Midnight Sun Charters 

The roomy 50 ft. Midnight Sun, based out of Reedville, Virginia, is a custom-built charter boat   by Jennings Boatyard.  With safety and comfort    in mind, Capt. Ryan Rogers and builder Larry   Jennings designed the boat, and after 18 months of blood, sweat, and tears, she was put into service in May, 2003.  The Midnight Sun is powered by an 800 hp C-15 Caterpillar Marine Diesel engine.   This modern engine is computerized and meets all Coast Guard emissions requirements—meaning no smoke or annoying diesel smell while running.  Fast, stable, and seaworthy—ask any customer  and they will tell you:  the Midnight Sun is the queen of the fleet and considered one of the best fishing boats in the Northern Neck area.  Enjoy a day fishing the Chesapeake Bay, or maybe a    sunset dinner cruise for up to 25 people.  Capt. Rogers has been working on local charter boats since he was a teenager and knows how to catch bluefish, tuna, mackerel, drum, dolphin, rockfish, and more. www.fishmidnightsun.com

Southern Tide Guide Service

The Three Sons was built by Tiffany Yachts in Burgess, Virginia. She is 39 feet long, 14 feet wide, and powered by a single six cylinder diesel engine that allows for a comfortable 16-knot cruise.  Her width allows for ample fishing room for six people, as well as a comfortable ride in most sea conditions.  Her cabin is spacious enough for 8 people to get inside out of the weather, and with the aft curtains drawn, you will stay very warm and dry during fall and spring  fishing trips.  She is equipped with the latest in electronics, and also has an enclosed head for your privacy.  After Tiffany Yachts completed this vessel in 1999, she stayed on the Chesapeake Bay until 2003, when she was purchased and    relocated to Montauk, New York.  She remained there for ten years where her owners took great care of her, until the summer of 2013 when she was purchased by Capt. Joseph Biddlecomb and returned home to the Chesapeake Bay in Reedville,  Virginia for service as the charter boat Three Sons.  Capt. Joe grew up fishing in the Northern Neck as a third-generation charter boat captain, and can have you catching rockfish, trout, bluefish, Spanish mackerel, croaker, cobia, red drum, or flounder depending on the season. www.southerntideguideservice.com
