The Mid-Atlantic Rockfish Shootout began in 2004 – born out of a Virginia Beach fisherman’s love for angling the shores of the Atlantic along the Virgnia Beach oceanfront. It occurred to him, as it has to many, that not only are the waters off of Virginia Beach plentiful with fish, but they truly offer as good – if not better – fishing than anywhere on the East Coast. Proving it would become the passion of the tournament director, Mike Standing. This passion has catapulted the Mid-Atlantic Rockfish Shootout to become one of the largest Rockfish tournaments in the country and has helped Virginia Beach garner its proper angling recognition.
To date, the Rockfish Shootout has provided thousands of pounds of skinless rockfish filets to area foodbanks (well into the tens of thousands of individual meals). Also to date they have donated over $25,000 to CHKD to help build a family room at the hospital. Several thousand more have been donated to a local scholarship fund, a local fisherman in need and various other fishing-related organizations.
