Virginia's Eastern Shore fishing at its best!


Whether you want a full day fishing or a half day fishing we can cater to your desire.  Some of the fish you can target on your fishing charter are Tarpon, Rockfish, Black or Red Drum, Speckled Trout, Spade Fish, Croaker, Cobia, Flounder, Taug or Shark. Some fish have specific times or seasons that they are here.  We will be glad to give you a successful charter.


Spend time exploring on one of the beautiful barrier Islands.  Take a picnic, a chair or blanket and read a book.  If you walk the vast quiet beaches you can find some driftwood for you lawn.  If it is shells you like you might find Knobbed or Chanel Whelk shells, Sand dollars, snail shell, or angel wings.  It is always fun to find the unexpected one.  Bring a bag or basket to put them in.


If it is just a several hour boat ride on the inland ocean side or the bay we can charter that for you. There are osprey nesting and many other shore birds to see and also dolphins and sea turtles.You can see some of the most beautiful sunsets if the weather is cooperating.  Bring your camera to save these beautiful memories.

Lt. Charters   --   Cape Charles

In the skinny waters of the Barrier Islands, there stands to be a great early spring flounder run due to water temperature. Croaker, sand mullet & blues should also be in early, providing a great start to this year's fishing. Black drum, red drum, cobia, flounder, striped bass, croaker, sea mullet, spot, spadefish, and more will be landed this year. Book early to ensure the best days for the target fish. 

Ladies and children love it also as we are always within sight of land and fishing within 30 minutes of leaving the dock. Thus, there are no long boat rides, and should you wish, it is possible to break the day up by visiting dry land for a rest break and lunch, and then return to fishing.   

We aim to please, give us a try, give us a call. Let's go fishing.
