Wreck Fishing steady and waiting for mackeral...

Party boats out of Rudee Inlet and small charter boats out of Lynnhaven have encountered decent numbers of black sea bass at the offshore wrecks like the Spring Chicken, 44 Fathom wreck and shallower wrecks closer to the Carolina coast like the Russian and Barque. If these wrecks are too far for your boat just give it a couple of weeks and the togs should be biting at the Chesapeake Light Tower, Triangle Wrecks and even inshore spots like the Cape Henry Wreck. Inshore boats are starting to go out and look for schools of Atlantic (or Boston) Mackeral with their fish finders. It would sure be nice to see a run of those like we had in the eighties. Five hooks and five fish on evry drop! Two anglers can fill a 48 quart cooler in an hour.

Freshwater fishermen throughout southeast Virginia and Northeast North Carolina are hoping for a good bite on Yellow Perch this weekend to coincide with the full moon. These fish are spawning at this time of year are a prime target for those hoping to wet a line on an unusually pleasant day in late winter or very early spring.

Now is the time to be tying rigs for the upcoming flounder season as well. Look for more information at Flukester.com on tying your own flounder rigs coming soon. And don't forget...
