Yesterday morning I dropped my ski at Rudee Inlet in Virginia Beach and went about 16 miles offshore looking for some Tuna action and maybe some whale sightings. On the way out I went across a lot of bait marks that were only 2-3 miles off the beach.
I did not not see much in the area of the Chesapeake Light Tower so after 30 minutes I turned around and went right back inshore.
There were a lot of boats that were still going way East. Further than I wanted to go in the winter offshore on my pwc.
Glad I went back in, the bait was still there and very thick. The birds were going nuts diving in, an airshow I always love to see.
I caught four Dog Sharks, then a nice 40 inch Striped Bass. I caught two more dogs before the birds broke up and the catching slowed down.
Sometimes the grass is not always greener on the other side if the hill. Though I do not mind running some distance to find fish.
I do not know if anyone got into the tuna yesterday but I had a good time inshore chasing birds and bait. Saw a couple others catching before I went in at noon.
Here are a couple pictures from my trip.
