We’re adding in fishing report from Buzz’s Marina for 2020. They’re technically located on the tip of Maryland, but given they fish as much Virginia waters, we’re putting them here😁

Mike from Buzz’s has been tearing the striped bass up man! I’ll let the picture tell the story…

Can Michael find them or what? He’s having a blast catching and releasing some nice rockfish on light tackle!💥

Moving south to the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel and Virginia Offshore action, Dr. Ken reports:(this from last week, but still fresh)

Charles Southall sent me a message saying that he was thinking about running across the bay for some catch and release fishing for rockfish.

I met him, David Brabrand and Gabe Sava at Dare Marina in the morning. It was my first time on the new Special Kate.

It was foggy all day and it rained but it was calmer than predicted. I was surprised by the number of boats near Cape Charles for catch and release fishing. Back when rockfish were crazy good: birds raining out of the sky, catches limited only by how many you could stand to crank, we’d go over there in January and never see another boat.

Today, we had a good amount of company trying to catch some fish to release. We had two bites and held on to one. I happened to be by the rod and got to catch the first rockfish on this Special Kate. The first one was good one and hopefully, it will just be the first of many.

North Carolina Fishing Reports

Pirates Cove Fishing Marina latest report from Jan 10, 2020;

We enjoyed the warmer weather today, here at Pirate’s Cove Marina! We had one boat from our offshore fleet go out and they reported the Tuna bite was still on with catches of Yellowfin and Blackfin!!

North Caroline Fisheries reports:

North Carolina Fishing Reports
North Carolina Fishing Reports Region Map

North Carolina Northern Region Winter Overview

Offshore Fishing
Anglers can catch plenty of yellowfin tuna, as well as wahoo, in the winter when conditions permit. Atlantic bluefin tuna have made their presence known and offer a great opportunity. Offshore bottom fishing can be excellent in the winter, as well. In midrange waters, anglers target striped bass (if they migrate to North Carolina waters), and red drum fishing can be very good during warmer periods. Anglers should find a regional fishing website that reports daily catches or contact a local tackle shop for up-to-date fishing reports. Anglers may want to improve their chances of a great day of fishing by using the services of a charter boat or guide.

Inlets/Sounds/Bays
When weather permits, fishing will be heavy with anglers targeting striped bass. Striped bass fishing was good this fall at Mann’s Harbor and surrounding areas and in the Roanoke, Croatan and northern Pamlico sounds. Fishing was especially good near bridges or any other structure. Striped bass anglers should check out the Wanchese Harbor, as well. Striped bass fishing is managed through a quota, so anglers should also check with the Division of Marine Fisheries before heading out. Other good winter catches are spotted seatrout and red drum. Good places to fish include around the bridge at Pirates Cove, barrier islands, Roanoke Sound and Oregon Inlet’s Green Island Slough and rock jetty. Fishing is generally best from pre-dawn to mid-morning hours, then again just before dark.

Piers/Shore
Piers are currently closed. Most will re-open around Easter. Beach anglers may have a tough time fishing this time of year due to rough surf and adverse weather. But when conditions permit, some of the largest red drum are taken from the surf in the winter. Bluefish blitzes can happen this time of year, but it’s been a long time since North Carolina observed this kind of activity. There is also the possibility of some excellent speckled trout surf fishing on the beaches from Rodanthe southward.

North Carolina Central Region Winter Overview

Offshore Fishing
There will be plenty of excellent fishing opportunities onboard charter boats during the winter. The central area of the coast has become known for its Atlantic bluefin tuna fishery. Usually, cold weather has an impact on when those giants show up, but this season they are already here. How long they stay around will depend on the weather, as well. Other offshore species, such as king mackerel, yellowfin tuna and wahoo, will be available to anglers fishing the Gulf Stream. Bottom fishing for a variety of reef fishes is also excellent during the winter months. Several head boats operate throughout the year. Some of the best snapper and grouper catches occur during the winter. Extended and overnight fishing trips are offered. Also, bluefin tuna head boat trips are sometimes offered. Anglers on private boats can enjoy many of the same opportunities as those fishing on charter boats. Anglers fishing offshore will have access to excellent catches of king mackerel, snapper, grouper and other reef fish. In past years, with very cold temperatures, striped bass appeared on Cape Lookout Shoals. Anglers shouldn’t forget about the fishing on the eastern side of Cape Lookout. December should provide good false albacore fishing

Inlets/Sounds/Bays
Speckled trout fishing was good this fall and there were plenty of nice trout around as well. The upper creeks of the White Oak, New, Neuse, Bay, Pamlico and Pungo rivers should offer good speckled trout fishing. Creek fishing for speckled trout is a specialized skill, and anglers may want to consider using a local guide to improve fishing opportunities.

