CHESAPEAKE BAY/OCEAN/

OUTER BANKS

Dr. Ken Neill III reports the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel and the Baltimore Channel have been productive for sight-fishing. The Inner Middle Grounds, York Spit and near buoy 18 have been good areas to anchor on a chum slick. On the Eastern Shore, a lot of tarpon are being seen and a few have been caught. The coastal shark population seems to be doing well. Various species seem to be here in abundance, and some inshore charters have targeted them with good success. Amberjack are a sure bet at the southern towers. They also are a possibility closer to home at structures such as the Chesapeake Light Tower, 4A Drydock and the Gulf Hustler. The offshore waters in the vicinity of the Norfolk Canyon have been producing nice catches of dolphin. There are a good number of billfish around, especially white marlin. Some wahoo are being caught.
