    The extreme weather will usually have a high pressure system with it and it will put the fish in a negative attitude and also they will go deep into the water column to relieve the high pressure on their swim bladders. This is something that I have been tracking and over a period of time have had the results prove out.Now if you had been able to fish the days befor the front hit you would have sacked them up I feel.

    if you go on bank fishing, then you have to find deep holes. I have heard about they fishing on low james in winter time by near Hopewell. Best thing to use cut bait shad or alive.

    It doesn't matter what the conditions are, be it water or weather. The fish are biting some where. I have seen it to many times during tournaments.

    Is the guy with the DuraCraft a member on this board? That boat looks really familiar.
