Outdoors Report - October 30, 2013

Overview
Angler numbers are dropping, but that is a shame because fishing is incredible right now. Too bad hunting season is in!

Rappahannock River
Reports suggest that bass angling is phenomenal for the few anglers we heard about on the river. Hopyard down to Hicks and then up to the Little Falls area seems to be the best. Fish drop offs near structure. Work it slow.
Catfish angling was reportedly decent, as well.

Potomac River
Winter Harbor reported that fishing for catfish, rockfish and puppy drum continues to be quite good. Lures are working for rockfish and puppy drum, but squid is also taking a lot of the fish, too. Some anglers are still using bloodworms. Smaller fish are eating up bait, though, and frustrating anglers. Many little perch are in the area.
Aqua Land reported white perch and catfish hitting squid and bloodworms, too.

Inland waters
Motts Run –Will be closing Oct. 31. Look for news of the Ice Breaker Contests in the late winter.
Ponds and small lakes are dynamite for bass and crappie right now. Try slowing trolling jigs under a float for crappie. Minnows or jerkbaits are working for bass. Cranks such as RatL Traps are also working well.

Saltwater
Captain Ryan Rogers (804-580-0245) reported great bluefish action and some very good rockfishing. It is amazing how many bluefish are still around. The rockfish are increasing in size each week.
Down at Virginia Beach, the puppy drum action is hot. Croaker are still hitting well, and the bull reds are in the surf along the oceanfront. Look for these fish to slowly work their way out of here. The Spanish macks are still off the oceanfront, too!

Hunting:
Muzzleloader season starts this coming weekend, and the deer will be starting to get into the pre-rut state very soon. Squirrel hunting has been tougher lately due to lack of acorns. Find a tree with nuts, and you will find squirrels.
