Fishing in Lynnhaven Inlet

Tucked away in the north of Virginia Beach, Lynnhaven Inlet gives you access to inshore, nearshore, and deepwater fishing. Come aboard a charter and experience the best of both worlds, fighting it out with some of the Atlantic’s most cherished creatures.
 
In the creeks and around the islands in the inlet itself, you’ll have the chance to test your bottom fishing skills in the shallow waters. Seabass, Flounder, Tautog, Trout, Drum, and many more provide for a thrilling encounter with plenty of delicious rewards. 
 
Head a little further out, and there’s not an angler in the world who won’t envy you. Explore the Chesapeake Bay and go after monster Rockfish (Striped Bass) year-round, along with Mackerel, and other tasty beasts. Hit the reefs in the Atlantic, and you could even land yourself a Cobia or Amberjack. And the beauty of it? This can all be done within just a four-hour trip!
 
The more adventurous among you, though, may relish the chance to go offshore. Spend anywhere from 10 to 14 hours in the heart of the Atlantic going up against pelagic monsters like Yellowfin and Bluefin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Marlin, Sailfish, and even the elusive Tilefish. Get ready for some serious lifting, and experience fishing like never before!

Lynnhaven Inlet Fishing Seasons

Escape the winter blues with a fantastic fishing adventure. Hit the Chesapeake Bay and go after some monster Rockfish and test your fishing skills while everyone else is waiting for the season to kick off. 
While all the other fish are hiding from the cold, the strong Rockfish is still braving the elements, giving you the chance to work up a sweat and land a prized treat to take home for a warming dinner. 
More and more boats start to make their way out to the water, as every serious angler starts warming up for the season. Go after Trout inshore, Rockfish nearshore, and get a headstart on the rest. 
You’ll feel the fishing really get going in Lynnhaven Inlet come April, with the inshore fishing offering up plenty of Black and Red Drum, while Yellowfin and Bluefin Tuna start showing up offshore. 
With the better weather comes better fishing conditions, and you can choose between an inshore trip to go after monster Drums or an offshore adventure to land some delicious Tuna to fill the freezer. 
Cobia joins the nearshore party to add an extra dimension to the dilemma of where to go fishing in summer. Hit the nearshore wrecks, the inshore shallows, or deep waters offshore, and tackle ‘em all. 
There’s a reason why Virginia Beach’s annual Marlin Tournament takes place in July. Get offshore and join the pros in pursuit of this trophy fish, on what promises to be a fishing trip like never before.
There’s no letting up in the hunt for Billfish out in the Atlantic, with the Virginia Beach Billfish Tournament attracting anglers from all over the world. But don’t miss out on the Cobia and Drum fishing too!
While the kids may have gone back to school, there’s no sign of the fish disappearing anytime soon. Head on a specific charter out of Lynnhaven Inlet to hunt Tuna and take advantage of their peak season.

As the weather starts to turn, you’ll see fewer and fewer anglers on the water. But don’t be fooled. Rockfish return to the fold, with Fluke, Tautog, Seabass, and Trout providing plenty of support inshore.

Catch the last of the true inshore season before the fish go into hiding for the winter. Hit the creeks bays and go after a range of exciting and delicious fish to test your fishing skills and take home for a treat.
It’s slim pickings for the most part come December, but you can still find some Rockfish hanging around the shallow waters. Get your fish on and land something delicious to warm up over the holidays.
