The waters off and around Virginia Beach are often touted as the best fishing grounds in the mid-Atlantic. Due to its unique location, Virginia Beach offers both warm water and cold-water species. Just about every type of saltwater fishing is available here, too, Including great offshore fishing. Off the coasts of   Virginia and its neighbor, North Carolina, are all sorts of places that attract fish. These include wrecks, offshore towers, and underwater canyons, including Norfolk Canyon. The steep, rocky walls of the trench are a favorite hangout for big predatory fish species just waiting for the powerful current to deliver a meal to them. Some of the most popular species landed while fishing offshore from Virginia Beach include Yellowfin, Bigeye & Bluefin Tuna, wahoo, dolphin fish "Mahi Mahi", Mako sharks and other shark species, Swordfish, Sailfish, Blue Marlin, White Marlin & Several deep structure bottom fish such as Tilefish & Grouper. Tuna Fishing Charters Virginia Beach] Deep Sea Fishing Charters out of Virginia Beach focus on canyons and other bottom structures like shipwrecks, downed planes, and debris. Baits are dropped into the deep trenches and around wrecks and will produce Sword Fish, Blueline Tilefish, Golden Tilefish, Tautog, Codfish, Black Sea Bass, and the occasional snowy grouper, and most of these are delicious on the table. Nice catches of rosefish are common in the deep water, too. Because the targeted fish might be as deep down as   300 feet or so, special reels are used by the fishing charters to make the experience more comfortable for their guest anglers. Some of the best Virginia Beach offshore fishing spots are sixty-five miles from port, which means a fairly lengthy boat ride. That’s just one reason why it’s so important to find the best Virginia Beach fishing guides and charter boats. Inshore Fishing Have you ever heard of the Chesapeake Light? You can find it fifteen miles from Virginia Beach, in the Atlantic Ocean. This is a prime spot for Virginia Beach inshore fishing. The light and its tower are fascinating to history buffs, but they might be even more fascinating for anglers. Its original purpose was to guide boats and ships to the entrance of the Bay, and while it certainly fulfills this purpose, it also attracts huge numbers of saltwater fish. Why is this so? Think about the structure for a moment. The four columns of the tower are encrusted with barnacles and vegetation, which means food for certain species. These small fish that feed around the pilings provide food for slightly larger fish, and these fish become meals for big fish. It’s a simple understanding of the marine food chain. There’s also something else that makes the Chesapeake Light Tower so attractive to fish: cover and habitat. Around the base of the tower are literally acres of discarded tires, lengths of steel, old train cars, and wrecked boats. These structures mean hiding places for smaller fish, and where there are smaller fish, big predators can usually be found. If you ever get the chance to fish the tower, you’ll be in for a real angling adventure, with lots of opportunities to land spadefish, sea bass, cobia, amberjack, Spanish mackerel, flounder, triggerfish, and tautog. [Amberjack Fishing Virginia Beach] Fishing in the Chesapeake Bay is the ultimate angling goal of many fishermen, and it’s no wonder. The Bay is a rich environment that’s also varied, with different salinity zones, different depths, and different types of fish habitats. As far as fishing goes, there are numerous hot spots in the Bay, including the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel, flats, river mouths, creeks, buoys, and channel markers. Reigning supreme among all the finned fishes in the Bay is the striped bass, striper, or rockfish, choose your name because they are the same fish. These striped predators can be caught legally in the three-mile zone, which is measured from shore. The striper begin congregating in the Chesapeake in autumn, and the angling community is abuzz with the news of the year’s striper catch. The rockfish usually exit the Bay in January to make their return to the ocean. At that time, the fish are often targeted off the Atlantic beaches which is when Virginia Beach inshore fishing gets hot, even though it’s in the dead of winter. Once all the rockfish have left the Bay, the action for other fish species heats up. Local and visiting anglers go on the hunt for redfish, spotted seatrout, tautog, flounder, cobia, Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish, Black Sea Bass, Black Drum, Atlantic Spadefish, and other desirable species. One thing’s for sure – Virginia Beach inshore fishing is never dull! For the fishing trip of a lifetime, contact one of the top Virginia Beach fishing charters "Knot Tell'n" out of Rudee Inlet at Fishermans Wharf Marina. Whether you’re an experienced angler or a “greenhorn,” our captain and crew will see to it that you have a blast.

