Outdoors Report - September 4, 2013

Overview—Fishing continues to be quite good with a variety of fish to be had in both fresh and saltwater. Hunting season opened for goose and dove on Monday.

Rappahannock River
Perns is selling worms and bloodworms on a regular basis, but customers are tight lipped about what they are catching. Catfish continue to hit well on the river and cutbait seems to be the best bait. Catch small perch or bream in the shallows and then move up the food chain. The warmer weather slowed the transition we were making to fall patterns.

Potomac River
Aqua Land reported a good mix of fish hitting. They saw croaker hitting squid, small blues on squid and small spoons, catfish on anything. White perch are also out in force and are feeding below the small bluefish.

Winter Harbor reported croaker, perch and spot on bloodworms on the river hitting the same baits. Catfish are hitting all baits and a few nice croaker are being caught. Snakeheads are reportedly hitting very well on the middle to lower tribs of the river. Crabbers in that area are struggling to get many crabs.

Inland waters
Motts Run reported that catfish are hitting well. They had a channel cat, flathead and even a blue catfish caught this week. The blue was five pounds. There are not supposed to be any blue cats in the reservoir but apparently one was in there. That will be interesting to see how it changes the dynamics of the fishery.
A few crappie were hitting on minnows. Last, the night catfishing event on Sept. 20 will be the last one for the season.

Saltwater
Capt. Ryan Rogers has had bluefish, speckled trout, Spanish mackerel and HUGE red drum come over the rails of his boat lately. NOW is the time to get a charter trip together. September is usually the best time of the year to get a very nice variety of fish on the bay. Give Ryan a call to set up a charter. 804-580-0245.
