Special to the Cape Charles Mirror – Jim Baugh, local author and host of Jim Baugh Outdoors shows us a fascinating view of our pier that most of us will never see. We are very pleased to bring Jim’s unique and beautiful perspective about our life on the water. Always get the latest Jim Baugh Outdoors at his website.
Often when fishing, it is a good idea to know what is under you. This week in preparation for the upcoming Queen of the Bay Pier Fishing Tournament, we spent some time pre-fishing and filming underwater photography of the pier. We found abundant sea life and plenty of marine growth. This pier defiantly holds fish and some sections more than others.
We filmed schools of spot and pig fish and also what looked like a small cobia near the bottom. The surrounding area has multitudes of seagrass that holds lots of bait. The only thing that can stop you from catching fish here is a slack tide. Enjoy these pics of the under sea side of the Cape Charles Fishing Pier and we will film the upcoming tournament and feature it on our program. Tight Lines! Jim Baugh
