    Ken Neill was kind enough to put together a good synopsis of what is going on with Striped Bass in Virginia for 2015 and beyond. Worth the read if you are interested in how the whole striped bass situation in Virginia is going to play out. The summary is at the end of the fishing reports.

    Striped bass action has been pretty good on school-sized fish. Most of the fish are being caught at the area’s crossings like the CBBT, JRB, Coleman Bridge, HRBT, MMMT and at any other structure with lights on it at night. More fish are being caught in open water and there has been some bird action. There have been a few 40-plus pound fish caught at the CBBT at night and on the bayside of the Eastern Shore during the day, primarily on live eels. This fishery should get better each day. There is still a good bite up the bay in Maryland waters and up the coast off of New Jersey. Those fish ...

    Before the bone-chilling cold moved it, good numbers of nice rockfish were being caught in the lower Susquehanna River and on Susquehanna Flats. At Port Deposit on the Susquehanna River, anglers reported catching real nice rockfish to 28 inches while casting Alabama rigs, Storm shads, leadheads dressed with Bass Kandy Delights (BKDs) and Bass Assassins, and Rat-L-Traps and other crankbaits. Those same lures have also taken smaller 14- to 20-inch rockfish in the shallows around Battery Island, along the channel edges on Susquehanna Flats, and just off Sandy Point at the southern end of the flats. In addition, in the shallows around ...

    Passing cold fronts with gusty winds, especially on weekends, have significantly hampered fishing activity in recent weeks. It’s 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 haven’t 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 ...

    Fishing eels around the pilings of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge is often productive on nice stripers this time of year. Trollers have reported catching stripers on bucktails, spoons and plastics. Casting soft plastics on leadhead jigs, and swimming plugs, in the shallows has triggered exciting rockfish strikes, especially in the early-morning and evening hours. Anglers have also had a blast searching out clouds of diving sea gulls and then casting to rampaging rockfish as they chase baitfish to the surface.

    Working the shallows, and casting into the chaos of breaking fish and diving birds, have both produced ...

    Rain and wind washed out most fishing activity this past weekend. Plus, many outdoorsmen are now spending more time in the woods and a little less time on the water. However, there are still plenty of fish around. Rockfish continue to be caught by chummers and trollers. Light-tackle anglers report strong numbers of stripers in the shallows around islands and river mouths. Striped bass fishing should get even better in the weeks ahead when anglers can look forward to hooking up with big fall fish.
