Consider the coast line of Virginia Beach to be a “fish highway” that different species of fish use to migrate from one point to another. Some fish like our waters better in the summer while others prefer the winter. The key to a successful fishing trip is knowing what species of fish you would like to catch and the best time of the year to catch them.
Virginia Beach offers a type of fishing to suit anyone’s interest including: offshore fishing, inshore fishing, pier fishing and surf fishing.
