Chinctoeague Fishing Report Striped Bass Trophy Season

It is that time of year again our Virginia Striped Bass Trophy Season starts today May 1st through May 15th go here and apply for the FREE permit

This allows you to keep a striped bass for the first 15 days of May and report it within 2 weeks.  The striped bass and black drum fishing is continuously getting better as we usually hit its peak in the middle of this month.  Make sure to vary your cast as a lot of times these fish come in close to feed.  We have in fresh bait consistently live peelers, fresh bunker, bloodworms, minnows etc..  Below are some of the recent catches from our Chincoteague Beach.  Enjoy !
