Boat Storage



High Point Marina offers several different types of storage. Traditionally, land and wet storage provides the customer the convenience of storing his boat in or near the water. However, The Valet  provides a more luxurious approach. An all-indoor facility, The Valet protects your boat and equipment from the elements, thus adding years of life. More importantly, we do all the work! All you do is show up and enjoy the lake. In most cases we can launch and retrieve in less than three minutes!

Fishing Report


McCotter’s Lake Anna Guide Service Fishing Report

Mid-November
Overview - As Lake Anna cools to more seasonal temperatures, anglers can expect to encounter roaming schools of feeding fish throughout the lake. Water temperatures are dropping into the 50s from the mid to low 60s and that means striper, wiper, bass, white perch, crappie, even catfish are schooled up and feeding heavily at times. The key to finding these schools of fish is two-fold: 1) locating the hot zone of baitfish and gamefish and 2) watching birds. Here’s what you can expect for a November visit:

Largemouth Bass
Up lake bass are leaving willow grass lines and beginning to follow schools of threadfin and gizzard shad on their annual down lake migration. Most of the better action is still coming off main lake points early in the morning where bass ambush shad and will take a spinnerbait. Later in the day, the fish move deeper to rock ledges and brush and can be pursued with crankbaits, suspending jerkbaits, even blade baits and fluttered spoons. The fish will return shallow again in the evening for a brief feed on the points. Mid lake bass tend to school in creeks due to clearer water. Using swimbaits, hard and soft plastic swimbaits can be effective when fish and bait are in the area. Keep in mind the schools of bass are moving throughout the day, so if your depth finder shows fish in 28-32 of water at the mouth of a creek where you caught them shallow in the morning, don’t doubt it. If you cannot find any fish, just pitch a shaky head worm to docks in the first third of creeks. Down lake bass fishing is bait dependent. Creeks like Sturgeon, Beaver Pond, Dukes and Rockland often have bass feeding on bait that can be targeted with everything from small crankbaits to swimsuits, jerkbaits to spoons. Docks will hold fish once the water hits 55 down lake later in the year. The Dike 3 region has yet to turn on consistently as the herring are not there.

Striper and Wiper
Good fish is available now for Lake Anna’s striped fish, mostly in the up lake region. The fish have been holding at The Splits, Rose Valley and the State Park Beach area for the past two months, but many are now beginning to migrate up lake toward baitfish coming down lake. Look for the best concentrations from Rose Valley up to around the Harris Bridge (fish should be at the mouth of Duck In Hole but are not yet) in the North Anna side and from the mouth of Plentiful Creek up to the mouth of Terry’s Run in the Pamunkey Branch. Some fish might remain in The Splits region, too. Don’t overlook Contrary Creek either as we approach Thanksgiving and early December. You can also often catch white perch in the same areas when the striper won’t bite. The Capt. Mack’s Super Spoon is deadly on all three and a Crazy Blade is a lot of fun to fish for perch.

Crappie
Fish are schooled around docks and bridge pilings near the main river channel. Brush piles are good, too, if you can find one that hasn’t been fished too often. Up lake rock piles can hold fish until the water drops below 50. Two-inch jigs on 1/32-oz. jig heads and small minnows on slip bobbers are best.

Good luck and Happy Thanksgiving.
 
 
 

LATE OCTOBER


Get ready for a stunning blaze of color around Lake Anna in the coming weeks and a blazing transition of fishing patterns. Bass, striper, wiper and crappie have begun to switch from summer to fall patterns with water temperatures now in the low to mid 70’s. Water temperatures should drop into the 60’s later this month, triggering the start of the baitfish migration. Here’s what you can expect on your visit.

   Fish the lake sections differently to better understand the keys to success. Down lake bass are schooled over humps and around points. Use small topwaters, three-inch swimbaits (Berkley Rippleshad) and small, soft plastic jerkbaits when you detect schooling action.

  At some point these bass will head to the backs of the bigger down lake creeks, following the bait.

  Many mid lake bass are still in summer schools and frequenting vertical structure like channel drops and points. Some movement into creeks like Beaver Pond, Sturgeon, Pigeon, Mitchell and Marshall.  Afternoon action will soon be best.

  Fish fast with small crankbaits, a small Tiger Shad spinnerbait and a small swimbait. Some bass are locating on docks and can be targeted using a shaky head worm.

  Up lake bass are can be found feeding in the shallows along willow grass lines in the upper North Anna and around rocky channel bends in the upper Pamunkey Branch. Push into the headwaters of each and Terry’s Run and fish shallower and you might find some big schoolies on big shad.

  Otherwise, toss a spinnerbait and small crankbait when they are biting along the grass and a creature bait or jig to entice them when they are not.

   Striped bass are ravenous now when you can find them active. Schools are in all three sections of the lake with the down lake and mid lake sections the most reliable but often with smaller fish.

   Up lake striper fishing can be outstanding in the evenings but the feed is unreliable.

