Chesapeake Bay Fishing Trips
There are not many things in life that are better than heading out on the water to experience a Chesapeake Bay Fishing Trip. Here at Backdraft Charters, we know exactly what it takes to create cherished memories that will last a lifetime.
We are based on the stunning Chesapeake Bay, which is North America’s largest estuary, and our full-service Chesapeake Bay fishing trips are designed for fishermen of all experiences – from complete beginners to regular big fish anglers!
The Chesapeake Bay Area
We chose the Chesapeake Bay for our fishing trips as it guarantees the best possible experience every single time. With over 4,400 square miles of smooth water, and covering parts of six states, the area is often considered the dream location for fishing in North America thanks to it being the meeting point of more than 150 major rivers.
With such a vast area to choose from, no two days fishing on the Chesapeake Bay are the same, and no matter the season, there is always an abundance of fish available to catch. Fishing enthusiasts across the globe flock to the area each year to fish its waters, but it is the striped bass that the Chesapeake Bay is most famous for – with over 70% of the fish on the Atlantic Coast spawning in the region.
Although the bay is a year-round destination for anglers, late summer and early fall are the most popular due to the abundance of species choosing Chesapeake at that time to feed and spawn. So no matter whether you are after trolling or bottom fishing, the Chesapeake Bay allows you to experience it all.
The striped bass, or rockfish as the locals call it, is definitely the region’s most popular catch but fishermen can also expect to be able to catch an incredible variety of species including bluefish, black drum, red drum, croaker, spot, white perch, and Spanish mackerel.