Piers/Surf
Most piers close for the winter season. Some may allow access, but catches will be limited. Shore fishing activity will be limited, as well.

North Carolina Southern Region Winter Overview

Ocean
Offshore fishing can be fantastic during the winter months. Bluewater trolling for wahoo can be very good, and vertical jigging and top water fishing for blackfin tuna is outstanding when weather conditions allow. African pompano and good numbers of cobia will bite on jigs, as well. King mackerel fishing can be outstanding around Frying Pan Tower. Anglers should look for king mackerel in water temperatures around 67 degrees Fahrenheit and warmer. Bottom fishing for black sea bass, groupers and other various reef fish is good in the winter months.

Inlets/Sounds/Bays
As the water temperature falls, things begin to slow down a little. Most anglers target trout and drum in the winter. Most of the trout action will take place around Masonboro and Little River rock jetties. Those targeting red drum will find the bays and creeks behind Bald Head Island productive. Also, the striped bass fishery in the Cape Fear River heats up during the winter months. The most productive striped bass fishing occurs around downtown Wilmington.

Piers/Shore
Shore fishing is very limited in the winter months. Most piers close after Thanksgiving weekend and do not reopen until March. For those that do stay open, catches likely will be limited to puffers, skates and dog sharks. Fishing for puffers can be very good on piers during the winter months.

2018 Virginia Saltwater Fishing Season Kicking Off – New Fishing Regulations

Virginia 2018 Saltwater Fishing RegulationsThe 2018 Virginia Saltwater Fishing Season is getting ready to kick off. Capt. Ken gives us a preview of new fishing regulations for this season and what we can expect.

Spring has sprung and a new fishing season is upon us. There have been some changes for this year and likely, there will be more to come.

Shark fishing has become even more regulated this year. Anglers fishing for sharks in federal waters must now use non-offset circle hooks. They also have to have a special shark endorsement with their HMS permit. We catch sharks in state waters but if you do have an HMS permit (used to be your tuna permit) for fishing offshore, you have to abide by circle-hook rule even in state waters if you are fishing from an HMS permitted vessel. You can get this endorsement online, while ordering your permit. You watch a video on shark identification which is followed by a quiz.

NOAA has been encouraging anglers to release shortfin makos for some time. Now you will have to release most any that you catch. The possession limit is still one fish per boat but the minimum size has been increased to a 83-inch fork length.

There has been a good run of large bluefin tuna. We are allowed to keep one “trophy” bluefin tuna per vessel per year but what has become the norm, this fishery has been closed early again this year. The current bluefin tuna regulations allows for the retention of one bluefin tuna per vessel per day measuring at least 27 inches but less than 73 inches fork length.

The bluefin tuna have been large this spring. Before the closure of the trophy season boats out of Oregon Inlet, along with some boats making the run south out of Virginia, experienced great action on fish in the 500 plus pound class. On the last day the trophy fishery was open, an 877 pound bluefin was weighed in as the pending North Carolina record. Big tuna continue to be caught but now must be released.

Tautog regulations have been relaxed a bit. The bag limit has been increased to 4 fish. Minimum size is 16 inches. The season length has been greatly increased with a closure from May 16 through June. It is open the rest of the year.

Sea bass is another fishery that has been expanded. We had an open fishery this February for the first time in many years. The regulations for the rest of the year will be set at the April VMRC meeting but are expected to be an opening May 15 with the season open the rest of the year, without the one-month closure in the fall that we have had for a number of years. We also expect to have a January and February sea bass fishery for 2019 but keep following this.

The keeper-size for flounder has been reduced to 16.5 inches. The bag limit is 4-fish per person.

