Our Virginia Fishing Charters begin in Early April and run all the way through December. In the earlier months (April – Early May) Finao Sportfishing will be targeting Striped Bass, Tautog, and Drum. These three fish are unique in their own separate way. Striped bass will be feeding on mostly other fish such as Menhaden and Grass shrimp along the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel. On our Striped Bass fishing charters we cast lures. We use a variety of lures but these are our most common Guidessecrets, Bucktails, Gulp, and Storm Shads. The lures we use mimic our common bait fish that time of year in the Chesapeake Bay.

Drum and Tautog are similar this time of year in the way that we target these species. The Chesapeake bay is known for its abundance of Blue Crabs which is a Tautog, Red Drum, and Black drum favorite meal this time of year. We target these species on our Virginia Fishing Charter using older techniques like chumming and bottom fishing. Both Tautog and Drum are known to be some of the hardest fighting fish in the Chesapeake Bay and never give up!

As we get into the warmer months (Late May – September) our Virginia Fishing Charters get into one of the most popular fish in the Chesapeake Bay the Cobia. Cobia have a very wide diet. They feed off of Croaker, Spot, Eels, Menhaden, Crabs, and Mantis Shrimp. The style we use for Cobia is Sight casting. This technique is one of the most exciting ways to catch fish in the Chesapeake Bay.

The next time you are looking to book a Virginia Fishing Charter please keep in mind Finao Sportfishing. We will be fishing year round for the most fun and biggest fish in the Chesapeake Bay.
