Fishing Gear/Fishing Techniques
All necessary fishing gear and bait is provided by your crew. There are three types of fishing in the Chesapeake: the first being trolling, the second light tackle fishing, and the third being bottom fishing. Aboard the Nancy Ellen, we choose our technique of fishing based on the time of the year. Our two preferred methods of fishing are bottom fishing and light tackle fishing. We believe that light tackle fishing gives every angler a more gratifying experience. However, during the spring trophy season while targeting the larger migrating striped bass, we troll.
