Virginia Beach fishing charters are nonstop fun. Take off from the Virginia Beach Fishing Center and cruise out of Rudee Inlet to fish for Rockfish and Cobia at the Chesapeake Light Tower, or stay close by fishing nearshore waters along Sandbridge Beach.

Rockfish Fishing in 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.
