Striper Fishing Charter

Striper Fishing Charter

Last night we had a Striper fishing charter in Norfolk Virginia. We fished in the York River and the Chesapeake Bay. Our fishing trip began at 7 pm so that we could fish at night time. Our marina is Vinings Landing Marina. Being Located along the Chesapeake Bay makes it a quick boat run to get to our fishing locations for Striper.

This Striper fishing charter was a light tackle fishing trip. The Rod and Reel we used for this Striper fishing charter was Saragossa spinning reels and Shimano rods. This gear is light enough to allow the fish to pull drag but heavy enough to get the job done. There are various fishing techniques that can be used to catch Striper.  The way we were targeting them this fishing charter was casting lures.

At our first fishing location we could see Menhaden jumping away from feeding Striper. With the variety of lures that we had with us we decided to use larger lures. It is important when using lure to mimic the size of the bait fish in the area. There are a couple of good lures that we use for Striper when they are feeding on large bait. Some of these lures are Guides Secret Lures, Storm Shads, and Bombers.

Menhaden are the most common bait fish in the Chesapeake Bay. Almost every predator fish in the Bay feeds off of Menhaden. They travel in large schools and are plentiful throughout the Chesapeake Bay. Once we saw that the Striper were feeding on the large Menhaden we knew that there were going to be big Stripers in the area. Striper this time of year feed aggressively in preparation to spawning. They feed heavily to get as fat as possible for energy.

As we arrived to our fishing location and began to cast it was fish on! Within our first 3 cast we had our first Striper. Most of our fish on this Striper fishing charter average was about 30 pounds. Our biggest Striper was 46 inches! This time of year the Striper fishing is Catch and Release so all fish were released unharmed. Everyone on board the fishing charter caught big Stripers.
