Lake Anna Striper Fishing

Lake Anna Striper Fishing - June
Trade your Happy Hour for an evening cruising Lake Anna, watching the sunset, and putting a few fillets in the cooler.  Fishing 6 - dark will often capture the most aggressive feeding while missing the hottest part of the day.  Striper fishing is excellent this time of year and its a wonderful way to unwind after a day at work.  Fun for the whole family this is a kid friendly adventure.  Send an e-mail to Taylor@cvofishing.com to book your trip today.  Mention the CVO blog and you can add a third person for no additional charge.

Dynamite Net Job - What Not To Do

See if you can spot all of the things you shouldn't do while trying to land a Striped Bass on relatively light tackle. 1st - Don't try to swoop a green fish that is coming straight at you as he will get a great view of the net. 2nd - Don't drop the fish out of the net once you have him in it.  3rd - Don't allow a fish to get near the outboard / try to land the fish on the side of the boat rather than behind.  A couple of things were done correctly.  1st - nobody got hurt.  2nd - The fish did eventually end up in the boat.  3rd - Everyone had a blast.  Fishing has really been good this week.  Half day trips are a great way to do a little fishing while we work through the hottest weeks of summer.  Full day trips can be broken into a morning and evening session.  E-mail Taylor@cvofishing.com to book your trip today.

Lake Anna Striper Fishing

Lake Anna Striper Fishing in June
Spitting rain in the morning followed by downpours in the afternoon couldn't spoil the mood onboard today.  Steady action for most of the day with just a few quiet stretches.  Caught a bunch of fish and kept these three beauties for the grill.  Found a healthy school of fish down lake in 35' of water that provided tight lines and good entertainment.  Live bait fishing continues to be very productive however the evening trolling is beginning to heat up.  Week days are especially good with little boat traffic to contend with.
