Matador Charters Fishing Report


Thursday August 02nd 2012 - 15:00 AM EST
Added by: Jake Hiles

Over the alst couple days we have been seeing a red tide push in around the mouth of the bay and along the beach down towards the oceanfront to about rudee inlet. There is a very distinct change in pretty green inshore water and the dead areas around the red tide. The effect that the red tide has made is that it has pushed many of the fish that were lingering around the mouth of the bay into areas closer to rudee inlet. Over the last week, the fishing for spanish mackerel and bluefish has gotten tougher however, we are still seeing the sharks and we are seeing more cobias and red drum as they escape the red tide areas. We are seeing a lot of undersize rat cobias on the buoys, as well as a fleet of small boats checking the buoys every day. Those who can find cobias other ways than simply riding up to a buoy and hoping the 15 other boats that threw at that baby fish that day had a different bucktail are finding some better quality fish sightcasting out a couple miles off virginia beach. Flounder fishing continues to be good on the nearshore wrecks that have been untouched by the red tide. We caught this nice 50# cobia early on an am trip this week.
