bucket of spotThe fishing at the Virginia Beach fishing pier has been pretty good the past week. Once Summer arrives there are usually good catches of bottom fish. Spot and Roundhead have been the most plentiful fish with some Spadefish and Trout thrown into the mix. Spanish Mackerel and Bluefish haven’t been cooperating lately, but there is still a lot of Summer left and they can really turn on if the bait is available inshore.

One of the main things affecting this seasons fishing has been yo-yoing water temperatures. This has been up and down the Eastern Atlantic coast this year and will help some populations of fish while maybe slowing down the migrations of others. One thing about pier fishing, every season presents challenges and the anglers who can adapt to the changes will have the most success.

Crabbing has been steady and it looks like another productive year. If  Clearnose Skates are your thing, night fishing can be a good time.

We look forward to seeing you at the pier and with the 4th of July coming up, make some plans to enjoy the oceanfront festivities. Fireworks and music are part of the fun. Give us a call at (757) 428-2333 for more information.
