Chesapeake Bay Fishing Charters - A Great Idea for Family Reunions!

Do you have a family reunion coming up and are looking for something to do? Do like this crew and join us for a Chesapeake Bay fishing charter, fishing for rockfish with light tackle and live bait! These folks joined us bright and early this morning, and had no trouble limiting out on rockfish with live spot for bait! If you enjoy "live-lining," well, here you go! In addition to a limit of stripers, they also caught a few bluefish, and did some bottom fishing. Another fantastic day of fishing on the Chesapeake Bay!

Awesome Day of Striper Fishing on the Chesapeake!

After a few weeks of tour bookings, we were back at Taylors Island, fishing for striped bass. This family was in town today from Illinois, and decided to add a Chesapeake Bay charter fishing experience to their time in the area. We left the dock bright and early, and got out to the fishing grounds, but the fishing was really slow. We ended up going north a bit, where we had been earlier this summer. The fishing there turned out to be really good, as these folks limited out on rockfish, and caught a few bluefish to go along with it! We're still chumming for stripers, but we also caught a few of them with live spot. This bodes well for the rest of the summer!

Catching Maryland Rockfish on the Chesapeake Bay!

It was another fine day of fishing this morning out of Kent Narrows! We've known this one guy for several years, but we hadn't been able to get him to book a Chesapeake Bay striped bass fishing charter until now. Fishing out of Kent Narrows puts us a lot closer to our customers. He finally got together a group and the picture above shows how they made out. Another limit of rockfish!

Light Tackle Fishing for Stripers on the Chesapeake Bay

We had two Chesapeake Bay fishing charters today. The first one was a grandfather who decided to take his grandson fishing while on vacation. The above picture shows that the grandson was pretty happy! He caught plenty of fish and outfished his granddad! After limiting out on striped bass, we did some bottom fishing for white perch.

The below picture is from our afternoon trip. These folks were from all over the country and had gathered nearby for a business conference. They decided to do a fishing trip with us while they were in town. They did not leave disappointed! They caught their limit of rockfish and arranged for a nearby restaurant to cook their catch!

A Load of Fish Caught Right Before The Thunderstorms!

Here is yet another cooler full of Chesapeake Bay rockfish, caught with light tackle! We had a group of farmers out with us, and they had no trouble limiting out on striped bass! We were able to limit out and get back to the dock at Kent Narrows just before the thunderstorms hit. Not only were the farmers happy with their fish, but they were also happy for the rain!

Chesapeake Bay Fishing Action out of Kent Narrows!

The Chesapeake Bay striped bass fishing out of Kent Narrows was great again this morning! This crew limited out on rockfish in pretty short order with chum and light tackle! A very happy bunch of anglers! We will be at Kent Narrows all this week, so if you have a date in mind and wanna go, just let us know!

A Wide Variety of Fish on the Chesapeake Bay!

The crew that fished with us today has been on Chesapeake Bay fishing charters with us for almost 20 years! We left this afternoon out of Kent Narrows, and the fishing was great! These guys limited out on Chesapeake Bay striped bass, and then we went bottom fishing. They caught a bunch of white perch, and even a couple of catfish! Another great day on the Chesapeake Bay!

Chesapeake Bay Fishing Action on Friday the 13th!

This is the first time that this crew has gone out with us, fishing on the Chesapeake Bay, and hopefully not their last! Right now, we are fishing out of Kent Narrows. The fish have moved up the bay and so have we! These folks had no trouble limiting out on rockfish with light tackle! This fishing is good for people of all skill levels. We will be at Kent Narrows all this coming week, so if you have a group that wants to go, give us a call!

An Action-Packed Morning of Chesapeake Bay Striper Fishing!

Well, the month of July has started the same way that the month of June left off! Light tackle fishing for striped bass continues to be red-hot on the Chesapeake Bay! This crew fished with us for the first time today, and in spite of strong winds this morning, they still came home with a limit of rockfish! As soon as we got to the fishing grounds, we anchored up and started bailing chunks of menhaden into the water. It didn't take long for the rockfish to see the food! The fish started to bite, and they continued to bite until this group had their limit. There were also a lot of smaller fish that had to be thrown back, so there was plenty of action this morning. We still have plenty of dates available this summer. Give us a call at (410) 397-3743!

Another Batch of Nice Chesapeake Bay Rockfish!
Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report: June 30, 2018

Pretty Rockfish on the Chesapeake Bay!

We ended the month of June with a BANG! Check out the fish that we caught today! We left the dock a little bit earlier than normal and got to the fishing grounds sooner than most of the other boats on this Saturday morning, and it paid off. This 11-man crew caught their limit of stripers on the Chesapeake Bay in pretty short order. The fish caught today were some of the prettiest caught yet this summer. They ranged between 19 and 26 inches in length, and had some girth to them as well! We have plenty of open dates if you wanna go fishing with us this summer. Just give us a call to book your date!

Capt. Dave Schauber is a native to Maryland's Eastern Shore. He has fished on the Chesapeake Bay his entire life. From the late 1970s to the late 1990s, he operated sawmills for a living. After relocating to Dorchester County in 1981 to operate another sawmill, he quickly became known in the community as simply "The Sawyer", and is still referred to by that title to this day. It is often confused with his last name. This is the origin of the business name, and hence the boat name. After moving to Dorchester County, he fished the lower and middle Chesapeake Bay, in addition to the Honga River, Fishing Bay, and other local bodies of water for years. He started out with small, center-console boats and worked his way up to eventually owning a 42-foot Bay-built vessel. He obtained his Captain's License in 1992, and began to run fishing charters on the weekends and his days off. After building his business for several years, he made the decision to leave the sawmill and begin running charters full time in 1999. His business continued to grow, leading to the construction of our new boat in 2002.
