Default Fishing Cape Henry and Cape Charles.

We fished around Cape Charles and did not have any luck about two weeks ago. We heard later that as soon as we left the bite was on. 44 inchers were caught. Sometimes you just can't win.
We fished last week and caught a 30 incher and released it. No other bites we were at Cape Henry.
Wednesday of last week my son fished around Cape Henry and hooked up to four Stripers. Only one was brought aboard. The other three spit the bait out when it got close enough to the boat and they could see it. They hit Stretches and held them in their mouth all the way to the boat. The one they had on the boat really was not hooked. The bait just fell out of the mouth of the fish. Amazing when you consider they were treble hooks on the stretches. It was a 34 inch Striper and the other as far as they could tell were the same size or larger. They were caught on a chartreuse umbrella rig and black and white stretches. Here is a picture of the one we threw back.. They just stood there stunned at how small it was LOL.

yeah my cousin went out a couple weeks ago and had the same luck. He went out of cape charles as well. He said he had a couple of poles go down but instantly went slack. Figures it was small schoolies hitting and leaving. I don't think he's had a chance to get back out yet though.

The last time out they could tell they had some good size fish on when they got close to the boat before the fish let go of the bait. It still amazes me that they pulled in one. It really was not hooked. The stretch just fell out of its' mouth. All it had to do was let go.
