June 2010

Fishing was good overall this month, Rockfishing was good, but not great. Early in the month live lining was excellent, then we had to work our butts off to find and catch rockfish. Most days with lots of effort we would capture our limit of Rockfish. The Croaker fishing was also good this month in the evenings, numbers were great and the size was ok.

On June 21, I headed south to target Cobia and Red Drum from VA Beach. This year we had a few good days and a few slow days fishing for these huge and awesome fighting fish. On our best afternoon trip we landed 11 huge red drum over 35 lbs and our best cobia trip was 5 keepers. All in all a good trip down south, with the exception of the last few days we were there, when cold water from the Ocean pushed into the mouth of the Bay and slowed the bite to a stop.

Looking forward to getting back down there next year to chase these fun fighting fish again.
