Outdoors Report - May 22, 2013

Fishing continues to be good but did slow down some with the cooler weather. Hunting dropped off quite a bit.

Rappahannock River
Ken’s Tackle reported continued shad fishing near Falmouth and some good white perch action in town. Bass were hitting on crankbaits near hard structure. There are a lot of small catfish hitting in the river right now.

Potomac River
Aqua Land reported some catfish hitting on nightcrawlers and cutbait.
Winter Harbor had a few reports of croaker downriver.  They also heard that catfish were hitting.

Motts Run   
reported crappie, bluegill and some bass hitting well. Worms and jigs with small hooks are taking panfish. Don’t forget their Kids’ Fishing Day in June on the 8th. Registration is from 7:30-10:30. Plenty of prizes and food. They could really use some volunteers. Call 786-8989 to help out.

Saltwater
Striped bass are hitting well in the bay. Most of the fish are over 28 inches meaning you can only keep one of them. The lower Potomac River has given up some nice striper lately as well. Croaker are slowly coming in.
On the lower Rappahannock, the croaker are hitting but are on the small side.
Out in the main stem of the bay the black drum are hitting around the CBBT. No word yet on spades, or cobia. A cool spring has delayed our normal fishing schedule some.

Hunting
Turkey season ended Saturday and many birds were taken this year. I saw a huge gobbler in the field after the season ended so there evidently are some wise birds for seed stock.
Don’t forget the spring squirrel season coming in June 1st. Good luck finding .22 rounds though!

Events
May 24—Night Catfishing at Motts from 8:30 p.m. – 1 a.m. A great time and a clean place you can take your kids fishing at night.
June 1-15—Spring squirrel season. Six per day.
June 8—Kids Fishing Event at Motts. See above.
