Fishing continues to really be worth a trip out to the waterways in our areas.
Aqualand (301-259-0572) had reports of lots of catfish being caught on just about everything. Anglers have also been catching nice size perch. An angler yesterday caught a really nice size puppy drum.
Ken’s Tackle (898-1011) reported that crappie were taking jigs and grubs in Aquia Creek. Minnows are also working well. Colonial Beach crabbers are seeing some jumbo sized crabs too.
Rollins Seafood (663-3597) reported some beautiful crabs this week. Give them a call if you want crabs. Mark Rollins also noted that puppy drum, many of them legal size, are in the creeks and river. A few croaker are still around. Catfish are after cutbait.
Ken’s reported striper hitting at the City Dock in town. Crappie are hitting at Little Falls. Fish the changing tide for the best fishing.
Catfish continue to hit well on everything. Bass fishing is still good. Fish the wood on the changing tide.
Motts Run Reservoir (540-786-8989) reported more citation Shellcracker. Catfish are still biting and a few 18 inch bass were hitting too. The bass were hitting topwater lures. Motts is a gorgeous place to fish. Consider visiting this month before they close for the season. You will likely encounter very few people.
Captain Ryan Rogers (804-580-0245) reports good bluefishing and the rockfish season has started too. Give him a call to get your fresh dinner of rockfish catered to your group.
Specks are hitting further south in marshes and inlets near Virginia Beach. Flounder are still hitting and a few Spanish are on the oceanfront. Croaker and spot are also hitting further south of us. Get in on the action before it is gone for the year!
