Spend a memorable fishing day with Marcia B Sportfishing and explore the productive waters of Virginia Beach! Let Captain Kurt Ward take you where the fish hide and then it’s your time to shine on the rod. Your guide is a fishing tournament veteran and an expert in finding the catch and making sure it takes your bait.

You will head out to your fishing expedition on a 42’ Provincial that offers plenty of deck space where up to 6 people can fish at the same time. The vessel is rigged with a 450 HP Cummins engine and is a stable fishing platform.

There’s an enclosed toilet on board, along with indispensable gear like outriggers, a livewell, and navigational electronics. There’s more than enough space to relax in the shade when you want to take cover from the sun and take a break. Capt. Kurt will provide all the fishing equipment.

Virginia Beach waters are abundant in a variety of species, but Spanish Mackerel, Cobia, Redfish, small sharks, Flounder, and King Mackerel are the most frequent catches.

From the beginning of June until mid-September, you will be prowling the inshore waters for the best bite of the day. After you’re back to shore, you can get your catch cleaned and filleted for a small additional charge.

Kids are more than welcome to join your fishing expedition with Marcia B Sportfishing, and all ages can come aboard to enjoy these waters. Pack your snacks and drinks and Capt. Kurt will organize a successful and fun fishing trip to remember!

Member since March 2019
I started fishing professionally at the age of 17 when I took a position on a sportfishing boat out of Hatteras and Virginia Beach. During my time of competitive fishing, I traveled all over the world, until settling into my own business as a commercial fisherman. With over 18 years of experience, I have gained a vast knowledge of the local waters from Virginia to North Carolina.
