Outdoors Report - October 23, 2013

Overview
Anglers were few this week with all the rain that messed up the river. However, some anglers really made out well.

Potomac River
Ken’s Tackle in Spotsylvania reported 27 yellow perch citations, yes, I said 27 yellow perch citations all by the same man, supposedly. Unreal. I will tell you that they were from a trib of the Potomac. Wow, he ate well that night!
Winter Harbor reported that some nice puppy drum were caught just downriver near shore. Rockfish and perch were hitting squid and bloodworms.
Aqua Land reported white perch and catfish hitting squid and bloodworms, too.

Inland waters
Motts Run –Will be closing October 31. Several anglers fished Saturday and caught a stringer of nice bluegill, a stringer of really nice catfish and some white perch. All fish were caught from the piers.

Lake Anna has been good for drop shotting big bass. Striper are hitting all over at first light under the birds.
Hunting Run now has snakeheads being caught in it. Someone thinks it is funny to release these fish in our local waters, I suppose. But, non-native fish are not a good idea. If you catch one, eat it. They do taste good.
Crappie are hitting well in ponds.

Saltwater
Captain Ryan Rogers (804-580-0245) reported good bluefish action and some good rockfishing. It is amazing how many bluefish are still around. The rockfish are looking good, too.

The York River has been giving up nice spot, puppy drum and some bluefish, too.

Hunting
The deer activity has picked up a little bit. Turkey appear to be plentiful.  Pern’s had a few deer checked-in. Although you can easily check your deer online or by phone, take the time to support our local check stations.

They do this service for free. You might run into other hunters there and pick up a few valuable tidbits about hunting while there.
