its been years since i've been there and i was recently at gander mtn. and i was talking to another surfcaster and he said that over this summer there have been 6+ foot sharks caught on a regular basis and several drum and stripers. is there anyone that can verify this or tell what kind of fish are caught there.

Colonial Beach

Trey, I have not caught any sharks there but I have seen a couple in the area.
The largest was at least 6/7 ft., swimming north about 200 yrds north of the 301 Bridge.
Have caught several stripers and bunches of croaker and spot there.

A couple of years back, David Graham cought a real nice (I think 48") striper on a fly just off of the beach down near the marina.


Hope this helps.

i would say this: Right times of the year there you can catch stripers and puppy drum, among other salty critters like croaker, spot. However, I wouldnt spend too much effort on the 6' sharks.

this is true, I was down there last year when a 5 1/2 foot shark was caught

it was a black tip, and there are pictures out there somewhere to prove it

I was completely shocked.
