Few people are fishing but those that are and know what they are doing are doing very well.
Aqualand (301-259-0572) reported good catfish action. One of their customers is going out and jigging up some beautiful striped bass measuring 24 inches in length.
Bright jigs and white grubs are taking big bream and crappie now.
Chris Craft at Lake Anna has been finding some nice crappie in deeper water on structure and using jigs to catch them. He is also taking clients out for striped bass too. Nice catches are to be had.
Captain Ryan Rogers (804-580-0245) reports continued great action for striped bass. He is trolling now and they are taking some beautiful fish! The fish range in size from 24 inches up to 40+ inches. 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. Pern’s had four deer checked in all week. Two does, a button buck and a nice eight-point buck. Duck hunting is reportedly really slow as well. However, rabbit hunting and squirrel hunting are VERY good. Fox hunting is also reportedly quite good and some guys are also taking some coyotes. Those of us that have small stock are grateful that you are taking the predators and balancing things out some.
