The Chesapeake Bay is home to many different species of fish.  Some of the popular species are the Striped Bass (Rockfish), Blue Fish, Spanish Mackerel, Flounder, Croaker, Speckled Sea Trout, Spot, and White Perch.  Here at Rock Solid Charters and Guide Service, we will help you target the species of your choice.  We offer many different methods to do this.  Our methods are trolling, live lining, jigging, bottom fishing and top water action which is perfect for Light Tackle/Fly Fishing.

Safety and conservation are two of our main priorities, but putting our guests on fish ranks right up there beside them.  Although we cannot guarantee fish, we will do everything possible to ensure you a trip to remember.

We fish year round; from mid April to December we fish the middle Chesapeake Bay.  Then from January to mid March we fish off Virginia Beach.  Whether it is a charter trip or guided trip we will do what is necessary to put our guests on the fish they are looking for.
