It has been a real oven here the last couple of days with temps at 100-105. It is either sit inside or be out on and in the water. I chose the water. Saturday I towed my jet ski to Rudee Inlet in Virginia Beach and ran 16 miles offshore to the Chesapeake Light Tower for some Spadefish. There were only a couple of boats there and the water visibility was decent at about 20 feet. The fish were very skitish and I only saw one caught on rod and reel. In the water they were also constantly on the run but I still managed to spear my four fish. I did not see anything other than spades. I was out from 1030-1530 hrs.
Today My wife and I dropped at Messick Boat Ramp in Poquoson Virginia and ran all along Grandview, Buckroe, Fort Monroe and around The Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel. We fished off of Hampton Bar and caught some spot, croaker and a small speckled trout using bottom rigs and fishbites--blood worms for bait.
Covered almost 60 miles this weekend and burned 15 gallons. Here are some pictures I took, the one of the water is a bunch of spadefish on the surface at the CLT.