Tilefish regulations are undergoing major changes. We had no regulations from Virginia on north. When this fishery was “discovered”, Virginia enacted regulations while waiting for the federal system to catch up. Virginia cannot set regulations for federal waters but can regulate what is brought into Virginia. We have had a 7 fish tilefish (combined species) and a 1 fish grouper bag limit with a year-round fishery for a number of years. The federal system has caught up with tilefish (no changes with grouper so still just Virginia’s one per person bag limit). We now have an 8-fish golden tilefish bag limit and that fishery is open year-round. Blueline tilefish was closed. It will re-open May 1 and remain open through October under the most bizarre bag-limits I have ever seen. Recreational anglers will have different bag limits based on the type of boat they are fishing from. If you are on an inspected vessel (those licensed to carry more than 6 passengers) your bag limit is 7 fish. Examples of these boats here are the High Hopes and Ocean Pearl. If you are fishing from most charter boats, your bag limit is 5 fish. If you are fishing from non-charter boat, your bag limit is 3 fish. These new blueline tilefish regulations come with new federal reporting requirements. These new requirements are not being applied to those fishing under the 3-fish bag limit this year. We still have Virginia’s mandatory permit and reporting requirements for tilefish and grouper.

Cobia regulations have been very contentious the past couple of years with federal managers using data that is simply unbelievable to many. Virginia did not go along with a federal closure and set very conservative regulations for state waters. This year, the ASMFC is involved with cobia management and we are working to get better data. Based on what data we have, a 3-year rolling soft quota has been set. This gives us a number to aim for but will not require a fishery shut down if we get some crazy spike one year in survey estimates.

Virginia had the option of relaxing cobia regulations this year. We could have increased the boat limit to 4 fish, gotten rid of the “only one over 50 inches”, and gotten rid of the no-gaffing provision. A bit surprisingly, the vast majority of anglers and charter captains who weighed in favored keeping the boat limit at 3 fish and keeping the only one big fish rule. They did want to get rid of the no gaff rule. There were a number of options on the season with the majority favoring a June 1 opening and remaining open through the end of September. The second most popular choice was a May 15 opening and a September 16 closure. Personally, this second option was my favorite and I have not gaffed a cobia in years. What I supported at VMRC was what was most asked for by recreational anglers and that is what passed. I was rather proud of Virginia’s anglers supporting regulations more conservation oriented than we could have done.

So for 2018, our cobia season will begin on June 1 and you can keep fish through September. The daily bag limit remains 1 fish per person up to 3 fish per boat. Only one fish per boat may be over 50 inches. The minimum size is still 40 inches. The prohibition on gaffing is removed but please do not use a gaff unless you are sure it is fish that you are going to keep. The free Cobia Permit along with mandatory reporting is still required for an ongoing effort to get more accurate data.

We’ve been getting a lot of questions about the Cobia Bowl. The Cobia Bowl was begun as a fun way for anglers to help gather information about Virginia’s cobia fishery and to help raise funds for fisheries research. Due to great sponsorship support and angler participation, this fishing tournament has been a great success. We are pleased to announce that we have even bigger and better plans for 2018. The Cobia Bowl is joining forces with the Old Dominion University Alumni Association for the Monarch Cobia Classic. Our goal is to create the largest cobia tournament on the East Coast. We invite Cobia Bowl sponsors and anglers to join us for what will be a fantastic event with great fishing, bigger parties, and even more fun all while supporting great causes. The Monarch Cobia Classic will raise funds to support scholarship and research. This event will be held July 19-21, during the peak of the cobia season. For more information about the Monarch Cobia Classic and to learn about sponsorship opportunities, visit www.odualumni.org/cobiaclassic .

So, what has been happening out on the water so far in the 2018 Virginia Saltwater Fishing Season? In addition to the great bluefin fishing out of Oregon Inlet, both yellowfin tuna and some bigeye tuna have been caught. Blackfin tuna are being caught out of Hatteras. As early as late January, big red drum were being caught out of the Hatteras surf during that early spring we had. Typically, about 2 weeks after that bite starts, we get them here on Virginia’s Eastern Shore. It was simply way too early, but there were rumors of both red and black drum encounters on the seaside. Then winter came back and stopped that talk. Now that spring has come back, expect the black and red drum fisheries to begin soon.

We had a winter fish kill that affected speckled trout, juvenile red and black drum, mullet and even striped bass. We will see if this has a significant impact on our fisheries with speckled trout being the greatest concern. The population appeared to be healthy and growing this past fall. Striped bass have made their moved into the bay and rivers and are available for catch and release fishing until May when there are some open seasons. Anglers practicing catch and release in the rivers have also caught some puppy drum with some of those in the keeper-slot range. Boston mackerel have made a showing and some have been caught by gill-netters in the bay. Tautog are the main fishery at the moment with the coastal wrecks being the most productive location. Bay structures have produced some fish during the warm times then shut down after the snow events. The bay will turn back on quickly as water temperatures raise a bit. The fish are there, it is just their activity level that is affected.

