The fleet has returned to the dock and all of the boats have fish! The Capt Cheryl brought back some nice Black Sea Bass, as well as a Mako Shark. The High Hopes came in flying some Blue Marlin Release flags, as well as some nice Sea Bass and several nice Gaffer Mahi. The WaveRunner returned with some Mahi, and pulled off a White Marlin. The Backlash came in flying a Blue Marlin release flag, and also brought back to the dock some beautiful Gaffer Mahi, as well as a citation Blueline Tilefish. The Top Notch returned with some nice gaffer Mahi, as well as a Mako Shark, and sadly had a Marlin jump off on them. We also had several private boats fishing today, they have returned with a little bit of everything: Mahi, Yellowfin, Big Eye, Sea Bass, Tilefish, as well as flying a few release Marlin flags, and even a Sailfish release flag! Today was great fishing offshore although when the winds picked up it making the ride home a little bumpy, but in the end it was worth it!

The Rebel just returned with an impressive inshore catch. They brought back to the dock several Bluefish, as well as roughly 60 Spanish Mackerel!
The Veteran just returned from their morning inshore trip, with a good amount of nice sized Spanish Mackerel.
The inshore bite has really taken off here at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront. We have had a really nice showing of some good sized Spanish Mackerel as well as Bluefish. There has also been some really nice sharks caught and released recently as well! We have had several reports of some Cobia being caught, and a member of the fleet broke off a really nice one yesterday. The Cobia are around the buoys outside of Rudee Inlet. There has also been some Spadefish reported out at the tower. We have several boats fishing inshore today returning at various times so be sure to check back with us this afternoon for the latest inshore report.
Inside of Rudee Inlet the Spot and Croaker are biting! They seem to be hitting best on Bloodworms and Squid. There are still some keeper flounder biting on live minnows, but the scattered bite has been predominantly throw backs.
