Fishing continues to be good all over. Hunting season is rapidly approaching. Get your license and chores done! The croaker will be moving out in the next few weeks. Cooler nights will send ‘em south. Get them while you can. Sadly, summer is slipping away.
Perns is selling worms on a regular basis, but customers are tight lipped about what they are catching. Catfish are hitting very well on the river now, but the best baits are still eels and cutbait. Ken’s has eels for sale. The bass anglers are finding fish on an incoming tide at creek mouths. Cranks and jigs are the better choices right now.
Aqua Land reported mostly catfish hitting this week however a few puppy drum and croaker were caught from their beach. Squid and bloodworms were the best baits.
Ken’s Tackle in Spotsylvania reported a few small flounder at Colonial Beach. Nice stripers and croaker are being caught in the river at night. Puppy drum and catfish are reportedly willing customers. Bloodworms, squid and shrimp are the top three baits with squid being the best one.
Winter Harbor reported croaker, perch and spot on bloodworms on the river hitting the same baits. Catfish are hitting all baits and a few nice croaker are being caught.
Motts Run –Don Minor reported that catfish are the hot ticket this week with fish 3-4 pounds hitting nightcrawlers and chicken liver. There have been lots of sunfish caught around the piers on red wigglers and small bass on topwater lures. Last, the night catfishing event on Sep. 20 will be the last one for the season.
