I have a spot that served me well for the 13 years I was in Norfolk.

At the Norfolk end of the Hampton Roads tunnel/bridge in Oceanview,there is a jetty sticking out from the beach/seawall.Fish the end of it on a outgoing tide,throwing at the jetty and working a Gudgeon minnow with the tide on a slip sinker rig.Anchor out from the beach or climb out on the jetty like I did.

Tap tap tap ............Wham !!!

I saw that jetty the other day and said to my self that looks like a good flounder and red spot. Everyone around here is all about the bloodworm, they better be amazing seeing they are like $9 for something that looks like an earthworm but bleeds. I will stick to the same stuff that I've always caught flounder on.

@Robin, could I take the kayak is that spot or is the current? Just driving over I have seen some crazy currents around the bridge. I would at the minimum have to get a bigger anchor to hold me there.

Nathan,the water moves pretty good through there,thats why I said stay in from the beach.I used a 12' alum.boat and drifted through.I also just liked to climb out on the jetty and fish the end.Cast towards the bridge and let the minnow drift down till it's parallel to the beach, then slowly retrieve it in.Never caught anything but Flounder there.........just ALOT of them.

I haven't fished yet. I started unpacking my rods and reels and putting the reels on the rods. I'm buying a spot trap and a minnow trap from a local that makes them. Hope to put it out Friday night and let it soak and fish Saturday. He said the minnow trap catches the bull minnows well so we will see. I will update with a report.

@Robin I didn't get to make it out to your spot. I drove through the area but couldn't find out how to get down there. One part was fenced off. I see the area you are talking about when I come into Norfolk. I will figure it out eventually it just may be a long walk.
@FLSaloman Thanks for the like, I've already found a few people to fish with.
@Oscar I may hold off on the Hobie for now and buy a trident that is almost new for $700.

Nathan,it's been a long time.The strees on the bay side all go to the one nearest the beach.Get as close as you can and launch.The road deadends at the spot. Good luck,out going tide and Gudgeon minnows..........................
