Backlash Sportfishing

200 Winston Salem Avenue
Virginia Beach VA, United States

Come fish aboard the Backlash, a 56 ft custom built Carolina boat that can take up to 6 people out in pure luxury.  Whether you want to fish for a full day or a half day, offshore or nearshore, Backlash Sportfishing will accommodate your needs. You will be fishing one of the most underrated fishing grounds on the East Coast, which is only just starting to be recognized for its outstanding fishing during the summer months and great fishing that extends right into early Fall.

The Backlash is equipped with all the latest equipment used to catch a variety of fish. As well as being full of fishing gear, inside, it is more like a yacht than a fishing boat. You will find huge flatscreen satellite TVs waiting for you - sit back and enjoy the ride to the fishing grounds in style. With two bathrooms, two showers, three staterooms, and excellent living conditions, this is a boat to remember.

Captain Steve Richardson is at the helm of Backlash. Steve has been fishing the waters off VA and NC since he was a young boy and you will find no one better qualified in the Atlantic region to catch you the fish of a lifetime.  Capt. Steve has won his fair share of tournaments on the East coast including winning the 2015 White Marlin Open. Whether you are fishing for the elusive Blue Marlin, or are hoping to experience the hot White Marlin action in August and September, or wish to target Tuna, Mahi, or bottom fish, Capt Steve will put you on your chosen fish for sure.

The crew on the Backlash will see to your every need while on the water, while also offering you their vast knowledge of local fishing and entertaining personalities! If you are looking for a bucket list trip with the chance to catch the fish of a lifetime, this is the boat for you.

Everything necessary for you to enjoy great fishing out on the waters off Virginia Beach is provided including fishing licenses.  The only thing you need to bring is what you want to eat and drink and of course a hat, sunglasses and sunscree

About the Captain

Steve Richardson
Virginia Beach, Virginia, United States
Member since July 2015
My father ran one of the first Charter boats out of Virginia Beach. My brother and I have been fishing from a very young age and we both love the sport. I am a USCG Licensed Master Captain and I have fished extensively along the East Coast, the Bahamas, Bermuda, Turks and Caicos, St. Thomas and many other islands in the Caribbean. I love the competitive camaraderie of the fishing world. We are a tight knit group here in the Mid-Atlantic. Virginia Beach is a great spot to fish. There is nothing better than hooking up to a big Blue Marlin in the morning, catching some Whites in the mid-day and trolling for Bigeyes late in the afternoon. This is truly one of the best places to fish in the world and I'm very fortunate to be a part of it.
