Outdoors Report - May 29, 2013

Fishing was good until the cool weather hit. It was improving at the tail end of the weekend though. The wind kept anglers at bay much of the weekend.

Rappahannock River
Catfish were hitting cutbait. The worm bite dropped off. There are gar in the river, some striper still lurking around (no take permitted in our area) and the bass were coming on. White perch are still hitting. Try small pieces of shrimp. Ken’t Tackle reported that a crappie weighing over two pounds was caught on the river. Minnows was the bait used. 

Potomac River
Aqua Land reported some catfish hitting on nightcrawlers and cutbait. They also had perch caught in their area.
Winter Harbor had a few reports of perch and croaker hitting.
Snakeheads were very active in tribs until the cooler weather hit. Some are quite big. They are very tasty. If you get a chance try one!
Motts Run reported some great bream fishing. One citation bream was caught. This is the time of year to get the biggest bream of the season as they spawn. Crickets and red wigglers are the ticket. Some small bass were caught and a mixed stringer of 25 panfish were caught at the reservoir too. Don’t forget their Kids’ Fishing Day in June 8. Registration is from 7:30-10:30 a.m. Plenty of prizes and food. They could really use some volunteers. Call 786-8989 to help out.

Saltwater
The wind killed angler participation this past week. Cool temps did not help either. However, striper are in and the schoolie action in Maryland and Virginia waters is good. Some monster bluefish were caught in the Virginia Beach area. Before the rain and wind some nice flounder and redfish were caught down that way too. No word on spadefish or cobia yet.
Ken’s Tackle reported good croaker action further downriver on the Rappahannock near Tappahannock. The fish were small though. Squid and bloodworms were the bait of choice. Also downriver on the Rapp were striper.

Hunting
Squirrel season opens Saturday. Enjoy finding some squirrels and take a new hunter with you! Look for field edges and berry thickets to be the best spots.

Events
June 1-15-Spring squirrel season. Six per day.
June 8—Kids Fishing Event at Motts.
