Fishing Report Week Ending Sept. 4

The waters on both sides of Queen Sound Channel still a good place for flounder, croaker, spot and speckled trout using bloodworms, minnows paired/white gulp swimming mullet, or squid and shrimp. This mix also being caught in the Chincoteague Channel in front of Capt. Bob’s Marina north to the drawbridge. A big run on shrimp with anglers reporting that flounder, small sheepshead, croaker, kingfish/whiting and undersized seabass are being caught around the Inlet this past week as well as speckled trout, spot and sharks. The Assateague Channel pretty much the same throwing into the mix ribbonfish. Surf/Assateague Beach striper aka(rockfish) , pompano, kingfish, Sharks and red drum being caught using clams, squid, bloods and bunker.

Going into the ocean when those riptides n waves settled down, the Subway Cars aka Blackfish Banks slacked up but a few fish were still landed - spades, triggers, sheepshead, baby Cobia, a few flounder n small sea bass. Due to sea conditions from Hurricane Ida no reports of offshore fishing.

Last but not least - crabbing. What an awesome year for these crustaceans. EVERYBODY wants crabs and this season has not been a disappoint. If you’ve tried crabbing and didn’t catch any, then you don’t know how to crab - what’s the best baits, when and where to crab (tides, handlines vs pots, etc). Cuz ya know - it truly is an art. A learned technique. And the proof is in the pudding as the Ole timers use to say. If you have a good ‘haul’ of crabs for dinner - then you know what you’re doing. If you haven’t got a clue - hit us up. We’ll share our knowledge with ya. A fun day crabbing, a satisfying dinner pickin em and making memories n laughing about the ‘days catch’ n how much fun you had catching em. Sometimes even revenge when steaming em especially if one bit you. LOL!!

That’s a wrap for this week. We’re hanging on to these last weeks of summer. It’s always so hard to see it come to an end. But we’re hoping for another 5-7 weeks. As long as the fish are here, it’s all good.

The Price family from Arlington, VA, fished the Subway Cars and came back with this nice haul using clams and cleaned squid.
