One of the most exciting fishing events for Virginia Beach anglers is the incredible striper (rockfish) fishing season that the Chesapeake Bay area provides in November through March. Not only do our Virginia Beach anglers look forward to these trips, so do we because they are so much fun and so unbelievably productive. Whether you call them striped bass, stripers, or rockfish they are a prized catch because of their size, strength and their incredible texture and flavor on the table.

We also offer something that very few striper charters do. We will put rockfish anglers together with custom makeup trips so that you can join in on a striper charter with other anglers. Sometimes called a makeup charter or walk-on charter it's just a short trip to plenty of action for everyone. In fact, many anglers catch fish until they are too tired to continue! Our experienced Captain Rob will make sure everyone onboard has a great time. Note: We are also available for local striper tournaments as a private charter or makeup charter.

Nice catch of Outer Banks tuna.


Joining a rockfish trip with Four Reel often has spectacular added bonuses! Every season the giant bluefin tuna will also appear and feed in our Virginia Beach's near shore areas. We'll keep you on top of this action so that there is always the possibility of catching your limit of nice rockfish and then finishing up by tangling with one of these massive bluefin tuna. Also, we often see various species of whales and unique birds on these charters. This is truly the outdoor sportsman's opportunity of a lifetime

We are the least expensive striper charter in Virginia Beach and we have the largest and nicest boat available! There is absolutely no reason to miss out on this great action when our full day charter costs even less than the competition's 3/4 day trips! I guaranteed that you'll kick yourself later regretting you didn't join us this season and every season.
