Still on Rockfish

We had some windy days last weekend which slowed up the catches but we made up for it as the week went on.  Today we had our limit on the Stripers–16 fish and the average weight about 6 lbs. The Red  Drum are at the Cell  and working their way up the Bay and one or two bluefish were caught here this week also so things are looking good.  May was an awesome month for charters but June looks a little slack right now.  I’ve started running the evening charters so if you want a little cooler weather & a nice sunset, an evening fishing charter or dinner cruise is an option also. Thank everyone who fished with me and hope everyone had an  enjoyable time.

 

 

General Rockfish Season comes in this week.

We’re seeing smaller rockfish now so it shouldn’t be a problem catching two fish per person when the general season comes in on May 16th.  With the weather so cool this year the rockfish should be around longer & the entire month of June should be good rockfishing also.  In June the big Red Drum usually arrive, as well as, the Bluefish.  I’ve got a few weekdays in May still open and a good selection of days in June available.

Northern Neck Heritage Tour

Last week I participated in a heritage tour that was organized by George & Jan Beckett of Northern Neck Heritage Tours.  Approximately 70 people from all over the U.S. came to the Northern Neck to see a little bit of our way of life.  I took morning & afternoon groups out and showed them how we tong for oysters, as well as, gave them an overview of how we make a living working on the water.  If you have a group that would like to go on a tour please contact me.
