Striped bass charter fishing in VA beach

Rockfish season is here! Matador Charters is currently running inshore striped bass fishing charters from rudee inlet in Virginia Beach. The fishing so far for stripers has been great. We are seeing plenty of schoolie sized stripers in the chesapeake bay and some of the trophy sized striped bass are beginning to show up in the lower chesapeake bay. Yesterday matador charters did a full day inshore trolling trip for schoolie sized stripers and caught over 50 stripers, keeping 10 nice ones for the grill. This fishing is really great fun fishing with plenty of action everyone gets to catch a bunch of fish. Striper season in the bay should continue to improve daily and we have plenty of dates available for charter. 

Also, for full day inshore fishing, we are seeing great fishing on the wrecks for sea bass, tautog, flounder, and bluefish. Wreck fishing charters have been doing very well recently. 

Offshore, trolling in the gulf stream has still been producing catches of yellowfin tuna and mahi mahi, with sharks and swordfish available on overnight trips offshore fishing charters. 

Deep drop charters have been very productive for sea bass, tilefish, grouper, and wreckfish. 

Speckled trout, bluefish, and stripers continue to bite in the inlets. 

Bluefin tuna fishing is right around the corner in Virginia Beach and they could make a showing at any time.
