    I am heading down from Upstate NY in a week for our annual fishing trip. We fish the Chick and have done pretty well on 10-25 lb fish, our two biggest were 43 and 48lbs. This year I am bringing my bigger boat and would like to try the James River. I want to break 50lbs.the James looks like the place to try. Is there any hot spots that I can get to near where the Chick and James meet? Or should I trailer the boat and launch somewhere else? Also does anyone ever use Sucker Fish for bait, up here in Lake Champlain they seem to be the best bait. Do you even have Suckers In VA.? Thanks. Only one more week to wait. Still ice in the Lake Up here.
