Default 3-4 Day Vacation Ideas

Looking for some ideas for a 3-4 day vacation within 4 or 5 hours of Pt Pleasant NJ to trailer boat 23 ft and do some inshore fishing. Air BNB would be great if it had a dock. Probably 3rd week in August
Thanks for any ideas or links for suggestions.

Cape Charles VA is a nice spot where you can fish the Chesapeake for cobia, reds, whatever else is around. On the western shore side a friend did something similar to that on the Rappahannock river and had a good time chasing blue fish and spanish mackeral, bottom fishing, and there were some cobia up that way as well last year at least. Did well crabbing too. A couple of ideas that popped into my head among surely many good options.

Lewes DE is always a nice spot for a few days.
You can rent a slip in the canal in the heart of lewes. Lewes Harbor Marina is right there for bait and fuel (Irish Eyes for some suds)
You have some protected and inshore fishing if the weather is a bit snotty
Canal has Striper, flounder etc. Great crabbing!!!!
Nice spot for tubing
Run down the canal into Dewey and dock up for lunch or head out to Indian River Inlet

Big red drum that time of year out of Oriental, NC. A little longer drive, but it can be great fishing and the marina hotel is not that expensive.

Bite in the upper Chesapeake Bay is usually pretty good in August for resident striped bass. Look at St. Michaels, Chestertown, or Rock Hall area

Sadly, if inshore fishing is the goal, I recommend against my hometown. Canal striped bas are few and far between that time of year and the flounder have moved out to the wrecks. If catching fish is not a main priority, I agree.

I second those that said VA by the CBBT

I would also look at going north for world class Buzzards Bay fluke and sea bass, as well as maybe taking a shot at inshore BFT. All of the above ideas look great, but might be better going north than south in dead heat of summer.

That time of year is prime time cobia sight fishing in the lower bay. Cape Charles would be a perfect spot for it.

If your Squaw is coming with you the town of Cape Charles has plenty for her to do. Get her a golf cart to explore the town while you slay the Cobia.

Why not do both - Fish for cobia out of Cape Charles or Saxis ramp one day and the other day fish Chincoteague inshore for fluke.

From Pt Pleasant, I’d seriously consider trailing to Montauk NY and fishing for fluke, scup, C bass and stripers instead of coming south. It will cost a lot more for a place to rent in August when compared to ESVA which is comparably inexpensive. If renting a waterfront place in Chincoteague, pay particular attention to how far it is away from the inlet. The Assateague channel side can be tricky if you have a larger boat. The backside (Chincoteague channel) has plenty of houses with docks and a good channel to run to the inlet.
