We got to the James at 4:30 pm got on the water by 5:00pm Looked for bait. Failed miserably. Saw Rollo cruising the river. Seems to be about the same size as the Muskingum. I am sure it gets bigger the further down we go. Went down river, tried the gill net. 1st time no luck. 2nd time one end went in fine, other end was a little deep and pulled floats under. We caught 4 big shad, cutters they call them here I believe. Came back up close to the ramp and set up shallow (12-20 feet). Skip caught a 12 lb blue. Shawn and Tony missed their chance. Moved deeper and Skip caught an eater as did I (Shawn) Got cold and came in. Went to dinner. Will meet Captain Hugh in the morning at 6:30 am. Shawn Dostie reporting live for WBOC. We will have more news later.
