Robbie Bryan is an enthusiastic captain. He was raised in Virginia Beach and knows the local waters like the back of his hand. Robbie is familiar with the methods that work best to make a great catch possible and knows where the fish are hiding. The captain specializes in fishing the bay and the offshore wrecks. He enjoys sharing his passion for the ocean and the vast knowledge with his clients and friends. I love going out and loading the boat with yellow fins, dolphins, and tile fish. Book me and I promise to load the box full.
