Boating and Fishing in Virginia Beach - The Best Places to Go?

charter-boatsOk, anglers, time to grab your rods, stock up on bloodworms, and get ready for great fishing. As one of the best places on the East Coast for saltwater fishing and boating, Virginia Beach has many locations to catch striper, trout, and flounder (be sure to check regulations and restrictions.) For a day of fun and fish, visit the Lynnhaven Fishing Pier located at 2350 Starfish Road, right off of Shore Drive. No pole? No problem; the Lynnhaven Pier will equip you with whatever you may need for a nominal fee, including a fishing permit for the day.

For freshwater fishing holes, be sure to check out the serene creek waters at West Neck Marina at 3985 West Neck Road, the river banks of West Landing Marina located at 2748 West Landing Road, or near the Blackwater Trading Post at 5605 Blackwater Road. There are many freshwater locations, including city park lakes and creeks where fishing can be done in your own backyard.

If the offshore experience is what you're looking for, you can take your family and fishing buddies on a chartered boat. A few sport fishing charters in the area include Aquaman Sportfishing Charters with over 30 years of experience in the area's waters, located in the Rudee Inlet, Matador Charters at 200 Winston Salem Avenue, also located in the Rudee Inlet, or Rest Assured Charters located just off of Shore drive and with departures out of Long Pointe Bait and Tackle. Trips vary from up the Atlantic coast, to the Chesapeake Bay, and down to Oregon Inlet in Nags Head, North Carolina. You can choose a half-day trip, a full day trip, and even night trips-equipment and licensing included. Chartering a boat will allow even the novice fisherman an opportunity to catch some great Rockfish and bottom sea fish.

So turn off your TVs and go digging through your closet for the ol' rod and reel; it's time to go fishing!
