Outdoors Report -July 24, 2013

Overview
Saltwater anglers continue to have a tough go of it. The middle bay area seems to be especially hard hit as of late with few reports of anything worth fishing for. The heat last week really slowed things down pretty much all over. Hopefully this week will be better.

Rappahannock River
Fishing in the river has been tough. Catfish and perch are the two fish that seem to be biting well. The upper river was stained or muddy for a long time and then finally cleared for the weekend but we did not hear from anglers fishing over the weekend up there. Sunday’s torrential rain may muddy it up again.

Potomac River
Aqua Land reports a smattering of everything biting but not any one thing. Anglers are bringing in mixed bags or stringers of puppy drum, spot, croaker, catfish and a few rockfish. Nothing seems to be really big or numerous. Anglers are having to pick along and scratch up dinner. Winter Harbor reported that the crabbing continues to be very slow but they had some nice white perch in their store when I stopped in late last week.

Motts Run
reported few fish being caught as of Sunday.

Saltwater
The big news on saltwater is that a tarpon was boated over off the Eastern Shore. The fish was huge too! Off the Outerbanks the tuna bite has been mostly good. Some bigeye tuna were hauled in up to 300 pounds. At the mouth of the bay the redfish are biting. Oceanfront fishing is good for trolling up macks. Spadefish are biting all over the structure around the CBBT and some around The Cell but most are five pounds or less. Sheepshead are reportedly biting. Croaker and spot in Lynnhaven are cooperating well.
