Taurus is a luxurious 40′ x 14′ 6″ charter boat built in 2004 by Captain Steve Barko. Its spacious interior and advanced navigational features make it an excellent choice for group trips on the waters of Maryland. With its high capacity of 15 passengers, Taurus provides a comfortable and stable experience with top-of-the-line equipment. Enjoy a unique fishing experience on this superior-quality charter boat with Lucky Strike Fishing Charters.

Solomons, Maryland and Virginia Beach, are ideal fishing spots for anglers! The shallow coastal waters of the Chesapeake Bay provide excellent habitat for Striped Bass, Bluefish, Spot, Croaker, Perch, Redfish, Flounder and Mackerel. In addition to these popular game-fish species found in Solomon’s waters, the nearby Virginia Beach is also home to an abundance of Cobia, Triggerfish, Spadefish and Black Sea Bass. The variety of fish species makes these two hotspots a great place to drop a line.

Lucky Strike Fishing Charter provides a variety of fishing techniques in Virginia Beach. We offer trophy fishing with live baiting for rockfish and bluefish and bottom fishing for croaker, spot, and perch. Drift fishing for flounder is also available, as well as trolling the bay and offshore waters of Virginia Beach for Rockfish and Bluefish. Captain Dave has many time and tested fishing methods to choose from depending on the situation to ensure you enjoy an unforgettable day on the water with us.

Lucky Strike Fishing Charter offers full-day, half-day and late-afternoon charters for anglers of all levels. Full-day charters provide the opportunity to target multiple species, such as Rockfish, Stripers, Bluefish and Flounder. Half-day trips are ideal for quick action close to shore and for families. Late afternoon charters take advantage of the evening bite while bottom fishing for Rockfish, Bluefish and more. The charters are for six anglers, but the boat can accommodate up to 15. No matter your experience level, Lucky Strike Fishing Charter has you covered.

Lucky Strike Fishing Charter also offers private charters for cruises, bachelor/bachelorette parties, harbor/river tours and more. Experience a unique outing in style with our luxury vessel and dedicated crew.

    Lucky Strike Charters and Captain Steve is the best combo. The price is amazing and we do a full day charter at least once a year. He such a great captain and always puts us on fish. I’m definitely going so see if we can talk him into a night fishing charter or one out into the Atlantic soon. Trust me Lucky Strike Fishing Charters know where the fish are!

    Captain Steve was great! He did all he could to put us on top of the fish all day long. 1st mate was helpful and the boat was nice and in good condition. This was a great team building trip for KEE Construction. I would recommend to anyone.
