Good news I'm entertaining a promotion that would require me to move to Virginia. I hear fishing is great there! Job is in West Point but I would probably move somewhere between WP and VB. I'm looking for a marina close to the ocean that has diesel and some nice stuff for the wife when she's down. I like to do offshore as well as inshore fishing ahh heck I just like to fish all kinds! Any info would be appreciated!

Well, if you like to fish, you're coming to the right area. You'll probably need to narrow down where you'll be living but here are a few...
If you're looking for ammenities for the family / wife Saltponds in Hampton in really nice. On the other side of the river there are several inside Little Creek in Norfolk. I dry store at Taylor's Landing which is great and they do have a pool and a restaurant in the same complex. Getting into VB, there is Long Bay Pointe and Marina Shores inside Lynnhaven. LBP doesn't have a pool, but have shops and nice restaurants. Then there is Rudee Inlet with the VB fishing center, Fishermans' Wharf and Rudees. All have access direct access to the ocean and plenty to do for the family in that area...

If you are working in WP, you probably won't want to Venture to the South Side :rolleyes:....... the fishing is outstanding here all year long :yes:.

AS far a central location to lower Bay and offshore, Salt Ponds.
There ae several others on the north side of the HRBT, and like stated above if work is in WP stay on the north side.

Dare Marina is also a good choice if you are using Rt17 coming from WP.
