We all know Virginia Beach is a fishing paradise and was nice to be recognized by Sport Fishing Magazine’s Top Ten List of Places to Catch a World Record
. Thanks Sport Fish Mag for the kudos!
The Virginia Beach Billfish Tournament is going on this week. A tournament maximum of 75 boats will be chasing billfish. Capt. Ken Neill said that the bite is good so there should be some impressive catches. In addition to some very good billfish action, there are good numbers of wahoo being caught and dolphin fishing is good. Down around the Point, off of Oregon Inlet, there are good numbers of yellowfin tuna and blackfin tuna. Wahoo fishing is very good out of Hatteras. The best of the billfish action has been from the Triple 0s on north, mostly between 40 and 100 fathoms.
