Outdoors Report - May 14, 2014

Fishing continues to be quite good, particularly in ponds.

HUNTING
Turkey hunting slowed down for many. There are only a few days left. The good news is that there are plenty of hens, and hopefully plenty of nests being sat upon right now!

FISHING
Rappahannock River — Donna at Ken’s Tackle reported that people were still catching some shad, but the run is fading fast. Some white perch were caught earlier in the week, and plenty of bass and catfish were hitting minnows. Small striper are in the river now, but must be tossed back.
Potomac River — Aqua Land in Southern Maryland reports that anglers are catching lots of catfish in the river and some white perch. No croaker are being reported yet. Some striped bass were caught but are farther downriver.
Ponds — Crappie and bass are still spawning in some ponds; minnows are key for them. Ken’s Field and Stream in Oak Grove reported good bass angling, including a citation bass they checked in.
Motts Run Reservoir —  reported good largemouth bass fishing around the reservoir. Some great crappie action is being had in the structure, as well. A citation bass was checked in last week, too. Minnows and plastic worms were the best baits.
Saltwater — Puppy drum action is very good in the lower Bay. Some croaker are being caught, and nice striped bass are being trolled up, as well.
Captain Ryan Rogers of the Midnight Sun (804-580-0245) reported good rockfish action last week. Some fish up to 40 in. were caught, and some pretty fish were hauled in. However, the heat will likely drive the larger ones out.

EVENTS
May 5-17 — Turkey season. Half hour before sunrise until sunset.
June 6-7-8 — Free fishing days throughout Virginia, except designated trout-stocked waters.
