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.

Thanks for the report! Saw some crabs pulled up from the Elizabeth River last weekend but they were small.
