January - Striped Bass fever is in full swing in January in Virginia Beach. This is peak season for catching a 'Rockfish,' the local name for the Chesapeake Bay's favorite fish. Don't forget about Tautog & Black Seabass. Also... Look for migrating Humpback Whales during your trip!
February - Striped Bass fishing continues to light up the Chesapeake Bay. Bring in these hard-fighting fish until your arms hurt. This will warm you up regardless of what the grim February weather throws at you.
March - Temperatures finally start to rise into the mid 60s by the end of the month. This is not the peak season for fishing but you can catch yourself a good deal at a hotel, if not some Striped Bass, Tautog and Speckled Trout.
April - As temperatures start to get serious about transitioning to spring, so does the fishing. Yellowfin Tuna start to appear offshore, with Bigeye, Wahoo, Marlin & Mahi Mahi hot on their heels. Inshore, Black/Red Drum and Speckled Trout are biting.
May - Spring is definitely here, and peak fishing season starts. Everything is biting from mid May through October. Look out for Spadefish, Cobia, big Red & Black Drum in the Chesapeake or large schools of Yellowfin tuna & Mahi Mahi offshore of Virginia Beach.
June - Cobia start to invade the Inshore waters & Chesapeake Bay, making for excellent sight fishing through September. As well as Yellowfin, offshore trips target Bigeye Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo and White/Blue Marlin.
July - Summer fishing continues to bring in big pelagics offshore like White & Blue Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo & Tuna and Virginia Beach charter fishing is the perfect way to have fun and escape the crowds in peak season. Don't miss the Virginia Beach Invitational Marlin Tournament. Inshore there is Spanish or King Mackerel, Bluefish, Ribbonfish, Spadefish & More!
August - White Marlin, Mahi Mahi & Wahoo fishing gets even better than ever, while Blue Marlin remains excellent. The Virginia Beach Billfish Tournament makes the most of the bite. Closer to shore, catch Red Drum, Cobia, Spanish or King Mackerel.
September - Temperatures cool and the crowds disperse. And while hotel prices might drop, the fishing doesn't. This is peak season for Bigeye and Yellowfin Tuna Offshore. Inshore the Big Red Drum, King Mackerel and Speckled Trout are the talk of the town.
October - October is most certainly fall, and you will find the cooler temperatures agree. But if fall means one thing in Virginia Beach, it is Stripers. The best thing is, most of the summer species are still around, too.
November - Along with Stripers, November means fishing for Speckled Trout, Tautog, Flounder, and Sea Bass. Offshore, Yellowfin Tuna is still going strong, and the occasional Bluefin Tuna may even come in close to shore.
December - Only the hardiest of fish remain in Virginia Beach in the winter. But hey, what does that matter when Rockfish, Tautog & Seabass is as hardy as they come? A festive meal of big Striped Bass never hurt anyone.
