  1. Yesterday
  2. We got a family trip in this afternoon for these guys and it was a beautiful day. The Flounder bight is still a bit slow, caught 7 and managed to get 2 nice keepers up to 22 inches. We caught a Cobia today but it was under the 40 min size limit and released. Hooked up several Sharks today and we also caught a variety of the other stuff as well like Grey Triggerfish, Skates, Oyster Toads, Seabass, Trout, Roundhead and lots of Croaker. It was a fun day. Another beautiful day on the Chesapeake Bay.
  3. We had our Hard Core Fishing Couple on board again today for her Birthday Fishing trip. They have been married for 49 soon to be 50 years and love to fish together. This young lady of 86 years and her husband love to go fishing every year with us. A beautiful morning with calm seas was perfect for this couple. They caught 7 nice Flounder today up to 22 inches. We also caught lot of Skates and Oyster Toads, little Black Seabass and Croaker. It was another fun day with these guys as usual, and a beautiful day on the Chesapeake Bay.

  9. Last week
  10. Fished the Canyon on June 17, 2018. Very pretty water and great sea conditions. Caught decent size mahi and a mako throughout the day but no tuna. Water temp at the Canyon was 72-74 degrees.
  11. By TH Spangler | Connie Barbour There are plenty of options for Virginia saltwater anglers this time of year! Spadefish and sheepshead are on structure now. Most of the big spades are coming from the Chesapeake Light Tower. An 11-pound fish was weighed in this week. 9 pounds is the minimum size for state trophy … Continue reading The post Virginia Saltwater A Lot Of Options appeared first on Virginia Beach Fishing.

  13. By Dr. Ken Neill, III Peninsula Salt Water Sport Fisherman’s Association Member Cobia have arrived in the bay in force. Fishing has been good for both chummers and sight fishermen. While cobia are getting most of the inshore buzz, red drum fishing remains excellent on the shoals at the mouth of the bay. Schools of … Continue reading The post Virginia Beach Saltwater Fishing Report appeared first on Virginia Beach Fishing. View the full article

  16. The hot weather is here and the summer fishing pattern is setting up in Virginia waters. The cobia season is open and anglers are catching. Both chumming and sight casting is working! Anglers sight-fishing for cobia are also seeing large schools of red drum. Even prior to the season opening numerous trophy cobia release citations … Continue reading The post Virginia Saltwater Fishing Report | Cobia | Red Drum appeared first on Virginia Beach Fishing.

  17. When the wind blew it blew hard in all directions with short interludes of calm seas. Near the end of May the weather started to get more stable like it’s trying to get into a summer pattern, then Tropical Strom Alberto hits Florida and gives us tons of rain for the tail end of May. The Tog season was extended to May 15th giving us two more weeks to catch them up. The Croaker started bighting good around the middle of May. Flounder bight was tough but a few nice fish were caught, our largest for May was 18 inches. The Flounder bite picked up real good June 1st last year and got better as the water warmed up. Red Drum have been cruising into the Bay coming up the coast real good the last couple of weeks along with the Cobia. Cobia season opens June 1st this year. Here is a picture of a Citation Red Drum we caught. Overall we had Lots of fun with Great People.

  19. We were blessed with the wind laying down giving us some fishable weather. We took advantage of this and did some Striper fishing. It was a finicky bite, but there was plenty of nibblers to steel our baits. We kept our limit of really nice sized Stripers.
  20. We had friends and family get out fishing with us this weekend. The forecast was sketchy at best but managed to take advantage of the Red Drum. Lots of fun.

    Happy Memorial Day and thanks,Vets! Have not started saltwater yet. I did have my best freshwater season I can remember, though... Crappie have been off the charts since January. Have released bluegill, red ear sunfish,crappie, and carp citations this spring. I did not fish for blue catfish but maybe 5 times this winter as the pan fishing has been too good to pass! Anyway, have a good summer and will see you on the beach most any time now. BA Oh...white perch are everywhere...
  23. By TH Spangler | Connie Barbour As Memorial Day rapidly approaches the spring saltwater fishery continues to improve almost everywhere. Sheepshead are hanging around the CBBT pilings and other structure in the lower bay. Red and black drum are plentiful on bay shoals near the eastern shore. Cobia have enter our waters but our season … Continue reading The post Virginia Beach Memorial Day Fishing Report appeared first on Virginia Beach Fishing. View the full article
  24. By TH Spangler | Connie Barbour The first cobias of the season have entered Virgina waters. Anglers targeting drum have caught-and-releases a few. Looks like there will be plenty around when the Virginia season opens June 1. Our cobia season should peak around the same time as the Monarch Cobia Classic, scheduled for July 19-21. … Continue reading The post Cobia Are Here! appeared first on Virginia Beach Fishing.

Red and black drum are here in numbers and fishing for them … Continue reading The post Virginia | Outer Banks NC | Saltwater Fishing Report appeared first on Virginia Beach Fishing.

  27. Thanks for the report. When you get him be sure and email us a picture @ webmaster@vbsf.net. Will post it on our fishing report.
  28. Fished the back end of Fisherman's Island just behind the breakers in about 17ft of water from mid-morning through early evening last Saturday with no luck other than skates and sharks. Saw a handful of other boats come and go with none having any luck. Used crab, clam and shrimp. Boarded by Coast Guard for inspection and they also mentioned it seemed that no one else around us was having luck that day. Picked up and headed back in around 1800 after wind kept getting stronger and bringing colder weather so we didn't get to see if the night bite hit. Anyone else have any luck around any of the shoals?
