Chesapeake Bay Charter Boat Fishing – During that summer the head boat Bounty Hunter with Capt. Glenn James was starting fishing at night for these delicious eating fish. Nobody knew how long these fish would stay, ten days or 10 weeks. It was difficult to advertise or schedule charters, but in 1998 after the success of the Bounty Hunter, everybody (including the Darlene II) got into the action. And in the summer of 1999, it got even better, despite more than 100 boats working a five-mile area on some weekend nights. We added sea trout, flounder, blues and some 22″ croakers to our nightly catch.
Our Croaker season runs from June thru the end of August. It should be a great year. We will offer two types of trips, a seven hr. from 5 p.m. to midnight, which will include fishing for rockfish; or our six hr. A trip from 6 pm tonight. Eight people minimum rate will apply.
From our experience, we catch more varieties than most other boats, but we use only fresh bait, including soft shell crabs, shrimp, bloodworms, cut spot, and razor clams. Our five kW Westerbeke diesel generator provides the lights to attract the fish. Our new Penn reels and light action rods provide the excitement. Don’t miss out on this fantastic night fishing opportunity. We limit our night parties to 20 people in your group. 12 to 15 is the perfect size group for the Darlene II.
