    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.

    Striped bass season opened up and and although there is still action offshore with billfish, dolphin and tuna, anglers inshore are gearing up for what we all hope is a good rockfish season.

    Capt Ken said that offshore there are still a few billfish being caught. There have been some big catches of dolphin along with some yellowfin and bigeye tuna around the ...

    Rockfish are in their annual fall pattern, providing exciting early-morning topwater action in the shallows and a strong jigging bite in deeper water. According to Captain Richie Gaines at Angler’s Connection Guide Service, “I’m catching good quality fish in the shallows on Stillwater Smack It Jr. poppers and then working hard bottom structure in six to 12 feet of water the rest of the day. Using 5-inch ...

    The fishing report this week is that there are not that many fishing reports. Don’t blame me or fellow fishermen for not reporting, blame Mother Nature who has served up windy conditions almost daily. The wind does just just make the ride uncomfortable, it also makes it hard to find the fish when you can even get out.

    Fellow Tidal Fisher HookedUp4 reported from the Northern Neck area: Anchored on a hump Saturday morning to ...

    Some of the most exciting news of the week comes from Lenny Rudow at Speckled trout he reported, in the middle of the bay! “Within sight of Thomas Point Light – seriously!” Lenny said he caught two and lost one at the boat, and the boat next to him caught a couple of specks as well. They were mixed in with numerous rockfish and bluefish. “They were in 8 feet of water or less, and striking pearl and white – ...

    Fishing is good in Virginia waters! I think this fishing report from MWills98 sums up some of the things happening in Virginia’s waters. “Hottest action I have ever seen, been trying for a day like this the past three years. Alex, Dave and I hit the oceanfront around 9 trolling for kings and on the lookout, wasn't long before we find a pod with dozens of cobia and sharks swarming the boat, hooked up a couple nice cobia but lines crossed and mine snaps off. Dave gets a 53'' release after some debate whether to let the first one go. Back on the fish, I catch a short, Alex catches a 49" keeper, Dave gets another one on a triple hook up. Another pod ...

    Fishing out of season, in places off limits, and taking more then is allowed by law is one of the many variables that effects all of us who would like to have fish for the future. When violations happen people always want to point fingers at the other group. Regardless of whether or not either recs or commercials would like to accept it, poaching hurts all of us and it happens in both the commercial and recreational fisheries. The only way to create deterrents is to have harsh penalties and for those penalties to actually get enforced. This week at the Virginia Marine Resources Commission meeting it ...

    We all know Virginia Beach is a fishing paradise and was nice to be recognized by Sport Fishing Magazine’s Top Ten List of Places to Catch a World Record. Thanks Sport Fish Mag for the kudos!

    The Virginia Beach Billfish Tournament is going on this week. A tournament maximum of 75 boats will be chasing billfish. Capt. Ken Neill said that the bite is good so there should be some impressive catches. In addition to some very good billfish action, there are good numbers of wahoo being caught and dolphin fishing is good. Down around the Point, off of Oregon Inlet, there are good numbers of yellowfin tuna and blackfin tuna. Wahoo fishing is very good out of Hatteras. The best of the billfish action has been from the Triple 0s on north, mostly between 40 and 100 fathoms.

    Pictured this week is Lauren Roberson with a nice cobia. She caught it ...

    Superfish, real name Peter T. Dressler, strolled into the Tidal Fish community around 1998. He was an interesting character who I had the opportunity to fish with several times, most all of the occasions where contrary to my belief I could out light tackle fish anyone at the time, I usually got my rear handed to me. He was embraced, misunderstood and mysterious over the years on Tidal Fish. Once you fished with him you started to understand the mysterious character who wrote some of the most interesting stories on Tidal Fish. Fiction or non-fiction it was always hard to tell, although I always thought there was no way you could make up some of the stories he told.

    One thing was absolutely certain, Superfish ...

    Captain Ken Neill said that cobia fishing is very good. Fish are being caught by sight-casting and by setting up on chum slicks. The Cobia Cup was this past weekend. Capt. Jorj Head won it with a 60.9-pound fish. Jorj also won the Hampton Creek Cobia Tournament earlier this summer. Jorj catches most of his cobia sight fishing but he won both of these tournaments by chumming. Capt. Head will be fishing the Chesapeake Bay Cobia Classic this coming weekend.
