Once again this year, the cold weather has waited until the bay rockfish season comes to an end before turning good and cold. Come Thursday the temperatures are not going to get out of the fifties during the day with lows in the thirties at night. The rockfish should start their migration by the first of next week. Hopefully, the stripers will hang around off of Virginia Beach for a week or two before continuing their migration off shore and down south. Last year, they just came out of the bay and kept right on going.
