Outdoor Report - June 18, 2014

Fishing is quite good, other than a small lull in some catfishing.

HUNTING
Squirrel season is in for a few more days. Look for squirrels near fruit trees, raspberry patches and field edges.

FISHING
Rappahannock River — Ken’s Tackle in Spotsylvania reported good bass action with crankbaits on the river. With the river muddy since last week, it has been tough though. Catfish are biting cutbait the best, but chicken liver or beef liver is also working.

Potomac River — Aqua Land in Southern Maryland reports that anglers are catching some rockfish, perch and catfish on nightcrawlers. Aqua Land also has reports of some croaker around the bridge on bloodworms. Try Fishbites and shrimp, too.

Ponds — The topwater bite is on, early and late, and the plastic worm and summer pattern has taken over. Fish slower and deeper with the heat. Remember to drink plenty of water.

Motts Run Reservoir reported some nice catfish action on nightcrawlers. Small bass are also hitting well on a variety of baits.

Saltwater — Croaker are hitting very consistently downriver from us on both the Potomac and Rappahannock. Squid and shrimp tend to be the best.

Captain Ryan Rogers of the Midnight Sun (804-580-0245) now is at Virginia Beach. Some dates are open for inshore spadefish (which are biting now), bluefish, macks and others. Offshore trips for tune and amberjack and dolphin are available, as well.

The lower Chesapeake Bay has been good for cobia, flounder and drum. A few bluefish are in the Bay, as well as spot, croaker and puppy drum.
