With only a few days left in the summer, the best saltwater fishing season is upon us! Up and down the east coast bait begins it’s migration out of the shallows and the predators follow, feeding voraciously before winter sets in.
The Chesapeake Bay has had a recent run of puppy drum, many smaller fish in the 16-20” range but a few hitting the 24” mark. Trout are also showing themselves, mostly 10-16”.
Striped bass numbers have been improving as the summer stretches into fall and we expect a good October fishing for them!
Fall is also the prime time of the year for fishing in Cape Lookout North Carolina. The beautiful Crystal Coast offers shots at tailing and cruising Redfish, line burning False Albacore, Spanish Mackerel, Sharks, Bluefish, Speckled Trout and more. In my opinion, this is the best saltwater fishing on the East Coast. It is truly epic and a very pretty location as well.
We have several dates available for guided trips in both Virginia in the Chesapeake Bay and Cape Lookout North Carolina. Be sure to get in on the action before the winter doldrums set in!
