Saltwater - The big news is the pending state record Bluefin Tuna caught over the weekend by Jake Hiles. The fish weighed 708 lbs! There are other big Bluefins being caught this week also. Blackfin Tuna are being caught as well. The February Seabass season has been going well for those putting in the time.Tautog are available also, but reports are low this week. Along the surf at Hatteras, there has been some small Black Drum caught along with some keeper Puppy Drum. A lot of Speckled Trout baits are being bought from Green Top, but not many reports are being mentioned... With this mild winter, surely someone is wrecking these fish. Things are shaping up to be quite a year for the Specks.

Freshwater - Big Bass are the big story this week. Bill Deeds of Orange, weighed in a monster bag of Bass during the Presidents Day tournament on Lake Anna on Monday. His total 5 fish limit weighed 27.30 lbs! 16 lbs was the second place weight. There was a wide variety of baits being reported as successful. Swimbaits, jerkbaits, shaky heads, and jigs were mentioned most. At Smith Mountain Lake, there were 7 bags over 20 lbs reportedly brought to the scales on Sunday. 21 lbs was the winning weight. Much of the same baits were mentioned. Good catches of Crappie are occurring in many places right now. Kerr, Anna, Smith, and local ponds. The new moon will be upon us on the 22nd, so look for fishing to improve even more during this favorable moon phase..... Continue>>>>>

Weekly Fishing Report:

Steve Chaconas National Bass Guide Service

Early Spring? Maybe
It’s been a mild and fairly dry winter. This week will be the same. While slow speeds are still key, depth of fish is starting to change a bit. The same baits and presentations are still in play.
Water is warming to 45 degrees and might warm up a few degrees by the weekend, a big deal! Early in the week it will be in the mid 50 with a good chance of rain on Tuesday and Wednesday. Cooling into the mid 40s until the weekend when temperatures will only be in the upper 30s. 
In the clearest water, try jerkbaits that will suspend down to 8 feet. Let them sit on 10 pound test Gamma Edge fluorocarbon line. Wind them to their depth along drops and then start with soft taps and long pauses. Let the bait sit and watch line. A medium action rod will allow fish to take the bait and won’t pull hooks out of slightly hooked fish.

FISHING REPORT By Charlie Taylor



Fishing Report - February 21, 2020


OVERVIEW - With the recent advent of warm weather, water temperatures are rising and bass and crappie are on the feed. Bass may generally be found near their normal spawning grounds, holding in adjacent deeper water and coming up on the flats to feed once the sun warms the water. Crappie are schooled up in 4-6 feet of water adjacent to cover.

POTOMAC RIVER - D.C.- Anglers fishing from the bank at Four Mile Run are reporting catching fish. Bass are holding around the bridge pilings and power stanchions. Weightless stickbaits will take the fish. Don't neglect buzzbaits or poppers, as the water here is warm enough for a topwater bite. >>Continue>>>>

Chickahominy Lake Fishing Report – February 19, 2020

Posted on February 19, 2020 by Capt. Art

Capt. Art Conway of Conway’s River Rat Guide Service (804-514-1486) out of
Ed Allen’s Boats and Bait reported that Chickahominy Lake mid-day water
temperatures were in the upper 40’s in most areas in the lake on Wednesday
(2/19/2020), with slightly higher water temperatures in some creeks and at
the upper end of the lake. The lake level was about 4 inches above the top
of the dam and the water was medium brown and slightly cloudy in the central
lake. Current was much less than last week at the upper end of the lake.

Most blue cats and bullheads were along drop-offs and in channels in the
main lake, but some were on flats. When active, cats were hitting live
minnows and cut bait. Some crappie were still along main lake channel edges
or in channels, frequently near wood cover, but others were starting to move
into warmer water in the creeks and flats near creek mouths. continue >>>
