WEEKLY FISHING REPORT ENDING 5/21/21

The wonderful temps of the past week heated the waters up bringing in fish to our back bays. The scattered arrival of panfish will provide enjoyment for everyone of all ages. Who doesn’t like to fish for croaker and kingfish/whiting. Fake baits -the bloodworms type (GULP, FishBites) will attract these tasty (fish tacos - yeah!) swimmers. You’ll want to drift between buoys 14 to buoy 15 to find these fish and be patient since they are just beginning to saturate the waters. Also showing up more and more are the flounder as that migration begins to filtrate the channels and creeks. Silversides (shiners) & live minnows seem to be most popular right now to land a flattie AND cheaper than the usual Gulp and minnow combinations. Popular areas are the Four Mouths deep near Buoy 6, also the Chincoteague Channel between Beebe Road and Buoy 17 and a few from the Assateague channel near the mouth at Buoy 14. Striper mostly off the surf as well as black drum & huge ones too. Peelers, bunker, sand fleas have been used for the striper/rockfish while clams still a good staple for those behemoth drum. A mixture a panfish, skate also being caught in the surf. The crabbing is steady and you can catch enough for a good meal especially crab cakes or imperial.

Capt. Bob’s will have a Kid’s Kingfish Tournament July 2nd through July 11th. Heaviest kingfish/ whiting takes home $250 cash. Ages 5-15. Cookout after final weigh in on Sunday July 11th.
