    Good size specks just arrived at Rudee- Apr 14 Report

    As expected, good size specks just arrived at Rudee, VA.
    But I didn’t do well as I prepared. I caught about 10 specks. Only one was 22 inch long while some kayakers caught specks at 23-26”. I captured some large specks caught by other yakers on the video.

    When specks weren’t biting I fished for puppy drums. I caught about 10 puppy drums at 16-20”. I released three 18 inch puppy drum because they were very skinny. Also caught a 15" grey trout (weakfish) and 4 20" bluefish.

    Now specks are in at Rudee in full force.

    Nice fishing! This is my 4th season kayak fishing and I have never fished Rudee (and I only live an hour from it). Maybe I'll try it this year. Glad to see nice specks this year.

    I can't believe you never fished Rudee. I want to see your report soon. Just in case, 1/4 jig with large gap hook (3/0 or 4/0). Sometimes I use 1/2 OZ. Red color for Puppy, Lead for specks
