  4. 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.

  6. We had a Group of friends get out with us today. It was a beautiful sunny day with light south winds. We caught 7 Flounder from 12 to 17 inches some Croaker a couple Puffer fish, over 50 little Seabass and of coarse Oyster Toads. The Big Rod Bender for the Day was a Big Bull Red Drum that measured in at 52 inches for a Big Fish Virginia Citation Award and he gave this Big Man a workout. The Big Red was released and swam off strong to fight another day. Lots of fun.

  8. We had our hard-core fishing couple with us again this morning. The weather including Hurricane Dorian had been keeping us from fishing, but when it finally looked fishable, we had to go. It was a Beautiful Sunny Day. The Flounder were finicky, and the bite was lite resulting in a few lost Flounder and a short. We hooked up on 5 Big Bull Red Drum and landed 2 of them that were over 40” but not quite big enough for the Big Fish Virginia Citation Award ( 46 inches for Red Drum ). The Big Red may not have won a trophy but it sure gave him a fight to remember and wore him out for a bit. The Big Reds were released and swam off strong to fight another day. The other Big Reds fought much harder and probably bigger, but after a couple long runs it pulled the hook and got away. We also caught lots of the other stuff like Oyster Toads, Seabass and such. Lots of fun.

  10. We had a Couple Fun Couples get out fishing with us this morning. The Spadefish bite has been Awesome with Boat Limits almost every trip in August. It was a beautiful day on the Chesapeake Bay with light SW winds. We messed around with those Crazy Fighting Spadefish and ended up putting 24 in the cooler and Caught and Released a few more just for the Fun of it. We also caught the normal other stuff like Black Seabass, Bluefish, Oyster Toads and such. Lots of Fun and back to the dock for lunch.
  11. Fall is a time of transition. Our summertime visitors leave (both fish and people). The waters are less crowded and fish are very active. It is my favorite time of the year to fish. Offshore, September is the time we have epic marlin catches. Boats come in with riggers full of release flags. It just … Continue reading The post Waters Less Crowded, Fish Very Active appeared first on Virginia Beach Fishing - VBSF.net. View the full article
  12. excellent bait for many fish. huge stripers and many other fish will hit them on your hook. I hunt them on chik's beach or fort story. oceanview is not a good catch area for them because I dunno why but not caught many in oceanview. These crabs are hard to find in baitshops.

  21. Sunday we had a Beautiful Day, Boat was Warmed up and Ready to go and our charter never showed up, so I took my First Mate out fishing. The fish were snapping everywhere we went today. First we messed around with the Spadefish and caught our limit and released 6 more in 15 minutes, so then we went and caught a limit of Flounder up to 23 inches. My First Mate caught the biggest, but the Captain caught the most, call it a tie. Monday was another beautiful day so we decided to do it again. Just like Sunday we started with the Spadefish and caught our limit and released 5 more in 15 minutes, then we went for some Flounder caught mostly shorts this morning but we quickly put 2 in the box then decided to do something different today. We trolled for Spanish and Blues catching our limit of Bluefish and some really nice Spanish Mackerel to add to the catch of the day. We also caught the normal other stuff like little Seabass, Oyster Toads and such and got back to the dock in short order. Lots of Fun, it was good to have a day for the Key Dreams Team to play.
  22. Some nice flounder limits were had this week. Captain Craig Paige, Paige II Charters landed some nice ones on his last trip. Jigged buck tails are producing, but drifting with live bait seems to entice larger fish. The hot spots are along the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel and near the Cell. There are keepers in … Continue reading The post Good Late Summer Fishing Action In Virginia appeared first on Virginia Beach Fishing - VBSF.net. View the full article
