Yorktown for some Striper anyone 2/16->2/17? -Pic update-

Recommended Posts

Anyone up for it =D?

edit for more details:

Heading down saturday night 11ish, and fishing til morning.

The place is VERY lit, so it's not like fishing in total darkness.

Bring swimbaits  ;)

Simon,

I put some feelers out to see if I can convince Andy and Jay to drive down there with me.  I really prefer to make a long trip like this with a family member or friend.  Hopefully one of  them will want to go.

Simon,

Jay can't make it.  I am waiting to hear back from Andy and Ron (vaparrothead).  I still may make the drive myself even if I can't convince them to come.  Are you fishing the same place you did last time?  Do you have a street name or address so I can get directions via googlemaps?

@ron

I'll be fishing the same place as before, here the address

332 Water St Bldg L, Yorktown, VA

That's the address to the Ben and Jerry's there  :D

but googlemaps seems to put it right at the point where we fish, so ever better!

@Andrew

Come down! I'm not sure when Striper season ends but you gotta get some in before it does =D break the dry spell too! Maybe you'll catch a biggggg one =D

You're kidding, right? :-?

Striper season has been over since December 31. Any fish you catch now must be immediately returned to the water. Striper season doesn't open up again until spring.

It's OK to fish for stripers, but you can't keep any.

I meant more of a "til you can't catch them any more cause they've moved" kinda thing rather than to actually keep them.

Ahh, I haven't had any luck in the summer times at yorktown for striper, I do catch alot of croaker and some flounder though.  How do you shore fish for striper at yorktown in the summer times?

I guess the same way. I've always caught them by boat around the ends of the piers at night.
