Maryland Chesapeake Bay Fishing Guide & Luxury Hotel

The Chesapeake Bay in Maryland offers great year round salt-water fishing. With many tributaries feeding into the bay there are all kinds of fish to be had; sea trout, spanish mackerel, flounder, croaker, white perch, bluefish, and striped bass - some of which can get pretty big. Most of the time the fish are pretty close to shore and in the middle of the Chesapeake Bay. Local guides can take you out to some pretty good fishing offshore. At this time of the year, ‘spring’, ask about the catch and release season on the Susquehanna Flats this is a great opportunity to catch some pretty large striped bass on light tackle.

While staying at this luxurious Maryland Hotel we were able to take a fishing charter out to the Chesapeake Bay. We caught some pretty fine fish, no record holders though.

We went out with Fishsticks Charters - Captain Kurt Freund - they offered a personalized guide services for all levels from beginner to expert. Light tackle and fly fishing trips for up to four on the 23' Jones Brothers Cape Fisherman. Couples are a specialty. Catered box lunch is available and fly fishing lessons on or off the water to hone your skills are also available.

They also offer kayak fishing, while we did not have time for this on the trip it was something we were pretty keen to do, maybe next trip.
Trying to fit all the things to do into a long weekend was tough, but we managed to get in some fishing and some great massages at the luxurious Maryland Hotel where we stayed in a waterfront suite.
