Saltwater- September is usually an exciting month for saltwater fishing. Big numbers of Spot are typically caught just about everywhere. Inside the Rappahannock, York, and the Potomac Rivers, Lynnhaven Pier, Oceanview Pier, and the CBBT Pier, are all reporting catches of Spot. This bite will surely improve as Sept. progresses. Bloodworms have been best, but Sabiki rigs with Fishbites produce well also. The Red Drum bite also continues to improve throughout the bay, with notable catches coming from the mouth of the Potomac recently. Large catches of Drum have also … Read More »

Saltwater- Cobia action is still red hot right now. Anglers are scoring big catches from inside the bay as well as the oceanfront. Cobia up to 83 lbs have been caught over the last week. Sight casting has been producing the majority of the large catches, partly due to the fact that most everyone is sight casting rather than chumming. Eels, and live Spot or Croaker, are hard to beat for highly pressured or larger fish. Bucktails are landing their share of large fish also. The CBBT seems to be … Read More »
