A one day license is $15.69 – CASH OR CHECK ONLY.
We have a large selection of rods, reels and combos, both conventional & spinning, along with jigs, lead heads, swimbaits & terminal tackle. We also have all the items necessary for your boat trip: sunscreen, hats, sunglasses, sweatshirts & T-shirts, pliers, hand towels, and much more.
Rigid ice chests (i.e., plastic, Styrofoam) are not allowed to be brought on board the boats, due to safety and liability issues. Alcohol, narcotics (including medical marijuana), firearms & explosives are also not allowed to be brought on board the boats.
Safety & Security – Operating under the jurisdiction of the Coast Guard, TSA and State Maritime guidelines (and for your safety), we are required to be proactive in searching carry-on items, prior to boarding the boat. Searches can be random or at a deckhand’s discretion, and are not based on race, gender, age or any other discriminating factors. Thank you for your cooperation.
Good Fishing Practices – Customers are responsible for keeping track of fish they keep. Once a fish has been placed in a gunny sack, it may not be removed and thrown back. If full limits of fish for all anglers are caught before the usual return time, the boat will come back early. Virg’s Landing practices sustainable fishing, and will not continue to fish when full limits have been achieved, as the fish cannot be kept and will die due to the change in pressure. Descending devices are required if fish are returned to the ocean.
