Chesapeake Bay Rockfish Charters


Chesapeake Bay Rockfish Charters

Here at Captain Hoggs Charter Service, we pride ourselves in the quality of the Virginia rockfish that we catch. While rock fishing in the lower Chesapeake Bay of VA, we fish at the famous Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel. The CBBT is one of the best artificial reefs on the east coast. Virginia rockfish use the CBBT as “home base” all year long.

Chesapeake Bay Rockfish Charters with Capt Hogg

Rockfish that we see migrate through the lower Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic Ocean. These rockfish range in size from ten to seventy pounds. The last four state records for rockfish in Virginia have come from these prime fishing waters. As the water in the bay cools off, the rock fishing heats up! The newly built Smokin’ Gun II has a fully enclosed heated cabin which will keep you toasty and warm while enjoying yourself on one of our striped bass charters. Our rockfish charters are usually action packed, so bring your friends and experience a great day striper fishing on the Chesapeake Bay.

Rockfish Seasons in Virginia

Rockfishing season runs from October 4th until March 31st and then from May 1st to June 15th.

During the coastal rockfish season, we move the Smokin’ Gun II closer to the action and dock at Rudee Inlet in Virginia Beach, VA. With runs to the rock fishing grounds only taking a few minutes, we provide our rockfish fishing charters first crack at giant ocean rockfish!

The trophy rock fish out of Virginia Beach is some of the best fishing in the world so contact us today and come load your coolers with trophy rockfish with Captain Hogg’s Charter Service.
