  8. Fished the back end of Fisherman's Island just behind the breakers in about 17ft of water from mid-morning through early evening last Saturday with no luck other than skates and sharks. Saw a handful of other boats come and go with none having any luck. Used crab, clam and shrimp. Boarded by Coast Guard for inspection and they also mentioned it seemed that no one else around us was having luck that day. Picked up and headed back in around 1800 after wind kept getting stronger and bringing colder weather so we didn't get to see if the night bite hit. Anyone else have any luck around any of the shoals?
  9. Tautog, red drum, black drum, striped bass, flounder, trout and croaker are all now available in Virginia waters. The best flounder fishing is taking place in our seaside inlets. The tautogs are being caught on ocean bottom structure and on structure in the lower Chesapeake Bay. Red drum are here and will be available throughout … Continue reading The post Virginia Saltwater Fishing Report appeared first on Virginia Beach Fishing. View the full article

Flounder fishing is picking up every … Continue reading The post Virginia Saltwater Fishing Report | Tautogs | Flounder | Drum appeared first on Virginia Beach Fishing. View the full article

  20. By Staff | TH Spangler | Connie Barbour Strong harsh winds have made it nearly impossible for Virginia anglers to do much fishing lately. Everyone is still waiting for calmer, warmer days and a speckled trout, red drum bite. Water temperatures remain a bit on the chilly side. Tautog action should still be good on the … Continue reading The post Warmer Hatteras Water Brings With It Red Drum Bite appeared first on Virginia Beach Fishing. View the full article

    Back Bay blitz!

    Well, in the spirit of "keeping the people updated", here is my fishing report from the North River in North Carolina from Saturday, 3/31. In excess of 75, maybe 100 large crappie and SUPER large bluegill, with a mix in of bass. All caught under bobbers with either small minnows or night crawlers. Best bank fishing day I have had in years for those species....maybe ever! Did not see or hear a soul all day! And I fished alone and released EVERYTHING. If ya wanna catch fish in the spring or winter, I suggest you: 1)Get a North Carolina License 2)Go exploring everything bigger than a mud puddle, and don't be afraid to change up tactics. We fished four out of the last six Saturdays in Back Bay with FANTASTIC FISHING, up to the middle of March when it all changed up and the crappie were mostly runts...then I went south this week. 3)Meat baits, baby...I don't remember catching ANYTHING this late winter/early spring on artificial....and I have tried using them every week. Good luck to you all. BA PS I think I could have caught on flyrod, but it is tough to do when you are getting bites all day with hardly a break. Maybe next weekend.
  22. By DR Ken Neill III | Peninsula Salt Water Sport Fisherman’s Association So, what has been happening out on the water so far? In addition to the great bluefin fishing out of Oregon Inlet, both yellowfin tuna and some bigeye tuna have been caught. Blackfin tuna are being caught out of Hatteras.

  24. By VBSF Staff | TH Spangler | Connie Barbour Virginia Beach anglers need four or five warm days in a row to kick off the speckled trout, puppy drum seasons inside Lynnhaven and Rudee Inlets.

Cold inshore water is holding … Continue reading The post Virginia Beach Saltwater Fishing Report appeared first on Virginia Beach Fishing. View the full article

    Okay awesome thank you very much , I mean I got two decent setup I think lol , I got a Offshore Tighline reel with an Offshore 7’ medium heavy fast action with 25lb mono and then a shamano 4000f with same pole / with braided , not sure what test it is though .. definitely head to that tackle shop and check it out though .

    There are a lot of affordable rods out there but don't skimp on your reel. Cheap reels full of plastic will only last a couple of weeks.The greater the amount of steel ball bearings, the smoother the retrieval. Many recommend getting the reel with the most ball bearing that you can afford, but with 5 you’ll get plenty of smoothness at an affordable price. Stop by a shop like Long Bay Pointe Bait and Tackle and they'll show you some nice combos. Lures vary widely depending on which fish are available. Mirror Lures, metal spoons, bucktails, leadheads/swimming tails are all popular. Tight Lines! http://longbaypointebaitandtackle.com/
