Question Spawning

Does anyone fish the lower Chesapeake around the Hampton/Newport News area?Do the big ones make it that far south or do they mostly hug the Eastern Shore?A friend has a 19footer and is not quite sure about going out to the Ches. tunnel.Any suggestions on where to fish for big ones around my area?Also where do stripers usually go for their spawning?Will they head up into any river or just the ones that turn Brackish or freshwater?
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

Last winter season we caught our limit and more every time we went out,mostly to the Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel.Most of what we caught was on live spot.Any other suggestions on bait and techniques with that bait would help also.

Thank You

Default Re: spawning


A quick search will take you to all the info your looking for concerning spawning. The other info isn't as obvious but can also be found looking through the Chesapeake threads.

Check this thread Highlight Spawning
and in particular the articles Created by Dr. Ed Donovan for Project Wild by the South Carolina DNR on spawning. The South Carolina Striped Bass: A Unique story
This article has the info your looking for and the water conditions necessary for a successful spawn.
