Fishing Seasons

April - Mid May "Trophy Season"

Trophy Season is Capt Trey's favorite time of year. It is the beginning of the fishing season and the Big fish are out and moving. We will be targeting Trophy Striped Bass by trolling with our spread of 28 rods in order to find the BIG ONES!
May - Mid June

This is the time when the big trophy striped bass start transitioning into the "schoolies" which are the smaller fish. We will be targeting bigger fish but smaller fish will be caught, luckily our size limit and daily limit changes into 2 fish per person.
June - September "Bottom Fishing"

We offer bottom fishing trips at night starting in June targeting Big Croakers and Spot, by using bottom rigs and bait.
June- October "Livelining"
 
We will be using Live Spot and light tackle rods in order to catch Striped Bass, and Bluefish. This is a fun time there is alot of action going on and catching Striped Bass on light tackle is a BLAST!
October-December

The season is winding down and the fish are on the move, but the fish feed like CRAZY! Alot of the Mid- grade Striped Bass are being caught but there are some BIG Stripers roaming around the Chesapeake Bay!
