Fishing is slow due to few anglers but the actual action is pretty decent considering the weather.
Aqualand (301-259-0572) reported slow fishing activity by customers. But, they did hear of one angler that went downriver and filled the cooler. They think it was catfish and a few striped bass.
Crappie are hitting in deeper water near brushpiles.
Ken’s Tackle reported great action for crappie. Minnows are a hot commodity now.
Ponds—Fishing continues to be very good for small bass and slab crappie. Use minnows or bright jigs and work very slowly.
Captain Ryan Rogers (804-580-0245) reports continued great action for striped bass. He is trolling now and they are taking some beautiful fish! Give him a call to book a trip before the slots are full. He is still in the bay fishing for the bigger fish.
Deer action is still very slow. See related article. Watch for update next week. Duck action is very slow now too.
