Weldon Striper Fishing

Fingeance Sportfishing is dedicated to Roanoke river fishing where the fish are plentiful and the nature is wild. This is where they will take you. Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean you can’t warm yourself up on some great Striper and Shad fishing! The Catfishing is great too in the Roanoke, and it will fill your coolers up!

The charter is operated by Captain Joey VanDyke who is not your usual captain. With a 4-year college degree in Aquaculture and AG Science, and years of fishing experience under his belt, he will show you a great time on the water and teach you about the marine life.

You will be fishing aboard his 24’ Carolina skiff performance fishing boat, powered by a 150 HP Honda engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 35 knots. This speedy boat is wide enough for 4 people who can all ride and fish in comfort. It contains the latest electronics being restored in 2015, and all the safety equipment you’ll need.

Capt. Joey will take you fishing on the infamous Roanoke River for wintertime school-sized Stripers on light tackle. You can catch multiple numbers as they migrate up the Roanoke River to their traditional spawning grounds.

You can also do winter Shad fishing charters on fly rods and light tackle as they migrate up the local rivers to spawn, too. Other species in the river include Crappie, Yellow Perch and Catfish.

What are you waiting for? Join Fingeance Sportfishing today and have your winter fishing adventure!

Captan Joey VanDyke has been fishing since he was just a little boy, his love for the water formed his full time occupation of fishing for a living. He started his career fishing in 1985 mating on offshore boats and continued through the summers until he graduated college and turned it to full time year round fishing. He fishes the rivers and the saltwaters, and knows exactly where to go to find fish. He is a calm and patient person who loves taking kids out and teaching them about the fisheries and how to preserve them. Captain Joey prides himself in knowing and learning all about fish by studying their feeding habits, habitats, growth cycles, and life cycles.
