Outdoor Report - July 30, 2014

FISHING
Fishing has been hot, but pretty good. Look for saltwater fishing to improve as we get closer to fall.

Rappahannock River — Ken’s Tackle in Spotsylvania (540-898-1011) reported that catfish are hitting well on just about any bait now. With the cooler days we had last week and forecast for this week, the fishing should continue to be good. Smallmouth fishing and sunfish are hitting well on the upper river, as are catfish. There is reportedly some dock work being done at the City Dock in Fredericksburg now. Keep that in mind if you want to launch there.

Potomac River — Ken’s also reported good croaker action from Colonial Beach downstream. Donna at Ken’s mentioned some trout caught off Coles Point, as well.

Aqua Land in Southern Maryland is reporting plenty of croaker on squid near the bridge. Some spot are being caught, but not much info is being given on where or on what. They also had a few customers use Fishbites to catch rockfish. Catfish are hitting on everything and are numerous.
Hunting Run in Spotsylvania is now home for snakeheads. They are seeing at least one a week being caught. Go figure.

SALTWATER
Croaker continue to hit very consistently from our area all the way down to Virginia Beach. Cobia are moving northward in the Bay. Captain Ryan Rogers of the Midnight Sun (804-580-0245) had one boated within a few days of being back at Smith Point. The mack bite is still around Windmill Point, but not reported to Smith Point in force yet. The big red drum are now being caught on Capt. Ryan’s boat, and he is now back at Smith Point. He has some open dates for big red drum, Spanish macks, bluefish and cobia trips.

Flatfish are being very productive all over the Bay now. Some nice spadefish are reported. Puppy drum are numerous around Virginia Beach. Try Rudee Inlet.
