Weekly Fishing Report: Includes June Outlook

Steve Chaconas National Bass Guide Service

Returning to Normal

June 17, 2018


Tides not nearly as high. Clarity improving. Milfoil Grass is growing but hydrilla is slow to emerge...that’s a good thing. 

Water temperature is warming to the upper 70s. Very hot on Monday and Tuesday in the upper 90s. Mid 80s for Wednesday and a chance of rain on Thursday and Friday into the weekend.

Topwaters when water is clear. Early morning low tides make for a better opportunity as lures are closer to fish and there’s low light. In areas with sparse grass, use 10-pound test Gamma Copoly. It floats and offers less resistance on the water’s surface to allow baits to have more action.




FISHING REPORT By Charlie Taylor

Fishing Report - June 22, 2018

POTOMAC RIVER - D.C. - Main river bridge pilings are holding largemouth bass and catfish. These fish are taking deep-diving crankbaits, plastic worms and grubs, and jig 'n pig baits on falling tides. The Washington Channel grassbed is giving up some bass to anglers working spinnerbaits, buzzbaits, frogs and plastic worms in the grass. Rattling crankbaits, retrieved parallel to the dropoff, are also taking some nice fish. The structure outside Blue Plains is giving up some good bass on plastic worms and frogs, topwater baits and spinnerbaits. Submerged barges are also giving up bass to anglers fishing jig 'n pig and plastic baits along the deeper edges. Fox Ferry pilings are holding lots of good fish. These fish are taking crankbaits, plastic worms and jig 'n pig on ebb tides. Topwater baits are taking some fish early and late in the day.

POTOMAC RIVER: Reel Bass Adventures reports water conditions are great and bass fishing is good. Top water is always good for bass along marsh banks, pad fields or grass beds. Buzz baits, whopper ploppers and chuggers will all draw strikes. Inside edges of grass beds have bass that like small spinner baits or chatter baits as well as hard jerk baits. Follow up with large plastic worms. The center of grass beds produce bass that like large worms, creature baits and jig-and-craw combos. Decent-size yellow perch also occupy grass beds.

LAKE ANNA: McCotter’s Lake Anna Guide Service reports water temps in the mid-80s. Bass anglers should target schooled fish from Route 208 down to the power plant with soft plastic jerkbaits and topwater plugs as well as off-shore structure like rocks and brush mid and up lake with crankbaits and worms.

Chickahominy Lake Fishing Report – June 20, 2018

Posted on June 20, 2018 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 middle to high 80’s to low 90’s in the main lake on
Wednesday (6/20/2018). The lake level was about even with the top of the
dam. The water was dark brown and moderately cloudy in the central lake.

Blue cats and bullheads were scattered on flats, along drop-offs, and in
channels in the main lake and in creeks, and were hitting live minnows and
cut bait. Some crappie were along shorelines, on flats, on drop-offs and in
channels in the main lake, especially near cypress trees and other wood
cover, while some crappie were in the lower parts of major creeks.

|Fishing forecast: The wait's over; yellowfin tuna are on the scene

The Virginian-Pilot

It’s that much-anticipated time of year when yellowfin tuna invade the waters of the mid-Atlantic. While numbers have been steadily growing off the coast of northeastern North Carolina, reports are starting to trickle in of fish being taken in the Norfolk Canyon – pointing to a continuing migration to the north.

June action was exceptional for several weeks last year, with these tasty brutes providing some fast and furious action all along our coast. Stories of six- and eight-bait spreads being blown up all at once were more the norm than a rarity.

There is also a Fall Classic that will be held in October and will be a 100% payback event. All you have to do to be eligible for the classic is fish one regular season event.
Contact: Chris Craft or Dave Fauntleroy 540-895-5900 ext5
As of May 27, we are averaging 21 boats per event.

    BASS- The best top water bite of the year is upon us, the spawn is over and the females have recovered and are hungry. From first light until the sun gets high, you can chase shady pockets with buzz baits, poppers, walking baits and wake baits, catching fish the entire time. On overcast days it can last all day long. 

After the early morning feed is over, look for fish to seek out their own shade under boat docks, inside of the willow grass, around bridge pilings and deep water. A shakey head rigged with a straight tail worm is one of the best choices you can make for fishing around and under boat docks. A wacky rigged stick bait would be my second choice.

If venturing up lake, fish the willow grass along the shoreline. Typically, the thicker the grass the better. Make long casts with hollow body frogs and buzz baits, make sure you have some sort of soft plastic bait to throw in if and when the fish misses your bait on top.  You can also flip/pitch jigs and creature baits to the grass and around docks. 

Towards the end of the month, the top water bite will slow down drastically and the deep bite will turn on. Deep diving crankbaits, large Texas rigged worms will become a major player once this happens.  You are going to want to fish these deeper baits around deep docks, brush piles, rock piles and bridge pilings. 
   
CRAPPIE- The crappie have finished their spawn and are back out in deep water around bridge pilings, brush piles and just following bait around the lake.

Fish a small minnow rigged under a slip bobber with minimal weight (just enough to keep minnow in place) or an abundance of artificial baits. Mt favorite is a 2" Big Bite Lures Curly Tail Grub rigged on a Mizmo 1/16oz jig head in Tractor Green, Green Weenie, Back/Blue Chart Tail and Wally World. 
  

 STRIPER- This is one of my favorite times of year to chase striper, the shad and herring have finished their spawn and soon there will be pods of fry everywhere and they will be eating as much as possible every chance they get. 

First thing of a morning, you can find them chasing bait to the surface. A broken back redfin is my favorite bait to entice explosive and violent strikes from aggressive line sides! A walking bait is fun to fish, but the hook up percentage is drastically lowered, due to the just slapping at the bait. The redfin is sub-surface, so you still get the top water strike, without the heartache of the fish missing the bait. 


Once the morning surface feed is over, you can either troll them up or drop spoons to them. If trolling, Chart/Blue or Sexy Shad DD-22's and Chrome/Blue or Chrome/Black deep diving redfins are both great choices. If using a redfin, tie a four to six foot leader off of the center split ring and put a 1/4oz buck tail behind it. Look for the from the power plant to just up lake from the splits.
