Well like all of us can,t ever stop this S^%$,took the grandson up to the south end of the Lynnhaven river last evening, he was po,ed that i didn,t take him yesterday!trib,s run way inland,have to start cking about now, they start showing up as far inland as Trashmore,London Bridge Creek,and as far up as Bow Creek Golf Course. i caught 25 lb fish year before we had no rain and the salinity was farther inland!, we caught 6 schoolies last night on light tackle i laughed my butt off as these fish kicked my gransons butt, but in the end he won, 6 In. Storms. Just fyi City has a floating dock under the bridge at the pep boys on va beach blvd,didn,t fish it last night but from here on out should get more productive, storms and rattle traps, park in the back of the lot and follow the path, less than 20 yards,theres a parking area around through the neighborhood but farther walk, blue crab on a fishfinder works as bait verywell year round.

Either your keyboard is missing some keys or it appears you may have had a little too much out there. Or maybe its me and I've had to much to read. Anyway, glad you guys got some action. Where were again?

Wan that would be sweet to go fish a little creek like that that no one really knows about. Is the action steady or is it hit or miss and if they are biteing is it a constant almost constant or here and their?

thanks for the sweet report maybe youll see me out their some time.

I fished that spot a few times and it's hit and miss at best. I wouldn't get to overly excited about this one spot, but I think the point of the post is that the stripers are up the area tidal creeks.... as well as scattered throughout the bay.

Stripers up the creek

pretty steady all year on hard crab, but this time of year the bigger fish come up here, heavy action on moving water, slacks up when the tide stops either way.storms are the ticket, bigger seems to work better.Fish 4Food, is right about other spot it is slower.

Another spot

the creek that feeds the lower lake at trashmore is also a hot spot. you can fish it at Bonney rd. and at trashmore, found it bass fishing and had a couple citation fish on spinnerbaits a couple years ago! good place for a Yak?

Can ya fish from the RR Bridge? I think I've seen people on it before but never ventured back there. That is the same creek you originally posted about and believe it also crosses Lynnhaven.

Grand Slam, the best place I have found for stripers is Ft Monroe, then the bridge tunnel and around the area Jetty's. I've caught some up the creeks before but not in decent numbers. Best tidal water Striper I've caught have been on the NW River, but I don't normally target them in the creeks because I found them more plentiful in other spots.

i was just woundering because i though it would be cool to catch one out of one just something different to do. i kind of weird like that i wana catch fish i places that you wouldnt normally think of catching that species just like this case i would have never thought of going to one of these places to catch a striper.

do the same regs apply with them?

Stripers up the creek

another place is the bridge at Hells Creek on just past Indian Cove.sandbridge rd, Big shiners on a fish finder rig in the evenings. you would be suprized!! Corys ditch on the Knotts Island causeway is good for non stop action, you can get a NC lisense at the general store along with some good eats.both places have a place to park.you can pick up live bait a Bruces,beside Kmart on General Booth or your place of choice.
