    Default Poquoson Flats and Ware River 7/8-7/9

    Took the boat down to Poquoson Saturday morning to fish the flats. Been wanting to try out this area for years.

    I got on the water about 6am and spent the first couple hours throwing topwaters around the marsh banks. I caught several houndfish and C&R'd one 20" speck on a pink spook, but that was it for the surface bite.




    A while later I found a school of little specks popping in a creek and hooked a couple on jigs before leaving to look for bigger fish. As the sun came up I switched to a popping cork on the flats but all that caught was more houndfish. Really surprised I didn't catch some trout and reds out over the grass, cause man does it look good out there.

    By late morning the wind was really kicking up so I headed inside the Back River to look for puppy drum. I threw a spinnerbait along some pilings and immediately hooked into a very large cownose ray that snapped my 30lb braid like dental floss. Tied on another and eventually hooked into a fat lower slot red. That was my last bite and I headed in around 1:30.




    The wind forecast wasn't looking good for Poquoson on Sunday so I launched in the Ware River instead. I spent the whole morning fishing some beautiful grass but couldn't find the large trout I was hoping for. I did catch one little speck, several schoolie stripers, a bunch of croakers, a kingfish, and more houndfish. Most of the fish were caught jigging. I probably had a dozen bites on topwater but only hooked one small striper, not sure what the others were. The water was ridiculously warm, it ranged from 82-87 throughout the day. I can't wait to get back there when it cools down a bit, cause I'm sure that grass holds a lot of fish at times.

    was a little choppy there Friday as well i fished or should say tried to fish Friday. Then Saturday was a much nicer day spent most of it at the 2nd island fishing for spades and then chasing Cobia outside the bridge. Be back there the 21st i hope.

    Man I am dying to catch a big cobia. I always bring a larger spinning rod with a big bucktail just in case I see one when I'm out there.

    they were on the flat early this year beginning of June there were a ton there. You can still get them there just need to be on the outer edge of it.
