Outdoors Report - August 7, 2013

Overview—Fishing has improved for saltwater anglers and is holding in a summer pattern for freshwater anglers.

Rappahannock River
Ken’s Tackle in Spotsylvania reported that anglers are buying lots of eels. A catfish tournament yielded a 32 pound fish. They also reported lots of small white perch are the City Dock and plenty of eating size catfish up there too.

Potomac River
Aqua Land reported that the croaker, perch and catfish are hitting. Squid works well on smaller croaker in the 9-12 inch range. Reportedly shrimp is taking larger fish. Spot are hitting bloodworms. Some nice white perch are hitting both baits. No word from Aqua Land on puppy drum.

Ruffins Pond gave up some snakeheads this past week according to Ken’s Tackle.

Lake Orange reports good bass angling on a Big Bite lure.

Lake Anna reports bass are deep on structure. Striper are smashing top water baits early in the morning before heading deep.

Saltwater
The middle bay area is seeing some decent spot action, some croaker action and some good striper action with live spot. The macks finally arrived. Capt. Ryan Rogers has put clients on them along with some really nice big red drum. Some anglers are finding the lower Potomac to be good for picking up a few keeper striper. RatLTraps and Berkley Mullet baits are working well. Find structure and bait and you will likely find fish.

The lower Rappahannock seems to be better for puppy drum than the lower Potomac. Spot and croaker anglers are doing better in the Potomac though. There seem to be plenty of small sharks hitting in the bay. I heard of a great white shark being caught just off Virginia Beach this past week. It apparently ate a small shark they had hooked.
