I love to drive over the Lisner Bridge with my windows down. This way I can smell the salty sea breezes while I drive. And I always strain to see if I can identify birds working in the distance, no doubt feeding on small baitfish that hungry stripers or blues are pushing up from below. Below the bridge the Lynnhaven River, which ultimately feeds into Lynnhaven Bay and then becomes Lynnhaven Inlet, encompasses 64 square miles of saltwater and offers anglers more than 120 miles of shoreline.
Types of Fish: Lynnhaven offers anglers many choices, including stripers, bluefish, spot, speckled trout, flounder, croaker, and puppy drum. Known Baitfish Anglers fishing in and around Lynnhaven can expect to see shad, menhaden, shrimp, squid, crabs, a variety of small baitfish, and eels.
