Fishing Report for Thurs, Oct 23rd

We've been getting nice-sized Spot and Roundhead most of the day. They aren't biting fast, but they have been relatively steady.

The wind has dies down quite a bit. As of this post, it's 17 mph and bouncing between NW and WNW.

The water temp has dropped a while degree since yesterday; it's now around 65 degrees.

You are definitely gonna want warm clothes and possibly your jacket from your rain gear to cut the wind!!

F.Y.I. We are currently the only Fishing Pier in the area STILL OPEN 24 HOURS, 7 DAYS A WEEK!!

Crabbing is done for the season.

For an updated fishing report on Sat, Sun and Mon please call - our tech support is off duty. 757-481-7071

Yellow-bellied Spot should be starting up sometime soon. The Bay has reached around 66 degrees. (Please see the links below for water temp.) Broad Bay in the Lynnhaven River is currently at ?? degrees.

For those of you who wish to complain about the Gill Nets and Haul Seine nets that surround the pier, please contact your local legislator as the Commonwealth of Virginia makes those laws and the Virginia Marine Resource Commission only carries them out.
The Code of Virginia only states that the nets must be "...300 yards of the sides or end of a commercial fishing pier."
That code can be found here: https://leg1.state.va.us/cgi-bin/legp504.exe?000+cod+28.2-302
In 2012, legislation was proposed by Delegate Christopher P. Stolle to allow the Virginia Marine Resource Commission to increase that distance if necessary; the legislation was tabled and remains in the Agriculture, Chesapeake and Natural Resources Committee. That Bill, and it's history, can be found here:

Fishing Report for Wed, Oct 22nd

Check out the photo of the seagulls enjoying the NW wind that's blowing 31-33 mph.

They had a bunch of Spot overnight and early morning again, but we have no idea if they would have bitten during the day today as nearly everyone left when the wind kicked up. We are betting they are out there for the catching though. Come out if you're brave enough ;o)

You are definitely gonna want warm clothes and your rain gear!!
