Reel Fish’N charters cruise the bountiful waters around Virginia Beach with one clear goal: to catch a LOT of fish! Captain Brandon Cook and his crew run trips in Chesapeake Bay, as well as exploring the local offshore wrecks, for a huge host of world-famous fish such as Flounder, Mahi Mahi, Rockfish, Tautog and Black Drum, as well as plenty of other tasty species!

Capt. Brandon has spent years exploring waters all over the world, from India, to Japan, to the Atlantic’s diverse fishing grounds. Along with his skilled first mate, he’ll pull out all the stops to make your trip super special. Whether you want to stay closer to shore to reel in your catch, or head up to 60 miles out for the chance to land some huge deep sea species, they’ll be on hand to make sure your day on the water is fun and productive.

You’ll be traveling onboard a 23’ Sea Fox center console. She can accommodate up to 5 guests, and is equipped with a 200 HP Suzuki engine to get you onto the hotspots as efficiently as possible. Onboard, you’ll find top-of-the-line navigational gear, such as GPS and fishfinder, as well as life jackets and outriggers for maximum trolling potential. There’s also an ice box to keep your catch fresh.

Capt. Brandon and his crew know this area like the backs of their hands, and will always have a trick up their sleeves to make sure that you come home with a barrel-full of fish – and have a barrel-full of laughs while you’re out, too! If you choose to explore the wrecks of Chesapeake Bay, you’ll have the chance to reel in Flounder, Spadefish, Tautog, and more. If you head further offshore, get ready to reel in gigantic Black Seabass, Yellowfin Tuna, and the mighty Mahi Mahi.

Your trip includes top-notch rods and reels, light and heavy tackle, live and artificial bait, and a valid fishing license for all guests. You’ll also be treated to snacks, drinks, and lunch – fishing is hungry work, after all. Come aboard Reel Fish’N and get ready to reel ‘em in!
