Virginia anglers are blessed with waters that hold stripers, red and black drum, and cobia. Miles of fishable beaches and plenty of piers make the mouth of the Chesapeake the place where northern and southern fish meet.
Hit the surf for the last few hours of high tide from 730pm till about 1045 pm and had some decent results. Ended up with 1 sting ray, 2 small croaker and 2 whiting, with one being a solid 12” and thick. Got excited when I heard my drag started screaming but unfortunately it was just the ray...
Heading down the week of the 23rd for the first time. Was supposed to go last fall, but Dorian had a different plan.
Any fishing reports? Would fishing be similar to what's' in the Dare county thread?
Advice on fishing spots, ocean or sound? No 4 wheel drive, so have to hoof it.
Planning on doing some surf fishing this September in the Outer Banks. Will be my first time surf fishing and I'm not really sure on what sizes and types of hooks I should be using. I plan to just soak some bait (cut mullet, FB's, shrimp, sandfleas, etc.) in the surf on some double bottom rigs...
Spent a few hours on the banks of the susquehanna yesterday. Caught a whole bunch of short stripers and finally got into the white perch. Then they turned the water on. Went over to Cecil side for the evening and soaked some cut Bait and a live perch. Got one channel. Beautiful day overall.
