    Let me start with saying I love the james river. Me and a guy I work with put in at deep bottom. Bait was easy finally. Went down river to fish a few spots started off near the channel no luck. Went a little further down and decided to try to find somewhere new to fish. Anchored in about 10 foot and we caught one in about 5 min as soon as I put that pole back it hit again this time my friend reeled in a new pb of 56 pounds 47.5" he's hooked. Moved again no luck in about the same depth. I can't remember exactly where we caught them but we caught a 33 33 35 38 38 40 and a 60. Not all from one spot. He's definitely hooked. Pretty good day the wind was a little rough but too bad. Water temp was around 32-33 degrees. Like I said I love the james. I think that was the most citations I've boated in one trip. Can't wait untill next week. if I can figure it out ill post some pics.

    I would like to add myself to that list of new pb's but I haven't been able to in the last 2 years. Who knows maybe I will get in the 70's this year.
