Inside Rudee Inlet the water is warming up and the Croaker and Spot have continued moving in. They are biting mostly on live bloodworms. There are still some keeper flounders being caught, they seem to be biting best on live minnows. As for the Bluefish inside of Rudee Inlet the bite has seemed to have dropped off a little, though they are still being caught on cut bait as well as top water artificial lures.
The inshore bite continues to pick up as our summer weather is starting to warm up the water. There are some Bluefish being caught along the beaches as well as a few Spanish Mackerel. There have been a bunch of Skates caught along the bottom, as well as a few flounder.
The offshore bite is slowly but surely picking up. We have seen a nice mix of Mahi and Tuna brought in. Yesterday we even had a 178lb Big Eye Tuna hit the docks as well as a citation Mahi. The deep drop bite is always good out of Virginia Beach. Yesterday a boat pulled in with a cart full of bottom fish including a citation Blueline Tilefish! Also in the catch was a mix of Sea Bass, Golden Tilefish, Rose Fish, and a few Barrel fish! Check out the photos below!!!
