kdrennon7 and myself went out on the James today. We launched and went for bait, we had to set the gill net out a few times before we finally had enough bait for the day. We set up on some structure and it wasn't long before we had several 20+ cats in the boat. We was fishing 8-12 foot water on the incoming tide. About 11am the monster hit and the fight was on. Kenny asked me if I needed the net and I told him that I might need it but wasn't sure so he continued to eat his chicken. As the fish got closer and finally started to surface, he said yeah I think you need the net. Well, we got the monster in the boat and got a weight on him. It was my personal best at 62 pounds. What a fish! Headed back out tomorrow to hunt for the one that broken our 80 lb test line 2 weeks ago.
