FISHING TOURNAMENT THIS MONTH!!
Well November is here and the island is fairly quiet, oysters are being harvested, football is on TV, the island creamery doesn’t have a line a mile long, people are no longer wearing socks with their sandals, and anglers have the beach all to themselves. What an exciting time to visit Captain Steve’s and catch up on all the local fishing news as well as stock up on a great supply of fishing tackle. We have a fantastic selection of Penn Rod and Reel Combos as well as other brands like Daiwa, TICA, Saltiga, Shimano, Sea Striker, Wright & McGill, Abu Garcia, Star Rods, and more! Rods range in weight allowance from 3 oz – 14 oz and are up to 12ft tall. This is the time of year that sand spikes come in handy and we have the good old fashion PVC spike and several other aluminum varieties. Beach carts are sold here at Captain Steve’s and anyone that has dragged their fishing equipment through the sand can vouch to how convenient the carts are. The carts come in small and large with different tire styles and accessories.
Penn Battle I is on sale now at Captain Steve’s. We are making room for the Battle II that is also here at Captain Steve’s.
November 21st – 23rd is our 19th annual Rockfish Tournament off the Assateague Surf. No charge… just fun and prizes. Sign up here at Captain Steve’s when you arrive on the island. Look for sales on Rods and clothing apparel during our tournament.
The bayside is still consistently reporting good numbers of Rockfish in the area. The creeks and channels on the Chincoteague Side are producing Rockfish daily, but the sizes are smaller. Swim baits are most popular with anglers using Gulp, ZMan, Calcutta, Tsunami, Rapala, MirrOlure, Yo-Suri, Gotcha, and more. On the surf, anglers are using cut bait (Bunker, Mullet, and Spot) on East Coast High Low Rigs or Fish finder Rigs. Snapper Blues and Kingfish are scattered on the beach and biting best early morning or late evening. Red Drum are still scattered and anglers are having the best luck early morning and late evening on cut bait. The drive on is open. We expect to get some live eels in soon!!!
We look forward to seeing everyone soon at Captain Steve’s! Tight Lines.
