Hi all,

I'm booked on a 16-hour tile/deep-drop drop with Rudee Inlet Charters out of VA Beach next weekend.

Anyone have any experience with this outfit? Any information about the boat, etc would be much appreciated!

Thanks,

Willy

My friend fished with them quite a bite this winter. I think he may be on that trip too. He caught lots of bluelines with them. they overbook the boat too much to truly fish deep for the goldens. On the 16 hour trips, expect mostly bluelines as he saves the goldens for the 21 hour trips. he also usually motordrifts by putting the bow into the wind and bumping in and out of gear which is great. Sleeping accomodations are zero, it ain't the viking starship

Got it. As far as fish storage goes, I imagine and you and your coolers, yes? Over the last six months, I've driven from Boston-->San Diego-->DC, and a large cooler didn't make the trip!

typical east coast style, you catch, you store, not like florida or the carolinas with stringers and back box etc

And same depths as the boats up north, I take it? Anywhere from 400-900 ft?

Rumor has it that he's got RSA for seabass so don't be surprised. I also recall fish cleaning being a separate service at the docks and they charge by the pound which adds up quickly on a good day.

Man wish I could make this trip with you, but you will do good. I had a 48 qt cooler and filled that up with some nice size Seabass, Bluefish, & Blueline tiles. The depht was no more then 300 ft when I went on the 16 hr trip, they provide sinkers and hooks if you need them.

Haven't fished the boat for several years, used to make the Saturday trips for seabass and fishing could not be better, easily filling a 150 cooler full of 3-5 fish. The boat was the speedy out of captree. Interior seating was limited and no sleeping except on the floor. Bait was so-so, we brought frozen clams. Took us 7 hours from the GW bridge, definitely need additional drivers unless sleeping over, out of season rooms very reasonable. Fishing cleaning very epensive and on shore after docking. Nice capt and crew.
