Virginia beach inshore fishing charters

After a couple days of bad weather, we were finally able to get some good fishing weather on Saturday to get an inshore fishing charter in yesterday out of Rudee Inlet in Virginia Beach. The fishing was a little slow in the morning and we had just a couple bluefish, but as it warmed up the spadefish started biting and we we ended the day with a really nice catch of spadefish and spanish mackerel. This is the first nice catch of spadefish we have been able to make in 2015 using a hook and line. These spades will typically bite until sometime in July and we catch catch spadefish on a three quarter or full day inshore. We will continue to see numbers pf spadefish, spanish mackerel, bluefish, and sharks increase as waters continue to warm off the coast of Virginia Beach. We are booking inshore fishing trips and offshore fishing trips from rudee inlet for the rest of summer. Give me a call at 757-749-6008 and get your Virginia Beach charter fishing trip booked. Thanks, capt Jake



Virginia Beach shark fishing charter boat

Over the last couple days, we have had some really great shark fishing charter trips. We were able to locate a dead whale carcass floating in the offshore waters off Virginia Beach. The whale has obviously been dead for a long time and has been floating around stinking up and chumming the waters for a long time. There were tons of sharks around the whale carcass and we caught a lot of sharks including big blue sharks, big tiger sharks, and we were even able to release a fifteen foot long great white shark. I have never caught a great white before and it was really an awesome experience. This fish was huge and made a really awesome bite on our bait right beside the boat. This shark fishing was pretty incredible and a really good start to the season for us. 

There have also been plenty of tuna in the offshore waters off Virginia Beach right now. The waters are warming and an eddy has spun off the gulf stream and pushed good conditions for tuna fishing right off the coast of Virginia. Give us a call today and book an offshore fishing trip to go catch tuna. 

Inshore the fishing is really starting to get going. We are catching good numbers of red drum sight casting and there have been plenty of cobias around in the waters off Virginia Beach as well. The fishing for spadefish is getting started and should really get going good over the next week or two on the inshore reefs and wrecks off Virginia Beach. Any day we will also see good numbers of sharks and spanish mackerel showing up on our inshore trips as well. 

We are currently booking inshore charter fishing trips and offshore charter fishing trips out of rudee inlet in Virginia Beach. The fishing is really getting going now and if you want to go on a charter fishing tirp, now is the time to book. Toursit season hasnt started in Virginia Beach yet and if you want a prime date on a weekend, now is the time to book. Give me a call today at 7577496008 and we will get you booked, thanks Capt. Jake



Virginia Beach half day charter boat fishing report

It the end of May and the inshore fishing is really starting to get good for our inshore fishing charters in Virginia Beach. Over the last week, we have seen the inshore fishing get increasingly better for several species. Cobia, spanish mackerel, schools of red drum, spadefish, and sharks are all present now off the coast of Virginia Beach. The weather has hurt us a little bit over the last couple days because the sustained south wind has created upwelling and cooled the waters off, but nonetheless the fish are still here and theres some very good fishing inshore most days. We are looking forward to these fish continuing to arrive in numbers and we are ready for the summer inshore charter fishing season out of Virginia Beach. For inshore charter fishing trips in Virginia Beach, we are currently booking half day inshore trips for $550, 3/4 day inshore trips for $800, and full day inshore trips for $1000. All of our Virginia Beach inshore charter fishing trips arrive and depart from the Virginia Beach fishing center in Rudee inlet in Virginia Beach. We are available anytime and can take up to six people per trip. We are also booking offshore fishing charters, deep sea fishing charters, shark fishing charters, and deep drop fishing charters. Give me a call at 757-749-6008 Thanks capt. Jake. Heres some recent pics from some of our Virginia beach inshore fishing charters:



Inshore fishing charter boat report Virginia Beach

Today on Matador Charters, we did a 3/4 day inshore fishing charter out of Rudee Inlet in Virginia Beach fishing for drum. We started out fishing  for black drum and hit the tide just right. From the time we anchored up and for a long while we caught several black drum, keeping a few for dinner and we also caught a 100 plus pound stingray and a 13 pound 4 ounce sheepshead- big enough for a virginia citation. The tide slowed down and so did the black drum bite, so we moved along a tried something else. 

I got a call that there were schools of big red drum (redfish) swimming around out off the Virginia Beach resort area and we went over and caught several big red drum sight casting. Everyone on our charter released a red drum and we finished the charter with everyone having a citation for the trip. The drum fishing is VERY good out of virginia beach right now. 

Offshore, we are seeing very good catches of bottomfish and sharks and any day we will see the tuna show up in the offshore waters out of Virginia Beach. 

We are currently booking both inshore fishing charters and offshore fishing charters and will be fishing out of rudee inlet in Virginia Beach for the rest of the summer. Give me a call at 7577496008 and we will get your Virginia Beach charter fishing trip set up. Thanks, Capt. Jake

On sunday, we did an full day inshore fishing charter out of rudee inlet in Virginia Beach to go chase after drums at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay by the Eastern Shore. The fishing was fairly slow but we had some good quality bites. The drum fishing is very good right now and both red drum and black drum can be caught on inshore fishing charter boats from Virginia Beach right now. This fishing should continue for the next couple weeks. Soon the water will warm and the drum fishing will slow down but when the drum slow down sharks, cobia, and spanish mackerel will take their place. We look forward to a good summer charter fishing season out of Rudee Inlet in Virginia Beach with Matador charters.
