HRBT striper and york river

In the last week I haven't had the best of luck. Thursday night I decided to try to get some points for kayak wars by catching striper at the HRBT. It was a very slow night but i did manage to catch 15-20 striper. Only 6 of the striper were big enough for points, but at least I got some. I was so determined to get points I decided to stay out late... really late. I watch the sunrise then fished for another hour. The night ended with 15-20 striper up to 27", 2 small flounder, and a couple croaker. The drive home was rough, but I survived (though i don't remember most of it)

Yesterday I was hoping to catch some sheepshead or tautog in the york river but it was a disappointing day with only 2 croaker and one oystertoad. No pictures. Blah!

I WILL catch a sheepshead in the york one day!

  1. Dude, pleeeaaassseee take me under your wing and teach me how to get into some fishing out here, haha. I'm dying to catch some flounder, stripers, or speckled trout (catch/release most of the time). Been in VA Beach for 4 years (USMC) and finally am going to be stateside throughout this summer, fall, and winter - and I really want to capitalize on that by getting hardcore into fishing out here. Contact me if you'd be willing, haha. I own a kayak but I don't know if it's big enough for saltwater. I need some guidance! Either way, awesome blog, I've enjoyed checking it out.
