    If there is one fish that that people think about when you mention Mid Atlantic and northeast fishing it’s striped bass. Striped bass have something that is appealing to everyone: they are available almost year round throughout the Chesapeake Bay and Mid Atlantic and they come in a variety of sizes, dink, medium, large and sometimes extra large. Each size has a different personality. Catch dinks and they are feisty, hook a big striper and you’ll feel him/her shake your line with authority.

    Interesting enough the migratory behaviors of coastal striped bass are more complex than those of most other anadromous fish, which spend most of their adult lives in the ocean but migrate up rivers and streams to spawn. Striped Bass ...

    Livelining continues to come on strong as anglers are using live spot to catch plenty of rockfish at traditional locations including the Hill, Poplar Island, and around the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. Anglers Fishing Center said chummers have scored with rockfish in 25 to 30 feet of water at Podickory and Hacketts. Croaker have been biting in 10 to 25 feet of water. White perch are schooled up in creeks and rivers and can be taken on spinners and other small lures and baits fished in the shallows.

    Captain Walleye Pete at Four Seasons Guide Service and Light Tackle Charter has been targeting rockfish as far up the bay as the Deale area, as he’s convinced that there have been very few keeper stripers south of Poplar Island. However, he has also fished the shallows around the Eastern Shore islands and the structure on the Middle Grounds out of Point Lookout, where his anglers have hooked blues to ...

    Rain in the summer time; we’ve heard that story before. However, despite the rain, anglers are getting out and catching striped bass, croakers and spot. While some anglers have been targeting spot to eat for themselves, it seems like the spot are being fed more to stripers.

    With minor effects from Arthur effecting Virginia waters the fishing has continued to be good for cobia, red drum, spanish mackerel, spadefish and founder.

    Cobia fishing remains excellent with both chumming and sight-fishing producing fish. The size of the fish has started to get smaller compared to earlier in the season. Ken Neiil says finding bigger cobia has been more of a challenge. Sight casters have been having success in and around Baltimore Channel to the 3rd island CBBT area. Chummers have been have success at Bluefish Rock, Latimer Shoals, and the Nine-Foot Shoal. If you decide to chum be warned that you are probably going to be feeding the sharks to find a cobia bite.

    I remember years back Dr. Ken Neill emailed me telling me this local fishing club, the Peninsula Salt Water Sport Fisherman’s Association, was putting on a Flounder Bowl (aka tournament) in the Virginia Beach area and if Tidal Fish would be willing to sponsor it. While other species seem to take the spotlight for tournaments I thought it was a heck of an idea and agreed. I think the first year they had a good turn out, not nothing large. Well that little tournament has turned into a huge event. I caught up with Ken to get the download on what happened.

    This year one hundred and six teams (106) competed in the Flounder Bowl on June 28 despite challenging conditions as they tried to capture a winning catch ...

    Cobia fishing remains strong this week in Virginia’s Chesapeake Bay and inshore waters with some bigger fish being weighed in; sight-casters and chummers are both having success. The bigger cobia have been pushing 80lbs. Tidal Fisher Sea-Quester posted a fishing report with an 84lber. You can see that one in the picture at the top of the fishing report this week; check out the full report for other pictures of this slob.

    I saw another nice cobia caught this week by mwillis98 and some really big slobs caught by Finao.

    The strong rockfish chumming bite continues. Johnny at Angler’s recommends chumming in 30 to 35 feet of water at Hacketts, Tollys, Podickory Point, Love Point and Gum Thickets. Larger rock have come from slightly deeper water; Johnny reported a dandy 37-incher chummed up in 38 to 40 feet of water at Hacketts. Trollers have been pulling 8- to 12-inch inlines and have had their best bites in 25 to 30 feet of water. Johnny said there’s a mayworm hatch underway and he recommends bottom bouncing with surgical tubes. White perch have been moving into the shallows where they can be caught on spinnerbaits. A few croaker have been reported, and Johnny expects spots to be available for purchase at Angler’s in about two weeks. ...

    Well, the results are in, and the 2014 Winner of the 31st Annual Championship on the Chesapeake is Gene Walker, who took home a whopping $63,000 with a 48 pound Rockfish. I’d say that is one fine day of fishing and worth tipping some spirits back at home port.
