Virginia Beach Striper Fishing Boats

Our our boat is a top Virginia Beach striper fishing boat with all top of the line ameneties and luxuries. We fish a crew of six anglers comfortably. They all offer a heated salon where anglers can take a break and get warm on those ice cold VB striper fishing days. Ride and fish comfortably on deck or when inside taking a break from the chilly winter days you can relax and shoot the breeze with your fellow anglers while you enjoy a lunch and a drink while listening to the stereo. Oh and from time to time you will step outside of all that comfort to crank in a jumbo Virginia Beach rockfish which is one heck of a way to spend the day!

What To Bring To The Boat

Virginia Beach Striper Fishing and all our Captains will supply everything you need to catch fish which will include top brand name rod n reels, fishing tackle, live or artificial baits, and even ice for the fish. We have provided a list of a few things you may want to bring that may make your Virginia Beach striper fishing trip more comfortable below. In addition to the listed items you may bring, if you also have a pair of boat shoes like Topsiders or Docksiders then you should wear them. Tennis shoes or other soft soled shoes are OK too.

boat-shoes

DO NOT wear hard soled shoes such as an old pair of dress shoes, penny loafers, or similar as they leave black scuff marks all over the deck plus there is a real danger of slipping right onto your backside in a split second. Tennis shoes, boat shoes, or flip flops are recommended.

cooler

Bring a cooler for food and drinks. Ask your Virginia charter boat Captain how large of a cooler you will need to carry your fish home in.

dufflebag

A sports bag is a good idea to bring for carrying your rain gear, hat, glasses etc and other personal items that you need on a saltwater charter fishing trip.

chicken
sprite

Bring all your food and drinks. You are welcome to bring beer on the boat. BUT all beer must be in CANS and hard liquor is not permitted.

rain-gear

If you will be fishing in foul or rainy weather then you may want to bring some gear to keep you dry. Not as important on boats with covers and cabins like the Waterman.

Bring sun glasses. Preferrably polarized fishing glasses to lessen the sun’s glare that reflects up off the water.

imagesvideo

Bring a camera to take snapshots of those big fish you catch or video of the beautiful offshore waters of Virginia.

fishing-hat

A hat or ball cap is a good idea, especially for you guys that are getting a bit thin on top. Protect your head from the cold winds. For Cold Weather you should wear a knit hat or “beenie”.

dramamine

If you get sea sick or aren’t sure if you get sea sick then it is a very wise idea to take your Dramamine before you leave the dock. Nothing can ruin a fishing trip worse than a guy named “RALPH”.

sun-screen

For winter time fishing the key is to stay warm and dry. Make sure you layer your clothes and wear the right gear on your feet to keep them warm. Cold wet feet can make for a miserable day.

100

You probably already paid for the trip but you should make sure you have some cash in pocket so you can tip the First Mate. Being Mate on a charter boat is not easy work and these guys deserve every dime they get. Tip them well!
