just a quick piece of info DO NOT take a half day trip out of rudee unless you want a long boat ride and little fishing. i did this a few year back. we went to the CBBT. little fishing and a long boat ride for 20 bucks, and not many fish to show for it. my recomendation is to take one of the boat out of lynnhaven.

It's not that your post is off topic. It's more like off course. This thread might get more attention if placed on the Boating Board. Here it's bound to get lost amongst the land stuff.

Hope yall packed your bags. Don't be surprised if sandflea pulls up anchor and turns this due south.

Thank you for the info. Where does the boat leave from? Is there a number to call?

P-s-stirrer I posted here because the boating board is very dated, and didn't think people who owned boats would have an intrest in headboats.I think everone got plenty of information, thank you!

I'm glad the post was here - and I agree with what dude said - probably peeps with boats wont want info on head boats.

Thanks for the information Bait Caster. I will be on the pier all night Friday. Would like to go Sat. on the head boat but tight for cash at the moment so will have to wait another week. Maybe next weekend. This one sounds good for me -

All Day Wreck Fishing
Departs 8:00AM......Returns 5:00PM.................................$45.00


Do any of the head boats offer an overnight trip like a two day with the whole night to fish?

Ill catch up with you out on the pier on Friday...should be a lot of fun!

All the boats I came across only offer overnight trips during the summer season.

I will be checking in on the lynnhaven marina to see what they have to offer after work and before I head out that way.

Can you list phone#'s? The night, and the full day both sound good. I'm from Richmond, and don't have a phone bok from down there.

My favorite Head Boat is the Sally-T which is run by Pete Thorne an independent. He goes out at 8 AM back at 3 PM charges $35. He targets Flounder, Stripers (aka Rockfish) and sometimes spadefish. He provides the best bait (live minnows and thick tube squid) on the flounder trips. I brought in a 6# 2oz citation on a trip last year. I have even seen him provide a discount when the boat had to come back early due to weather. Ive been on the head boats out of rudee and Lynhaven, by far the Sally-T is my favorite choice. His number is 515-3051. Make sure you ask for exact directions, the boat is a bit hidden and not at the Fish Market location with the others.
