Fishing Report for Wed, July 12

Had a group of kids out today; they had a blast and caught some Spot, Roundhead, and a few Croaker. They were small though, as they were using size 8 and size 6 hooks.

You should be able to catch yourself some nice Roundhead and/or some pan-sized Spot sometime this evening on the incoming tide (after 6pm and/or around dark); use size 4 hooks unless you want the guppies.

Crabbing remains good, but has been slowing down slightly in the middle of the day due to the heat.

Don't forget to check out the Pier Gear while you're here!

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

(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.
