Trophy Spadefish at the Chesapeake Light Tower off VA beach

Scott Gregg

Come along as we catch a limit of trophy spadefish offshore of Virginia Beach at the Chesapeake light tower. These are the hardest fighting fish pound for pound in the area. They are great eating and challenging to catch. Spadefish fight extremely hard and have small hard mouths. Meaning you can't "horse" these fish in. Fishing for them usually involves a crowds so patience is a must as is a good attitude. Going during the week can help minimize crowds. There are a lot of great charters that can put you on spadefish out of Virginia Beach. Leave a comment and we can give a few recommendations if you need it.
