Now that it is colder shouldn't it be pleanty of shad in the warm water outflows? Down near woodbridge the power plant no longer pumps warm water because it was switched over to natural gas, so I have been told, and has been void of bait the last 15 times I have been in there. Use to be a sure bet for bait. Now up river I dont really know the water that well but I think there is a discharge on the va side just above the WW and of course there is blue plains. I remember years ago seeing tons of gizzards at BP. I am not sure what the laws are up there but one good throw of a cast net will cover the bait for the day for 3 boats.
