Typical fishing seasons in the Solomons, Maryland area
The Seasons at a Glance:
Our season starts on May 1 every year. We target big Rockfish (up to 50#) through May 15 . These fish are migratory,
and are here for a very short time. This is the time of the year to catch a once in a lifetime Trophy Striped Bass (Rockfish)
Starting May 16 you may keep 2 of the smaller resident Rockfish per person.
Summer months (July-Sept) offer a mix of Rockfish, Bluefish, Spanish Mackerel and Spot. Normally, they arrive in late June.
It's also possible to catch a Cobia or Red Drum during the summer months.
The months of October through November offer the most diversified fishing of the year. Mixed catches of
Rockfish, Blues, Spot, White perch and Spanish Mackeral are common. During the months of November and December
the Rockfish are fatting up for the long winter ahead.
