Speckled Trout Action Peaking, Stripers Are Getting Hungry

Long Bay Pointe Fishing Report

Virginia Beach – Speckled Trout action is peaking! The specks are available inside Lynnhaven Inlet, Rudee Inlet and the Eastern Shore creeks. Anglers are using soft plastics and Gulps! Along with the trout, an occasional puppy drum. Pictured below is Kathy Cooper and her husband Chad, they enjoyed a beautiful day inside Lynnhaven catching specks.

There should still be some nice flounder hanging around. They are usually found near ocean structure this time of year. Not many anglers are targeting them, but they should be there.

Tautog fishing has been slow but as water temps continue dropping the bite should pick up.

Rockfish numbers are increasing daily. Most are coming from the rivers, the Rappahannock, James, Elizabeth, and Potomac. The CBBT area is always holding a few fish. Connie at Long Bay is reporting a lot of keepers in the 20 to 30 inch range being caught.

Offshore boats have been stuck at the docks, as weather has not cooperated. If the offshore conditions settle down, the latest satellite imagery has a nice warm water eddy well with in reach of Virginia boats.
