    I am planing on coming to the James the weekend of April 28th. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on where to stay. I'd like to keep my boat docked in the water for the weekend but, am willing to make short trips hauling the boat to and from the hotel/motel. I don't need anything fancy, just somewhere to shower and nap. Thanks!:big_smile:

    Me & my buddies are planning the same trip a little later on - looking forward to some responses, especially where we can leave the boat in the water overnight.

    I usually stay in Hopewell where there are any number of motels.Depends on where you are going to launch.Also most of the guides dont fish much in May because of the spawn and the bite being off.Right now is the prime time to get after the big ones.:smile2:

    You guys may be able to work a deal with either Jordan Point or Hopewell to leave the boats in the water ,but i would not leave anything of value on the boat. Just my $0.02 worth.I work too hard to lose my Zebco 202's
