Fishing in Virginia Beach
With its modern marinas and easy access to
the ocean and bay, Virginia Beach is the perfect departure
point for a day on the water. Deep sea fishing for yellowfin tuna,
marlin, amberjack and wahoo is a popular sport for both the experienced
and novice angler.
North America's largest and most productive estuary,
the Chesapeake Bay teems with striped bass, flounder, tautog and spot –
as well as oysters, shrimp and crab.
Virginia Beach also hosts the annual
Striped Bass World Championship each November through December.
This tournament offers thousands of dollars in cash and prizes to both locals and visitors.
Surf Fishing With the food-rich Chesapeake Bay meeting the Atlantic Ocean, Virginia Beach and its neighboring waters are home to a multitude of fishing opportunities. Charter a boat for a day. Or just cast a line from the beach or one of four piers.
