Charter Fishing

As the daughter in law of a former charter fishing boat captain, this is something that's really close to my heart. We even have the back portion of his old boat in our yard and hope to transform it into a snack bar area.

If you have never been on one of these fun trips, I highly recommend it. There's nothing like heading out into the open water and experiencing the thrill of landing a fish.

In Colonial Beach, we have a number of options for enjoying this fun sport. One is Fish Wish Charters with Capt. Frank Markham. The boat is a 32-foot Sea Ray island hopper and handles parties up to six people. 804-224-1400. You can also contact Capt. Wesley Jackson for a fun day out on the water or a dinner cruise on the Miss KayLeigh.

5th Day Fisheries can take you crabbing, fishing or sightseeing on the Potomac River.

Get aboard the Buddy Lee for a fun day of charter fishing! The captain will make sure you have a great time, using a variety of techniques for catching fish. Depending on the season, their customers can look forward to trolling, jigging, live-lining, bottom fishing and chumming to find the big catch. Reel 'Em In sometimes fishes out of Lewisetta Marina, and  move toward Colonial Beach as the fish migrate. 804-456-6193. 

Capt. Morgans is another local area charter fishing outfit and can be reached at 804-214-0492.

Getting up early in the morning can be difficult, but you have a better chance of landing more fish the earlier you hit the water.

Reel 'Em In goes out in search of Rockfish, Spot, Croaker, Perch, and Blues. I have yet to catch a bluefish, but I hear they put up a heck of a fight. So much so, that you'd think you have a big Marlin or another large species at the end of your line. Hopefully I will catch one soon and be able to find out for myself what it's like.
