Fall Fishing is upon us and we are starting to see some keeper stripers being caught around the structure. Nothing big yet but a few up to 32” caught on swimbaits 4” and 5” has been working the best. In the surf we have been seeing some small bluefish and some kingfish and a few skates and rays and occasional red drum too. It’s that time of the year for the big reds although we have not seen them in the numbers of the past few years. Smaller stripers have started showing up and with the colder weather should help push them down south.

From Capt. Walt the fall fishing in the shallows has picked up as of late. The stripers are chasing baits close to the Va/Md. line 40 plus fish days are common and they have been having some days of 80 plus fish casting artificials on light tackle. on points, sod banks, jetties, and submerged rocks. hooking up consistently to fish up to 24” aboard Capt. Walt’s Light Tackle Charters.
We just got back from Disney a few days ago it was a good trip after a long and busy Summer. Good to be back home 🙂
