Top Notch Charters offers inshore and nearshore trips, catching a variety of species off the coast of Virginia Beach. If you want to spend a memorable time on the water with your family and friends, or just want to dive into pro fishing, the crew has something for you.
Your host for the day is Captain Russ. He’s been fishing for over 3 decades, and will accommodate you and your fellow anglers aboard his 53’ offshore sportfishing boat of custom make. It can take up to 6 anglers, and comes equipped with outriggers, latest electronics, GPS, a fishfinder, flybridge, ice box, and live bait well. She also offers a bed, toilet, microwave, and a fridge.
You will go fishing for Cobia, Redfish, Bluefish, or Sharks. Depending on the season, you might see other big fish swim nearby. You will go trolling, or anchor your boat near one of the hot spots and try to lure the fish, spinning and drift fishing.
You will get rods, reels, and tackle once you step onboard. The fishing license is included in the trips rates. The first mate will work to make your trip enjoyable. A gratuity of 15–20% is gladly accepted.
As you set out, you will first go and catch some live bait, usually small Bluefish. You will then go after the main prize. The trips are great for novice fishermen who want to see how angling works, or families with kids looking for a nice activity outdoors.
Bring snacks, and drinks, pack your sunscreen, shades, a cap. Take your camera, and come along for a day of fun with Top Notch Charters!
