Virginia Beach Fishing Guides
Virginia fishing trips offer a unique blend of southern hospitality and hard-working grit thanks to our guides. Take the kids out for their first trip and watch their eyes light up when Captain Kevin hooks them up to some giant Redfish! More experienced anglers can try casting to Cobia on the fly with Captain Jack (no relation to the pirate!), and Captain Jay will set out the trolling spread for mahi mahi and wahoo all day long. Each of our Virginia Beach fishing guides are as versatile as they are friendly and welcoming and we can't wait to help prove it.
Rockfish Virginia Beach
Up to an estimated 90% of the world’s striped bass (known as rockfish in these parts) live in the Chesapeake Bay! Many anglers hit Virginia Beach specifically to target rockfish. With plenty of tournaments and multiple seasons for rockfish, there is always a ton of action on our Virginia Beach inshore fishing charters. In addition to wild times chasing rockfish, other species to catch include flounder, redfish, and cobia, which are all hard-fighting and delicious species to target.
Offshore Fishing Charters Virginia Beach
Offshore action is plentiful, especially when you head out to Norfolk Canyon. This canyon is an underwater crevasse jutting off from the continental shelf and it brings the deep ocean giants closer to shore. Once in the Norfolk Canyon, you'll have a quality shot at some solid yellowfin, wahoo, cobia, and bluefish. The big billfish can be found here as well eating baitfish and maybe even your lure.
