Virginia Beach Offshore Shark Fishing report

Tuesday June 05th 2012 - 15:00 AM EST
Added by: Jake Hiles

Saturday, we had rough conditions and no gulf stream water nearby but we had a group ready to go offshore. They could only fish saturday so the plan was to leave late and come back late. With no water in the canyon, we would shark fish. We ran out to the fingers and set up our drift. The wind and tide made the drift a fast one and we drifted south at almost three knots. We put out plenty of chum and let it work. The water was clean green and 69-70 degrees. About an hour into it we had a 4-5' mako in the spread. This fish was just cruising through the spread and would show up and then dissappear. While this was going on we had a 100# or so tiger shark come into the spread. The tiger instantly ate and we caught the fish in fairly short order. After that the mako showed back up and I was able to tease him into eating a bait on a 30 wide. the shark was a great fight on the 30 and was released boatside. A while later a mahi came in and checked out our chumbag and we caught him too. We gave it another hour and a half after that and didnt see anything so we packed it in and went inshore some to fish for sea bass. We went to a wreck that was loaded with bass but only about half of them were keepers. We still caught a nice mess of bass and came home to the dock late.
