Virginia Striper Fishing 'Rockfish'

Virginia stripers

Coastal Virginia Stripers

From May 1 through May 15, anglers are allowed to keep one striped bass per person measuring a minimum of 32 inches. From May 16 through June 15, possession limit is two fish between 18 and 28 inches, or one fish between 18 and 28 inches and one fish over 32 inches.

Smith Point

Situated at the uppermost portion of Virginia's western shore this peninsula is known as the Northern Neck. An ideal location to intercept post-spawn fish coming down the Potomac and Rappahannock rivers, as well as those leaving Maryland's bay waters.
Fish-holding structure includes shallow flats, sharp dropoffs and artificial reefs. Three rivers the Potomac, Great Wicomico and the Rappahannock feed baitfish into the bay.
The larger stripers are not holding in any particular area, so trolling is the preferred method for catching them during the first few weeks of May. Menhaden is the primary forage so its best to use lures that imitate the pogies like 6 to 9 inch paddle shads from storm lures. Shad bodies are often pulled behind umbrella rigs as well aswhite and chartrues bucktails or spoons. Early post-spawn arrivals to the Smith Point area are usually following the main shipping channel down the bay, and most can be found in the upper portion of the water column where the water is warmer. Troll the channel edges with menhaden imitations. A reciprocal license agreement between the two states allows Virginia anglers to fish the more productive nearby Maryland waters until the action moves south.

The Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel
Crosses the mouth of the James River to connect the cities of Hampton and Norfolk, is a popular location for intercepting stripers as they migrate in and out of the river during May and June. there is productive shoreline between the James and Back rivers.

The Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel
Connects Virginia's Eastern Shore with the mainland at Virginia Beach. An abundance of eddies, shoals, submerged boulders and the rips they create make the area a magnet for striped bass. Around the bridge-tunnels is the best place to work lures and plugs, especially the CBBT. Baitfish hold tight to the tons of rock and granite riprap and the thousands of concrete pilings.
