I'm not familiar with where to go kayak fishing. I keep going to the same lake, but I want to try other areas. Any suggestions for a beginner, both to kayaking and kayak fishing? Thanks.

Fredericksburg would be a little far for everyday stuff, but I would like to do some traveling, get some camping and kayaking to test new waters. :)

Lots of good places down in Tidewater. Just be careful of bridges and tides, they can rip through a lot of those areas pretty quick.

You can't drive 10 minutes without finding a place to launch in Tidewater.
In Virginia Beach a great place is at Owls Creek (at the Marine Science Museum) on General Booth. Rudee Inlet is easy to launch from. There are many freshwater places, such as Lake Wright. If you're adventurous, you can launch at the base of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel, but you'll want to go with someone experienced so you don't get overwhelmed and in danger.
In Norfolk, there are boat launches throughout the city - check their parks and rec website. Actually that's good advice for all of the local cities. Suffolk has some really great launches, my favorite is Sleepy Hole - a top notch launch but a bit of a long walk.
My personal favorite is at the Green Mile pier in Hampton. It is a very short walk and you have some really quick access to some really productive water for catching numbers of fish although they may not be the biggest fish.

Unfortunately, I don't know anyone who's experienced so I'm trying to get comfortable with easier spots. I'd like to try the Chesapeake Bay one of these days but I don't think I'm ready for that yet. The most current I've dealt with was the James River by chippokes which wasn't bad at all.

I fish out of VA Beach every week, and I try to fish many different spots. Where are you fishing now to get an idea of where to point you to? I am open to guide you wherever if you need help. I've been actively looking for fishing partners. Shoot me a text if you'd like 7576720215. I mainly fish salt these days because I don't know a lot of bass spots, maybe we can collaberate.
