Fishing Report for Sat, May 6

The pier is only open up to the "T." PLEASE DO NOT PASS THE BARRICADE RAILING! It is for your safety.

Today they are catching some nice-sized Roundhead, a few medium-sized Croaker, and a few small Spot. Nothing big has come up yet, but most everything big that's come up over the last week has come up in the evening and overnight.

WEAR SOMETHING WARM. The wind will be blowing tonight and it is chilly out there.

Crabs have been biting and we would say the catch has been okay. They are the average size you would expect for early in the season; the water is still a little cool.

VMRC Regulation Cards have not yet been issued this year. Please read the regulations online:

Just a reminder to everyone that WE DO NOT GIVE OUT INDIVIDUAL FISHING REPORTS VIA MESSENGER. Please continue to check our Newsfeed and if our report is not up to date enough for you, please feel free to call for the latest fishing report 757-481-7071. (New reports may not be posted on Sundays and Mondays because tech support is not available.)

(For the most accurate tides, use Cape Henry and/or Lynnhaven Inlet for the address - the pier is about half-way between the two points)
Incoming tide is typically better than outgoing tide. Incoming tide is approx. 1 hour after Low up to 1 hour before High.
