Wherever you go, you’re in for a treat. Experienced anglers will relish the chance to spend up to 14 hours on the water, going after some monster creatures. An offshore trip will see you come up against Yellowfin and Bluefin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Marlin, and even Sailfish. Get ready for the fight of your life as you look to hook the catch of a lifetime. 
 
If you’re fishing for the first time, then the calmer river and bay are great places to start.

While it may not seem like the best time to get out on the water, January still sees plenty of anglers going after Rockfish in the Chesapeake. Join ‘em and keep warm with some thrilling fishing action.
February
The number of charters willing to take you on a trip to sea are few and far between. If you’re lucky enough, however, you may be able to head to the bay in search of prized Rockfish as you warm up for the season.
March
It’s definitely time to flex your muscles and prepare for the upcoming season come March. Get out on the inshore waters and take advantage of the returning Trout population along with plenty of Rockfish.

If you’re not out on the water already, then you’re just wasting your time. Hit the river and the bays in search of delicious inshore creatures, with Drum adding to the star-studded cast of fish to target. 
May
You’ll really feel things starting to hit their stride come May, with the inshore fishing heating up and some offshore fishing possible too. Go after monster Red and Black Drums inshore, or target Tuna in the deep.

Since 1967, the Hampton Jazz Festival has lit up the seashore every June and this year is no different. Come and join the fun after a thrilling day of fishing, as peak season is upon Virginia in summer.

While the inshore and nearshore fishing is as good as ever, you’ll want to make the most of the deep sea opportunities in summer. Head offshore and battle it out with some serious Billfish for a trophy catch.

October
It’s finally time to bid farewell to big game fishing, but there’s plenty to keep you on your toes inshore. Go after delicious Seabass, Trout, Fluke, Tautog, Rockfish, and many more, as you test your bottom fishing skills. 
November
With the cold weather just around the corner, you’ll need to hurry to get your fill of such a range of exciting and delicious fish. Fill the boat with some inshore and nearshore beauties before it’s too late.

Most charter operators shut up shop for winter, but there’s still some fish to be caught. If you find someone to take you out, then you’ll be targeting Rockfish for some end of year fun and delicious rewards.

I was amazed at the marine life in the Hampton area of the Chesapeake Bay. I saw more fish of various species in one day than I could have imagined. Red and black drum, spade fish, cobia, sheepshead, cutlassfish, dolphins (by the dozens), and even a sea turtle up close to the boat. The Bay water was beautiful, clean, and clear. If you ever go out once, you will be hooked for life.
