Oops....meant to say "the 2017 Spring/Summer fishing season."Lesner is down, Oceanfront Pier will possibly be down, and now add the CBBT.
The 2016 Spring/Summer fishing season definitely will not start on a positive note for the Virginia Beach area.
Let's hope they don't install "no trespassing" signs along the Rudee shore fishing area on top of all this.
That's one of the many things I love about the Florida keys...starting in key largo down to marathon there are many bridges that accommodate fishermen that are free aside from buying a fishing license. Really sucks the seagull pier is closing. I've seen people camped out there for days at a time. One of the biggest flounder I ever caught was off the seagull. I remember a few times around thanksgiving when my brother and I were the only lunatics braving howling winds to catch some stripers freezing our butts off taking whatever that little shelter that spot about half way out offered....taking refuge in the outside bathroom that was so warm. Watching the waves slam into the rocks and sending salt spray into the parking lot....good times.Total bummer. My favorite pier and a great place to stop and view!! In fact Virginia sucks at proving access to salt water and making available what is there. In South Carolina (and many other states) when a new bridge goes up, most often the old bridge is made available for fishing. Sometimes they cut out the middle and you can fish from either side. I had my fingers crossed when the new bridge went up in West Point, VA but noooo. What a WASTE OF OPPORTUNITY.
