Virginia Beach inshore fishing charter report 4/24/16

The fishing season in Virginia Beach has started and Matador charters is booking trips and fishing. 


Inshore, we have been charter fishing around rudee inlet. The fishing hasnt been great and hasnt been terrible, and has been very hit or miss in the inlet. on our inlet fishing charters in rudee we have been seeing mostly bluefish, but some puppy drum, speckled trout, and flounder have been around as well. The flounder fishing has been steadily improving by the day and in the next couple days flounder should become plentiful enough to be a reliable target species. 

On our inshore charter fishing trips we are starting to see a couple of options becoming available. Red drum and black drum have begun to show on the eastern shore of Virginia around fishermen's island. These charter fishing trips are best in the evenings and are a good option for those who want to catch a trophy fish. a good drum trip results in a couple of bites at best and its definitely quality over quantity. Matador charters will be booking drum charters through may. 

Also on our inshore charter fishing trips we have been doing some wreck fishing charters. Wreck fishing is really great right now and its fun and we catch a lot of fish, but the only problem is that most of the fish we are catching on the wrecks are black sea bass that are out of season until may 15. When the black sea bass season opens may 15th we will see and abundance of sea bass for our inshore fishing charters. We have also been catching some tautog (blackfish) on our wreck fishing charters, and we can keep tautog, but the results vary from trip to trip. Some days we catch a lot of tautog. some days just afew. 

Offshore we are seeing gulf stream fishing charters beginning to pick up some yellowfin tuna and bluefin tuna, and some mahi mahi in the catches to the south as well. There are sharks available offshore too. Offshore trolling charters should continue to improve daily and can be very productive early in the season when the gulf stream moves within range.

We also offer deep drop fishing charters for tilefish and grouper and there should be plenty of tilefish available through the summer.

We have charter trips available now through the entire summer give me a call at 757-749-6008 and get your Virginia Beach fishing charter booked.
