Outdoor Report - September 3, 2014

Fishing has been a bit slow on the freshwater side for bass overall, but good for catfish. Saltwater fishing is good, except the wind is making it tough to get out.

Rappahannock River: The catfish action on the river continues to be very steady for eating-sized fish. Larger fish are hitting fresh cut bait, while smaller fish are hitting shrimp or even squid. Around Tappahannock, there reportedly is a good spot bite going on when using bloodworms. Fish early and late in the heat.

Potomac River: Spot are being caught in the river with more regularity now. Catfish, croaker and perch are hitting squid and shrimp, from Fairview Beach down to Colonial Beach. The croaker will not be around much longer. Rockfish are hitting sporadically in our area. Fish the lumps and shoals at low light, or jig deeper waters with bucktails or spoons during the day.
Inland waters: Pond action continues to be a bit slow. Perhaps this is due to the heat. For bass, fish early and late with topwater near lily pads. Once we get through this hot spell, the fishing should pick back up. Lake Louisa reportedly gave up a nice walleye and lots of crappie.

Saltwater: The flounder bite was still good near the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel. Cobia anglers are having a great season chumming near buoys, the tunnel, shoals and other structures.

Redfish are in the Bay in force now. Look for large marks on your fish finder, then live-line spot to them, or troll huge Drone spoons past them.

White perch are hitting very well on small pieces of bait in shallow shoals and tidal creeks.

Crabbing reportedly is better than it was last year at this time. Use shrimp or bunker for bait.

Captain Ryan Rogers of The Midnight Sun (804-580-0245) put his clients on lots of bluefish, redfish, Spanish mackerel and croaker with a few spot mixed in.
