What anglers said about fishing in Chincoteague Island

Try to come out when it is not as windy. It reduces waves. Understand, though you may not catch what you aim for or expect, it is still a fun experience.

Check the tides and find a reputable captain who's hooked into the local fishing spots. Great place and time of year to fish in the bay or from the piers. My favorite place overall!

The captain and first mate were great. The fish didn’t want to cooperate fully but fish were caught by everyone aboard. Seeing the crab pots worked and then going into the flat to dig clams were also good experiences. So don’t be afraid of trying the afternoon adventure.

It was thought to catch what we were looking for. The Captain and mate were upfront with the possibility of not catching targeted fish due to weather. But we still had fun and enjoyed the trip.

Chincoteague has all of the charm of a small beach town island without the presumptuous and stiffy entitlement that comes along with many other beach towns. The fisherman of Chincoteague are salt of the Earth type people who are kind, helpful, and will bend over backward to make your day on the water memorable!

I have fished Chincoteague from pier, shore, rented boat, and by charter. If you are looking to be on the fish quickly go with a local charter like Captain Tim of Chincoteague Bay Adventures. He knows where the fish are and what baits are working. You will spend less time fishing and more time catching!

If you are just looking for flounder try to make your trip early in the year. Around April/May. It’s cold then but the fish seem to be a little more plentiful.

End of season fishing for flounder water is getting too warm and a storm kicked up the bay but we caught some small striped bass(rock), sea trout and spot. But what a surprise when I hooked a 4 ft. Dusky Shark which really put up quite a fight. I had never experienced anything quite like that and Captain Tim talked me through it until I finally got the shark to the side of the boat for him to lift into the boat ...Wow!!

Sharks were biting the best this morning, there were storms the week before we arrived. So I believe the water was a bit chilly. Was fun fighting sharks though!

On top of sunscreen and a small cooler, bring a gym towel for your face and hands. If going clamming, extra socks and a pair of sandals for after.
