We’ve made it through the (very mild) winter and are currently preparing for a killer spring in the Chesapeake Bay. The Dogwood trees are blooming and every Virginia fisherman knows exactly what that means also, the fish are moving it. We are currently prepping Havoc for Fishing charters and Cruises starting later this month. We want to make sure she is in Bristol Condition before getting underway with any Private Charters.
We have been to expos, shows, distributors, and local stores (like Oceans East Bait & Tackle) looking for the best new gear for the upcoming mackerel, cobia, drum, etc seasons. The thing we have figure out from our years chartering many different boats is that redundancy of gear is very important. you can never have too much gear on a fishing charter, especially in Virginia Beach where we are practice the hub for a multitude of fish species. Even though we are a six pack boat (meaning we carry up to 6 passengers) we still carry at least 24 different rod and reel combos. Don't worry they are all top of the line!
We are hauling out Havoc on March 18 to get some fresh bottom paint, more underwater lights, and buff/wax to make her sparkle again in time to get some tautog towards the end of March. One of the biggest misconceptions with fishing in Virginia is that people thing winter/early spring equals no fish. That couldn't be any further from the truth, April is looking to be a very promising time for Black Drum and Tautog. Since we are in the Lynhaven Area, that means we will be less than a 20-minute cruise out to the areas around the CBBT (Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel) that are best for catching Black Drum.
