Virginia Beach Fishing Pier Fishing Report
We have been catching a nice variety of fish this week at the VA Beach Fishing Pier. Roundhead are being caught on a regular basis, with Spot and small Speckled Trout coming up, as well, at times.
Bluefish are still showing up everyday for anglers who enjoy tossing artificial baits, like Gotcha plugs, to catch fish site feeding. A few Spanish Mackeral have been taken too and we should see more since the water temperature has hit the low 70’s. As the Summer gets hotter, sometimes patterns develop, such as morning or evening producing the best catches, so call 757-428-2333 for the latest information.
Some small Cobia have been hitting, with most being under the 37 inch limit. Also being landed are Striped Bass, but again the smaller than 28 inch fish have had to be released back into the ocean.
Crabbing for Blue Crabs has really been good with many anglers filling their coolers with nice females, called Sook or Sally, which are loaded with succulent body meat.
If you are new to fishing or crabbing, stop by the Pier Tackle Shop, located on the Virginia Beach Fishing Pier, and they will be happy to help you get set up with the proper gear.
