This is my little blog to talk about my trips through the 757 and beyond at water level.

Riverines on the River
With close to 85 degree temps today I decided I would take a shot at the Hot Ditch. I gave Chesapeake Yachts a call and setup my parking pass with them and gave the river a shot. I have never fished the Elizabeth River or the Hot Ditch before. I really wanted to just get out on the water so I could scout it out a bit and see what was around before I took a trip out there at night. The water was actually pretty warm but the bugs were bad. didnt manage any fish but it was nice to get out and put the kayak back in the water. I hear night time is the time to go down there. Did get a good couple miles paddled. Hopefully that is a spot that I can turn into a more productive fishing ground this year.
Thinking a night trip maybe this weekend...maybe the bluefish will turn on at rudee? Who knows..stay tuned..
