Anglers wanting to experience saltwater fishing in Virginia will find a wide range of saltwater fishing charters, head boats, and local guides.
Virginia charter boat captains offer inshore saltwater fishing trips in hopes of catching flounder, striped bass, cobia, red drum, black drum, seatrout, croaker, spot, bluefish, and others. Farther off the coast, charter boats pursue tuna, marlin, dolphin fish, wahoo, king mackerel, sharks, bluefish, black sea bass, tautog, grouper, tilefish, and other sport fish.
In addition to Atlantic Ocean and Chesapeake Bay fishing, Virginia guides offer a variety of specialized services. These include shallow water fishing in coastal bays, creeks, rivers, and other waterways. Some of the more unique adventures include crabbing, clamming, guided kayak fishing, bow fishing for rays and other species, live baiting blue catfish, tarpon fishing, and other one-of-a-kind experiences.
