Saltwater Bigger Rockfish are beginning to get caught from the bay itself, instead of the tributaries. Some 48 inch plus fish are being caught currently. Now is the time for the live eels. Stretch 25's, and tandem rigs are working well inside the Rappahannock River. Inside the York River has been good, but better catches this week, have come from inside the bay. The fish haven't quite made it down to Cape Charles yet. Continue>>>>>-

 Freshwater  Things were tough on the freshwater side of fishing, over the weekend. The cold, rainy weather on Sunday made things tough during the winter series on Lake Anna.  13 lbs was the winning weight. The previous weeks have seen limits in the 20 lb range or better. Crankbaits are a good bet for covering water quickly and effectively. Rock structure has been better for the Bass in many of the lakes at this time. Kerr lake elevation is at 298.83 ft. Crappie have been caught good from the bridges and from the mid to deeper brush. Continue>>>>>

It’s a Hairy Time
No question jigs are the most versatile year round bait. When water gets cold, bass still eat, and they eat jigs. But which one?
A warm, wet beginning to the week with highs 55-60. Wednesday could have snow showers with a high only around 40. Cooler Thursday with another wintry mix for Friday. Weekend a lot nicer around 50. Water is in the low 40s.
Nothing beats a jig for bass. In the warmer months big bulky jigs on heavy line are great for fishing cover. Swimming jigs also work great. But in cold water, a smaller and bulkier jig will catch slow moving cold water bass. Hair jigs fit the bill. They are compact and with no movement, the hairs are still active. A good hair jig must have a thin wire hook to penetrate tough bass mouths. Light line is also key. continue>>>>>>

FISHING REPORT By Charlie Taylor



Fishing Report - December 6, 2019

OVERVIEW: Most gamefish are holding in deeper water during this season of the year. Unless there is a warm water discharge in the vicinity, the fish will be deep and very sluggish. They will not move far or fast to feed, and successful anglers know that small baits, fished very slowly, are the better choices. "Dead-sticking" is one of the better techniques at this time of year. This involves casting a grub or jig 'n pig and allowing it to sink to the bottom. Once it hits bottom, it should be allowed to sit with no motion for as long as the angler can stand it. After the initial wait, move the bait very slightly and let it sit again. Self control and patience are required, and the slower the retrieve, the more successful the angler. One trick that is practiced by veteran anglers is to cast a small, plastic grub, saturated with fish attractant, into 15-20 feet of water and set the rod down. Leave the bail open and use another rod to work a different lure. Keep an eye on the spinning rod, as the line should start peeling off in 5-10 minutes. continue>>>>>>

Chickahominy Lake Fishing Report – December 4, 2019

Posted on December 4, 2019 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 the lower main lake and lower in the
major creeks and the upper end of the lake on Wednesday (12/4/2019). The
lake level was about even with the top of the dam and the water was light
brown and very slightly cloudy in the central lake, with some cloudy water
along downwind shorelines.

Some blue cats and bullheads were along drop-offs and in channels in the
main lake while others were dispersed onto flats and into creeks. Some cats
were suspended rather than holding near the bottom. When active, cats were
hitting live minnows and cut bait. Most crappie were along main lake
channel edges or in channels, frequently near wood cover. continue >>>
