Virginia Beach Striper Fishing Report

11/28 - On saturday, we had Lennie Miles aboard for a day of striper fishing. Lennie has undoubtedly been the hardest customer I have ever had to get on the water. He has booked me 8 different days over the last two months and EVERY single time, there was bad weather and we were unable to fish. Yesterday turned out to be the day though and we were locked, loaded, and ready to go. We had to cancel friday's trip with Tommy Potts because of high winds, and even though there were high winds forecasted in the morning, we decided to go out and give it a shot. We started out eeling on the east side of the high rise where we were sheltered from the high waves. The wind was pushing too hard though and we could not catch a striper on eels if we are drifting three knots against the current. Next, we went to fish around the islands with jigs. The islands blocked the wind completely and Lennie and his crew took the time to learn how to use the fishing gear and caught a couple schoolie stripers while the wind laid down and the tide got right. When the outgoing tide came around and the rockfish began to bite, Lennie and the boys were ready. The wind had laid down, the seas had subsided, and we moved over to work the pilings. When we got there, we found a hot bite. Birds working under bait with schoolies working and popping the surface. Nothing big, but plenty of fish. Everyone got to catch a couple on light tackle. We put a limit in the box and released some for fun. Even though the schoolies arent the biggest fish ever, everyone has a blast catching them. Late in the afternoon, we got word that there had been a very few fish caught on eels up north, so we decided to finish out the day up there with a couple of drifts to see if we couldnt get a big one. We didnt have any bites, but the important thing is that there were a couple big cow stripers caught on eels. Each day now through mid january or so, the eel fishing will get better and better each day. We look forward to eel fishing for stripers all year long and the time is finally here. Thanks again to Lennie. I am glad that I could FINALLY get you on the water. I enjoyed having you aboard and look forward to getting you out there again.