Virginia Fishing Report for Week of Sept 18, 2016

Virginia Chesapeake Bay Fishing Report Cobia TaggingVirginia Fishing Report. Tautog catches have been very good for those targeting sheepshead at the CBBT. They have had to release those fish but that changed as of September 20 when the tautog season re-opens. While tautog opens up, sea bass closes for a month. The sea bass season is closed as of September 22. The other season changes include the closure of cobia…make sure to get your catch reports in….and the opening of the bay striped bass season on October 4.

Virginia fishing for striped bass has not been all that good for big stripers. There are a lot of small striped bass in the bay. Last fall, they were mostly too small to keep. This fall, there will be a lot 20-plus inch available. We are having very good spot run. Nice spot are being caught in all of the rivers and inlets. Speckled trout and puppy drum are on the flats and around anywhere there is grass. Any dock with a light on it is a good location to look for specks, pups, and striped bass. Big red drum are being caught at the CBBT.

Spanish mackerel continue to be caught along the oceanfront along with false albacore. The coastal wrecks are holding sea bass, triggerfish and flounder. Just remember the sea bass closure.

The offshore bite is mixed-bag. Billfish are being caught but it has not been the epic September bite we have become used to. Dolphin, wahoo and some tuna are being caught. It is a good time to try for swordfish. Bottom fishing is producing good catches of tilefish and some grouper.

The next Peninsula Salt Water Sport Fisherman’s Association tournament will be the Grafton Fishing Supply Spot Tournament September 23 and 24. It will conclude with a club picnic at Dare Marina on September 24. Bring your spot to the picnic to be weighed-in (and eaten). The awards for July’s Youth and Ladies Tournament will also be presented at the picnic. 

Thanks Capt.Ken Neill for the Virginia fishing report!

Virginia Beach Fishing Report – Updated November 19, 2016

Virginia Beach Fishing Report - November  20, 2016

JT with a moster Tilefish

The latest Virginia Beach Chesapeake Bay fishing report. It is that striped bass time of year. Resident striped bass have been around in good numbers. Most any structure with a light on it has been holding striped bass and speckled trout. Most bass are too small to keep but, keepers are being caught everywhere. The largest fish have been coming from the York and James Rivers where rockfish to 38 inches have been caught. More medium-sized fish are showing up throughout the bay and the CBBT tunnel is holding some fish. This fishery will continue to improve as the water continues to cool and the large fish migrate down from their summer haunts.

Other than striped bass, speckled trout and puppy drum have been keeping anglers entertained. There have been a lot of small fish around but as the season has progressed, more have reached keeper-size. They are being caught on the flats, up in the creeks, rivers, and inlets and form the fishing piers.

Tautog action is excellent at the CBBT and over other bay structures. Sheepshead should be gone but a few big sheepshead continue to be caught. This latest cold snap may be what finally moves them out but right now, they are still a possibility.

The coastal wrecks are holding sea bass, triggerfish, flounder, bluefish and some big sandtigers. Offshore bottom fishing is very good for tilefish. The sea bass season is open through the end of December so the sea bass by-catch is a bonus and the dogfish have not shown up yet.

There has not been much tuna action out of Virginia though there is some water east of the Cigar that should be holding some fish. Boats sailing out of Oregon Inlet are catching yellowfin tuna and wahoo. Boats leaving out of Hatteras are catching king mackerel, wahoo and blackfin tuna. Bluefin tuna should be showing up off of our coast soon.

Captain Max King will be the speaker at the November 15 PSWSFA meeting. He will be talking about catching jumbo striped bass. Meetings are free and you do not need to be a member to attend: www.pswsfa.com/meetings.htm

The club’s Irv Fenton Memorial Rockfish Tournament, sponsored by Wilcox Bait & Tackle, begins on December 1 and will run through the entire month of December.

Tune in next week to get the latest Virginia Beach fishing report. Until then, Tight lines!

Thanks to Dr. Ken Neill, III for the picture and reporting.

Big Stripers in and around Maryland Chesapeake Bay

It might be cold in Maryland, but the fishing for stripers is pretty hot for light tackle and fly fishing anglers. The below was caught the other day while casting light tackle lures in one of the many warm water discharges in the Chesapeake bay. You can read a full fishing report here. Nice striper man!
