Outdoors Report - September 18, 2013

Overview—Fishing continues to be very good but local saltwater action is appearing to have peaked and is waning. Get out now before they are gone!

Rappahannock River
We heard that bass fishing on the river has been VERY good this week. Cranks and plastics have worked equally well on the incoming and the tail end of the outgoing tide. The fall air has spurred the feed, it appears. Catfish are active and a few crappie and nice bream are being caught near downed trees. Find your way back into tidal creeks, and enjoy the cooler air and good fishing.

Potomac River
AquaLand reported catfish hitting the best with some real bruisers being caught on cut bait. The croaker and puppy drum were not that active this week, but a few small blues were taken and some nice perch were caught, too.

Winter Harbor reported some smaller bluefish and large catfish hitting, but the saltwater species appear to be headed out.

Inland waters
Motts Run –The fishing has been good for catfish on chicken livers and nightcrawlers. Some nice yellow perch and shellcracker were also caught. Last, the night catfishing event on September 20th will be the last one for the season.

VDGIF confirmed with me that they will be putting shad in the Hunting Run Reservoir.

Saltwater
Cobia are staging at the mouth of the Bay. Spanish are being caught on the oceanfront and some nice spot and puppy drum are caught in the Virginia Beach area, too. Red drum are prowling the lower Bay, and flounder fishing has been excellent in the usual haunts in the lower Bay.
