Rudee Inlet Fishing Charters


The Toro
The Toro
Welcome to the Virginia Beach charter fishing boat Matador. We fish from Rudee Inlet, Virginia Beach (at the south end of the Boardwalk) for rockfish (striper), tuna and marlin.

Whether you’re looking for offshore deep sea, inshore or wreck fishing, Captain Jake Hiles will give you a fishing trip you’ll never forget.

Our home base is the famous Mid-Atlantic fishing region. Virginia Beach offshore waters are perfect for deep sea / deep drop charter fishing. Whether you’re a seasoned fisherman or a total novice, everyone in the fishing party has a great chance of catching something.

Gulf stream fishing fans love the reel-screaming action. There’s no feeling like a mighty fish taking the bait. The rod bends as a marlin, sailfish or tuna zips off yards of line. Your angling skills will be tested to the limit.

Don’t worry if you haven’t yet acquired such fishing skills - Captain Jake will be there to help at every turn. After all, there’s nothing better than hands-on learning to gain experience!

Jake Hiles was the angler.
Jeff Landis was the mate.
The bite was at 4:17am this morning on a drifted stinky tinky, and the fish was gaffed at 5:10am. The fight was 53 minutes on anglers envy custom rod and penn 130vsx.

The existing record was held by Chase Robinson at 606#. Captain Jake was part of the crew that caught the 606# aboard "Ate Up". This one’s for you Chase. Rest in Peace buddy. Records are meant to be broken but I always thought that if someone were going to break your record, it would be one of the boys.
