    Well unfortunatly my luck has turned. No big ones today even the bite on the little ones was slow. Biggest today was a 15 and while the anchors were out I think every seagull in VA was feeding around us totally against all I've seen and heard cause while they fed no fish were caught. Still a good day on the river.

    I always take my light Penn Spinning reel and a bucktain this time of year hoping for Stripers under gulls. Like you I saw a kazillion Gulls hitting the water last Monday eating small Threadfin Shad but no love from the stripers.

    Kenny dont feel bad, me and my friend went out yesterday for a while and the gulls were everywhere also. We bounced around the river and only boated 6 fish, 7LBs being the biggest. I did lose one good one but hey it was still better than working lol. To top it off the Warden gave my friend a citation for no throw float ring, even though we had life jackets
