Knot Wish'n Custom Charters

Knot Wish’n Custom Charters is an inshore light tackle specialist guide service operating out of Virginia Beach, VA. Climb aboard for a fun-filled, affordable fishing trip with a friendly atmosphere and an experienced guide. Step back to shore with a cooler-full of fish and a heartful of great memories!

Your boat for the day will be a 23’ Parker center console. This sturdy vessel is perfect for family groups thanks to her high sides and makes for a stable ride both at speed and when fishing. She has room aboard for up to six guests, so bring all your friends and family along!

The boat has GPS, fishfinder, and Captain Todd Beck’s three decades of local knowledge guiding you to the best spots. Once you get there, outriggers will give you a perfect trolling spread while a livewell keeps your baitfish fresh on live baiting trips.

Capt. Todd specializes in short, family-friendly charters going after tasty fish like Trout, Redfish, Striped Bass, and Mackerel. If you’re looking for something more hard-hitting, just let him know. You can target Cobia, Bull Redfish and King Mackerel depending on the season.

Whatever you’re after, Knot Wish’n Custom Charters are, well, custom! You can choose what you want for your day. And with three different starting times, you can also choose when you go. Just bring your food, drinks, and any other personal items and get ready for a great fishing trip.
