Welcome to the Hooks and Feathers Website
We offer Chincoteague Island Virginia charter fishing trips including, deep sea fishing charters, wreck fishing, bay fishing and inland fishing trips. We also provide late season trophy striped bass fishing off the Virginia Coast.
Off the Eastern Shore of Virginia, lies an island seven miles long by one and a half miles wide. Chincoteague Island is connected to the mainland by a causeway and six bridges. We, at Hooks & Feathers, can think of no better place to live, work and play than on Chincoteague Island.
Chincoteague Island is protected from the Atlantic Ocean, by it's neighboring barrier Island of Assateague. The fishing here is great, whether you are DEEP SEA FISHING, bay and inland fishing, or just casting off the beach.
Together these islands make up the Assateague Island National Seashore and Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge.
The Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge is one of the several sanctuaries for waterfowl on the Atlantic Flyway. In the fall and spring, the migration of waterfowl is a spectacular sight to behold. Wildlife is abundant here, which makes it an ideal place to visit and explore.
