I hope everyone is enjoying the fourth of July. Anglers have been catching a lot of fish on the Virginia Beach fishing pier this month. Good numbers of Spot have been caught and some big Roundhead or Kingfish continue to be pulled in almost every day.

A few keeper Trout and Puppy Drum are also being caught mixed in with the other bottom fish. Smaller blues and Spanish Mackerel haven’t been as plentiful yet this season, but there is still a lot of Summer left. Some small flounder have also taking bottom offerings, such as frozen minnows and cut bait. This is the time of year when the most diverse species can be hooked.

Fireworks for the 4th will be set off at 9:30 from a barge off the beach. Come on down and do a little fishing and crabbing, then watch the fireworks from the best seat at the oceanfront.
