    I was planning on trying some new spots today, so I decided to call Josh (jpritch) and see if he would like to go blue chasing. I know he hadnt been on the river in awhile, so I called him. He arrived at my house around 6am and we decided to fish the lower James today. We put in at hopewell and figured the creeks would harbor us from the wind. Well we were so wrong, until the tide changed then the party was on. We really didnt even start fishing untill 11am and finished around 330 pm. We ended up with 10 fish... a 39, 3- 38's, a 30, and 5 fish from 20-25 lbs . Over all not a bad day considering the wind. Bait was real easy, one set of the net and we had around 24 cutters, 3 huge crappie, and a 20lb catfish. Cant complain when its that easy to get bait. We really enjoyed the day, alot of action, easy bait, and good company. I was glad I could put Josh on some good action today. I enjoyed his company and showed him some spots for future fishing.... 02-16-08.jpg

    Thanks for the report and the pics :cool2:. Congratulations on a great day on the water. One of these days I'm going to have to take a vacation and get up that way to do some fishing.

    I was going to fool around with my boat today, work on a storage box, install a new roller on the trailer. Now I have to go fishing after seeing the pictures. Plus I talked to Jeff from Ohio yesterday. He was at the hopewell ramp waiting for the weigh in to start at 5:00. Rumors flying of loads of 50+ pound fish. I bough the Lund so I could fish downstream so a downstream I'm agoing!! Hope to post a picture of two. I know nothing about that part of the river so it will be a hunt for bait balls and drop a hook and see what happens kind of day. Taking my rain coat!!
