    No problem with bait in the morning had enough in 45 min.Went down to the tukey island cut and picked up a 30lb fish.Then went down the channel around the island and got a couple of small fish wind was picking up.Went to the high bank by the pumping station and my daughter did it again and got a nice 48lb fish.The wind got worse and we got off the river.Deep Bottom again tomorrow.

    Wind was a bear today but it was nice outside. I am glad to hear you caught a couple of nice ones. I won't be able to fish tomorrow or Wednesday. I have to do a short trip out of town.

    My brother and I put the whale tail on the Mercury and took her for a test run on the upper James. You were 100% right. It keeps the front down and gets her on plane faster. Good luck tomorrow. Wishing I was fishing.

    Great catch. I know you need a license for a gill net, what about a cast net.
