I cant seem to catch any blues with any size to them, except a 22lber from a little lake. I have tried every rig I know of, and used everything from shad and herring to worms. I catch tons of 1-5ish pound fish with the ocasional 10lber. I am limited to the shoreline because my jon boat get tossed to much on the mighty james river. I have tried fishing 100yards off the shore with my surf rod and right at my feet. nothing big. I read on here of guy going out and catching 20, 30 and 40 pound fish, whats your secret?
