Went down to Norfolk last weekend. The pier was pretty windy with the wind head towards the shore. There were a few undersized striped bass being pulled out and crabs on the fishing lines. A bit crowded, so I opted not to fish and just dropped a couple crab traps instead.
The wind blew my slack line around a piling covered with sharp oysters and I lost a trap. the other trap didn't produce anything.
Went to scout out Lynnhaven Inlet and saw a nice spot for fishing behind the Brock center and wildlife refuge. Lots of folks fishing, but did not see anything caught.
Under the brdige, I saw people pulling up some undersized spadefish and a few croaker.
At the bait shop by the marina, a guy who claimed to catch crabs for a living told me to go to Crabs Creek further up the inlet. He guaranteed that after the hurricane those crabs would be starving and ready to be pulled up.
