virginia beach overnight offshore charter boat 11317

Last week, the weather forecast looked great for another overnight fishing charter from the Virginia Beach Fishing Center in Virginia beach, so we assembled a crew and went offshore. Trolling the first afternoon was slow for us and we only had a single mahi mahi bite to show for it, but as it got dark, the bites started up. The underdog charters crew caught and released a couple hammerhead sharks, and released a small swordfish before the sun came up. At sunup, we trolled for a short while with no results so we went bottom fishing. Bottom fishing yielded a great catch of sea bass and the new pending Virginia state record grey triggerfish at 6 pounds 12 ounces caught by angler Dave Walden of Yorktown, VA. After making a nice catch of wreck fish in the morning, underdog moved a couple miles north and offshore to the norfolk canyon to fish for swordfish. 3 hours of swordfishing produced 2 swordfish bites, with one released sword and one 60 inch swordfish landed. all in all it was great weather, a great trip that yielded 3 billfish catches- very good for Virginia Beach in November, a nice catch of bottom fish, and a pending state record grey triggerfish. We have plenty of dates available for charter fishing trips aboard the Underdog, so give us a call today and get your charter fishing trip booked!
