just returning from a little RNR trip my self. Now back at it. There are some spanish mackerel and blue fish around. They can be caught trolling or casting and jigging. The rockfish bite is starting to go in a fall pattern. They can be caught shallow in the low light conditions casting lures to structure. As the day goes on they go deeper. They then can be caught jigging or running and gunning chasing breakers. Still some speckled trout around. There are a few here and there in the shallows, but that should pick up again before the water cools to much. Still plenty of spot and perch around for bottom fishing. Every once in a while there are some legal croakers mixed in. I have seen some small flounder also but no keeper size ones yet. That could happen tho. The new Suzuki outboard is amazing. I really love it. As always the boat is on a trailer so we move around a lot when needed. We offer charters from many different locations. Once you book a trip I will custom tailor it to you. Don’t miss out.
