Went to sandbridge (shore right next to Kabler) to try out my home made high low bottom rigs. There was an awesome bite when we got there at 4:30 caught a small something maybe youll know it was about 12" looked like a spanish mac, had some nasty looking teeth on him. He hit off of my cast splash. Then it was all croaker ranging from 7" on up to about 12" (grilling em now). As the bite died (with the out going tide) we pulled in a 18" shark!!!!! It was too small and too pretty to keep so threw em back in hopes that he will grow up and come back to me. Left at 8:45. Any one else??????
If you were looking to go out Id go ahead and gamble that soon would be a good time for you to make the trip from richmond to try it out. If stuffs been bitting for me, out on the shore of sand bridge, Im sure that where ever it is you go they'll be runnin too! Id be willing to conceed that you better do it before the conditions change.
Croaker were biting pretty well at Yorktown beach, on the outgoing. Caught and released a 17" rockfish. Saw some old folks cleaning-up on smaller spot. gonna hit the Rappahannock tommorow, but not shore fishing.

Fished the JRB yesterday from 10 to 2 then it got to hot for Mom. She caught one nice spot and we catch about seven very, very small spot. Someone said a man caught 4 nice croaker, but I didn't see anyone catch much. Did see one tiny flounder reeled in and I know the guy debated whether he was going to keep it. I mean no more than 8 or 9 inches. Luckily he threw it back because I know I won't have been able to keep my mouth shut. Fishing sure has been off this year.

Optimism for an entirely awesome season of fishing seems to abound. Hope you get a chance to make it out our way and wet a line. Would love to see you make one of our PSYCO meetings... last Saturday of each month in Ocean View.
