Places to Fish from Shore

Curtis Merritt Harbor in Chincoteague Virginia


 There were a few nice spots to fish from shore here but the area is now off limits. Hopefully this will change in the future.

Something beneficial to anglers about this spot is the abundance of bait in the harbor. In the moments before dawn, mullet, menhaden and small perch can be cast netted under the lights.

Powerboaters and Kayakers can launch and explore the area further. The ramp requires a permit which can be obtained from local Police Station. Clamming and fishing areas are nearby and can be reached by small boat. Check with local tackle shops or VMRC for fishing regulations.
