Bob's Marina Chincoteague Virginia
1959, Bob Pohlmeyer (Capt. Bob) received some not very promising
news from his doctors. He decided to live life to the fullest
and follow his dream that being working on the water, having
a bait and tackle store and renting "a few" boats. Never
realizing he would be around long enough to experience "living
his dream", by 1960 he was "up and running"
with about 6 wooden boats and a marsh where they were docked.
Initially, we were known as Capt. Bobs Fishing Camp. During
the "unregulated" years of the 60's and 70's when flounder
were being landed anywhere from 100 300 to a boat, those
6 wooden boats were replaced with 100 fiberglass John Dory boats
and that small patch of marsh grew into 5+ acres of docks, piers
and parking. Talk about living your dream!! Who said positive
thinking doesn't have its rewards?
over the years plus anglers buying personal boats has greatly
reduced the rental fleet. Sadly, in 1995, Capt. Bob passed away
but the business is still family operated and is now known as
Capt. Bobs Marina.
