Virginia Beach Family Charter Fishing

Virgina Beach Family Charter Fishing

Many families come to Virginia Beach for vacations to go charter fishing. Taking your family on a fishing charter is a great way to spend a day and at matador charters we really enjoy taking families fishing. Children have a great time fishing and being on the boat and we go the extra steps to spend time teaching your family about fishing and being on the ocean.
Most of the charter fishing trips we recommend for families are inshore trips. We catch plenty of fish inshore and most of the time, kids want to catch sharks. Luckily, Virginia Beach has sharks very near to its coast the majority of the year. Our boat is big and comfortable and has all sorts of amenities for your family including a full bathroom, two zone climate control, tv, stereo, a microwave, and refrigerator to ensure you spend your fishing time comfortably. Matador charters specializes in taking families fishing. There is nothing like spending time with your kids on the water and watching the amazement they get out of catching fish.

VA Beach Inshore Fishing Charters

In virginia beach we have very good fishing in our inshore waters, year round for a multitude of species. An inshore fishing trip can be a great option especially for families who want to get out and spend a day on the water. Inshore charter trips can be full, half, and three quarter day and are typically a much easier going relaxing fishing day than an offshore trip. The runs to and from the fishing grounds are shorter and we typically stay in the Atlantic Ocean or Chesapeake Bay where there is plenty to catch.
On an inshore trip out of Virginia beach, you never know what you are going to catch. In the winter months we typically catch striped bass, sea bass, flounder, tautog, bluefish and dogfish. During the summer months we catch sea bass, flounder, spot, croaker, spanish mackerel, cobia, bluefish, spadefish, red drum, black drum, several different species of sharks, and amberjacks. Our half day inshore trips are very popular with families during the summertime and are great for kids. On a half day inshore during the summer, you can typically plan to catch spanish mackerel, bluefish, lots of sharks, and an occasional cobia or red drum. There are many other options, but this is what we usually target and what is usually the most readily available to catch. Matador charters does a ron of inshore fishing and we know what's biting and how to get them.

VA Beach Shark Fishing Charters

VA Beach Shark Fishing Charters
The waters off Virginia Beach and Rudee Inlet are some of the best fishing grounds in the world for sharks. The nutrient rich waters of the Chesapeake bay, the Labrador current, and gulf stream all converge off the coast of Virginia creating a great place to fish for sharks. Matador charters does a LOT of shark fishing. Many people prefer to charter the boat for an inshore trip to catch sharks. This is a great option for the family. Although we do catch some really huge sharks inshore, most of the sharks we catch are smaller juvenile sharks like blacktip sharks, spinner sharks, hammerhead sharks, sharpnose sharks and bull sharks. These sharks are catch and release for the most part, but still very fun to catch and kids really have a blast watching these sharks come in and feed, and a little kid holding a shark makes a great photo.
Virginia Beach Shark Fishing
Do you want to catch a fish bigger than you? We can also fish for sharks on an offshore charter trip and an overnight charter trip. The sharks you will catch on these trips are huge. We use big baits, big rods, and we catch some really huge sharks offshore of Virginia Beach. Sharks are available offshore in Virginia most of the year and we regularly catch hammerhead sharks, mako sharks, dusky sharks, tiger sharks, and its not even all that uncommon to see a great white shark. These things are true beasts from the deep. They fight hard and are very impressive fish. Either way whether its inshore or offshore Matador charters can take you to catch the biggest meanest fish in the ocean.
