Outdoors Report - July 18, 2012

 

Fishing is quite good no matter where you go. During the hottest part of the day take a break and then hit it again when things cool a bit.

Potomac River

Ken’s Tackle reported that striped bass and white perch are hitting near Colonial Beach. Croaker are also hitting well on squid and Fishbites. 

Aqualand also reported white perch hitting very well. The croaker are hitting on shrimp for their customers. Catfish are hitting on 

everything. 

Lil Falls said that their customers were taking croaker down from Fairview on peelers and rockfish were liking crabmeat. Bass and snakeheads are still hitting plastics and buzzbaits.  

There are plenty of puppy drum  (juvenile redfish) in the river now. They are silver in color, long like a croaker and have a black spot(s) on their tail. Do not keep them unless they are of legal size (18”). They are fun to catch though. Enjoy their presence in the area and let’s hope this strong run of the little ones means great redfish angling to come. 

Rollins Seafood reported that they were seeing plenty of nice perch and decent sized croaker. The croaker appear to be interested in shrimp. Catfish are biting bunker now. 

Rappahannock River

Catfish are hitting almost anything on the river now. The smaller, pan sized fish were liking worms just as well as anything else. However, larger fish were taking shrimp, cut bait and minnows. 

Smallmouth are in the upper river in deep holes according to Miss Donna at Ken’s. 

Lake Orange reports crappie hitting well on minnows. 

Bass are hitting plastics and topwater.

Lake Anna anglers are finding good topwater action in the AM and PM. Jigging spoons and using swimbaits will take striper and bass now too. 

Saltwater

Anglers are taking small striper in the bay. Some bluefish are showing up and redfish are still around. However, croaker, flounder and spot are stealing the show. Cobia down in the lower bay are really taking off and some macks are starting to show up around Deltaville. Spades are in the bay now and available near structure.
