Fishing Report for Wed, Oct 1st

Had sort of a slow day again. We have had some Spot out on the end and in one small spot in the middle. Overnight last night was slow, and yesterday was a few Spot and Croaker, and a few small Flounder.

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.

Yellow-bellied Spot should be starting up sometime soon. The Bay has reached 72 degrees. (Please see the links below for water temp.) Broad Bay in the Lynnhaven River is currently at 73 degrees, so it shouldn't be long until the water temps drop enough for the large stuff to start moving out of the river and into the Chesapeake Bay.

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 Tues, Sept 30th

Fishing was good up until the wind changed on Sunday. Sunday was slow. Yesterday we had quite a few "keeper" Speckled Trout. Today has been a bit slow, a few Spot and Croaker, and a few small Flounder. The wind is NE again, but it's only around 4-5 mph. We're hoping things will pick up on the incoming tide tonight at some point. (The tide will start in around 9:30/10pm.) The wind will be NE and up to 10 mph tomorrow, so we may do better then as well.

Crabbing is done for the season.

Yellow-bellied Spot should be starting up sometime soon. The Bay has reached 72 degrees. (Please see the links below for water temp.)
