Although the fish were sleeping in today it was a very nice day on the bay. We could see the rocket on the launch pad at Wallops Island. Captain Charles was a friendly, jovial host. Boat was percent for 3 or 4, however he had a larger boat for 6. Gear was provided

I took my 2 sons and 2 nephews ages 9-13 out with Captain Charlie. Grandma came along for the ride and Captain Charlie did not disappoint! We went back bay fishing for flounder--Captain Charlie taught the boys how to set up the rod, bait and how to fish for flounder. We caught enough for dinner! We also took a cruise... More

Captain Charlie worked hard on our boat to try and get us on flounder. We all caught at least one. He was also willing to answer questions thAt we had about the island.

Enjoyed a wonderful day fishing with the captain...catching all types of fish including flounder, sea robins, oyster crackers, etc. Also got to see the dolphins. What a great day to share with my son and future son-in-law. Brought home dinner to share with the rest of the family! Thanks captain.

Our party of six only returned with one keeper but everyone had a fun experience (and that is impressive since the age range was 4 years to 76 years with two teens!). Thanks again, Captain Charlie!

Had a great time with this trip. Captain Charlie took us out clamming on a beautiful morning. He was very helpful and knew his stuff. Would highly recommend him for clamming!

Great fishing. Had a lot of fun on this charter. Captain Koski was very friendly and knowledgeable about the island and best spots to fish. Will definitely book another charter with him on our next visit!

Came a little too early in the season in late April. But still caught some great fish! 4 flounder in the morning. 3 over 20 inches. Personable captain, good fishing, good time. Will return.

My husband and I took a fishing trip with Island Queen Inland Charters in September. We had a wonderful time! Captain Charlie was great! He knew all the good fishing spots, and we caught a good amount of fish! The boat and rods were in great condition and we learned a little about the island and fishing. We highly recommend... More

We returned the week of August 16th for our annual week to Chincoteague Island, Va. We have been coming here for annual vacation since I can't remember! The trip would not be "complete" without our fishing trips with Charle. All of my kids have fished with Charlie as well as my father who is now 89 years old and can't... More
