Cobia have arrived in the bay in force. Fishing has been good for both chummers and sight fishermen. While cobia are getting most of the inshore buzz, red drum fishing remains excellent on the shoals at the mouth of the bay. Schools of big red drum are also being encountered by angler sight-fishing for cobia and by anglers trolling the oceanfront for Spanish mackerel.

Spanish mackerel are being caught along the oceanfront and have begun to move on into the bay. Some nice catches of spadefish have been made at the Chesapeake Light Tower and over some of the coastal wrecks. More are showing on structures inside the bay. “Nice” means by today’s standards, not the 9 and 10 pound spadefish we used to catch.

Some really nice sheepshead (by any standard) are being caught at the CBBT. Flounder are showing some promise this year. Fishing for them has not been great the past few years other than around the ocean wrecks. Catches were good on the seaside this spring and more are being caught in the bay so hopefully we will have a better summer.

Medium and small croaker seem to be plentiful in the rivers where some nice early spot are being caught. Speckled trout seem to have survived the winter freeze and decent numbers of puppy drum have been around.

Offshore action has gotten off to a late start. Tuna fishing has been good out of Oregon Inlet all spring but it took until June for the yellowfin to move closer to us. They are here now in range of Virginia Boats. Nice bigeye tuna are mixed with the yellofins. Offshore action should swiftly heat up now.
