Since the big trip to Harker’s Island, I had only made it out fishing once. I’ve started to set my sites on the striped bass, and with that in mind, I’ve been searching for potential habitat. Here in Norfolk, the tasty water tends to be out of reach when wading. I’ve been told I’ll be settling for smaller fish if I insist on wade fishing with the fly rod. I have to say, so far, I’m fine with that.
Here are some photos from a recent walk (no fish caught) along with some other shots. It was a gorgeous night exploring Willoughby Spit near the base of the Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel.
My buddy Kevin and I went down to Harker’s again on Monday. It was a last minute decision. No big fish, but it was a wonderful day. So very relaxing.
Next up, I think I’m looking at some night fishing. Apparently the stripers like water with lights. They ambush schools of bait fish drawn to the lights.
