Virginia Beach Fishing Pier Update

The season at the Virginia Beach Fishing Pier is coming to a close. There have been a lot of Speckled Trout being caught most days this month. While some bottom fish are still being caught, the plan is to close for the season on Sunday Oct. 18.

Along with the Specs, some Spot, Roundhead, Bluefish and Croaker have been caught as they leave the bay for winter locations. There have even been some nice Blue Crabs pulled up.

Have a good Winter!

 

October Fishing At The Virginia Beach Fishing Pier

October Fishing At The Virginia Beach Fishing Pier

As many local anglers that fish on the Virginia Beach Fishing Pier in October, we wait for cold fronts to lower the water temperature in the area. This usually causes the fish to school up and begin to leave the Chesapeake Bay. Unfortunately, the weather created so much wind and rain in late September and early October that the ocean waters were to rough to fish.

There were some nice Red Drum released before the big blow, some as large as 52 inches. Round Head, Spot, Croaker and Speckled trout were also available to fishermen bouncing baits along the bottom.

The first week of October at the VA Beach Pier has seen an increase in Spot, but the big runs we have come to expect in the Fall haven’t materialized yet. Some decent Spot and Round Head have been caught by anglers this week, plus some small trout, Pompano and Bluefish.

The hours of operation are currently 8AM-8PM, weather permitting. Please call (757)428-2333
