VA Chesapeake Bay Sight Casting Charters

Our 31′ Express Sportfisher, Patriot, that accommodates 1 to 6 guests on private charters (just your group and the Captain/Crew).



Many York River Charters guests enjoy stalking their prey by sight-casting lures, live, and dead baits from the tower while aboard our open express sportfisher, Patriot.  Some of the species we target by sight casting include Cobia, Striped Bass (Stripers, Rockfish), Bluefish, and Red Drum (Redfish). Luckily for our guests, all of these fish are fine table fare. For those who have had less than satisfactory results with Bluefish dishes, ask Capt. Alan for some preparation tips. 😉
