Chesapeake Bay Charter Fishing aboard the Tracy Lynn

The Chesapeake Bay charter fishing season runs from mid-April through mid-December for Rockfish, Bluefish, Trout and Spanish Mackerel. During the Spring Trophy season for the Stripers/Rockfish/Striped Bass (mid-April through May 15) the larger fish have moved to the mid-Chesapeake Bay areas from the Bay Bridge to Solomon's Island, With the Summer Season (beginning May 16) the Stripers/Rockfish/Striped Bass are in the Upper and Middle Chesapeake Bay areas. 

We fish the Upper Chesapeake Bay to the Lower-Mid Chesapeake Bay. The type of fishing and areas to be fished depends on where and how the fish are biting.

Capt TJ has been fishing areas on the Chesapeake Bay for over 40 years and will put you on the fish. The Tracy Lynn is equipped with the latest safety equipment and electronics. All licenses, bait and tackle are provided. 

Family cruises on the Chesapeake Bay are also available. Enjoy early morning or sunset cruises to see the beautiful Thomas Point and Bloody Point Lighthouses and the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. Kentmorr Restaurant and Mike's Crab House are within short distances for a leisurely lunch or nice dinner.


If you are looking for that "special gift" for the person who has everything, why not consider giving a Gift Certificate for a day of enjoyment on the Tracy Lynn Charters. Enjoy fishing and/or cruising on the beautiful Chesapeake Bay. Let that "special" someone decide. Call us for more information on Gift Certificates.

Trolling: The Trophy Striper/Rockfish/Striped Bass season starts in mid-April and runs through May 15th for the larger fish (one fish allowed per angler). Trolling for other species such as Bluefish, Trout and Spanish Mackerel runs through mid-December. We provide only the best fishing gear for this type of fishing. Capt TJ can put you on the fish and leave you with some great memories that can last a lifetime.

*NOTE: The Captain reserves the right to return to homeport once you have caught your daily limit of Rockfish/Stripers. The Captain also reserves the right to return to homeport in the event of change in weather (bad and/or dangerous conditions).

Chumming: Chumming or live-lining with light tackle can be great for Stripers/Rockfish. Aboard the Tracy Lynn, we grind fresh bait on board when chumming along with fresh cut bait. When live lining, we provide live bait. Fish cleaning also available.

Bottom Fishing: Bottom fishing for Perch, Spot and Croakers/Hardhead is offered with light tackle spinning gear and great family fun. This type of fishing is great for small children and groups that really want to catch fish.
