Hooking Up Anglers Since 2011.
Virginia Beach is the known for having the longest pleasure beach in the world, but also for world class fishing. Each year the Chesapeake Bay brings huge schools of Atlantic Croaker to the inlet during the summer and a favorite target among many fishermen. The world record Atlantic Croaker, 8 pounds and 11 ounces, was caught in the bay in 2007, and there have many other horse sized croaker caught in the area. With great fishing in the Chesapeake Bay and easy access to the warm waters of the Gulf Stream, Virginia Beach offers a variety of different species of fish year round.
Inshore fishing is also excellent during the winter for Striped Bass, or Rockfish as the locals call them. Fishing around the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel (CBBT) is a favorite spot to soak and eel or troll a mojo for these hard fighting stripers. As it gets colder, the fish move out to the ocean and many are caught along the beaches.
More frequent in recent years, large schools of Bluefin Tuna have been found off of Cape Henry in late January or early February. With many anglers fishing for rockfish with smaller gear, several have complained about being spooled by these larger fish. Other inshore and nearshore species that can be found in these waters include Bluefish, Flounder, King Mackerel, Red Drum, Spanish Mackerel, Speckled Trout, and Tautog.
Offshore fishing Virginia Beach can produce a variety of different sharks, including the tasty Mako Shark. There are also many Blue and White Marlin that move through during the summer months, along with the Mahi-mahi (Dolphifish). Out deep in the canyons, good catches of Bigeye and Yellowfin Tuna can be found. Deep dropping for Tilefish and Grouper are also a popular pastime.
