Put over at Lynnhaven on Friday and fished from 7am to noon. Caught 25 or so fish mostly in the 22-26 inch range. We did manage 5 keepers that ranged from 30 to 35 inches. We wanted one more keeper to limit out but the winds picked up so we had to go before it got sporty.

Looks like some happy fishermen (and women) and perfect sized eating fish!

We went Saturday and had similar success but stayed inside the bay at Cape Henry and kept 3 healthy 24-26" fish by 9 am. Spent the rest of the day under the 10,000 or so gannets out there playing catch and release on ultralight tackle throwing spoons.
We had the gannets chasing our spoons all the way to the boat and dozens of fish in the 18"-24" range all on 8 lb and 15 lb tackle.
Pretty rough out there by the afternoon, but certainly a good time.

Thanks for the comments this was my first run in the ocean. I am going to try it again tomorrow. I think the bigger fish are south of Rudee though. I had some friends go last Wed and they caught a 4 person limit in 2 hrs with the biggest being 44 inches. It was a blast watching my girlfriend struggle to reel in 5 or so fish.
