Virginia Beach Fishing Report


Nice Trout!

The fall speckled trout bite continues. They are being caught throughout the lower Bay, in all three inlets and in the surf along the oceanfront.

Anglers working similar locations are finding a few puppy drum. Most of the large red drum have moved south to OBX waters.

Striped bass are being caught throughout the lower bay and in the rivers around bridges and piers with lights. Bay water temp is 58 degrees.

Sea bass, tautogs and flounder are available around all of the ocean wrecks. Togs should be available inside the bay, on the Cape Henry wreck and at the CBBT islands.

The Rudee Tours head boats are successfully targeting seabass on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Trips sellout in advance. Most are sold out now, but check with them for any cancellation openings.

When weather condition allow offshore trollers should find tuna and wahoo. Swordfish should be available to those targeting them.

Tilefish are available at the Norfolk Canyon.
