FYI -- General Information

FYI: The Free Fishing Days you hear about in the news every year means the State of Virginia is letting people fish without a Fishing License on those days in areas that a Fishing License is required.

This does not apply to Pier Admission at any local Pier.

We have a Facebook page that gets updated more frequently that our web page. Please visit (Right-click and open in a new tab if the link gets you nowhere. You can also Copy and Paste it into your browser window.)

We live in glorious Virginia Beach, so the weather changes by the minute. We recommend checking the report for yourself using the links below before you come. While we are happy to tell you what it looks like outside our window, we are no better at predicting the weather than the weatherman is. A good weather page is the Weather Underground, which also offers predictions for wind direction and speed which is very useful for predicting fishing.

Our Tide Charts can be found in this album (they are in order from Left to Right from May Through October):
Lynnhaven Inlet
Cape Henry
(For the most accurate tides, use Cape Henry and/or Lynnhaven Inlet for the address - the pier is about half-way between the two points)

Best Fishing:
Incoming tide is typically better than outgoing tide. Incoming tide is approximately 1 hour after Low up to 1 hour before High.

Northeast wind is the best; south wind is the worst. But fish can bite in any wind.

If you are new to fishing and crabbing and we have a few spare moments, we'd be happy to show you how. Just ask.

If you have any trouble with the links, please right-click and choose to open in another tab or window; that sometimes solves the problem.
