Fall 2013

Written by captpete Under Uncategorized

We are still here and we are still fishing!

My apologies to all for the lack of attention to this site over the past year. As many of you know, you can find us on Facebook by looking up ‘Captain Pete’s Fishing Charters’. I am very active on Facebook and post lots of pictures and updates. It’s a far easier medium to communicate with customers. I can post pictures and updates with a few steps from my phone right from the boat.

2013 was a particularly challenging year. For the second straight year there were very few rockfish within a practical distance from Solomons so most of the year the Pelican was at Breezy Point Marina in Chesapeake Beach. This presented us with some logistical challenges, but seemed to be very popular with our customers as most of them are 20-30 minutes closer to Breezy Point than Solomons. I must say that the fishing in the upper bay was fantastic this year! We had lots of rockfish, spot and blues. Live-lining for rockfish was as good as it could possibly be, limits of rockfish being the norm, from the time the spot showed up in June until they left in early November.

When the spot left, we continued to fish out of Breezy Point, mainly trolling in and near the Choptank River for rockfish. That was good until the third week of November or so and I moved the boat down to the Point Lookout area where fishing was fantastic for a few weeks. We were all disappointed that the big migratory fish never showed up this fall. There were a few caught, but mostly we caught resident fish in the 4-12 pound class. The good news was that they were pretty plentiful and were so fat that they looked like striped footballs!

In all likelihood we will once again be Breezy Point most of 2014. I hope to hear from you soon!

Late Fall 2012

Written by captpete Under Uncategorized

Well, just when it looked like we wouldn’t have any big rockfish to speak of for a third straight year, it seems they fell out of the sky and now we are in the midst of the best run of big migratory fish we’ve seen in years. Virginia and the Potomac River are open until Dec. 31 and I have openings if anyone wants to try to sneak in one more trip and catch some big rock! Check out the video of us catching some nice fish. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HBn838dk52g

Also, make sure you go on Facebook and ‘like’ ‘Captain Pete’s Fishing Charters’ for more frequent and timely updates.

Capt. Pete’s Charters featured on WTOP!

Written by admin Under Fishing news, Site news

Hey everyone, check this out!

From the article:

“Bay captain Pete Ide signals to the oncoming crab boat he’d like to parley.

It’s a sunny day on the Chesapeake Bay and boaters of all sorts are out conducting their business. Ide had been steering his charter boat with his feet while instinctively scanning for fish and eyeing the sonar.”

In fishing news, a decent number of small bluefish and Spanish mackerel have shown up near Solomons and we’re seeing a few keeper rockfish with them. Croaker fishing remains strong with nice, big late-season fish at night. I only have a few nights left for croaker trips so if you want to try to squeeze one in, make it soon.

Red fish…. or chupacabras?

Written by captpete Under Fishing news

The other day we got quite a surprise. We were trolling four small spoons on planers for small blues and mackerel. Fishing was really slow when I saw a nice cloud of fish on the finder. They were pretty deep so I slowed the boat and made a turn to get the lines in the fish. Suddenly, WHAM, WHAM, WHAM, WHAM! We were covered up with what was almost certainly big redfish. I’ll never know for sure because they broke off or bent up everything we had and we never even saw one. I put some bigger stuff on and trolled the area for another hour with no sign of them. Ugh. Well, perhaps they were bull sharks, or just as likely, Chupacabras.

Good Fishing

Written by captpete Under Fishing news

Fishing has been pretty good lately. Found some red hot croaker fishing and the rockfish have been fairly steady. I’m also posting a new rockfish recipe provided my Ms. Britta that you might want to try.
