It’s been a busy time of year and we have been having a couple of computer problems which are currently being fixed. We had a successful kids croaker tournament which just ended on Sunday with a party which concluded on Sunday afternoon. Thanks to all our sponsors Penn, Famous Pizza, WCTG 96.5, and American Fishing Wire. I’ll be putting reports up to date as we are getting a new computer. I have been keeping up with the reports on our FACEBOOK page. I know a lot of our customers are still not on facebook but the link is https://www.facebook.com/pages/Captain-Steves-Bait-and-Tackle/229211027101676?ref=hl I look forward to getting everything back up to date and seeing everyone. It is a good time to come to Chincoteague as the Summer season is wrapping up our better Fall fishing starts. We have had some oversized red drum caught in the surf already and it generally hits is peak in September to October. The wreck fishing continues to be good. Just a few days ago I got a chance to go our with Capt. John, Brian, and Darryl we ended up with 53 keeper seabass and a couple of flounder. In the bay croaker action has been pretty good our tournament winner came in on Sunday caught off the new pier in the downtown of Chincoteague.

Team Pilgrim strikes again with Capt. Steve Shoemaker and first mate Theresa’s big mahi Biggest Mahi we ever weighed in a 50#er came in 2 days ago. Some 40 plus pound bluefin tuna and a few yellowfin mixed in. We have butterfish, sardines, and Ballyhoo and the blue and white islanders have been the ticket here lately. Inshore wrecks are producing some nice flounder some spadefish and triggers; keep you eyes out for some cobia out there too. Inshore the croaker fishing has picked up with some croaker up to 14 inches. Still a lot of smaller ones but if you pick through them you can get a pretty good meal. Kingfish around the inlet and the surf has been slow here of late. Sharks and Rays have been providing some pullage for the surf anglers. Our blue crabs are really heavy right now and a lot of people are taking advantage of our crabbing special 4 handlines a net and bait for $15.99. We are lucky to have some good weather and good friends who have brought in some nice seabass, mahi mahi, and tuna loins. Swing on in and let o0ur family help you get hooked up! Tight Lines!
Fishing offshore has really taken off here lately. The 20 to 30 fathom line there are bluefin tuna and some big mahi mahi. The tuna hole has yellowfin tuna and some bigeye. Trolling ballyhoo and chunking butters have been producing remember blue and white is always a good color for bluefin tuna. One of the Capt. secret weapon has been a cedar plug daisy chain. The inshore wrecks have had some great flounder action. Make sure to take a lot of bait and rigs. Inshore action the flounder bite has been hit and miss. The good ne3ws is that some of the bigger croaker have arrived. I’ll have a lot of pictures to post here shortly. Remember on the surf the big biters are out there. Some of the late night surfcasters have been hooking up with some nice sized biters for our big fish Summer action.
