2016 Fishing Season is almost here!

The 2016 trophy rockfish season will open on April 16 this year. We still have a few open dates for the trophy season. The last few years we have had pretty decent fishing from the end of May till mid June for the school size rockfish. Hopefully this year will be the same. Get in touch with us to set up a trophy trip or a trip for the school size fish.

Trophy Rockfish Starts April 20th

Sorry for a lack of posts but we were pretty busy fishing and hunting this past fall. There was a decent bite on school size rockfish until the season went out December 31. The trophy fish were few and far between this fall. Ever since then the ice has kept us from getting in on the blue cats but hopefully the next few weeks will warm up and we can get a trip or two in for them. Even though it has not been a fishing friendly winter, the trophy rockfish season is right around the corner. We still have a few prime dates left. Give me a call at 301-904-7922 to book a trip.

This weeks report!


The fishing has been pretty consistent for the last few weeks. Lots of perch, bluefish, and red drum in the shallow water early and late. Bluefish, Spanish mackerel, and small rock schooling on the edges chasing bait with some big red drum mixed in sometimes. Bottom fishing for croaker, spot, king whiting, and trout has been good as well. Late summer in Southern Maryland is a great time to fish!
