Blue Run?

3 posts in this topic

Im somewhat new to the area and was wondering if virginia beach area has much of a Bluefish run around november or so? I've fished the running blues in NC before but never have tried or heard much in VA about it.

The big ones used to run the beaches here like they did down south but now it seems that when they get over 2-5 lbs. they stay offshore. I'm thinking it's due to the lack of Menhaden and other high quality forage in the near-shore waters.

The big Choppers are running right now 20-30 out on their way south for the winter and the little Taylors are inshore evrywhere. I've caught them up to 30" at the Lynnhaven mixed into schools of Rockfish the same size but that was 3-4 yrs. ago.

Throw out some fresh mullet and the specks and blues will be a biting.
