Welcome to Coastal Virginia


If you love fishing, then you’re in the right place.

In 2005, the travel and tourism boards of Virginia Beach, Hampton, Norfolk and Chesapeake identified the need to reach travelers who wanted to fish in the Hampton Roads region. The group didn’t need to look far for a partner who specialized in marketing communications for the sport fishing industry to produce the state’s most prestigious, respected and ONLY fishing guide.

Realizing that this publication would need a strong visual foundation, the tourism boards turned to Cabin Fever Communications for their deep history and respected reputation as a leading content producer for the sport fishing industry.

Lead by Cabin Fever’s President, Harry Hindmarsh, his photography and creative direction quickly shaped the visual tone for an annual publication that’s second to none.

Each year, Cabin Fever spends time on the water fishing all of Hampton Roads seeking the best places to catch highly-sought after game fish on both fresh and saltwater. This information is then published and shared with visitors from all over the east coast and beyond.

In 2011, the formation of a bigger marketing initiative called “Coastal Virginia Getaways” was established and asked Cabin Fever to expand the magazine to cover even more locations outside of Hampton Roads.

The Fish Coastal Virginia website was started in January 2012 to showcase the solid year-round fishery that Coastal Virginia has throughout the region. Species such as trout, stripers, red drum, tarpon, cobia, sheepshead, flounder, taug, spade fish, catfish and many more showcase the inshore fisheries and species such as marlins, tuna, dophin, wahoo, barracudas and swordfish are just a boat ride off shore.

Armed with his camera, two boats and his best friends, Harry Hindmarsh’s photos will be showcased in this site to share the very best of Coastal Virginia and help readers find places and ways to catch everything that swims in our waters.

Thank you for visiting Fish Coastal Virginia and we hope you plan a trip soon to fish our waters!
