Welcome to York River Charters! Our fishing charter boat operates on the Chesapeake Bay from Smith's Point on Virginia's Northern Neck to Lynnhaven Inlet in Virginia Beach. We run our charter trips from the closest Chesapeake Bay port to where the fish are biting. This gives our customers more time catching fish and less time "boat riding"!
Experience all that our local waters have to offer from the well equipped Catchin' Up. She's a pilot house sport fishing boat with state-of-the-art electronics. Catchin' Up gives Captain Alan the ability to easily guide your party into a secluded creek or tranquil flat, as well as safely dash you out into the deeper waters of the Chesapeake Bay!
The charter boat Catchin' Up presents our guests the opportunity to have a truly personalized experience on the Chesapeake Bay. For you, this may mean tailoring a fishing charter trip combining some bottom fishing for croaker, spot or flounder with an equal amount of time spent live baiting for mighty cobia and shark or trolling for striped bass (rockfish or stripers), bluefish or Spanish mackerel. For others it may mean fishing for speckled trout and red drum (redfish) on light tackle along the flats.
Regardless of the Chesapeake charter you choose, your Captain's unique prospective and knowledge of the Bay are sure to give you reason to join us for many trips in the future and become yet another lifelong Bay friend.York River Charters' goal is to provide our guests the prospect of "having it their way" for a change. So come on down, kick off your Top-Siders and let us show you, your loved ones and close friends what fishing on the Chesapeake Bay is really all about!
