The ones that were trailing I felt like I jigged enough to entice a bite. Clearly not. Thinking that's a good cooler sticker "#JIGHARDER"

Went 3/5 yesterday chumming, biggest was 46Ē the two we missed were cruising the slick and had lockjaw. Filled the box with Spanish on the way in, had double and triple hookups around the York Spit Tower.

Went 3/4 this morning before the rain set in and we headed for the dock. Largest in the boat was 43Ē. Lost another, larger at the boat due to mates poor hook tying skills. A few throw backs, 25-30Ē range.

Yes. We got about 5 hours in. All hit on the incoming tide down on the bottom.

I may have a bit of time tomorrow to fish, Iíve been catching some decent fish at the Spit, but Iíd like to get into some numbers though donít care about size. Is it better to fish Stingray or the Spit?

I agree. There are a lot of great spots on the western side, you just have to put the time in. Most of the time Iím at Windmill to Hole in the Wall. Some days Iíll run down to Cape Charles. Itís hit or miss each time.

All great info, I have a slip near Gwynnís Island so I generally fish those same areas (Windmill and Stingray) but this time of year I will trailer to the either the other side of Mathews County, Rudee, or OI. Today ran back out to York Spit and caught a pair of rats in an hour and a half on the chum pot, one bigger fish waked our freelined croaker but didnít eat, caught 10 or so Spanish for lunch and headed in.

Were you chumming? Eels on the bottom or chunk bait?

Nice work. I never have any luck with Cobia. Eels, live croaker, chum pot on the bottom, they don't like me for some reason. I may give it another try over the 4th. Have to find another spot besides windmill though, it will be a parking lot. Might try bluff point or run across the bay.

Across the bay will be ever worse, this time of year Lattimer gets to be a parking lot even on week days... look at at chart and find a sharp drop off from 10-14 ft down to preferable 30+ft there are plenty of shoals to target the named ones just get fished much harder.

Hoping to launch from Wallace’s Saturday. Will be in the tower. Would you guys make a right and start looking down towards grandview/buckroe area or turn left and head towards York spit? Just don’t get many chances to get out these days. So any advice would be greatly appreciated. Good luck to all headed out this weekend!!

I typically use two chum bags. One up top and one on the bottom. Same with the eels. 2-3 up top on floaters and 2-3 on the bottom.

If it was me I'd head straight out to where the York channel meets the Baltimore channel. I imagine with all this weather we've had over the last week, the water on the western side of Bay is going to be dirty and not good for sight fishing. Good luck. I'll be out in the afternoon.

Yes it is. We're not leaving until late morning so we'll be able to see how far off the weatherman is. If it's nice we'll be north of there or maybe off Cape Charles.
