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!

Just know fishing can go either way. Some days you hit the jackpot, and other days you just catch some fish. But, a bad day fishing beats a good day at work, every time. Enjoy the ocean, forget the cell phone except to take photos, and have a relaxing day.
