Fishing Report for Wed, May 3rd

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

Today they have been mostly picking up some decent sized Roundhead. Hopefully the change in the wind direction to ENE will help out.

Crabs are 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.

We would recommend a jacket or sweatshirt if you're coming out tonight.

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 on Facebook. Please continue to check here, or our Facebook 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.)

All our info can be found here:

(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.
