This afternoon I had Steve Lorcher and his brothers aboard for a half day. The plan was to pull out of rudee sometime after noon and fish for stripers until about dark. We pulled out shortly after twelve and ran up to cape henry. Got the spread set up just outside the area where I wanted to fish and as soon as I got into the area where I wanted to fish, (along the channel edge inside of the junction buoy), it was on. Raining 20# rockfish. All you wanted. We caught them 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 at a time. We made a quick limit and released a **** load too. Almost all fish were 32'' to 40'' and after about 45 crazy minutes, these guys were tired of cranking and ready to go home. We even cut the spread back to three rods so they could get some rest and we started catching them on them two at a time on our tandem rigs. Southwest winds about ten miles an hour made for a pretty ride home along the Virginia Beach resort strip. water temp was 48. They bit everything. Hot color was anything moving in the water. Good fishing.

I still have plenty of charter dates available from $550 for a half day of trolling and $700 for eeling. Call me at 757-749-6008 to get set up or check my site at Virginia Beach Fishing, Virginia Beach Deep Sea Fishing, Virginia Sport Fishing. Thanks, Jake

Rockfish Cape Henry

Jake,

We picked our limit by lunch time. Took us a lot longer than it took you.

Sounds like the bite was on in the afternoon. Nice Job!

Tight Lines & Happy Holidays

A little help Capt Jake:

In the bay or on the ocean side? I hear a little action going on just inside the line (bay) as well.

Thanks

It was like that for us this morning until the tide slacked, we had fish on before we could get all the rods out, nice when it works out that way