  Better fishing awaits for crappie anglers  as the water dips below 70 degrees. There are some 10-15”+ slabs beginning to feed now in the upper section of the lake. Docks, rocks and brush are where you’ll find the schools. Bridge pilings are beginning to draw them as well. Two-inch jigs and slip bobbers with small minnows are best.

EARLY OCTOBER
 

Largemouth Bass – Up lake region continues to produce the best catches. This area has plenty of willow grass, rocks, docks and stumps, especially above the first two bridges in both the North Anna arm and Pamunkey Branch.  Pitch small plastic worms to docks (4” Berkley Power worms) and jig as it falls. A ¼ oz. Tiger Shad spinnerbait in the Lake Anna Special format is excellent for these areas as well, retrieved around docks and grass. This is also a great time of year for lip-less crank baits such as Rat-L-Traps.   Mid lake bass are moving to the backs of creeks like Marshall, Pigeon, Mitchell, Sturgeon and Contrary. Each will have fish in them somewhere.  Use the same patterns as up lake fish including suspending jerkbaits, soft plastic jerkbaits, and swimbaits.  Some topwater action on Pop Rs and buzzbaits.
Striped Bass - There are fish breaking just about every morning in all three sections of the lake. Have a small topwater you can walk tied on and keep your eyes peeled. (Zara Spooks or Chugbugs).  Birds are beginning to show up,  but they are  not much help yet. Fishing has been slow, however, fish have been caught in the splits area most evenings.  Most anglers are using live bait, Sassy shads, sea shads, and  spoons. 

Crappie – Lots of fish around bridges and docks, as long as you stay in at least 10-15’ of water.  Small and medium minnows and 2” grubs are working the best.
Water temps mid to upper 70’s


LATE SEPTEMBER

Gordon and Florence have added much water to the lake but conditions are pretty good.  Stained at the upper end with very little mud.  Naturally we are at full pool with heavy water flow over the dam.  Water temps in the mid to upper 70’s.

Largemouth Bass - Target the up lake region for the best catches. This region offers you plenty of shoreline structure in the form of willow grass lines, rocks, docks and stumps, especially above the first two bridges in both the North Anna arm and Pamunkey Branch. Pitching small plastic worms to docks has been the go-to pattern right now. You might be able to visit the flats in the extreme upper end of both tributaries and some of the smaller tributaries and find bass feeding on threadfin shad as long as the water is not muddy.  The 1/8-oz. Tiger Shad spinnerbait in the Lake Anna Special format is excellent for these skinny water areas as well as retrieved around docks and grass. If you cannot get them to take the spinnerbait, go to the worm and work docks and rocks in grass more thoroughly. Mid lake bass are moving to the backs of creeks like Marshall, Pigeon, Mitchell, Sturgeon and Contrary. Each will have fish in them somewhere, it's up to you be there early and leave late to bump into them. A big topwater you can "walk" is also good.

 

Striped Bass - There are fish breaking just about every morning in all three sections of the lake. Have a small topwater you can walk tied on and keep your eyes peeled. (Zara Spooks or Chug Bugs).  Birds are beginning to show, but they are on tiny threadfin, mostly, and not much help yet. Hotspots have been the Stubbs Bridge region, around Sunning Island, the mouth of Sturgeon Creek, the mouth of Duke's Creek and near Dike III. September striper are mostly skinny, however, there are bigger fish to be caught this month, even among the little ones breaking. Be on the water at dawn and dusk and in the striper hunting mode for the best part of the day. You can also venture way up into the upper portions of the lake and use swimbaits for bigger fish feeding on gizzard shad in shallow water. Bigger fish will begin to bite better by the end of the month when water temperatures stabilize.

 

Crappie - We went from poor to good very quickly here as the specks responded to cooler water. Just about all of the docks in the upper Pamunkey are worth trying as long as they have 10' of water on them. Slip bobbers and minnows set at 5-8' are deadly. You can also use six-pound test and a one-inch jig under and around docks. The up lake bridges are good now, too.

 Early Hot September

   STRIPERS:  The hot weather has broken up the schools, sent the fish deep and holding in cooler waters.   They are not very active and will not chase baits.  Anglers have to get their baits right in front of them.   Troll Redfins, Manns, and XPS  or jigging spoons are producing some fish.  Also downline live bait.   Occasionally in low light times of the day smaller Stripers will chase bait to the surface where top water baits like Spooks, Pencil Poppers and Pop R’s attract vicious strikes. Stripers are moving into the current at the third dike and will also feed on the top water baits well. As the fish move into the backs of creeks swim baits work well especially the Sea Shad and Sassy Shad worked on 3/8 to ½ oz heads.
   BASS : The bass are still relating to deeper structures where bait is present still in a summer pattern. Mainlake points, humps, roadbeds,  brush and rock piles and bridges hold the bass now with numerous techniques catching fish. Deep diving crankbaits are working well along with jigs tipped with worms. Topwater baits will also catch nice bass in low light times of the day.

