I got some good help today before heading out onto the rocks at the inlet to do some fishing. Got some accurate advice from Ryan. Quick and easy, with all the tackle that you might need and spend a nice afternoon in the sun.

We booked a fishing charter through Virginia Beach Fishing Center and went out with Capt. Scott of the Veteran. Extremely professional and very friendly. If you are looking to book a trip I would highly recommend requesting Capt. Scott.

Friendly people are glad to assist you in booking charters or simply giving information on what is available. If you like to fish in salt water, this is the place for you.

We are so sorry that you did not enjoy your experience on the headboats; however, the headboats are not run through our company and are a whole other separate company. We do apologize for your experience regardless as they must have had an off day!...More
