    Striped bass fishing has been very slow. Itís catch-and-release only in the Chesapeake, but very few anglers have been out. Striped bass season is open within three miles of Virginiaís Atlantic coast (in the EEZ), but there have been no reports of fish caught. Some schools of striped bass have been reported ...

    Itís been a cold, blustery, snowy beginning to the new year, significantly limiting fishing action. The good news is that January is history, the calendar has turned to February, and March, April and the spring rockfish season are coming!
    A good number of anglers turn their attention to freshwater fishing to help get them through the cold days of winter. As of Jan. 27, the Pocomoke River on Marylandís Eastern Shore was ...

    Hard to believe, but December 15, and the rockfish season in Marylandís portion of Chesapeake Bay, have come and gone already. And here comes Christmas! While it is difficult to detect from our current perspective, far out on the horizon is April, and the beginning of the 2015 fishing season. However, in the meantime, many anglers have put their boats in storage for the winter. Charter guides such as captains Walt at Light Tackle Charters, Walleye Pete at Four Seasons Light Tackle Charter, and Richie Gaines at Anglerís Connection Guide Service have moved south and are now fishing Virginiaís portion of the bay, and freshwater. Many of the first late-fall reports from the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel were disappointing; however, anglers have recently hooked up with a few more bigger stripers, primarily while fishing ...

    Saltwater fishing options are limited in and around Virginia waters right now. There are still a few reports of catch-and-release fishing for striped bass inside the bay, particularly near the deep-water area on the eastern side of the bay. Striped bass have been a no-show in the open coastal waters. Some have been encountered outside the 3 NM line by anglers searching for bluefin tuna but they do not seem to be thick out there either.

    Some monster bluefin tuna are being caught out of ...

    Passing cold fronts with gusty winds, especially on weekends, have significantly hampered fishing activity in recent weeks. Itís often been uncomfortable, or even impossible, to fish. On days when the weather has been decent enough for anglers to hit the water, they have often come up with nice rockfish catches.

    There have been striped bass on Susquehanna Flats. Most of them havenít been big, but the 14- to 18-inch fish provide exciting light-tackle casting action. A few larger rockfish, including nice fish to more than 30 inches, have been ...

    Itís been a very challenging fall, to say the least. An abundance of windy, wet and cold weather, including the passage of the recent noríeaster, has played havoc with many planned fishing trips, or wiped them out altogether. While rockfish are still available in a number of Chesapeake Bay locations, getting to them has been difficult, and darn near impossible, much of the time. Some of those anglers who have been available and ready to fish when the weather has been decent have managed to put together some ...

    Anyone who fishes for striped bass knows that any striper caught over a thirty pounds is a heck of a fish regardless of the tackle or technique you catch it. Striped bass anglers also know that anything over fifty pounds is a catch of a lifetime and most certainly anyone that catches one of these beasts deserves recogonition. This past week a fellow Tidal Fisher, Mark aka Bodywarior, managed to catch that fish of a lifetime. And so the story goesÖ

    Capt Mike was kind enough to report that theyíve been out eeling lately off OPL and HR. The bite has been real slow for us but Mark (Bodywarior) connected on a very nice rock Friday night at the ...

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.

    The strong rockfish chumming bite continues. Johnny at Anglerís 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 thereís 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 Anglerís in about two weeks. ...
