Where We Fish

We fish in all areas of the Chesapeake Bay .... we go where the fish are!

The regional Maryland rockfishing is the first and most requested type of Chesapeake Bay charter fishing that your guide, Captain Jeff Shahan provides. Chesapeake Bay fishing or Maryland fishing in it's other forms like bottom fishing for spot, croaker, and other popular bottom dwellers is also high on Big Rig Charter's possible types of fishing trips but it usually depends on what is available and what time of season it is. For instance, in the last half of April the trophy rockfish season opens up and most likely there will be only a few bottom fishing trips at that time unless specifically requested simply because during the trophy rockfish season most anglers are not even thinking about catching a spot. For Chesapeake Bay striper season obscession would be a good word to use because most Maryland striper anglers are obscessed with catching a 50 pound striper during Chesapeake Bay trophy striper fishing season.

Once trophy striper season passes most of the Maryland charter boats turn their attention to other popular species to target for their customers. For some relaxing fun in the sun fishing on Chesapeake Bay your choice of charter fishing may be a bottom fishing trip to catch spot, croaker, and perch. This type of fishing, often called Chesapeake Bay drift fishing is perfect for the whole family including young children who often enjoy themselves so much they become "hooked" on Chesapeake Bay sport fishing right away. Just like striper fishing is not the only type of fishing bottom fishing can result in more than just a small spot or perch. There is the chance of catching a nice flounder, bluefish, red drum, trout or spanish mackerel. The opportunities are many and the fun is endless.

And if you thought fishing in Chesapeake Bay was it then you might miss out on a nice Chesapeake Bay cruise, a beautiful sunset cruise, a sightseeing cruise, or a party cruise. For these activities we can sail from Tilghman Iisland, Rock Hall, Cambridge, and other ports on both the Western and Eastern Shore of Chesapeake Bay.
