Red Drum caught near Marina jetties

Here is the picture of the 20" red drum caught by my brother in law
Mark Brown on my boat August 31 on squid. He caught it just outside
of the mouth of the marina to the right where the shell bed is. We
fish that bed quite a bit and it produces. We are still debating on
the boatel and it is always a pleasure speaking with you. Jay

Nice red drum

The big news again this summer around Garrett's Marina is red drum fishing. Anglers as far up the Rappahannock as Tappahannock are hauling in fish in the 18" to 26" range in abundance. Bottom rigs with squid or casting Gulp shrimp seem to be the most popular programs. Pictured here is Jr. captain Thompson holding two 20" reds.

Fishing update from Wes Blow

Striper season was less than great but I did catch my personal best.
A 52 pounder eeling at the CBBT at night of December 23rd. The next
day I took my wife Amy speck fishing and she caught her first ever
citation fish of any species a 25.5 release citation. I had some
really good speck days in December and January catching over 50 fish
several days. One day, a friend and I had about 60 fish and 25 were
over 21 inches. Many were speck citations all but one released this
season - one friend was just short of a release citation but a few
ounces over weight citation. Recently I have been tog fishing on a
friends bigger boat, I have not been able to get to the fish because
of the wind with my boat. I have caught a 13 pound tog and released a
25 incher for a citation that weighed 10 pounds on the boat scale.
Hoping to get out this Wednesday on my boat. I have about 356 hours
on it now..... Wes Blow
