It seems that the fall spot run is better in VA Beach Pier compared to Lynnhaven Pier so I am heading there this Saturday. I was told that the bloodworms in VA Beach pier is being sold for $8.50/dozen and that they are very small and thin. In this connection, can anybody recommend any bait shop on the way to VBP that sells BW a little cheaper and healthier?

Bloodworms

Coming down I-64 Get off the next exit after Busch Gardens, It should be Lee Hall Yorktown Naval Station(I rarely travel on that section of I-64) RT 238. You will take a left on RT 143 and follow that down to a BP station on the right. Excellent Blood Worms at a great price. Then take a right on 238 and left back on I-64.

Thanks!!

Thanks for your responses, Kajun and Digger.

Kajun,

How do I get to that Lighthouse Tackle coming from I-64? Are they open around 6 to 6:30 am? I sure would not like paying that $8.50/dozen in VBP. It is looking good for this Friday and Saturday in VA Beach with this NE winds.

Digger:

About how many miles is that BP station from I-64? Are then open 24 hours?

Va Beach Pier

I went to the Va Beach pier last night (Nonthing,--didn't even see a spot) or anything with fins nor scales. It seens if you want to catch the spots you must be there at the right time. It's either you catch a cooler full or you catch nothing. My uncle was ther on friday and he managed to rake in 90 jumbo spots. I tried it after work yesterday and lets say, I got what you call it SKUNKED.

Not sure about the price, but the closest place to buy bait around VA Beach Pier is 17th Street Tackle. Also goes by Princess Anne Distributing. They are on 17th street and 2 blocks from the oceanfront on the left. Also a Penn authorized dealer.

Fished the VA Beach Pier on Sunday, 10/12. Caught a cooler full of yellow belly spot. They ran from 11am until 4pm on the outgoing tide. A few strippers were also caught and released. Bloodworms were 8.50

Fellas, We did a little experiment on catching Spot with bloodworms versus clams. We did not experience any differnece in the willingness of the Spot to hit bloodworms over clams. However, we caught a more variety of fish on the clams. Clams caught flounder, spot, pig fish and croakers. Bloodworms caught spot and pig fish and a few toads. We only used 6 clams vice two dozen bloodworms. Came home with over 75 spot, two at citation size. I'll buy clams at 2.50 a dozen from now on!!! :D
