I think you'd have a much better shot at King's from the Va Beach pier and LIP... I know that a few Kings end up in the Bay around mid-July, but they are typically smaller and less abundant than on the ocean front... Just some food for thought... I hope the Flatties and Macks make a good showing at the new pier this season:fishing:

Let's hope the predictions of a good Flattie season are true... The Mackeral bite was the best I'd seen in 5 years last season... LOTS of BIG fish!!!!:D Sure gets the blood boiling just thinking about it!!!!

There was a time that fishing on top was allowed. But the fish were taken on the bottom. So that is why the rule went into effect, creating more room for more people. Pin rigging takes up allot more space. But the city will be running things so there will be some trial and error on the pier rules. The best rule is do as the locals do, not say.

I fished off that pier alot from the mid 80s to 1992. Learned to pin rig first off Avalon and Kitty Hawk before I even fished Buckroe. Even though I lived in Newport News. I remember always having a lot of current out there at times. Even a live bluefish had trouble staying just below the surface most of the time. A live bait would last that long out there because of the current. Some of the locals that fished out there, who also fished the NC piers ,tried a pin rig from time to time with the same results. Bottom fishing seemed the best way to go. I wonder if some of the names I remember from Buckroe are on this board?? They were some great charactors that fished out there back in the day. Even know I went to the "dark side "with a boat, I may have to give it another try this summer.
