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!

What anglers said about Deep Sea Fishing in Virginia Beach

Just remember it's for fun and there is no magic wand a Captian and crew can wave to make the fish bite. So if the fish don't cooperate then just enjoy the ride and the view and have fun.

To remember it's up to the fish whether they're going to bite or not they're not it's not the captain or the 1st mate are captain and 1st mate were great. Our captain tried very hard to put us on fish. The captain and 1st mate were a pleasure to be around and work with.

To hot at current time for anything reliable catching, east coast is in a heat wave. It may be better at other times or in different years just not the time we went.

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.

Check the weather first to plan a booking for charter fishing. Read all about motion sickness to prep for it so that you could enjoy your day.

Be patient and ready to fight fish no matter where you go, because fishing off VA coast is as good as it gets. Keep in mind there’s nothing you can do about weather, but you can still have a good time.

Do your research and watch the weather forecast. If it’s especially windy you might not be able to get out onto the bigger water

When the weather is fair the experience out on the water is excellent. The actual fishing is slower than during the spring and summer. There is enough action to make the experience worthwhile. We caught three tautaug on our outing. They were delicious.
