jeffdon12- I'm not an expert on this topic by any means but I'll tell you what I know. Alot of the surf fishermen that fish these islands are very tight lipped about it. The VA barrier islands are fished for large red drum. The surf anglers will take a boat from the mainland to the backside of these islands and then carry their gear across the island. Without a map in front of me I can't tell you which island is near Gargatha. They take pretty stout surf gear and usually fish cut bunker on a large circle hook on a fishfinder set up. I have seen pis and read report. These islands are remote and beautiful and if you time it right you can catch some big reds.
