    I wish I had some better news to report about the tidal water fishing scene, but between windy weather keeping boats at the dock and when anglers do get a weather window the poor fishing for striped bass and tuna has anglers discouraged so just not too much is going on, but a few reports came in if you are interested in running a bit offshore and ...

    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 ...

    With the New Year comes the closing of the striped bass season inside the bay, but that does not mean you can not catch and release and also get out on the coast and chase down some fins.

    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 ...
