I went out on a headboat last Sat, and we caught a lot of herring (and Spanish Macks). Maybe you can visit on the weekend? Sunday is MUCH less crowded than Sat.

Fishing Squid, are you sure they were Spanish Macks and not Boston (Atlantic) Mackeral? Spanish don't usually run until the water is in the mid 60's. Right now is the best time for Boston Macks on headboats. They are small, striped and oily. The Spanish is bigger, has yellow diamonds on the sides and is not so oily. How big were they? As for the herring, best place in VA would probably be Walkers Dam in the spring. Should be running before to long now.
