The weather has been bad for 2 weeks. After skipping fishing last weekend, I was determined to fish CBBT (Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel and Rudee Inlet, VA. My primary goal was catching a trophy tautog at CBBT, VA, and the second goal was catching a puppy drum (redfish) in Rudee Inlet, VA.

I stopped by the beach launch site for CBBT early in the morning for tautog fishing. AS forecasted, It was calm for 4 hours before the wind picked up. I managed to catch only 1 tautog at 24" (trophy size).

I fished Rudee Inlet for Puppy Drums. There, I heard that puppies had been biting but not Specks (speckled sea trout). Though, I found only one kayaker caught a puppy drum that day, and about 15 groups were skunked. I casted for 4 hours without a bite bite. While casting I found specks on Fish-Finder. So I trolled. I caught a striper at 23", and 2 Specks at 18" and 20 ".
