Wintry weather had a grip on Virginia Beach last week, though that was unusual. The weekly party boat trip to Norfolk Canyon was weathered out on Saturday with Rudee Inlet Charters, Capt. Skip Feller said. Wind blew that day, but 5 inches of snow fell last week. Then the snow turned to ice, and that paralyzes the area. “Just not set up for it,” he said. Schools were closed every day except Monday last week, and reopened this Monday. The unique trips fish the canyon, a few hours off Virginia Beach, each winter, for catches that can include blueline tilefish, black belly rosefish, wreckfish, barrelfish, golden tilefish and groupers. Usually, bluelines are targeted first, in relatively shallow water. If enough bluelines are bagged, and seas aren’t too rough, the trips next push farther from shore, to fish deeper water, for those additional catches. Call: 757-422-5700 or 757-425-3400.
