Quantico MCB Lakes Fishing Reports

Recently shared catches and fishing spots

  1. 2 lb. 2 oz. Largemouth Bass with a zoom worm

  2. Quantico Creek/Bay on the other hand was shallow, weedy, hydrilla and spatterdock, and warm with high 70 degree stained waters the norm. We fished hard for bass ...more and snakehead in and around the spatterdock, mostly on high, outgoing tides in the morning, using top water Pop'R plugs and shallow running crank baits. We did OK with the bass, catching about a dozen or so over the two weekends...but nothing more than 3 pounds. We also caught a few snakeheads in the 3 to 6 pound range, so it's apparent that the Quantico Marine Corps Base "snakehead" tournament from a few weeks ago didn't get all of the snakeheads in the area. Of course we got very, very wet this morning with the long, slow rains, but it was still a good day to be out and about with friend and fish!

  3. Quantico Bay: Contributed by local angler Scott Torgerson. Well I tried some "new" and "old" fishing locations and partners these past two weekends. ...more Smith Lake is the "new" water with a new fishing buddy Carl and Quantico Creek/Bay on the Potomac is the "old" one with my good fishing buddy, John. Smith Lake is a small reservoir on the south side of Quantico Marine Corps Base on the edge of Stafford County. Access is via two boat ramps found on the Marine Corps Base, but also key is the fact boats are not allowed to use gasoline engines on the lake, electric motor or paddles only. It is a nice little reservoir with a good mix of steep banks, deep water, 25 to 40 feet, a fair amount of flooded timber, and two main reservoir branches fed by creeks with good 4to 8 foot channels. I found the water slightly stained last weekend and clearer this weekend, with water temperatures in the mid to high 70s. We fished mostly with shallow running crank baits and soft plastic worms, wacky and Texas rig styles, but also tried spinner baits and top water Pop'R plugs, catching lots of small bass between 1 to 2 pounds, a few nice bass in the 3 to 4 pound range, and even some Rock Bass, red eyes, yellow perch, and bluegills. It made for some nice action and a very enjoyable day on the water. Report courtesy of Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries.
