Island Marine & Charter Fishing – 42'

Running angling trips out of Colonial Beach, Island Marine & Charter Fishing invites you to check out the local fishery in style.

Come on aboard with Capt. Wes, whose main priority is to get you on some fish. Expect to use techniques like bottom fishing, trolling, jigging, and spinning, based on the species you’re targeting. Speaking of which, you have the option of 6-hour trips, where you’ll be fishing for the likes of Perch, Catfish, Spanish Mackerel, Bass, and Cobia, depending on the specific season and the day’s weather.

Your boat for the day will be a 42’ Robbins that fits up to 12 anglers at any one time. The boat comes with a toilet and ice box. The price of your trip includes all the rods, reels, and terminal tackle you’ll need for a productive day on the water. The captain will supply all the needed fishing licenses for your trip.

You’ll be able to keep any legal species caught during the trip. Capt. Wes runs trips together with his first mate, who’s there to help you with whatever you may need. Tips are always appreciated for a job well done.

This is a children-friendly charter, so you’re welcome to bring your kids on for a fun fishing adventure.