   CRAPPIE: Plenty of Crappie holding on all the bridge pilings uplake and on brush piles in 10 to 20 feet of water. Very nice Crappie are being caught on docks that have lights on them at night. Uplake the Crappie are moving back up under shallower docks with structure or brush under the docks.

   CATFISH: The Cats love this water temperature and can be caught basically everywhere there is bait present. Work areas less than 25 feet deep and use your favorite bait. Live bait has been producing some larger than normal Catfish fished near the bottom over 25 foot flats.

Water temps upper 80’s

 

Thanks

Carlos


AUGUST
 

   STRIPERS:  Summer patterns will continue through this month with plenty of schools roaming the main lake regions of the lake. As soon as the nights begin to cool there will be a bait migration to the backs of the creeks and the Stripers will turn on in very shallow water.  Your depth finder will be the key in locating the schools which are holding primarily over 25 to 35 foot flats. Anglers are trolling deep diving Redfins, DD-22’s and Manns Stretch 20.  Occasionally in low light times of the day smaller Stripers will chase bait to the surface where top water baits like Spooks, Pencil Poppers and Pop R’s attract vicious strikes. Stripers are moving into the current at the third dike and will also feed on the top water baits well. As the fish move into the backs of creeks swim baits work well especially the Sea Shad and Sassy Shad worked on 3/8 to ½ oz heads. Top water Redfins also will take the larger Stripers waked across the surface.
  Still the best catches have been and will continue to come on live bait. Stripers are feeding heavily on Herring when they are schooled and it is not uncommon to take a couple hundred hit’s a morning fishing Herring on downlines. When the fish feed shallower Gizzard Shad pulled behind Water Bugz planner boards will produce the larger fish this month. When the dog days of August prove challenging to artificial bait fisherman switching over to live bait usually puts fish in the boat.
   BASS : The bass are still relating to deeper structures where bait is present still in a summer pattern. Mainlake points, humps, roadbeds,  brush and rock piles and bridges hold the bass now with numerous techniques catching fish. Deep diving crankbaits are working well along with jigs tipped with worms. Bass are being caught on the top of roadbeds in 22' of water [208 bridge], on 20' ledges in Rose Valley, on top in the mouth of Contrary over schools of small Threadfin Shad,  over the older fish structures that were  put into the lake years ago, and all the uplake  bridges. Marina docks are also holding nice Bass. Towards the later part of the month the Bass can be caught in the back of the creeks on humps, roadbeds, rocks and ledges and the fish will move extremely shallow up the rivers and uplake creeks. Small shallow running crankbaits worked near stumps next to the shallow channels will put nice fish in the boat. Topwater baits will also catch nice bass in low light times of the day.

   CRAPPIE: Plenty of Crappie holding on all the bridge pilings uplake and on brush piles in 10 to 20 feet of water. Very nice Crappie are being caught on docks that have lights on them at night. Uplake the Crappie are moving back up under shallower docks with structure or brush under the docks.

   CATFISH: The Cats love this water temperature and can be caught basically everywhere there is bait present. Work areas less than 25 feet deep and use your favorite bait. Live bait has been producing some larger than normal Catfish fished near the bottom over 25 foot flats.

JULY

 


 

   STRIPERS:  Summer patterns  continue  with plenty of schools roaming the main lake regions.  Your depth finder will be the key in locating the schools which are holding primarily over 25 to 35 foot flats. Anglers trolling deep diving Redfins, DD-22, umbrella rigs, or other trolling baits are catching plenty of fish.  Occasionally in low light times of the day smaller Stripers will chase bait to the surface where top water baits like Spooks, Pencil Poppers and Pop R’s attract vicious strikes. Top water Redfins also will take the larger Stripers waked across the surface.
  Still some of the best catches have been on live bait. Stripers are feeding heavily on Herring .
   BASS : The bass are still relating to deeper structures where bait is present still in a summer pattern, however,  with cooler temps this week the fish have been roaming and coming up in the shallows.   Mainlake points, humps, roadbeds,  brush and rock piles and bridges hold the bass now with numerous techniques catching fish. Deep diving crankbaits are working well along with jigs tipped with worms. Bass are being caught on the top of roadbeds, ledges, and other structures.  Marina docks are also holding nice Bass. Small shallow running crankbaits worked near stumps next to the shallow channels will put nice fish in the boat. Topwater baits will also catch nice bass in low light times of the day.

   CRAPPIE: Plenty of Crappie holding on all the bridge pilings uplake and on brush piles in 10 to 20 feet of water. Very nice Crappie are being caught on docks that have lights on them at night. Uplake the Crappie are moving back up under shallower docks with structure or brush under the docks.

   CATFISH: The Cats love this water temperature and can be caught basically everywhere there is bait present. Work areas less than 25 feet deep and use your favorite bait. Live bait has been producing some larger than normal Catfish fished near the bottom over 25 foot flats.
