Salt Water- We’re 2 weeks into Rockfish season and things are still a bit slow. Catches are being made inside the James River at the JRB, and at the islands of the CBBT.

The structures of the CBBT are also harboring Red Drum. However, the Drum react better to cut bait or live bait, fished along the bottom. Another bottom feeding fish present at … Read More »

Saltwater- The Spot run is increasing throughout the bay. Reports are excellent from Lynnhaven Pier, the JRB, and the Rappahannock River. Bloodworms have been best. These areas have also been good for the Puppy Drum and Speckled Trout. Flounder action has picked up, but recent rough weather has slowed things down this week, and could get worse, if we receive more tropical storms. However, ocean wrecks have been consistent for the Flounder. Cobia action close to the CBBT has been good, despite the foul weather. Anglers are adapting well to … Read More »
