C Level Sportfishing

Get out into the Atlantic with C Level Sportfishing. Based out of Virginia Beach, you’ll have access to fantastic inshore, nearshore, and offshore fishing. Captain Brian Leonard is a Virginia Beach native and, having fished all over the Atlantic, has returned home. With over 15 years of professional experience behind him, his knowledge of these waters knows no bounds.

Head off aboard a 45’ Ray Davies offshore sportfishing boat, powered by twin 300 HP Detroit Diesel motors. Restored in 2018, she’s a luxury vessel with all home comforts. There’s space for up to 6 people on all trips, with 6 beds provided and plenty of seating. She comes fitted with a kitchen, refrigerator, toilet, air conditioning, and all the safety and navigational equipment needed to keep you safe and on the fish throughout your trip.

On inshore trips, you’ll catch some fish for bait along the way, so you’ll make use of the onboard live bait well. Here, you’ll head up to 10 miles offshore, targeting exciting bottom fish along the reefs and wrecks. Go after delicious and tough-fighting species, inshore and nearshore, such as Spanish Mackerel, Flounder, Spadefish, Cobia, and many more.

You’ll need a little longer on the boat as you head up to 70 miles on offshore trips. You’ll troll the water tops trying to entice a monstrous Marlin, stunning Sailfish, or delicious Tuna or Mahi Mahi. Get ready to spring into action at the bite of these huge fish. You’ll need all your strength to reel them in, so get on the fighting chair and strap yourselves in.

Capt. Brian and his first mate will be happy to answer any questions and to help you reel in that dream catch. C Level Sportfishing brings fishing to life with a passionate service. They take fishing seriously, so only the best Shimano and Penn equipment is used. At the end of the trip, they’ll even prepare your fish to take home at an extra charge. What are you waiting for? Hop aboard today.

Member since December 2018
A Virginia Beach native, Captain Brian has fished the Atlantic from Ocean City, MA, to Miami, FL, and even the Bahamas. He's returned home to join the family business, where his father, Paul, runs C Level Sportfishing. Naturally, Capt. Brian has been fishing his whole life, and by now has over 15 years of professional experience. Running inshore and offshore trips, his biggest catch was a 560 lb Blue Marlin which won him a Marlin tournament, taking him an hour to reel in. While passionate about fishing, he also enjoys spending time with and meeting new people, and Capt. Brian is delighted that this job enables him to get the best of both worlds.
