Overview—Fishing continues to be very good all over. Both salt and freshwater anglers are really having a good time.
Ken’s Tackle reported nice bass being caught on plastics on the river. Some up to four pounds were brought in. Smallmouth bass were hitting well last week upriver. Catfish are biting as they normally are. Use cutbait for them.
Aqua Land reported catfish hitting the best but good catches of puppy drum and croaker on squid. Some nice spot were caught and bluefish are hitting well. Smaller perch are taking lures and bait below the bluefish.
Ken’s Tackle in Spotsylvania reported croaker and spot on bloodworms and squid. Down at Coles Point the striper are hitting well. Some speckled trout were hitting baits, too. Bucktails are the lure of choice for striper on the river. Fish irregularities in the river bottom for them.
Winter Harbor reported spot hitting bloodworms and squid. Catfish are hitting all baits and plenty of puppy drum being caught.
Motts Run –The fishing was slow at the reservoir due to the lack of participation. Some smallmouth and crappie were landed though. Last, the night catfishing event on September 20th will be the last one for the season.
AP Hill ponds were hot for crappie this past week. One fish was 2.5 pounds.
Curtis Lake anglers were taking lots of bass this past week using 9-12 inch worms.
Hunting Run reportedly now has snakeheads in it. An angler is said to have caught 5 of them. VDGIF is reportedly looking at introducing gizzard shad into the reservoir.
More snakeheads were caught at Ruffins Pond off Rt. 17.
Capt. Ryan Rogers continues to put clients on a really nice class of bluefish and some pretty Spanish. Some trips they catch cobia, speckled trout, flounder, croaker and spot. It won’t take many more cool nights to start those great-tasting fish south. Get ‘em while you can!
