  2. There are still a few big stripers hanging around the bay, but it’s all catch and release now. The capture season closed midnight Dec 31st. Most of the big fish … a few over 50 pounds … are falling for live eels fished by those launching out of the Cape Charles, Kiptopeke VA area. The … Continue reading The post A Lot Of Catch and Release Now appeared first on Virginia Beach Fishing - VBSF.net. View the full article
  3. First Time Out Since April Att
  4. I could probably learn some local stuff from you, even though I am born and raised here. I am still using a boat, set up for spider-rigging crappie. Gonna try to post that report, I mentioned. Always had trouble posting pictures here, tough. Thanks for the report. I want to try Blackwater, soon.
  5. And thanks for the reply! Fished Saturday at CHICKAHOMINY with eels and cut shad. Two good runs on shad, but did not hookup. Eeked out a dozen Bluegill on ultralight for fun. I fished Blackwater Trading Post Sunday after Church for a little bit. Bluegill bite was good. I am guessing not many of our readers know Indiantown, but that area a favorite of mine. B.A.
  6. Be looking forward to a report. I will try to post a report, too. Crappie season for me is Jan - Apr. Spend my days at NW River or Indiantown Creek. After that, time to go back to the beach...surfing that is.
  7. Fishing strictly freshwater from now into June. First trip of 2020 today, looking for crappie. Likely bank fishing Back Bay or possibly N.C.. Just returned from Jax Florida....fishing slow but time well spent with grandkids. Patrick F. McManus says" If a man ain't fishing or hunting, he's just fritterin' his life away."
  8. Surf fishing is very slow this time of year.
  9. Hello, I am planning to take my father in law out fishing in Va Beach. Where is a good spot? I would like to put in on a few from shore. If heard good things about 1at Landing/Long Creek, any other spots on the ocean. Or bay? Thank you, Pat
  10. Hope everyone is enjoying a great holiday season! Local angling is now officially entering the winter season. We still have a few more days available in our sea bass and Bay striper season. Both close midnight December 31st. After that it’s all catch and release. This time of year, hearty anglers turn their attention wreck … Continue reading The post Winter Fishing Action In Virginia appeared first on Virginia Beach Fishing - VBSF.net. View the full article
  11. Large rockfish are moving out of bay tributaries and into the Bay. Look for them on the Eastern side of the Bay. Anglers are drifting or slow trolling eels near Plantation Light and along Cape Charles. Mann’s Stretch 25’s and tandem rigs are also effective. School-sized rockfish are available for anglers casting along the bridge … Continue reading The post It’s Striper Season! appeared first on Virginia Beach Fishing - VBSF.net. View the full article

  16. Speckled trout fishing has been super. Anglers are having success inside all the local inlets and on tidal rivers near the bay. Fishing on the Eastern Shore bay side has been especially good. The trout season should be peeking. There are plenty of school-sized striped bass available especially around bridges and docks with lights.

  20. With cooler weather settling in anglers are targeting speckled trout and they haven’t been disappointed. Look for specks inside Lynnhaven, Little Creek and Rudee inlets, in Virginia Eastern Shore creeks, around the Poquoson Flats, in the York, Nansemond and Elizabeth Rivers. Many fish are ranging 18 to 22-inches, with a few exceeding 24-inches.

  22. We had a Dad get his two daughters out for a Half Day Fishing Adventure with us today. It was a beautiful sunny day with light south winds. The goal was some fast action small fish for the Girls and a chance for something Big for Dad. The plan came together with the kids catching countless little fish like Seabass, porgies, pufferfish, oyster toads and such. The Big Red Drum showed for Dad and measured in at 47 inches for a Big Fish Virginia Citation Award. The Big Red was released and swam off strong to fight another day. Lots of fun.
