Outdoors Report - March, 21, 2012

We start our weekly fishing report this year with a BANG! Fishing is quite good all around although the weather sure is fickle.

Rappahannock River

Overview: Fishing is quite good but still can be sporadic. White perch have been hit or miss. When they are on they are HOT though but when they are OFF you need to

Fishing season is heating UP

Last week’s column about curing the itch started an itch in me while writing it. Temperatures that flirt with the 70s and 80s always get me going.

The problem with spring is that there are too many chores outside that interfere with fishing! Regardless, one must have their priorities in order and take some time to wet a line and cook up some fresh fish.

There usually is talk about fish spawning early when we get a warm string of days. I must be gathering some years under my belt

Curing “The Itch”

Spring never seems to come fast enough, particularly if you like to fish and you are a school-aged boy. The chill of winter had not even really left and yet there we were, striding at a brisk pace down an old logging road not far from our homes with fishing rods in our hands.

The calendar said March, but in our minds it should have been April at the least. It did not matter what the calendar said; we were going fishing. The temperatures had flirted with 70 degrees a half dozen times and the sun lingered in the western sky over an hour longer than it did at the end of deer season, so we had to have some relief. There was but one way to get that relief, and we were on the way to get it.

It seemed that we were not the only ones trying to hurry spring along on that fine March day. The toads and frogs had set

Outdoors Report - February 29, 2012

 

Outdoorsmen and women should voice their opinion on outdoor issues
VDGIF has an open comment period on several boating, fishing and non-game regulations now, but the comment period will close March 6th. Take the time to let your voice be heard. Many of the fishing issues do not affect our local area but some of the boating and non-game issues do. Check it out at http://www.dgif.virginia.gov/regulations/issues-2012/recommendations.asp

Remember the Boater Education Requirement
The law that began in 2007 to have everyone operating a watercraft take a boater safety course is being phased in. Now is a good time to take the course. Anyone operating a boat or PWC MUST have the course by the required time. Here is the phase in schedule:

Cabin Fever this Winter? Go Fish!

As I type this up we are looking at the possibility of snow accumulating on Sunday. (Editor’s note: yes, we did get some snow!) It is hard to believe that we made it through February with little to no snow piling up. Personally I am thrilled that I did not have to plow snow, or dig out. However, I am ready for temperatures in the 70’s and my eye has wandered over to the fishing rods a few times the last few weeks.

After sitting down to type up this column my mind began wandering back to other winters when I got cabin fever and just

Can VA Beach’s Back Bay be restored to its grandeur?

Anglers literally came from all over the world to fish in the unique freshwater impoundment located within sight of the pounding surf of the Atlantic Ocean.

Over thirty years ago Back Bay, located south of Virginia Beach, was known for a world-class largemouth bass fishery. Anglers literally came from all over the world to fish in the unique freshwater impoundment, located within sight of the pounding surf of the Atlantic Ocean. Anglers from our area regularly made the trip down there to fish in what was known as a huge
