The Big Worm
has moved back to Virginia Beach (VA) to fish for Black Sea Bass and other
denizens of the blue water. Text me at 410-474-4428 to get on the books!
Until further notice we'll be operating out of Fisherman's Wharf Marina,
524 Winston Salem Ave., Virginia Beach, VA 23451.
Keep in mind that the Big Worm is 52 foot
long and 16 foot wide -- one of the largest charter boats operating on the
Chesapeake Bay or out of Virginia Beach.

Here at Big Worm Charters we had another first
yesterday!!!! With the help and effort of Doug Collison and Rich Mogel,
Big Worm put its first Bluefin on deck!! Our first bite came 5 minutes
after setting out. We were a LITTLE taken by the power and
speed of these fish. Unless you have a set of 130s or bigger don't waste
your time. Anyway we learned a few things after our first fish escaped.
Next bite came an hour later and after an hour and half battle, we boated
our first. It weighed in at 201 pounds and after some negotiations with
Scottsoo I was sadly disappointed that I didn't get $20 a pound!!! But it
was still exciting to do! A special thanks to a handful of Vrginia Beach
locals who have helped me along the way. I won't mention their names --
they know who they are! Thanks guys!
