Virginia Beach Fishing Pier Report – June 1, 2017

May turned out to be a productive month at the Va. Beach Fishing Pier. Some nice Bluefish, Speckled Trout and Small Stripers were available at different times throughout the month. A mixture of Spot and Roundhead have also been caught when bottom fishing with Bloodworms and Squid. While they are smaller in the Spring, as a rule, some decent fish have showed up.

The last few days some Spanish Mackerel have been caught with artificial baits, like Gotcha plugs and Squid Spoons, and we are looking forward to a good run this Summer.

The biggest news is probably the large amount of Blue Crabs being taken this year. While not everyone likes to crab, those who do are catching plenty. Lowering a crab net with a chicken neck tied inside is easy and fun for the whole family.

    1. Some small Croakers have been caught at the Virginia Beach Pier, but the Spot and Roundhead have been more plentiful.
