Charter Boat Listings – Fishing Reports – Local Articles and More!

The Chesapeake Bay to the Virginia Capes, the rivers and estuaries that feed it as well as the adjacent offshore waters of Virginia and North Carolina make up one of the most spectacular fisheries in the world! Those who have had the opportunity to fish this special place feel fortunate.

The Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel Complex is one of the largest man made fish attracting devices in the world. Add to that the offshore towers and ship wrecks, near by Inlets, the relatively short run to the Gulf Stream and you quickly realize why the Mid-Atlantic coast is considered one of the best places in the world to fish!
