Despite the heavy rain and the swollen rivers, fishing was good in some places last week.
Before the rain the catfish were biting well.
Aqua Land reported catfish hitting on squid, nightcrawlers and cutbait.
Winter Harbor had reports of anglers catching a few croaker downriver. Catfish are really hitting well too.
Ken’s Tackle in Spotsylvania reported that customers are catching croaker around Colonial Beach on squid and Fishbites. Ken’s also reported incredible snakehead action on the river and mainly the tributaries that are weedless using frog and mouse lures.
Motts Run reported a great catfish bite. The catfish were after chicken liver. The bass and bream bite slowed down but plenty of smaller fish were caught.
From down the bay we hear that cobia are still making their way into the area. Speckled trout are hit or miss and flounder are hit or miss. Still no word on spades. Big blues that were hitting in the Inlet near Virginia Beach are making their way out. Some smaller croaker are hitting in the lower York. The tuna bite was red hot before the storm. No word on how the bite is now.
Squirrel season is out. Groundhogs are everywhere. The young ones are really good to eat. Give them a try.
