Saltwater – Fishing has definitely improved since our last report. Rockfish are being caught from numerous places, such as the MMBT, JRB, the CBBT, inside the York River, and inside inlets off the Rappahannock. Night fishing has been far more productive.

Saltwater- Anglers targeting Red Drum are having excellent luck, especially at night. The Shoals in the area of the CBBT, the pilings and islands of the CBBT, and the barrier islands of the Eastern Shore are all producing nice fish. Live bait and cut bait, both, are working. Cobia action is still good at the bridge-tunnel, but many are targeting ocean areas, particularly buoys. Live eels, Spot, or Croaker, and bucktails are all good. Some are drifting live bait just above the bottom with decent luck, without having to sight … Read More »
