Outdoors Report -July 17, 2013


Overview—It has been a tough year for saltwater anglers. Some days fish are biting well and others the fishing is slow. Weather is being blamed. Freshwater angling has been better but high rivers are complicating matters. Catfish are the one consistent bite lately.

 

Rappahannock River
Ken’s Tackle reports that catfish are biting well on the river. There are tons of white perch around Port Royal but most are small. Look in the creek mouths and in the creeks if you want fresh bait. No word on the bass angling. Stained and muddy water make things tough.

Potomac River
Aqua Land reported great catfish action on everything you can throw to them. A few spot are being caught and the croaker action has slowed some. Puppy drum are still hitting.

Winter Harbor reported that the crabbing is very slow. Ken’s reported that stripers are being caught in Maryland and in the river. Some nice stripers are being caught on bucktails and jigs. Sassy shads are working too.

 Motts Run reported some perch caught around the reservoir and crappie caught on nightcrawlers and jigs off the piers. Some nice catfish stringers are being seen.  

Saltwater
The tuna bite has been very hit or miss. Windy conditions are making it downright tough for anglers offshore. Some dolphin have been caught. Spades went to jellyfish so that got tougher too. Seabass are biting on wrecks. Flounder action ebbs and flows. The influx of freshwater and dirty conditions has been to blame. Cobia are still putting on a good bite in the normal haunts. Speck action has been slow but for those that find it they are happy to see nice fish. Catch and release striper in Virginia waters has been good south of us. Bluefish have been a very spotty and poor showing so far this year. Plenty of baitfish in the lower rivers though.
