Weekly Fishing Report Image

(Next Update: September 28, 2018) 


Saltwater- There hasn't been much to report on the saltwater side due to Hurricane Florence. Some of the charter boats out of Hatteras reported catching Wahoo and Mahi over the last two days. Historically, fishing picks up tremendously after a major storm, so the next few days should be interesting. There have been some Cobia anglers out in the bay this week, and good catches have been made. Hopefully, next weeks report will reflect the fishing that September is known for. 

Freshwater- It's pretty much the same story on the freshwater side, as far as reports go. The best news of the past week comes from Lake Anna, where Dean and Trey Perrin weighed in a 22 lb 5 fish limit of Bass on Sunday. 2nd place was Tommy and Jeff Bailey, with 15 lbs. Fishing has been tough around the area, especially at Kerr Lake. This should change, as the lake level is projected to be 312' on Fri. the 21st. The James is currently at flood stage, but the Chickahominy could and should be fishable this weekend. The smaller lakes in the area may be the best bet for fishing this weekend. Small ponds should provide excellent opportunities
