Experience all that the Virginia Chesapeake Bay has to offer from the well equipped Catchin' Up II. She's a 25 foot pilot house sport fishing boat with state-of-the-art electronics. Catchin' Up II gives Captain Alan the ability to easily guide your party into a secluded saltwater creek or tranquil flat, as well as safely dash you out into our deeper waters!

Virginia Saltwater Sport Fishing

The charter boat Catchin' Up II presents our guests the opportunity to have a truly personalized experience on the Chesapeake Bay of VA. For you, this may mean tailoring a saltwater fishing charter combining some bottom fishing for croaker, spot or flounder with an equal amount of time spent sport fishing by live baiting for mighty cobia and shark, or trolling for trophy striped bass (stripers), bluefish or Spanish mackerel. Some folks enjoy fishing for speckled trout and red drum (redfish) on light tackle along the flats or crabbing for Virginia Chesapeake Bay Blue Crab. Others may want to take one of our intimate sunset cruises topped off by a waterfront dining experience in Yorktown or Gloucester Point. Virginia charter boat photo
