Chesapeake Bay Early Season Fishing for Striped Bass

Early Season Start for Maryland for Striped Bass
The official Maryland Striped Bass season is still several weeks away, but many fisherman are ancious to get a jump on just plain catching fish and a day on the Bay.

Lots of locals who have gotten out have found the big stripers more than willing to take trolled baits in the Chesapeake. Jigging the warm water discharges from power plants on the bay have also drawn an early start to Striper fishing on Maryland Chesapeake Bay.

Although many charterboats and guides are still getting their boats ready for the April Trophy Striped Bass season start, calls are coming in to get out on the Bay and catch these big stripers moving in the Chesapeake, fresh from the Atlantic.
Light Tackle Jigging or Trolling
Big or small fish, it does not matter, people enjoy catching fish and just being on the Bay! Many visitors do not want to keep the fish and only enjoy catching.
This World Class Striper fishery is growing rapidly as word gets out about this early season fishery can be great. Many Maryland sportsfisherman and vistors who want to enjoy our Maryland fishery are finding out about this Catch and Release only availability.
New regulations have been implemented to help protect this fishery. Limiting the number of rods fished to 6, barbless hooks, no stinger hooks and more are designed to insure a healthy release for our prized striped bass.

For early season Charters, be sure to check with me for dates and places to spend a day on the Bay and enjoy our World Class Striped Bass fishing.

We have fish for all sizes.. for more information contact Capt. Frank Tuma or visit
