December in Chincoteague

Thanks again for voting Captain Steve’s the BEST Bait and Tackle Shop we received the Gold Choice winner for Virginia and The Eastern Shore!

The year is coming to a closer and Tom is playing with the sharks!  We went to our first of many shows this past week to restock the shop and our ever expanding inventory.  Chincoteague is still really nice this time of year there are a lot of snow geese around and plenty of ducks too.  The town is decorated with Christmas Decorations for the Holiday season.  This Sunday there is a tea party with Mrs. Clause 2 PM Hampton Inn & Suites, 4179 Main Street.  Limited seating.  Pre-paid reservations are required and can be made by calling 757-894-0924.  $15 per child.  Dress for a tea party!

The Polar Plunge is on 1:15 PM  New Years Daty plungers are encouraged to dress up in the zaniest, craziest costume they can come up with!  Prizes await the best costumes in many categories.  Plungers must read and sign a waiver and release form.  For more info visit

The Pony Island Horseshoe Drop is an end of year celebration that culminates in a promenade of crazy costumes just before the countdown to the stroke of midnight. That’s when the lighted horseshoe drops just in time to ring in the New Year!  Wear your favorite costume or just be a spectator… It’s all perfectly natural here!  To become totally immersed in the oddest of silly visual spectacles, you should head for the Downtown Waterfront Park around 10:00PM.
