Skunked

Postby Junebug » Wed Jun 08, 2011 4:28 pm

A friend of mine and I tried the Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel Monday night. We got there on the end of the ebb and waited until the flood was running good. We finally left around 10:15 with nothing to show for our efforts. My friend did get the tail bit off of a Storm shad, and I felt a short bite on my glass minnow fly, but no hookups. There did not appear to be any bait under the lights, as the small terns ? wern't having any luck either.

Where da fish? :?: :(

Saw lots of bait near the beach at HRBT on Monday afternoon. Though no fish near it.

There seems to be a lot of bait moving around up my way around the P. flats. Fellow came into Backriver Out. and weighed some nice specs he said he caught on copper penny colored plastics.

Cheers,

Chris

Joe, sorry to hear about the skunk.

ChrisB,

We need to get out there some evening and give it a shot. Can you get off early enough to give it a shot? Tomorrow night (Wed.) looks like the only chance for me until next week. I'm going to the Chic Friday morning -coming back Sunday.

Good to hear some specks are hanging on the flats. Usually a crack o dawn bite so may need to hit that next outing.

Hey Joe,

Probably not going to happen this week. Are we still on for supper tomorrow night before the VCFA meeting? I'll call you Thurs.

Cheers,

Chris
