Fishing Report:  

Virginia and Chesapeake Bay Striper Fishing

The Rockfish were small (14" to 23") most were less than 18" min. However it was the most fun I've had fishing since last year at this time. W fished 8 days and caught close to 1000 fish, only 14 were keeper size (19" to 23").

We were using 4" Storm Lures Shad and Menhaden color also 4" glow in the dark on 1/4 to 1 oz. Lead head casting into birds in water from 2' to 30' on the drop offs. The weather was clear to partly cloudy waves 1' to 4', winds from all directions during the week. Water clear to 3' on incomming and out-going tide.

The large fish are running about 2 to 2 and 1/2 weeks behind because of warmer than normal temps. However the weekend of Thanksgiving should be great for the large rockfish. The Key to having this much fun is to find the birds, and get on the outside of them, with the wind and tide and cut the motor and drift with them. Sat. Nov. 12th my wife and I sat in them for 4 1/2 hours, our arms were about to fall off. And yes that was fun!


Did you folks catch the nice striper tip this angler mentioned?
When you find the birds you don't plow up through them hoping to get "RIGHT ON TOP" of the fish. Instead use a little patience and common sense - motor right up to the edge of the striper school. Position your boat just uptide of them and drift along with the school - hopefully the wind and tide will cooperate and you can float along with the rockfish school for many casts and everybody on the boat can get in on the action.
