I've taken a week away from work to come down and do some fishing. I was hoping to get a shot at some cobia, but these water temps around here have pretty much put an end to that idea. Guess I'll have to hit the Banks to have a shot at them.

I'll be putzing around Lynnhaven, Willoughby, Buckroe, the Seagull, Sandbridge and a few places (e.g. the bars) on the Banks during this week. Say howdy if I see you on the water or slouched over a pint.

Flea, gonna hit the Lesner, west side, outside bar tomorrow a/m about 0430 for an early-morning-before-work run. Outgoing tide, w/ low @ 0630 & current til 0800 and light s/w winds. Should be good conditions for fishing and maybe catching if our "finned-friends" bother to show. Give it a thought if you're gonna try this area first before you hit the banks. If you do it's a light-wt. spinning gear/ lure-throwing area.

Well day one was not too great. After doing some yard work for my grandparents, I hit Lynnhaven in the afternoon. A few folks had caught stripers earlier in the day (one guy had an obviously undersized fish) and a few small flounder came in.

I guess the highlight of the day came when I saw/heard a huge splash under the Lesner bridge out of the corner of my eye. Thinking a dolphin had breached, I turned to see a head surface. The head yelled at another guy on the bridge, "Come on you [expletive], jump!" So the other idiot followed suit and plunged into the inlet.

The second guy surfaced and seconds after they swam to shore, police boats swarmed the inlet. The two daredevils were never caught and on this day did not win a Darwin award, but about a half an hour later a car drove over the bridge, slowed down, and one of the guys stuck his head out the window and howled at the top of his lungs. Sort of like a wolf pissing to mark his turf, I guess.

I swung by Lighthouse to pick up a couple of reels and ran into Fishman (who works there). While explaining why I blew up the site last week :( , the guy in line asked who we were on the site. Turns out it was chest2head & glassy. We talked for awhile, then I headed home and made dinner.

I will get that cobe this week....

Guess I'll keep putting reports here....

Yesterday I hit the Seagull in the afternoon. Nothing but a blue and two skates, one of which actually bit on the eel I had out for cobia.

Today I swung by Lynnhaven a couple of times. Nothing was happening, although someone did apparently catch a big black drum earlier in the day (I wasn't there to see it).

I went by Chick's around 6:30 and put out squid and peelers. Within minutes I had a 19-inch black drum on the beach, followed soon by a 17-incher. It was beautiful--there was almost no one on the beach at all and the air temps were perfect. I ran into chest2head&glassy again, who was pitching a bucktail for blues.

Tomorrow, I'm hitting the Rudee headboats for seabass.

Well, the action on the head boat was pretty slow. We ran out past the Chesapeake LIght Tower in search of a wreck that had fish on it.

I only caught three, but then again my third fish was the winner of the biggest fish pool...fifty bucks :D

If you want seabass you should stop in OC and try the morning star. The price is $70 but the trip is limited to 25 people and the captain does everything he can to catch you a limit and I think there are a few tautog left.
