So this is pretty big news... according to VDGIF sources, Lake Anna is scheduled to receive 70,000 F1 N1 "tiger" bass this spring. June is the target stocking month. All will be chemically marked so biologists can study their growth. If the fishery responds anything like the Chickahominy River or Smith Mountain Lake did, we are likely looking at 10 pounders seven to eight years after the stocking. Tiger bass are hybrids of Florida and northern strain largemouth bass that grow quickly, bite aggressively and are hardy enough to withstand Virginia winters. Imagine what they might do on the "hot" side of the lake...

Saltwater Not a lot going on on the saltwater front, or at least, not a lot of reports. There's plenty of Rockfish available inside the bay for catch and release fishing. There are loads of big fish being caught on live eels still. Ocean anglers are catching plenty of Tautogs on wrecks and reefs. There's been some Bluefin Tuna caught, along with some Yellowfin Tuna, and some Big Eye Tuna. Swordfish have become very popular the last few months, and some notable sized Swords are being caught.

 Freshwater - Warmer than normal weather has the fish in many places scattered. Some are still deep, while there's also many fish shallow. Tidal river fish are almost always shallower than lake fish, but many are reporting that the Bass are holding to shallow cover constantly. The Chick River, Lake, and James River are prime examples. 21 lbs was the winning weight from the Chick River over the weekend. 19 lbs was 2nd, with a 10 lb Lunker! The 10 lber was reportedly caught from the Lake. Good catches are occurring on the Rapp, Pamunkey, and Mattaponi Rivers also. The Crappie on these rivers have been surprising to some anglers, as many dismiss tidal rivers as good Crappie choices.

Steve Chaconas National Bass Guide Service

Cold Blast
Colder this week, but it’s mid-January. Days are getting a bit longer and some of the best fishing can start. Water will be warming very slowly going forward, activating the food chain. It’s the one time of the year that stained water isn’t a horrible thing as it will warm ahead of the rest of the water. Fish deep and steep drops close to shallow flats in out of the current areas. With water only around 40, you have to fish slowly and downsize line, Gamma 15 pound braid with 6 pound fluorocarbon leader on spinning gear. The same techniques used in the last few months will be effective, drop shot, shaky head, split shot and jigs. 
Only in the mid 30s this week with overnight lows in the low 20s. But sun provides some neutralization of the cold temperatures with some thermal warming. Warming into the mid 40s by mid-week and to 50 by the weekend. 
Leaving baits in one spot for up to 5 seconds or more, fish are aware of baits in their zone but will not chase. Sometimes they pick baits that have been sitting for a while. Bites are very light, so be aware of any weight of the fish. It’s best to use open hooks to allow for easier penetration. Keep hooks sharp!
