    Well got off work around noon and decided to try my luck. Hit the water arond 130 and bait was difficult again. Finally around 3pm I started fishing with 5 cutters in the bait box. Only fish 2 holes, but it sured paid off. Within 5 minutes of all rods in they were bending. After a short fight I landed a 51lber , stayed there another 20 min with only one other dink. Moved not 50 yards to 2nd hole and bamm again another nice fish. This one fought a little better and finally weighed in at 54lbs. Sat there a little while longer and decide to call it a day around 430. I would say not bad for a few hours of fishing on a nice day.

    Very nice indeed. We are all so lucky. I pinch myself sometimes at what a fantastic river the James is. Less than two weeks and shad will be in downtown Richmond. Stripers right behind them.
