Striped Bass Fishing Charters
At Captain Hogg’s Charter Service, we pride ourselves in the quality of the Virginia striped bass that we catch. In the lower Chesapeake Bay, we run most of our striper fishing charters to the famous Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel. The CBBT is one of the best artificial reefs on the east coast and Virginia striped bass use the CBBT as “home base” all year long.

- Live baiting with spot, menhaden, and eels
- Casting top water plugs

The striped bass that we see migrate through the lower Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic Ocean. These striped bass range in size from ten to seventy pounds. Many Virginia state records for striped bass have come from these prime fishing waters. As the water in the bay cools off, the striper 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 striped bass charters are usually action packed, so bring your friends and experience a great day striper fishing on the Chesapeake Bay.
