I fished the james basically for the first time sat eve, first cast was a 2.5lb smallie next eight casts caught 3 more around a pound. I was pumped to say the least!! I then set up on my fav cat hole and caught 4 channels between 3 and 8 pounds. I kept the 3 and 4 pound cats for a Sun morning brunch:smile2: Can't wait till the weekend!!!!!!!!!!
