Virginia Beach Fishing Pier Now 24/7

The Summer season has officially started, so the Virginia Beach Fishing Pier is now 24/7.

We have been catching some nice Roundhead, also known as Whiting, and the Bluefish catch has been good for the month of May.

The water temperature is steadily going up, so everything should continue to improve.

Blue crabs have started to arrive along the oceanfront and we should have another good season for crabbing.

A couple of Stripers in the 36 inch range were caught in the past week. Sometimes we get a few this time of year.

VA Beach Fishing Pier Report – May 14 2016 | Virginia Beach Fishing Pier

VA Beach Fishing Pier Report – May 14 2016

Wind and rain have been a big factor at the Virginia Beach Fishing Pier in 2016. The last couple of weeks have produced some good Bluefish catches, mainly on Gotcha plugs, and because the water temperature has remained below normal the Clearnose Skates and some Blowfish are still being caught.

While Spot and Croaker have been somewhat scarce for this time of year, some Roundhead have started to show up. We hope the weather will normalize and the bottom fishing will begin in earnest.

This week also had some Blue crabs coming over the railing and the season on crabs is predicted to be very good this year.

Virginia Beach Fishing Pier Season 2016

It’s time to start the new season at the Virginia Beach Fishing Pier. We will be opening on March 25, 2016. The Spring operating hours are 8AM-8PM, weather permitting. Call (757) 428-2333 for more information.

Some years Easter weekend can be very cooperative as far as the weather is concerned, but we don’t know what the fish are thinking until we have some anglers testing the waters.

So, get your gear sorted and come join us on the VA Beach Pier. If you don’t have your own fishing tackle, the Pier Tackle Shop has rental rods and bait available.

The Gift Shop is open, but Ocean Eddie’s Restaurant usually opens around May 1st.
