Virginia Beach Inshore Fishing Charter

The Virginia Beach inshore charter fishing season is now getting started. Spring is here and we are beginning to see some fish showing up on our inshore fishing trips. Inside rudee inlet, we are seeing some puppy drum (AKA redfish). They are here and we are seeing the puppy drum swimming and sunning, but they are not eating yet. That should change any time now as waters warm into the 50 degree plus range. It has been a very cold winter in Virginia Beach and the fishing has been very tough. We are very excited that spring is here and that some good fishing will be here in the very near future. Within days, we should see some fish beginning to arrive in the inshore waters just off the coast of Virginia Beach. We will see flounder, tautog, and dogfish moving into our waters any day now. These are typically the first species we see migrate into Virginia waters and they are past due now.


Offshore, several species have been available now for weeks. We have several species of tunas including bluefin tuna and yellowfin tuna as well as mako sharks readily available in the offshore waters out of Virginia Beach. A new state record bluefin tuna was caught on thursday out of Rudee Inlet by Robert Smith, who regularly works with us at Matador Charters. Robert caught the 576.5 pound 103 inch bluefin tuna fishing aboard the Bella Donna out of Rudee Inlet thursday after a 3 hour battle with the huge tuna on an 80 wide. So congratulations to Robert and the crew of the Bella Donna on their catch. We also have deep drop fishing charters available offshore out of Virginia right now for several species of tilefish and grouper. Black sea bass season comes back in May 15 and we are booking sea bass trips. We are also booking inshore and offshore fishing charters out of Virginia Beach so give us a call at 757-749-6008 and get your Virginia Beach fishing charter booked.
