Nice striper caught aboard a Baltimore fishing charter.

There are a great many sportfishing and charter fishing hotspots throughout the US coastal regions but from an anglers point of view there aren't many regions that quite compare to Chesapeake Bay charter fishing. With a large population of marine life the Chesapeake Bay is a seafood lovers and saltwater sportsmans paradise.

The massive Chesapeake Bay saltwater basin is at its widest point is near 35 miles wide at the mouth of the Potomac in Maryland and is over 200 miles long extending all the way from Virginia Beach, Virginia to Baltimore, Maryland. The Upper Chesapeake Bay near Baltimore has some fertile fishing grounds and is a frequent stop for anglers on a Chesapeake Bay charter fishing vacation. In fact the Baltimore fishing charters and the Chesapeake Bay are major tourist draws for the state.

More than 350 different species of finfish can be found in the Chesapeake Bay. Some of the more well known species are permanent residents, while others migrate seasonally. Depending on their feeding habits and spawning requirements, many fish move between shallow and deep water or between freshwater and saltwater throughout the year. Not all of these species are ever targeted by the fishing charters of the region though. In fact only a handfull of species are sought out by anglers fishing the Chesapeake Bay, whether they be a private angler or on a local Baltimore fishing boat charter.

The Upper Chesapeake Bay area and Baltimore region is known for great fishing, delicious seafood, and numerous professional fishing charters and guides. Baltimore fishing charters in this region of the Bay will offer many different types and styles of fishing. Usually the season will determine what fish the Captain will target but as we have said, striper fishing will probably be first on the list if the season in the spring when trophy striper season opens. If striper isn't your favorite type of fish to catch then there's also plenty of bottom fishing for croaker and flounder during the summer months.

Baltimore fishing charters range from smaller sized vessels that may carry just a couple anglers to larger boats of over 40' long than can accommodate much larger parties. Boats like the Emma Marie for instance will carry a party of six but should you need more room for more anglers we can make acommodations for more anglers. A Baltimore charter boat like the Emma Marie is the ideal boat for fishing the Upper Chesapeake Bay. Especially if you are trolling for trophy striper as you have plenty of room to fish and plenty of room to do battle with a 50 pound rockfish.
