61 pound Virginia beach striped bass

On wednesday we had another full day striper fishing charter out of Rudee inlet in Virginia Beach. Matador Charters has been running way up into the waters of the chesapeake bay on on our striper fishing charters and we have been doing light tackle live bait fishing for trophy rockfish, we have had some pretty great results with several trophy stripers landed over 40 pounds. On wednesday, we caught a really huge one at 61 pounds. It was really an incredible fish and there are still big trophy rockfish there and ready to be caught. Matador charters has plenty of charter fishing dates available and we can get you out there. We are only booking full day inshore trips for striped bass right now.

Va Beach Striper fishing charter boat

We have really had some gorgeous weather lately here in Virginia Beach and been doing a lot of fishing. Most of our fishing efforts are targeted at striped bass fishing in the chesapeake bay with live baits and we have been having very good success recently. There are lots of schoolie sized rockfish up there as well as some really nice trophy sized stripers. This week we had some really nice catches of striped bass and whenever the weather is nice, we look forward to getting you out there to get in on the action. We are currently booking full day inshore only for stripers out of rudee inlet. The fish are far away and we cannot get to where the fish are on a half or 3/4 day. Sorry Ocean rockfish will be here soon, so we should have some action in January after the bay season closes. Give me a call at 757-749-6008 and we will get you booked. Thanks, capt Jake

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.

Virginia Beach Charter Fishing Fall Update

Its fall now. Its the time of year when all the kids have gone back to school. Summer vacation is over. Everyone is hard at work. The weather is getting cooler. But the fall is also one of the best times of year to take a charter fishing trip out of Rudee Inlet in Virginia Beach. We have lots of fish around to catch right now and the fishing can be very good this time of year, both for our inshore fishing charters and our offshore fishing charters. 

Offshore fishing charters are seeing really great action from wahoo and dolphin right now as well as some yellowfin tuna. There is still plenty of warm water in our offshore waters here and we are still seeing a handful of marlin around. The tuna fishing for yellowfin tuna should improve with each passing cold front and as warm water eddies begin to spin off the gulf stream we should see some really great fall yellowfin tuna fishing out of Rudee Inlet in Virginia Beach. Bluefin tuna can also begin to make an appearance any time now, but the best bite for bluefins should start in a couple weeks. 

Offshore deep drop fishing charters can also be very productive in the fall. We have plenty of blueline tilefish, golden tilefish, grouper, rosefish, and black sea bass season just opened yesterday. If you want a box full of fish that are good to eat and plenty of action cranking fish all day, deep drop fishing charters are the ticket.

Inshore fishing is also excellent this time of year. On the wrecks we can find flounder, tautog, black sea bass, triggerfish, and even some chopper bluefish on full day inshore fishing charters. Also on full day inshore fishing charters there are plenty of red drum in the bay. there are also some flounder and tautog. Our half day inshore trips are still catching bluefish off the Virginia beach oceanfront and we are seeing plenty of speckled trout, some puppy drum, and flounder around rudee inlet. Striped bass aka rockfish aka stripers are in season and as the waters cool, stripers should show up any time.

We have PLENTY of dates available for inshore and offshore fishing charters out of Virginia Beach. We are also currently booking charters for the summer of 2016 from rudee inlet in Virginia Beach. Give me a call at 7577496008 and we will get your charter fishing trip booked. Thanks, capt. Jake
