Two days after the swift exit of Hurricane Isaias (thank you, Jesus), schools of fish began filtering back into the creeks and channels surrounding Chincoteague. Beginning at the north end of the island in the Chincoteague Bay, the honey hole in front if the high school has had flounder action. Moving south in front of the Island Resort and under the draw bridge, you’ll work a little harder but some have been caught there. Good size croaker at the Town Fishing Pier as well as both sides of the Queen Sound bridge. Flounder also rewarding the angler at Queen Sound, who puts a 3 oz sinker on his rig to get the bait past the croaker to the flounder on the bottom. From Daisey’s Dockside to Buoy 17 almost in front of Capt. Bobs drifting for flounder has kept the charter boats busy - busy with not only Ole flattie but croaker & ribbonfish. But Croaker are just about everywhere. A few spot have been caught as well. In front of Mariners Point (the Cross) more flounder but less in the cooler because of the whiting n croaker on the bait first and that bite stays strong all the way past Buoy 11. Outside the Inlet, past Buoy 1, the Spanish Mackeral action is phenomenal with anglers maxing out in record time. Closer to Turners Lump that changes to big shark - hammers, great size inshore Coastals, too. Blackfish Banks ( the Subway Cars) has been congested with early morning fisherman cleaning up on Flounder, spades & triggers, traveling further east to the Little Wreck less congestion n more fish caught in less time. The Lumpy Bottom inviting Blue water enthusiasts to clean up on the gaffer Mahi that’s running there. Only report of a few yellowfin since the hurricane.

Surf fishing producing croaker,whiting/kingfish, sharks, dogfish & skates. Crabbing off the chain!! Big crabs!! Can’t keep chicken necks nor bunker in stock. COVID19?? People have been enjoying water related activities more this year especially fishing. Of course, the amazing diversity of fisheries that we have not seen in such abundance in many years has been such a big attraction. This summer has helped many people put aside worries and depression over COVID19. Thank you Jesus.
