    Jim...not Hugh or Randy...but thought I would send you this link if you are staying at the Super 8 in Chester, VA on Southland Dr. Make sure to hit the F11 key after clicking so you can read the directions. It will read good if you print it out:

    We didn't have the luck they had but we didn't get skunked either. Went this wknd to Deep Bottom, caught ok bait, already had some. Didn't do much that morning, just learnig because of first trip. Around 2:00 started on some small ones 10 lbs or so, then the rod went down hard. Nice 33 lber. Rebait, 10 mins later, same rod, same hole, 31 lber. Not much size after that. Went this morning found a good hole and wore out the 10 lb range, then a nice 24 lber. Overall a pretty good first trip. Thanks for the tip guys. here are some pics of the 30's.

    Good report Adam, and thanks for the pics. Was out Saturday, biggest was a 24.

    Getthenet, not sure which Super 8 you're referring to. If it's the one across the street from Hooters, I would recommend against it. Kind of a run down joint. There was alot of in and out traffic the night I stayed there...makes me wonder if they do hourly rentals.:crazy: For about the same price, you can stay in the Comfort Inn right down the road from it on the left. Very nice motel, plenty of parking for your boat in the back(request a room facing the back so you can keep an eye on your boat), and they have a great continental breakfast. They charge extra if you go in with two people, so just go in by yourself and rent the room and say it's for one person.

    Hey Barry, I'll probably go w/ ya'll, but I think I will stay w/ those Flatheads. Don't know much about the big water on Buggs. Hope you can me own the Blues like the James. I'll let Brian know for sure this week.
