Deep Sea Fishing in Virginia Beach

Deep sea fishing Virginia Beach is a favorite pastime for hundreds of local captains and anglers from all over the country. Its waters offer some of the best saltwater fishing in the mid-Atlantic. There are scattered debris, bottom structures, canyons, underwater aircrafts, and shipwrecks with just myriads of exciting fish species.

Where to go and what to catch

A Virginia Beach offshore charter will take you to the area’s wrecks, underwater canyons, and towers. The Chesapeake Light Tower, for example, is only 13 miles offshore. But if you want to fish farther, bigger, and deeper, head to the famous Gulf Stream and the Norfolk Canyon.

Big predators hang around the steep, rocky walls of the trench. The hungry monsters are just waiting for the currents to get them a meal. There are Swordfish, Sailfish, Kingfish, Blue Marlin, White Marlin, Cobia, and other big boys.

It goes without saying that a deep sea fishing trip in Virginia Beach deserves a full day. Some of the best offshore fishing grounds are 75 miles from ports. It’s also important to find a local captain who knows the area.

When fishing around wrecks and in deep trenches, you will be dropping bait for Golden and Blueline Tilefish, Codfish, Black Seabass, Tautog, Snowy Grouper, and many other delicious species. Rosefish are also around as deep down as 300’. Some of them make great table fare to say the least.

When to go

Go out anytime! In Virginia Beach, deep sea fishing is great year-round. Large schools of Atlantic Spadefish patrol the waters around the Chesapeake Light Tower in late spring. Mako Sharks begin to show up offshore in May. They are just like Billfish, all jumping and leaping. Plus, the areas around towers are full of Mahi Mahi.

Early summer trips will take you to the reefs and wrecks for Amberjack, Coba, and King Mackerel. Tuna can be caught near deep trenches and underwater canyons.

The fall and winter months are great for Tuna, Wahoo, Swordfish, and many more. Check it yourself!
