AHOY! Captain in training, Luciana (Jimmy’s daughter), is beginning to learn the water just like the rest of her family. Are you interested in a fun trip for your family? Fun trips are for families that want to learn more about fishing around Chincoteague Island; often anglers will clam, fish, watch dolphin, and more. Stop by the store and ask our staff about the Chincoteague Experience Trips.
Fishing Report: September 15, 2014
The weather here on the island is nice and cool in the mornings and evenings and warm in the middle of the day. You might enjoy relaxing on the beach in the afternoon (bring a jacket just in case) and roasting a hot dog over a nice fire or walking over to one of our local ice cream shops and enjoying a sweet treat with the family. No matter your vacation mission; it’s time to fish, it’s time to relax, it’s time to stop by Captain Steve’s, and it’s time for some fun!
