The fishing season begins with flounder starting as early as late March in some years and often continuing well into the spring. Expect the early season flounder fishing to bring lots of boats to Wachapreague. The inlet commonly sees drum shortly after the flounder peak, the channels and cuts can hold everything from croaker to weakfish during the summer months. In early May, you can add wreck fishing. and deep droping to the mix. The wrecks and bottom structures that we fish are from 6 to 14 miles off of the Wachapreague. Black Sea Bass, Tautog and flounder are the catches you can expect during the spring fishing months. Early season canyon deep droping trips are usually wide open!
Offshore waters also become alive in late May, as eddies of warm water from the Gulf Stream make their way inshore near the canyons. The canyons are 50 miles from the Wachapreague Inlet and mark the area of the ocean floor where the ocean drops off very quickly, from 300 feet t0 600 feet and then to depths to 5000 feet and beyond! The Teaser crew have thousands of hours fishing these canyons and are overly familiar with the canyons off our coastline. We encourage our clients to capitalize on this time frame. May and June are ideal times due to the warm water eddies circulating through the canyons. The temperature changes and bottom surface structure and depth changes cause bait to congregate, attracting large numbers of Shark, Big Eye, Bluefin and Yellowfin Tuna with Mahi.
By July, billfish are moving into the mix. White Marlin, Blue Marlin, and Wahoo heat up at this time of year and will continue to be through October.
Just 3 hours from Baltimore, Wachapreague is an easy drive to some of the best fishing in the world! If you like an uncrowded, laid back and friendly area - then Wachapreague is for you.
