Default Where to spearfish near Virginia beach

Hey all,

I'm new to the area and want to spearfish as much as possible all times of year. I'm living in Virginia beach and have a solid 25 ft Carolina Classic that can get me anywhere and back most days!

Where should I be looking to spearfish, and for what? Optimum times of year?

Best!

Freedive or scuba?

Lots of people freedive the Chesapeake light tower and the bay bridge tunnel pilings (be mindful of the current)

You also have tons of wrecks off va beach that you can hunt flounder and tog if you are using scuba. Google some of the local dive boats and they list some of the wrecks they dive. Pick up Gary Gentiles book on shipwrecks off Virginia link here https://www.amazon.com/Shipwrecks-Vi.../dp/0962145335

For sure! Great start thanks! What time of year is the water clear and where is it the clearest?

Default Clarity-

I have noticed much difference in the clarity other than pre/post storm times that kick up a bunch of junk.

Depth is 40' and you can usually see the bottom. I sent you an IM so please take a look at your inbox. I've been out there 40+ times and always happy to go more!
