Fishing Forecast: Week of July 29 to Aug. 4 HamptonRoads.com

 

White marlin action has been pretty good off the coast. The 21 boats fishing in the 14th annual Virginia Beach Invitational Marlin Tournament out of Rudee Inlet released 70, along with two sailfish and one blue marlin.

Bluewater trollers also are finding tuna, dolphin and a few wahoo. Norfolk Canyon deep-droppers can expect grouper, tilefish, rosefish and sea bass.

Also off the coast, amberjack are swarming around most navigational towers. They also can be found around many deep-water wrecks.

A good variety of shark can be expected to show, with mako often taking advantage of hooked fish being brought to the boat.
