    Took a trip up to the James last night and did pretty good. We put in at Dutch Gap and fished all night. Caught one 50 #s and probably fifteen from 7 - 10 #s. All were caught using live bluegill and white perch. No takers on shad either cut or whole, however we didn't have any live shad. Tore up a $100.00 casting net, but hey, that's fishing. All fish were CPR as is our usual practice. A real satisfying night after a long dry spell. Tight lines everyone.

    I guess you gotta pay to play (the net I mean). That area seems to be the place to catch the huge ones. When it gets cooler you will be in business.
