I went to Anna Presidents weekend in 97. It can ice over in cold winters.
OVERVIEW: We at Anna Point Marina want to thank all of our friends and customers for their patronage throughout the year and we wish everyone a very happy holiday season. Please remember the less fortunate and those brave men and women in the military that are protecting our freedom. Hopefully they will be back with their families very soon. Have a safe and joyous holiday season and we wish everyone the best during this special time of year. Merry Christmas from Anna Point Marina .
BASS: Fish are moving to deeper areas now as we settle into winter patterns. Savvy early winter anglers are catching quality bass on suspending jerkbaits now, so dust off those Smithwick Rattlin’ Rogues!! Slowly worked bottom bouncing baits such as dark colored jig n pig combinations, 4 inch sassy shads and Yamamoto grubs are great cold water lures. This is a great time to catch a trophy Lake Anna bass so always be ready for a lunker!! Remember you can call 540 840 6772 for live, personal Lake Anna fishing report. Due to the bad weather there was no bass tournament on 12/14.The remaining winter bass tournament series dates are Sunday, December 21 and January 4,11,18. Tournament hours are from 7 am to 3 pm. Entry fee is $60.00 with a 100% payback. 5 fish limit. Call 540 840 6772 for more info.
STRIPERS: Striper action continues to be very good. Savvy cold weather anglers have been catching fish from the splits up to Stubb’s Bridge in the Pamunkey arm of the lake and from the splits up to the Route 719 Bridge in the North Anna arm of the lake. Jett’s Island and Rose Valley are specific hot spots at this time. Watch for flocks of birds to indicate feeding schools of fish. Be sure to approach active fish quietly using your trolling motor as you get within 100 yards of a feeding frenzy. Most fish are from18 to 24 inches with a few larger fish being caught deeper. Swim baits such the ever reliable 4 inch pearl sassy shad, Bass Assassin Sea Shads, Bucktails, and Storm Swim Shads are the best lures at this time. Also, for the deeper, bigger fish vertical jig a metal blade bait such as a ¾ ounce Silver Buddy or Riverside Ripper. Jumbo minnows are a great live bait choice if you are not set up to catch lake bait. Striper action can be fantastic so come on down and experience the thrill of a hard charging striper slamming your bait and hold on, it could be a big one.!!!
CRAPPIE: Die hard cold weather crappie anglers continue to catch a few quality fish using the ever reliable small minnow around bridge pilings
