Oct. 11 009Rain, wind, & rough seas were the name of the game this past weekend.  Friday’s group came all the way from Texas and they toughed it out. We still caught fish (bluefish & stripers) but it was so nasty & wet I only got the camera out to get a photo of the gull that got hung up in our lines.  Due to the weather conditions I decided it would be in everybody’s best interest to cancel the trips the remainder of the weekend.  Today, it was a much different story…warm, sunny, and calm.  Everybody seemed to enjoy jigging and we ended up catching our limit of stripers on top of the water.  When I don’t have a charter I’ve been doing some commercial gill netting.  I’m catching nice (10-12 lb.) rock in the nets so I know they’re here.  Call 804-529-6725 or email me and I’ll give you a list of available days so you can get into the action.

Despite some really windy weather we had great fishing.  We had better luck with the Blues than the Striped Bass(Rockfish) although we saw a slight improvement on the size of the Rock.  As the temperature cools we will see the Blues start to taper off and the Rockfish pick up.   We saw a lot of breaking Blues and we chummed with light tackle so everyone could enjoy the fiesty fight of the Blues.  Thanks to all who fished on the Bay Quest this past week.  Hope to see you all again.

Cooler Temps — Hotter Fishing!

You couldn’t ask for any better weather or fishing.  Fall  is my favorite time of year and I enjoy hearing the geese honking as they fly over while I’m working on the water.  This past week we caught bluefish, red drum, rockfish & spot.  I also had a couple of chartered dinner cruises in the evenings  where we watched the sun set and the full moon rise.  We had lots of fun and I thank everyone for coming down.  I have plenty of fall/winter days still available so get a group together & give me a call.  Capt.
