Spots were biting near high tide, round heads and pompano at low tide., Two heavers out with spot heads but no strikes. Lovely day with,thank God, cool temps. Looked "drummy".

Great report Adder. I did look "drummy" when I was out there earlier in the week but no takers as well.

Here it is mid September and I have been looking for menhaden at BBNWR with no success...
Surely the menhaden fleet are not THAT effective???‽

Fished yesterday at BBNWR using peanut bunker as I could not find mullet at my cast net spot. For heaver baits I rubber band two baits on a ten/0 hook which works okay. Got a 27 inch red drum àt dead low tide. Fishbites caught 2 small black drum. Water very drummy.

I was at Dam Neck this morning with JR and he was telling me that last Wednesday out there they had a run of 23 - 27 inch reds. He said they were hitting at every cast although I am aware of the fisherman embellishment factor.:D

Not sure what to do Saturday because we are not getting good information on the website. There's a rumor of trout at Lynnhaven, drum àt LIP & BBNWR, and trout at Hampton Flats....
Someone give me a hint!!!

Well, almost perfect condition Saturday, EXCEPT the wind was hard south with a mother of south to North current...could not hold with 10oz wing or 10oz storm sinkers,..had to use Sputnik...nice run of spots midday, making me stay until dark. SOMEONE released a big drum, which drifted down current belly up... I followed it til it flipped over and swam away....I guess some newbie had him out of the water too long.

For a change of pace and escape the wind went trout fishing at Lynnhaven Saturday...spent a rainy windy day wading here and there for 2 specks. Lots of ignorant tourists around here still. And ten bucks admission to the Narrows with them irritated the good humor out of me...I am ready for cold weather! Chase them off the waters!

When you refer to "The Narrows" are you talking about Lynnhaven Inlet (under the bridge) or, "The Narrows Beach" at First Landing State Park?
