Outdoors Report - October 17, 2012

 

Fishing continues to be quite good. Hunting has been slow for deer from reports we have heard. There are a LOT of acorns in the woods and deer don’t have to move much to feed. 

Potomac River

Aqualand (301-259-0572) did not have a lot of interaction with anglers this week but they did hear that croaker were still around and hitting squid. Puppy drum were also hitting. Catfish of great size were biting well and perch were hitting minnows and small baits. Ken’s Tackle (898-1011) reported that crappie were still taking jigs and grubs in Aquia Creek. Minnows are also working well. Colonial Beach was a good spot for puppy drum, and stripers if you used spot or squid for bait. 

Rappahannock River

Ken’s reported eels are the hot bait for big catfish. One catfish weighed in was 44 pounds. Little Falls is reportedly a good spot if you can stand the smell and the idea of fishing around a sewage treatment plant. Crappie are hitting minnows very well. 

Bass are hitting a little better this week. Fish the outgoing tide. Spinnerbaits were favored. 

Inland

Motts Run Reservoir (540-786-8989) reported stringers of catfish on chicken liver. Some nice perch are hitting and the piers are heating up with activity as the fish move closer to shore. 

Lake Anna—reports show striper moving uplake chasing herring. Bass are on drop offs and in the creeks now. Crappie are starting to hit around the bridges on deep docks. 

Saltwater

Captain Ryan Rogers (804-580-0245) reports good bluefishing and the rockfish season is pretty good. Several trips have caught a good mix of fish. 

Specks are still hitting further south in marshes and inlets near Virginia Beach. Flounder were scarcer this past week. Croaker and spot are also hitting further south of us near Virginia Beach. Get in on the action before it is gone for the year!
