Chincoteague Fishing Report through Late July

Summer fishing is in full swing with a nice flounder resurgence in the bay the past week. There is also a good number of kingfish and croaker being caught near the inlet. Off the surf the kingfish bite has been consistent with the bulk of them being caught early in the morning with blues, croaker, and the occasional pompano too. For those looking to target something a little bigger the shark fishing in the evening has been excellent.

If you would like to book a charter stop by the shop or give us an email stevesbaitandtackle@gmail.com or a call @757-336-0569  They are first come first serve so call ahead to book to reserve a spot.  We do all types of fishing charters including bay trips, wreck fishing trips, shark fishing trips, and even clamming trips.

Capt. Matt aboard “Marshland Charters” sent in some pics showing off some of their haul from recent trips in the back bay and Shark charters as well. Stop on in to book a trip for yourself.0e8f7fc1-2c54-4ba0-b29c-3f045ac1e9e7
