Lake Anna Fishing Report by Chris Craft November 2014


Anna Point Marina/Fish Tales has once again started their Annual Big Fish Contest. They will be giving away either $100 or a yearly ramp pass ($125 VALUE) to the angler that catches the largest bass, crappie and striper for the month.
1- Must launch from Anna Point Marina and
fish must be caught during regular business
business hours.
2- If you are fishing with an employee or guide,
you must pay the $8 ramp fee BEFORE your
3- Tournament Caught fish are eligible,
however, they must be weighed on our
porch scales.
4- Artificial and Live bait is allowed.
BASS- Full Blown fall fishing is here! The bass are shallow and aggressive! Squarebill Crankbaits, Lipless Crankbaits, Spinnerbaits, Jig & Pig Combinations and even Top Water Baits will put fish in the boat for you. Look for fish to be on the hard cover “ROCKS” all month long!
They can be found from 2 feet all the way to 20 feet of water.
Look for them to be shallow most of the day, but on extreme clear days or just after a cold front, you need to slow down and go a little deeper. Main lake point with rocks will produce fish by dragging a 1/2 ounce Arson Arky Head Jig with A Deep Creek Lures Katie Bug as the trailer! This Combo has prooved to be deadly for me on early winter/late fall BIG MOUTH! When you find these fish schooled up in deep open water, do not overlook the Toothache Spoon or Damiki Vault Blade Bait!!!
Another one of my favorite ways to catch these fish is with a 1/4oz Scrounger Longbill rigged with a Damiki Armor Shad! Be sure to maintain bottom contact with this bait. Sometimes it is hard to tell the difference between a strike and the cover you are bumping into, with this being said……you will need to set the hook on just about everything that feels out of the ordinary. Most fish just load up the rod!!!!!!!
STRIPER- The linesides are making their move up into the rivers early this month. Look for them to be chasing shad and herring early and late in the day. A 4″ Damiki Anchovy Shad paddletail swimbait rigged on a 1/4oz jig head is my bait of choice. Start looking for birds to give locations of the fish away. Be respectful of other anglers already fishing in an area, do not run all the way into them with the big engine, this will spook the fish and then you will be dealing with an angry angler!!! Once the heavy feed has ceased, locate them on your electronics and drop a Toothache Spoon or Damiki Vault Blade Bait down to them.
You should be able to find them around the bridge in Terrys Run, the S-Turns to Little Florida in Pamunkey and around the 522 Bridge to the mouth of Goldmine Creek over on the North Anna arm of the lake. They should stay put in these areas all the way through November or until the water cools down to below 40 degrees or so.
CRAPPIE- The Specks are still located on bridge pilings, but a lot of them have made their push to the boat docks. They will stay there until the water temps drop into the upper 40’s. Small minnows rigged on slip bobbers and 2″ Kalin Curly Tail Grub on a 1/16oz jig head will give you the best results.
