Striper Fishing in Virginia

Best Striper Fishing in Virginia Beach

Welcome to Big Bull Charters for some of the finest striper fishing Virginia has to offer. 

Virginia Beach striper fishing attracts anglers each year, from all over....and year after year it just keeps getting better! With stripers ranging from 30 lbs. to 70 lbs., you can see why Virginia has become such a 'hot spot', each winter. The winter drudgery is replaced with the excitement of another year of sportfishing on the Big Bull.

Trips may be scheduled as full day, half day, morning, afternoon, there is something for everyone and we cater to you. We fish out of Virginia Beach, from the North Carolina waters to the Eastern Shore, the boat is licensed for both NC and VA. It's safe, it's can be a beginner or a die-hard angler trying to catch fish on light tackle. Rock fish can be a great fighting fish to catch, so turn the winter doldrums into an adventure that they will talk about forever! All bait, tackle, ice, licenses and permits are furnished. Break out the cold weather clothing, your lunch, a camera and bring your enthusiasm, Capt. Bull will do the rest to assure you a great day of fishing.


The boat is called Big Bull after the Captain, Big Bull (Gary Bulman). As a coast guard licensed and insured Captain, he is a respected and professional charter boat captain. He has fished the Virginia waters for over 25 years. Our goal is to make sure your trip is a great experience. His knowledge of finding and catching the fish will keep you coming back, year after year! We catch limits of BIG STRIPERS!