    Additional Terms & Information

    Frequently Asked Questions • How many fishermen are allowed to come for the posted price? Six maximum allowed per charter. You are not required to bring six but the price does not change for smaller groups. • Do I need a fishing license? No. Boat is licensed for all fishermen aboard. • What does the charter fee include? All fishing tackle, bait, ice, all licenses, Captain Scott Horton & his mate has many years of fishing expertise, great memories to last a lifetime! • Can I choose which fish species I want to target? ABSOLUTELY! But keep in mind, the time of year, location, water conditions, water temperature, barometric pressure, underwater currents, the stars and the moon dictate what bites and what doesn't. We'll let you know what's biting the best the day of your charter because we want you to catch fish! But the bottom line is, we'll make every effort to fulfill your request. • What you'll need to bring? Bring your own food and drinks. Sunblock, polarized sunglasses. Camera and/or video camera! Motion sickness medicine is an inexpensive way to insure you have a good fishing trip! Here are some products we heard worked for others: Quease Ease - Motion Sickness Instant Relief, Sea-Band Sea-Band Acupressure Wrist Bands, bonine or meclazine. Bring lots of water! It's the most important beverage to bring! An offshore fishing trip is a long day (nearly 12 hours) so remember to bring anything that will make you comfortable. Proper clothes for the season. Remember that the weather can change quickly, so dress in layers or bring layers with you. Rain gear if needed. • Do you have a "NO FISH-NO PAY" policy? No. It's a simple fact of life that all fishing places, no matter how good or how many stories have been written about them, sometimes just don't produce fish on a given day. Some people feel there should be a guarantee when chartering a boat. However, what you're paying for is to be on a boat with the opportunity to catch a large fish and the story of a lifetime. While we have a long history of successful fishing, there are NO GUARANTEES when it comes to catching fish. • Safety Captain Scott & Mates are United States Coast Guard licensed and insured Virginia charter boat Captains with First Aid & C.P.R certifications. All for-hire vessels that carry six passengers MUST have every inch of the boat inspected and certified by the Coast Guard; top and bottom. This is similar to a doctor being "board certified." • What is the difference between trolling and bottom fishing? Trolling is done in deep waters, using outriggers, downriggers and trolling rods, while the boat is moving at a certain slow speed. We can have up to 10 poles in the water to maximize your chances of catching fish. Bottom fishing is done by drifting offshore and dropping lines straight down, either with electric reels or hand-cranked reels. Bottom fishing is more affected by the ocean conditions and can not be offered on a day with big waves and/or strong currents. • What do we fish for? Inshore - Cobia, Red drum, Black drum, Striper, Tautog, Flounder, Bluefish, Spanish Mackerel, Sharks. Offshore - White Marlin, Blue Marlin, Sailfish, Bluefin tuna, Big eye tuna, Yellowfin tuna, Longfin Tuna, Wahoo, Sharks, Dolphin"Mahi-Mahi", Swordfish, King Mackerel, Amberjack, Grouper, Tilefish, Barrelfish, Sea bass & More! • Is there a bathroom on the boat? Yes. In fact, we have three comfortable and clean bathrooms on the boat. • Is there a mate to help us? Yes, the mate will help as much OR as little as you want. He'll show you how to use the tackle, bait the hooks and bring the fish into the boat. • What's the standard and customary tip for the mate? The mate works hard for your fishing pleasure. Please keep in mind that the mate works for tips only. They are usually there hous before your trip begins preparing all rods & reels, rigging baits, cleaning the boat, doing engine safety checks etc...they are also there for hours after the trip cleaning up as well. 15-20% of the charter fee is customary & is highly appreciated. • What is the estimated duration of trips? It depends on which trip you have booked for the day. Please see our trips prices page for trip times & duration. • What happens if rain/bad weather is forecasted for my fishing day? Safety is our primary concern. During inclement weather. Fishing trips may be rescheduled or even canceled if the captain deems it necessary. Inclement weather would be; High Winds, Rough Seas, or Heavy Rain for the entire day. **Full refund of deposit will be given - only if the captain decides it's unsafe to fish** • What NOT to bring on the boat! NO BANANAS! Just don't do it! Bananas on boats are BAD LUCK! NO TANNING OIL! Tanning oil on a boat is very dangerous and should be saved for the beach. Nobody wants to try to hold onto something and find themselves in the ocean because there was oil left on that part of the boat from another passenger. Sunblock is fine. NO GLASS BOTTLES! Please bring cans, as broken glass on a boat can be very dangerous. NO NEGATIVITY! Having positive energy and thinking positively on board the boat does directly have a positive effect on the success of fishing and the fun factor! Be careful not to allow negative thinking to creep into the day during times of a slow or nonexistent bite. You’ll begin to focus on the bad in all events, people, places, and things, making it very hard for the captain and crew to work effectively at putting fish on the hook and pleasing you. Like the saying goes "A bad day fishing is still better than any day of work!" So leave any “negativity” at the dock! It will be there when you get back, for sure!
