Winter Harbor reported that most anglers are seeing lots of smaller rockfish, but a few were keeper size. Small bucktails are taking fish when anglers can get out. The wind has been terrible this week, making boating unsafe.
Ken’s reported that small bucktails are catching keeper stripers, but few fish are being caught on larger lures.
Aqua Land reported squid was the bait of choice for rockfish, but fish are small.
Captain Ryan Rogers (804-580-0245) reports very good rockfishing, with the sizes and girth of the fish picking up.

Deer season is going strong. The rut has peaked but a few bucks are still chasing does. Duck and goose season has been fair to good. The key is always having access to a good spot.
Squirrels are hard to find in most areas due to the lack of acorns. Look for holly trees. They are eating lots of holly berries now.
