Fishing Chincoteague VA, and spending time on the beach with friends and family is a great summer vacation.  Some of the best fishing grounds on the Mid-Atlantic Coast are found in the local waters surrounding the Island of Chincoteague and Assateague. Fishing the Atlantic off-shore, or in the inland waterways that surround the Island, whatever your preference, will most  surely be a fun and productive experience.

Plan a family vacation that includes fishing along Assateague’s inlets and back bays or surf fishing for Striped Bass, Red drum, Shark and other sport fish from the beaches of Assateague Island. captsteves-banner3[1] Our last trip to the Island was a very pleasant experience.  The folks at Captain Steve’s bait and tackle were a very knowledgeable resource in answering all our fishing questions. Captain Steve’s Bait and Tackle is an excellent source for Chincoteague Island fishing tackle, bait and equipment. They specialize in surf, bay fishing (esp. flounder) , and offshore fishing and they carry a wide selection of rods, reels, lures and tackle for all local fishing needs   They also publish a fishing report every few days with pictures of the recent catch in the Chincoteague and Assateague area. http://www.stevesbaitandtackle.com/

Our recent trip was full of action.  Surf fishing, we caught flounder, croakers, kingfish and spot  The great thing about surf fishing is that the family can spend a day on the beach together and everyone can be fishing and having fun. We also had a charter with Captain Kenny Cromwell from Nothin Fancy Charters.  Captain Kenny is a professional who specializes in wreck and offshore charter fishing. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Nothin-Fancy-Charters/416054251777372?sk=photos_albums

While fishing with Captain Kenny we caught Tautog, Bass, Flounder, and some Rays.  We also boated three Sharks.  Pictures above of a  7ft unidentified shark and a 40 inch sharpnose shark caught with Captain Kenny of Nothin’ Fancy Charters.
