VA Beach Fishing Pier Report April 15 2017
We have really seen some nice weather this year in April. The normal water temp is still somewhat chilly (mid 50’s), but The Clear Nosed Skates are definitely waiting for you to feed them some bait.
Blowfish, aka Puffers, are also around this time of year. The numbers vary from year to year, but they are fun for the kids to catch and if large enough make a tasty meal.
Some small Striped Bass have also been hanging around the Virginia Beach Pier and some days quite a few have been caught by jigging near the pilings.
A real treat was caught during the week by Julian, a pier employee and avid fisherman. A 21 inch Speckled Trout! See the picture below.
We never know what might show up in the Spring, so grab your gear and come on down. Hours of operation are still 8AM to 8PM when this post was written, but call 757-428-2333 to check on when extended hours will begin.
