Top Fishing Charters in Hampton

Fishing in Hampton

Hampton, VA, fishing charters offer you the chance to explore a range of hunting grounds. Hit the James River, Chesapeake Bay, or deep seas offshore, and get your hands on some prized fish. Whatever you choose, you’re in for an incredible day of fishing.
 
Hampton fishing charters are run by professional guides who promise to get you on the fish, and to help you land the fish you’ve always dreamed of. Try it out and see for yourself! 
 
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. Learn how to cast and bottom fish for a range of delicious species, while those of you with more experience can be sure to fill the boat. Go after Seabass, Trout, Fluke, Drum, Tautog, and many more, as you spend anywhere from four hours to a whole day on the water. 
 
When summer hits, you’ll have an even bigger dilemma over where to go. The nearshore wrecks attract some enticing Cobia and Amberjacks for you to do battle with. Target these by trolling or bottom fishing, and spend a full day living out your fishing fantasies. 

Rules & Regulations

If you’re fishing with a licensed charter operator, then you won’t need to worry about fishing licenses – your professional guide will have you covered. They’ll also know everything about bag limits, so you can make sure you abide by the law.

Hampton Fishing Seasons

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.
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.
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. 
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. 
Marlin, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, and Tuna are all on the offshore menu in summer, giving you the chance to head offshore for a fishing adventure like never before. Spend hours on end at sea and make the most of it. 
While some pelagics are making their way to warmer waters as the weather threatens to change, warm-blooded Yellowfin and Bluefin Tuna are here to stay. Battle these beasts and land plenty of meat. 
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. 
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.

"YOU WILL BE DELIGHTED IF YOU GO OUT WITH FISH TALES SPORTFISHING"

Ted P. fished with Fish Tales Sportfishing on August 17, 2019

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.
